Asos Provides Free Delivery Worldwide For a Limited Period !!

Last updated: 22nd Dec 2010

Woww ... my good friend who is a regular customer of ASOS  dropped me an email yesterday telling me that ASOS is providing free delivery worldwide for a limited period ! I thought she was kidding me... Well, I went to the website and was really surprised to see this banner on the website:

I hurriedly browse through the website. As I had previous bad experiences with the quality of the clothes at ASOS, I decided not to look at any clothes . The same good friend provided me a good tip that as long as I do not buy their house brand, the quality will be good! I went straight to Women > Outlet/ Clearance Brands to check out whether I could get any bargains ! I only needed to convert whatever I need to buy from UK pounds to SG dollars for this shopping experience! I do not need to add the shipment cost to whatever I wish to buy ! How often do you get an opportunity like this ?

Within 5 minutes, I chose this beautiful Fiorelli Lizzie bag, which was now selling for only £9.00. The original price was £15.00. I used to buy this brand when I was in Australia, but I didn't remember seeing this brand in Singapore.  Is this bag nice ? I bought the cream one as the pink one was out of stock. Immediately after I put this bag in the basket, the item appeared as out of stock.

For ASOS , once you have placed the item in your basket, the item would be reserved solely for you for 2 hours. If we do not "checkout" within 2 hours , the item would be available for other customers to choose. However, deep in my mind, I wasn't sure whether ASOS  would provide free delivery for just one item. I wasn't interested in other items, and thought that this was sufficient for me since I had already spent quite an amount at Forever 21. I continued to proceed to check out and was pleasantly surprised that ASOS really did not charged me for any delivery cost for just one bag to Singapore !!

For now, I just have to wait patiently for my this bag! I received an email telling me that my bag would be "Delivered on or before Monday 06 December 2010" ! Yippy !

Added on 2nd Dec 2010 >  I received my package today ! I am pretty impressed with the packaging and delivery this round ! The only part which I am disappointed is the color - cream. It appears to be rather dull. It isn't as bright as what I have seen in the picture earlier. However, I still love Fiorelli bags and is very happy to have gotten it at a bargain. So  I won't complain much ! Got to clarify with all the readers. The quality of ASOS stuff really depends on the brand.

After I placed this order, I excitedly shared the news with my hubby's good friend who has been telling me to help him place some orders online as he hasn't got any time to go shopping for new clothes. I excitedly shopped for him and by night time, we ordered two French Connection tops for him. One French Connection Polo T and one French Connection T-shirt. Aren't they lovely ?

And the best thing is they aren't expensive !! They cost around SG$30 each !!!! I got these two pieces of clothings under Clearance sale as well with no delivery charges !!!

Added on 21st Dec 2010: After waiting for more than a month, my friend's order finally arrived ! The FCUK tops look exactly like what we saw online ! Yippy ! Improved my opinion of ASOS despite the delay. Have a look at the clothings:

I wanted to place another order for my hubby after receiving the tops, but ASOS has stopped offering free worldwide delivery : ( That is so disappointing ! Thought the promo would last till Xmas...
