I've been wanting to purchase a couple of books online.
I've narrowed down to 2 options...
Riceball, and Amazon.
The prices on Riceball are very competitive, but if i do a substantial order on Amazon, would I be able to capitalize more on their services instead?
I ask this question cos i'm looking at a US$34.00 book on the Amazon network (exclusive of shipping and handling charges), but was quoted $82.56 by Riceball and i had to wait 1 month to get my book.
No offence to Riceball, cos I'm very confident and assured of his service.
However, before I make a substantial order, I just wanna see what my options are cos if I take US$1 = SGD$1.8, then it seems getting from Amazon cheaper leh...
What's the handling charges and shipping charges like? Anyone ordered anything from Amazon who can help me in my decision making process?
I read something about a vpost.com.sg thing in the forum too.. whaddahell is that?
Bottomline is... I wanna buy books that are damn expensive at Borders and Kinokuniya. Riceball offers me a cheaper alternative relative to Basheer. But the conversion rates in Amazon is too damn tempting. I WANT TO BUY BOOKS THE CHEAPEST WAY POSSIBLE
Advice for me guys?
Thanks in advance
