[Prime, Hack] $0 International Expedited Delivery on Prime Eligible Items from Amazon US/UK (No Min Spend, Was $49) @ Amazon AU

25295

I noticed this little trick to get free international delivery being discussed again in the It Takes Two deal, and realised I haven't seen it posted as a deal before so I thought I'd post one.

It's been known for a while now to some, but for those who don't know what to do, simply add a different item (or multiple) sold by Amazon US or UK to your cart to hit the $49 minimum spend and place your order, then cancel those items and you'll still get free shipping for the item/s you want.

Amazon US store

Amazon UK store


Mod: The OP has asked us to remove the deal, due to the reception it has received from some members. However we have kept it published, as it appears to be of benefit to many. Thanks

      Lets keep quiet about it.

      I've been doing this for years and have only mentioned it in comments a couple times for this reason, $10 Amazon US items etc, I hope this post doesn't get too much traction.

        What is everyone's go-to Amazon product for this?
        (I reckon something worth 50 bucks then cancel.)

      Thats true but the voting guidelines suggests that its not a valid reason to neg the deal. The 3 reasons are:
      - The deal is not the cheapest available
      - Issue with product
      - Issue with retailer

      https://www.ozbargain.com.au/wiki/help:voting_guidelines

      I think this is still a good deal for people that don't know. Its like neging a deal because you don't want it to be sold out.

        That only applies if this is a deal in the first place. Is this a deal or is this a hack?

                  @iamherenow: oh yes it has been going on for a while now, but the stupid people keep ruining the party by talking about patches and loopholes and down votes etc, some don't want others to find out lol, some are so stupid they don't realize that if Amazon ever patched it it will save them some money because they probably wont get lured in to buying more stuff thinking they are getting free postage. enjoy the thread, isn't it fun?.

        Yeah right! I've also head shops want you to steal so that when police come, the police might buy stuff, and therefore stealing results in profit.

          To be fair without saying this is right or wrong, how is this different to other posts of massive price errors (which caused loss to the stores), or hacks for getting cheap Netflix, Tidal or other services that people signed up with fake email or physical addresses? Or buying stuff at educational prices when they don’t qualify? Would the same people down vote those deals too? 😉

          Good , system is built that way to stop people like you chopping and changing things simply because you get swayed by what others are doing.you can’t make firm decisions so your vote doesn’t really count.

            @sammyla: Bro I said accidental upvote. It was unintentional. That's an unnecessary comment.

            •

      I've always had problems finding items cheap at the UK store .
      Any tips to combat the 40% + surcharge from OZ beside this deal if spending peanuts?

  • +1 vote

    I put through an order last week and was thinking about cancelling a whole order that was split between Amazon US and UK to do a slightly different one, and when I went to cancel half of it, it said that if I did it could affect other items in the order, I can't remember what it said exactly, and I decided I didn't want to cancel it anyway. But when I did the same thing a few months earlier, I don't think I got that message. So it might already be in the process of being patched, they just have a fake warning message up now and will stop it for real soon. I am just speculating.
