review of iherb.com: iherb discount coupon and delivery to singapore

10 Feb

been ordering health supplements online and found an online retailer that has a good range of products and very cheap shipping from US to Singapore.

go check out http://www.iherb.com for their complete range of products.

 

wide variety of supplements, cheap shipping.

Reliability and cost of delivery

i bought a few bottles of fish oil DHA capsules as a test purchase and chose the cheapest shipping available, USPS air mail. At just US$4, this is the cheapest shipping option but it is limited to orders up to US$80 and 3 lbs. This shipping option is untrackable, which means the package may (touchwood) get lost. ^^; My order took a few of weeks to arrive and the items were in perfect condition.

 

hello self-present from the interwebz!

more details after the jump…

then i made another purchase when my usual GNC megaman ran out. took advantage of the US$4 shipping again and received my package again without any issues. saved myself at least $10 per bottle. yay! :D

 

good bye GNC Megamen!

my most recent purchase was for two 5lbs tubs of whey protein and a 1kg bottle of creatine monohydrate. this time only the DHL or UPS option was available. the advantage of choosing DHL or UPS is being able to track your package, which means total reliability and virtually zero chances of your package being lost. good for your higher value orders.

the best thing is that even for such a big package at 15+ lbs, the DHL delivery charge to Singapore was still less than US$20. delivery charges inclusive, i worked out the whey protein to cost abt S$50+ per tub and the creatine, micronized and HPLC purity-tested, at only S$40+ for a 1kg bottle!

Prices

iherb’s product prices are a mixed bag compared to other overseas online retailers. however, iherb is almost always cheaper after factoring in the delivery charges.

Customer service

I didn’t have any problems with my purchases i.e. lost packages, wrong product delivered, etc, so I can’t comment on their customer service levels and responsiveness.

And finally, here’s an iherb discount coupon for first-time customers: just key in HUF884 when checking-out for a US$5 discount off your order. ^^

    How many days of the delivery to Singapore by the cheapest $4 shipping option, without tracking details?
