I ordered a packet of Nachos for 35 to make the overall amount 499 and it came in a huge box in fedex separately. My watchman went bonkers getting to know it was just a pack of chips in that box

It isn't a bug.

Amazon is currently offering free delivery for orders that have a beauty product.

You can add a Fair and Lovely face wash for Rs. 25 to get free delivery!

By 100 bucks, i meant 100$


See if your total order amount is 100$, ask them to mark it as 20 or 30$. Thats it.On top of that ask them to mark the parcel as gift. Customs wont bother you.

I have purchased multiple items bundled into one package valued totally over 100$ and they reached me without hassles

Incase you are looking for iphone 6S, prices are much more believable now. Other than that, the prices have gone up for the older iphones as compared to the dussehra/diwali sales. The Galaxy S6 and edge are selling at excellent VFM prices now: 35 and 44k respectively for the 32GB variants, in local brick n mortar stores.

Yes. The S6 seems to be steal deal now. I am planning to buy it January, unless there is an awesome offer going on.

A general question from my side regarding ali. How long does it take on an average to reach Bangalore by the free shipping method?

Sorry, but I did not get a response to this query. These are the items that I plan to order. If this is not possible - any other alternatives?

Small value items do not attract customs duty. Go ahead with your order

Yes, have noticed the same. Also, anyone with an idea how to track Singapore Post - once it has reached Indian shores? I am not able to track after this.
