It doesn’t come with the same fanfare as Black Friday (and thank f*ck for that), but those of you who like to hunt around for good deals online will know about Amazon Prime Day.
As you might have guessed, it’s a happy day for Jeff Bezos, who has seen his wealth skyrocket – again. Americans are known to go wild on occasions like these, but what does it mean for South Africans wanting to get in on the action?
Well, first things first, you need to be an Amazon Prime member. I’m guessing you’re not – no judgies.
You can sign up for a free 30-day trial here, which gives you access to the deals, and then you can cancel tomorrow at no charge.
As long as you cancel within that 30-day period, it’s all gratis.
From out of left field, but because we know you love your cats and doggos, there’s even a list on Mashable of the best deals for your pets.
I hear you grumbling at the back about products not shipping to South Africa, and you have a valid point. Certain products will and certain products won’t, but it’s a bummer getting your hopes up, only to see your dream come crashing down at checkout time.
Before I drop this next game-changer, I would like you to imagine me stroking my chin, looking knowingly off into the distance.
We may continue – guys, Postbox Courier will sort out all those worries. They offer a groundbreaking service that gives you a shipping address in the US, UK, Australia and Hong Kong.
So, if you’re buying products on Amazon Prime Day that don’t ship to SA, you simply provide Amazon with the US address that Postbox Courier gives you.
As soon as it is delivered there, which is usually the same day, then Postbox Courier will grab it and deliver it to your door in South Africa in three to five days.
They handle your parcel every step of the way – meaning it doesn’t get “stuck” at Customs here in SA, and they also make sure you don’t get stung with the wrong VAT duty.
There are no setup fees or subscription fees, because it’s a simple Pay As You Go service. Sign up here, get a shipping address in the US, let them handle the rest.
Look at you, enjoying Amazon Prime Day whilst the rest of us toil away at our desks.
