[Prime] Free Expedited International Shipping On Prime Eligible Items (No Min Spend) @ Amazon AU

3330

Was just checking out a few wishlist items and found that Amazon is currently running free international shipping on all Prime items regardless of order value. Just bought an $11 item with no shipping fees (usually around $20).

Checked with a few random Prime items from overseas and it appears to be working for all. It may only be items shipped and sold by Amazon US however.

Combine with the up to 12% Shopback and you've got a good deal.


Mod: Duplicate exception. "The duplicate gains an excessive amount of positive votes (50+) and the original deal was posted more than 24 hours ago." Original deal. Guidelines.

    Didn't think of this as a bargain, haha. I ordered some screen protectors and case for my mi 9t pro from a US seller couple days ago and received free expedited shipping, which was a bonus.

    Does anyone know the carbon impact of express vs standard shipping. Is it more or less? Just curious.

    •  

      Express probably has less due to possibly being a more direct flight - rather than trucks to another depot and flights via everywhere for a 'standard' cheaper solution.
      Otherwise don't know.

      Same route so about identical

    •  

      Both would be identical to within a 2% standard deviation.

      Irrespective of whether or not an extra set of 3m Command Picture strips from Amazon are on any given route, the planes are still gonna fly, the cows are still gonna fart and seasonal climate change will continue to impact marginal differences to the weather, just as they all have since their inceptions.

      The carbon impact of manufacturing super glue or the solvent required to dissolve it off the latest unemployed virtue signaller stuck to a road would likely have a larger impact on life as we know it…

    You mean 'expedited'? Since even 'standard' is air-freighted to Australia it shouldn't make any difference in CO2. Going to 'priority' might add a few grams since I assume it will be air-freighted domestically too.

  •  

    Ordered two packages once from US, one with standard shipping and one with "expedited" as I needed it quicker, both came on the same day. Looks to me more of an attention grabbing marketing gimmick than any real benefit?

    Does the free shipping apply to an overseas address other than that of the prime account?

    Many items in my saved list aren't prime egilible anymore, although they still sent by Amazon US.

  •  

    How does returning items work? Would I have to post something I’m not happy with back to Amazon US or could it go to Amazon AU?

      I think you can post it back to AU, but if your reason for returning it is just 'not happy' rather than an issue with the item I believe you'll have to pay the cost of return shipping.

      We recently returned an item bought from Amazon US. Although in our case item was faulty. Had to be sent back to US but they refunded additional $32 to cover the postage initially and we could claim more if it went over that (which it did).

    •  

      I had an item arrive damaged (it wasn't packed well enough and got crushed), and Amazon US just refunded me without even worrying about a return. They also offered me free postage for an alternative item of my choice. This obviously isn't the case for others, so I'd guess it depends on the price of your item and (perhaps) your purchase history.

    does Amazon USA Prime accounts still qualify for free international shipping? i am being charged for shipping for my USD70 purchases..

    •  

      It looks like the deal is still valid ("on Prime eligible orders").

    •  

      Tried 30 day free trial on US Amazon and was not able to get free shipping to Australia anymore.
      Annoying as there are a lot better deals for the same products compared to Amazon Au.

    Dam .. want this now … any chance it's coming back for Black friday / Christmas?
