Free shipping came up as an option for my amazon order....haven't seen this before and not sure the qualifying criteria.

 

 

 

Good deal too, torpedo7 advertises these for $549 (currently on special for $412 tho), landed cost from amazon is $255. Huge savings in whatever case.

If you buy in USD, even on an NZD credit card, you usually save a little more. I tried it.

 

Interesting about the shipping. Maybe for high value stuff.

How about the tax once it landed here?

labs23: How about the tax once it landed here?


Amazon prepay all taxes so the cart price shown is the final price paid and delivered.

Cheers.




My views (except when I am looking out their windows) are not those of my employer.

That isn't quite true. They only appear to collect tax when it is near the $400 NZD (including shipping) value, (where the $60 GST would put it over the $60 collection threshold), but clothing (including footwear) has an additional duty, and customs will collect GST/import fees at around the $227 NZD mark on footwear as that is the mark where with the additional duty, it is put over the $60 threshold for collection.

I have to buy shoes there to get a decent fit for the spouse so this all is worth knowing.

Everything I can find on Amazon for Free GlobalShipping only mentions Mexico and Singapore

"If your order is at least $65 and being shipped to Mexico or at least $125 and being shipped to Singapore, you may qualify for FREE AmazonGlobal Saver Shipping."
