At least , Singapore is allowing people to use alternatives now. I buy a lot of books and Amazon USA helps a lot. I am also able to get supplements etc from there which is hard to find here. Without Amazon, I would be paying far more for the same stuff. I also like Shopee n Lazada but for local stuff.
I remember my wife wanted a Samsonite laptop bag. In Singapore it was 250$. I got from Amazon UK for 150+30 shipping. Yet 70$ cheap.
Those who don’t innovate will suffer. From paying 100$ for internet and cable to StarHub, now we pay 40$ to StarHub and 50$ to streaming services.
I welcome choices which are customer friendly.
Yes, thankfully Amazon stepped into Singapore...
I would buy a lot of things otherwise more expensive, glad that I could find them on Amazon, they're a godsend.
For starhub, I don't think I would like to renew their subscription after it ends. They are just losing their channels to companies who are streaming now ie: Disney Plus.

Thanks. I'll try to message the CEO on LinkedIn as well.
The amount of favourable resolutions I’ve achieved over the years by going directly to company CEO’s is too long to list. It is definitely the optimal approach.
Normally, even if you don’t get a personal response, you get put through to an escalation service that’s much more efficient than starting at the beginning.
Smart. I should try that sometime.
