Amazon's Free Shipping to the Philippines

I have been wanting to shop from Amazon for the longest time but I'm too stingy to pay for the exorbitant shipping fee so I have not pursued that desire of mine then. So when I read the news about Amazon's free shipping to the Philippines, my heart skipped a bit because I can finally shop without having to worry about the shipping cost.

So how to shop without having to pay for the shipping? It's simple! Just make sure the total cost of your items is $49 USD and above. That's less than 3,000 in Philippine peso.

My Experience with Amazon

I placed my order on October 20. I paid my order using my HSBC MasterCard. Note that the credit card conversion from US dollar to Philippine peso is higher than the current exchange rate. In my case, the total cost of my order was $50.62 and my credit card was charged Php 3074.52. That is more than Php 60 for $1 USD.

Below are the items I ordered.
