John Lewis UK

Postby Zeenit » Mon, 12 Dec 2011 6:24 pm

For all of us that believe there is no life without John Lewis, they now ship to Singapore and it took 4 working days until my JL box arrived.

They do not ship electrical goods but just check on the item and it will state if international post is allowed.

I am a happy person again- sad i know but hell it keeps me sane. :D :D :D

Its either £15.00 or £25.00 per shipment. But bearing in mind that the prices are half what you pay here its still cheaper. And John Lewis is wonderful. :D :D

The weight of a mobile phone will cost you 10 pounds anything over that phone weight is 15 pound and rises pretty damn quickly to 25 quid, so free shipping is a god send! :wink:

I had the same result as SMS in his now(?) deleted post - damned confusing lah. But if you go to the homepage of the URL it works fine.

Earlier every time I went to the "contact" link on the bottom .com site I would get a Singaporeexpats page with a 404 message innit.

When I went to the .co.uk site the contact link worked find.

Now they both work fine. ](*,)
