A few of my friends have been raving to me about shopping on iHerb.com for health supplements, organic snacks and baby products.
According to them, the items that we would normally find here in Singapore is priced MUCH LOWER on iHerb and that shipping is FREE for orders over $40. The only thing that put me off back then was that the estimated delivery time was between 1-2 weeks. This might not work for me on occasions when I need the products urgently. Locally, some items can be found on Qoo10 as well and it takes just a few days to be delivered.
It wasn’t until lately that I browsed through iHerb again, and found that the supplements that I usually buy for Crystabel – either from the retail stores or on Qoo10 – were so much cheaper!
I was completely sold and started accumulating items in my shopping cart immediately. (Tip: It really doesn’t take much to accumulate a minimum of $40 on iHerb)
Savings on iHerb.com
To demonstrate the type of savings that you can expect to enjoy on iHerb, let’s take the Sambucol For Kids supplement that I usually stock up:
On iHerb, a 120ml bottle costs $15.48. Buy 4 bottles and save an additional 5%, making it $14.70 per bottle.
On Qoo10, this same product is selling for $19.90 per bottle and to qualify for free shipping, you’d need to spend $60 and above on products by this seller.
As mentioned before, shipping is free for orders above S$40. However, in instances where you don’t meet this minimum the shipping rates are quite reasonable as well.
So, for example if you were to buy 4 boxes of Almond Milk ($5.56 each) which totals up to $22.44, the calculated shipping cost for this order would be $5.54. I think this is quite standard and just a tad more expensive that shipping rates on Qoo10.
Upon checkout, the estimated delivery date will be indicated on your order. This is usually 2 weeks after payment has been made.
But for my case, I was pleasantly surprised to find that my package arrived after just 1 week.
