Don’t you just hate it when your weekend trip to the mall for some “retail therapy” turns into shopping nightmare?

Seriously, you can’t even step into H&M, Zara, Robinsons or most other apparel retailers without leaving disappointed (or outraged) that your fight against a horde of other shoppers ended in failure.

After all, there’s nothing worse than finding the perfect piece of clothing – only to realise that the retailer doesn’t have your size.

Yeah, that’s probably why more and more people avoiding malls in favour of sitting at home in front of their computers to make clothing purchases online.

Here are 5 online retailers that offer FREE shipping to Singapore:

 

#1 American Apparel

Website: http://store.americanapparel.sg/

Free Shipping with a $100+ SGD Purchase

The name kind of gives it away right? Yes, American Apparel is an American clothing manufacturer known for its trendy, “sweatshop-free” clothing AND infamous advertising campaigns.

Surprisingly, it’s one of the few American clothing retailers that have yet to build a physical store in Singapore (not that the current apparel retail market isn’t already oversaturated with American clothing retailers).

You can purchase the following clothing items at American Apparel:

  • Men’s Clothing
  • Women’s Clothing
  • Kid’s Clothing
  • Shoes
  • Accessories (Bags, Watches, Belts, Socks, etc.)

In case you missed it above, American Apparel offers free standard international shipping to Singapore for any purchase over $100 SGD.

 

#2 Rakuten.com.sg

Website: http://www.rakuten.com.sg

Free Shipping with a $60+ SGD Purchase

Japanese online retailer Rakuten is one of the largest e-commerce companies in the world. Only recently did it begin to branch out into other markets including Singapore.

If you’re looking for clothing that’s stylistically diverse – you can’t go wrong with Rakuten.com.sg as it features plenty of clothing options made by manufactures from around the world.

You can purchase the following clothing items at Rakuten.com.sg:

  • Men’s Clothing
  • Women’s Clothing
  • Kids & Baby Clothing
  • Shoes
  • Accessories (Bags, Watches, Belts, Socks, etc.)

While Rakuten.com.sg is a great place to find affordable clothing for both men and women – it’s perhaps more famous for everything else it sells including electronics, home appliances, furniture and even food items!

In case you missed it above, Rakuten.com.sg offers free standard international shipping to Singapore for any purchase over $60 SGD.

 

#3 Amazon

Website: http://www.amazon.com

Free Shipping with a $125 USD Purchase

Amazon holds the distinction of being the world’s largest online retailer. Singaporeans must have made a good impression on Amazon because it’s one of the nations that qualify for FREE AmazonGlobal Saver Shipping.

Of course, the bad thing is that not all purchases may apply (items 20lb or more, oversize items, kindle devices and accessories, etc.) However, most clothing items should fall under the FREE AmazonGlobal Saver Shipping criteria no problem.

You can purchase the following clothing items at Amazon:

  • Brand Name Men’s Clothing
  • Brand Name Women’s Clothing
  • Brand Name Kids & Baby Clothing
  • Brand Name Shoes
  • Brand Name Accessories (Bags, Watches, Belts, Socks, etc.)

Amazon sells just about any clothing-related item you can think of from a variety of recognised brand names (some of which might not even be available in Singapore). Not only that,  Amazon sells just about any item you can think of ranging from consumer electronics to health and beauty products.

In case you missed it above, Amazon offers free standard international shipping to Singapore for any purchase over $125 USD (roughly $156+ SGD).

 

#4 Asos

Website: http://www.asos.com

Free Shipping with a $40 SGD Purchase

The British online retailer Asos has rapidly become an e-commerce favourite among Singapore’s young men and women. In fact, at MoneySmart, we receive an Asos package at least every month (hey, we know a good deal when we see one *hint*).

Seriously though, Asos has the best free shipping policy of any other retailer on this list (aside from Zalora), as you only need a $40+ dollar purchase to have your items mailed to you free of charge. And that fact combined with quality-made, attractive clothing is what makes Asos so damn popular with Singaporeans.

You can purchase the following clothing items at Asos:

  • Men’s Clothing
  • Women’s Clothing
  • Kids & Baby Clothing
  • Shoes
  • Accessories (Bags, Watches, Belts, Socks, etc.)

While Asos does have its own line of branded apparel, it also offers clothing from a variety of recognised clothing brands (Nike, Ted Baker, Diesel, etc.)  as well on its website.

In case you missed it above, Asos offers free standard international shipping to Singapore for any purchase over $40 SGD.

 

#5 Zalora

Website: http://www.zalora.sg

Free Shipping with a $40 SGD Purchase

Headquartered in Singapore, Zalora is one of the top online clothing retailers in the region – and very popular choice for Singaporeans looking for a good clothing deal.

Much like its competitor Asos, Zalora is an online retailer that features some of the trendiest clothing at incredibly low prices. For savvy online shoppers, that’s not a problem but a solution as it gives them the leeway to pick the best from both websites while being able to take advantage of the low “free shipping” purchase limit of $40.

You can purchase the following clothing items at Asos:

  • Men’s Clothing
  • Women’s Clothing
  • Kids & Baby Clothing
  • Shoes
  • Accessories (Bags, Watches, Belts, Socks, etc.)

Much like Asos, Zalora offers its own line of branded apparel as well as numerous recognised clothing brands (Nike, Puma, Vans, Macbeth, etc.) on its website.

In case you missed it above, Zalora offers free standard international shipping to Singapore for any purchase over $40 SGD.

 

Final Note: An unfortunate part of buying your clothing online is that you need to be very careful about staying below at least $400 per purchase so you can avoid having to pay GST on your items.

So if you have to make a big purchase, make sure you break it up into smaller purchases spread over a few days just to be safe. Again, this is only if you’re intending to buy clothing for your own personal use.

Also, don’t forget that having the right credit card can earn you even more rewards when you shop online. Here are some of the best shopping credit cards out there today.
