They were shipped in a very big box. Same with a previous item i ordered. Box used could fit two of the same item.

Anyways, i got a rebate of almost $20 thru their chat support. Ok na ako. Hehe

Nung una $5 lang binibigay pero i insisted. Sabi ko either pickup-in nila ulit yung items or compensate me for the shipping charge.

Previously kasi via chat nag apologise lang kesyo to ensure items are safe kaya malaki box.

Thanks sir

Got the confirmation email na. Really happy with Amazon!

    Here's the breakdown of your refund for this item:

        Item Refund: $18.32
        Item Tax Refund: $1.74

We'll apply your refund to the following payment method(s):

MasterCard Credit Card: $20.06
MasterCard Credit Card: $20.06

We've processed a refund for the above order in the amount of $20.06. In most cases, once a refund has been submitted, the issuing bank will post it to your account within 3-5 business days when issued to a credit card. Refunds issued to a bank account or pin-less debit typically take 10 business days to reflect on the account balance. This time frame may vary from one financial institution to another.

alam ko first month lang normally ang free. pwede mo naman idiscontinue yung prime para hindi ka ma autocharge pagdating ng renewal ng prime membership

I use Amazon prime once a year when I travel to the US, the trick is use a different email every time you register for the free trial - you get one month free, along with the free two-day shipping, then after receiving my orders, I discontinue the trial :)

So love Amazon! was not happy with one of my purchases and even though its already almost 2 months past since the transaction was completed (had item shipped via My-shopping box), they still refunded me $27!

They did not even ask me to provide them the pictures of the item i had a complain about.

The best talaga ang experience ko sa customer service ng Amazon. Nag order ako ng isang batch ng items. Mali yung isa so pina-RMA ko doon sa cargo forwarder yung wrong item. Binalik nila lahat by mistake. lol

Kahit yung isa lang ang pinapa-refund ko sa website, automatically nilang ni-refund lahat nung na receive nila na items without any intervention from me so it was as simple as re-ordering the other items without much delay kasi free two day shipping naman since naka Prime trial pa ako.

In another case, finollow up ko yung isang order ko na medyo late. Napaka responsive at helpful yung CS chat nila. Walang matagalang at paulit ulit na chat session, resolution kaagad.

Much better experience overall kumpara sa Lazada.

Sana talaga matuloy yung Amazon SEA branch.

does the courier still charge extras for taxes from the amount billed by Amazon if the package is delivered locally?

Yes. Lazada is basically Alibaba, A Chinese company. Not going to buy anything from them

If more than 10k in total kasama shipping meron duty fees if less than 10k from total bill no duty fees.

Sample na computation pag more than 10k kasama shipping fee sa duty fees computation.



Duty fees include import tax. Amazon uses UP courier so yung item direct sa bahay deliver.

Kaya naniningil na si amazon ng duty fees pag more than 10k kasi di na dadaan kay post office. Kaya ung mga maliliit na item like blurays eh puwede na direct basta less 10k ang total.

Sana nakatulong ang info na ito para less ang gastos sa pagbili natin/shopping.

and it actually takes a week at the most ata to get delivered. comparing the possible shipping cost with using a 3rd part shipper na 30-45 days to get delivered, parang 500+ lang difference. pwedeng pwede na!

nanginginig na kamay ko!!  ;D ;D ;D

I tried direct shipping once with a sub-P10k order a couple of months ago. Okay nga! It only took 4-days from ordering to arriving direct to my door.

Minsan kung ifafactor pa natin yung cost at time ng shipping to the US-based cargo forwarder warehouse, plus yung shipping going to the PHL, lumalabas na mas mabilis na yung direct at mas mura pa. Great for small items.

That said, pag medyo marami or malalaki na items at yung total value is above P10K, tapos kung free shipping domestic US shipping naman, sa cargo forwarder pa rin ako dumadaan kasi may package consolidation din sila.

On another note, excited ako haul ko itong nakaraan na Black Friday at Cyber Monday sale, nakalibre na naman ako ng Amazon Prime one-month trial since over $300 ang total order. Got some LPs, SSDs at rock-bottom prices at hard-to-find tech gadgets na wala or overpriced sa Lazada at Shoppee. Nag bigay pa ang Amazon ng additional automatic discounts and coupons na applied on checkout. Nice!   :D

Amazon SEA, where are you!  ;D

The last time that I ordered from Amazon and had it shipped direct instead of using Johnny Air, it took 5 months to receive my item! Good thing the vendor was kind enough to offer a free replacement, though I eventually was called to the post office after the 5 month period.
