Online shopping is so much more convenient than actually getting out of the house to buy something. Best of all, you can even do it on the MRT on the way to work or while standing in the hawker centre lunchtime queue—talk about maximising your time.
If you’re a Singtel customer or thinking of becoming one, rejoice, because you can now get 12 complimentary months of Amazon Prime thanks to a current promotion.
We can already see Amazon fans pricking up their ears to ask how they can take advantage of this offer. Read on to find out.
Amazon Prime benefits
Any online shopper worth their salt knows that Amazon is probably the world’s most extensive online marketplace. You can buy anything and everything on Amazon, from Fitbits and laptops to clothing apparel and makeup.
The only problem is how to ship all these goodies to you. If you’re ordering on Amazon U.S., most of the products will obviously be shipped to you from America, which isn’t cheap. But with Amazon Prime, you will enjoy Free standard international shipping which allows you to save for more buys. Amazon Prime also makes it really easy to get hold of anything you need.
Let’s say you’re in the midst of preparing for a dinner party and forgot to purchase some snacks or ingredients. Getting out of the house to go and buy those things would be a huge waste of time, but with Prime Now, you can get them delivered to your house at an ultrafast speed of 2 hours. Not only can you use that time to prepare other things, you also don’t have to deal with lugging heavy items home on your own.
Here’s how you can become an Amazon Prime member and enjoy the following:
- Free International Shipping on millions of items from Amazon U.S. with a minimum spending of 60 SGD
- Free ultra-fast 2 hour local delivery on tens of thousands of items on Amazon SG with a minimum spending of 40 SGD
- Unlimited streaming of popular movies and TV shows, including award-winning, original Amazon titles on Amazon Prime Video
- Exclusive free game content, in-game loot and monthly Twitch channel subscription credits with Twitch Prime
As you can see, joining Amazon Prime lets you save even more money whenever you shop on Amazon thanks to the free shipping offers, and you also enjoy access to popular entertainment, game content and more.
