Shopping in Singapore can be expensive as you may well know if you’ve spent any amount of time living here so shopping online is usually the cheaper option and nowadays a lot of online stores are providing free worldwide shipping. Buying a microwave from an online shop based in the UK and having it shipped to Singapore for free can surprisingly be cheaper than buying one from your local electrical shop! So I’ve compiled a list below of my favourite online shops with free shipping to Singapore that I purchase from regularly and have saved me heaps!
Also Singapore customs have a GST (Goods and Services Tax) relief of up to S$400 so you don’t have to worry about expensive customs charges!
Book Depository (Books)
I buy all my books from here as books are ridiculously expensive in Singapore and are usually around double or triple the price that you would find on Book Depository. Even when I was back in England, I would usually get my books from here as it would be cheaper than buying it in a shop and most of the time even cheaper than Amazon! They are a long-established online book store and stock over 12 million titles. Delivery to Singapore for all purchases is completely free and it usually takes around 2-3 weeks to get here.
Look Fantastic (Hair & Beauty Products)
I get the majority of my skincare and hair products from here as it is so much cheaper than buying it in Singapore (a lot of the time around half the price) and they also stock a lot of brands and products that they don’t have here. Look Fantastic are a major online beauty store in the UK selling thousands of hair and beauty products, customer service is excellent and delivery is quick and free to Singapore for all purchases and takes around 2-3 weeks to arrive. They regularly have special offers, discounts and free gifts with purchase too.
MyVitamins (Vitamins & Supplements)
MyVitamins stock a huge range of vitamins and supplements, prices are much more affordable than you would find in any shop or online store in Singapore and tracked delivery which takes only 1-2 weeks to arrive is free if you spend more than £120 (around S$250). Even if you don’t want to make a big purchase, shipping is only £1.99 (around S$4) or £3.99 (around S$8) if you spend less than £15 (around S$31).
The Hut (Department Store)
The Hut is a British online department store and I’ve bought everything from toothpaste to a toaster from here. They have a huge range of items across fashion, health & beauty, entertainment, homeware, gifts and technology. Prices are competitive and a lot cheaper than you would find in Singapore. Delivery is free for all orders which is amazing considering how heavy household items can be! They also have regular discounts and promotions so if you’ve just moved to Singapore or are giving your home a bit of a revamp, then your best bet would be to get everything from here!
Myprotein (Sports Supplements)
If you’re a complete gym addict like me then this is the website for you! They have every possible sports supplement available under the sun. I get my protein supplements from here and they have a good range of yummy high-protein snacks too. You get free tracked delivery if you spend £100 (around S$210) and it takes roughly 1-2 weeks to get here.
DVDs are expensive here not to mention that there doesn’t seem to be a place where you can shop from the comfort of your own sofa and buy DVDs online in Singapore! Zavvi to the rescue! 🙂 Zavvi which was formerly known as Virgin Megastore has a massive range of DVDs at much lower prices than you would find here and they also sell games, technology, film memorabilia and gifts. Tracked shipping is free if you spend £120 (around S$250) otherwise it’s only 99p (S$2)!
LightInTheBox (Bits and Bobs)
LightInTheBox is a website that sells anything and everything from phone accessories to wedding dresses! They have over a million different items and prices are crazy cheap, things can be as little as S$1.50 including free delivery! It is an online store from China that has become really popular over the years because of it’s low prices and it’s safe and reliable to shop from. Quality is good too and the same as you would find elsewhere since nearly everything seems to be made in China nowadays, even iPhones! Shipping may take longer though, around 3-4 weeks but considering the money you’ll save it’s worth waiting for. If your order is more than around S$70 then your shipping will be upgraded to a faster delivery service. I’ve found this website great for buying things like screen protectors for my mobile phone and other random items!
I do most of my clothes shopping online as I find that the shops in Singapore are mostly the same old high-street shops that you would find in England but at a much higher price. I actually get most of my clothes from an online store based in the US called ModCloth as they have the cutest dresses, very unique and comes in all sizes but unfortunately ModCloth don’t give free shipping to Singapore except for maybe once or twice a year when they have a free international shipping promotion. I’ve purchased from ASOS (As Seen On Screen) a couple of times and they have a lot of trendy celebrity-inspired fashion for both women and men. Shipping to Singapore is free for orders over S$50 otherwise it’s S$7.50 and arrives usually within 3 weeks.
Mankind (Hair & Beauty Products for Men)
This is one for the men! I’ve only shopped here once for a present for my dad as Mankind is an online store where you can find male grooming and hair care products. They are a British online shop under the same parent company as Look Fantastic (see above) and prices are just as fantastic 😉 They also regularly have special offers and discounts and delivery is free to Singapore and worldwide so you can always send a present to a friend or loved one.
Amazon (Entertainment & More)
Last but not least the list wouldn’t be complete without Amazon! Nowadays Amazon sells just about everything and it’s usually the benchmark that I use to compare prices when I buy something since Amazon normally has the best deals. Shipping to Singapore is free for orders over US$125 (around S$180) but some items on Amazon are unable to be shipped to Singapore. For more information on this, visit this page.
