Amazon UK have a great offer for Australian and New Zealand residents, until mid August you can get free shipping on orders over £25. That means free shipping on all orders over $40AUD.
Shipping can often be a bit of a pain. After planning an order at a price you're happy with, you suddenly remember shipping and sometimes your order can double. That is why free shipping can be such a great deal, you always know how much you're going to pay and can shop to your hearts content.
Amazon UK has got a great range of books, CDs, DVDs, and blurays. These are the only things that qualify for free shipping, but there will be plenty to choose from. Some good things to look for are British television shows. Old favourites like classic Doctor Who episodes, or comedies like The Office and Little Britain can be bought for a fraction of the price. You can even buy some things before they're released in Australia.
Books are another great buy, especially when you've got free shipping. Not only are books generally cheaper on Amazon, but usually shipping will cost you an arm and a leg because they're so heavy. So stock up on all your favourite reads.
There are a few formalities to keep in mind. You must select the FREE Super Saver option when prompted to choose a shipping option. The free shipping is only available on books, movies and music, you'll have to pay for shipping on anything that doesn't qualify. You can read the full terms and conditions over on the Amazon UK website.
To make the most of the free shipping, do your research. Things aren't always cheaper overseas, make sure that there aren't any local sales that are offering you a cheaper option. Always pay attention to the exchange rate, while the Australian dollar is doing well at the moment it still isn't worth as much as the pound, so make sure you're converting. Check out things like box-sets, books, and anthologies, these are things that will usually accrue a high postage. Make the most of the freebies.
