At long last some good news from Amazon

Post Posted: Sat Nov 11, 2017 9:50 am

Some readers might be interested to know the following

To try it out I purchased from Amazon.es a pressure cooker that could also be purchased from Amazon.co.uk and the Spanish web site quoted a price £10 cheaper than UK plus free delivery to Portugal. I was quoted from the UK 7 days paid delivery and it transpired that the pressure cooker took just 48 hours to arrive from Amazon’s Madrid warehouse.
This purchase may have been a one off experience but let us watch this space.
In recent months I have switched quite a few of my purchases from Amazon UK to Spain because of the terrible time taken to get any thing delivered from the UK, this latest announcement is an added bonus.

Announcement

As from November 8, Amazon’s service centre in Spain will not charge shipping costs to those customers in Portugal who spend over €29, or €19 on books.
The Spanish on-line subsidiary of the US giant explains that customers in Portugal will have access to "more than 165 million products across all categories" without having to pay postage charges.
"Some of the fashion brands available from Amazon in Spain are the Zippy, Salsa and Tiffosi clothing brands, as well as Fly London footwear," but if these mean nothing to you, a search in the electronics or books section may be more enlightening.
François Nuyts, vice-president and country manager of Amazon.es said, "Portuguese customers will also find a selection of products on Amazon.es that are specially targeted to their preferences, such as local fashion brands and thousands of books by Portuguese authors."
Amazon confirmed that November 24 is Black Friday and customers in Portugal will be able to join in.
Those able to pick their way through the Spanish website also can find a wealth of books in English available in hardback, paperback and electronic versions.
Hardbacks from Spain may be more exensive than ordering from the UK - buyer beware and compare the total cost from both countries.
