Kindle Singapore Shopping Guide – The Fastest and Cheapest Ways to Get It

For a person who loves to read, the Kindle is no doubt the perfect device to own, with its small size and lightweight frame. It can hold countless of books and you can read it wherever you go, whether you are squeezing in the MRT or waiting for your bus. However, in Singapore, you may find it hard to come across a physical store selling the Kindle, whether in the chain electronics stores like Courts or even at electronics and IT shows. In the past BQ has heard that you can find it at Funan DigitaLife Mall, but Funan has closed for renovation since the start of this year. It seems like it is available for sale at Sim Lim Square recently, however, BQ will not recommend buying there as we do not know if they are selling authentic Kindles or if they will over charge. The best place to purchase a Kindle we reckon, is online so let BQ show you where to get the cheapest deals and do a quick comparison between a few models such as paperwhite, voyage and oasis!

 

1. Lazada 

The top choice for buying it online locally is at Lazada. The Kindle Paperwhite that BQ ordered the previous time was delivered the next day! And the retailer even includes freebies such as screen protectors and protective pouches. However the latest Kindle model, Oasis is not available at Lazada yet, thus we have only listed prices for the current models: Paperwhite, voyage and 8th Gen 2016. The best time to grab deals is usually during mid year sales, around July/August or the year end sales around Christmas. Some shops will even have rebate offers. For the latest prices, you can check it at Lazada. BQ will keep you updated on any good promotions as well as coupon codes here!

Something to note: some of the warehouses are not located in Singapore, thus shipping may take longer. Do note the expected date of delivery before you place your order!

 

 

2. Amazon

The above pix shows the recent prices of the four Kindle models available on Amazon. With the recent promotions, the prices are lower as compared to Lazada's. However, do note that they usually sell the tablet alone and you will need to purchase the screen protector and protective pouches separately. There are more choices on Amazon such as a choice of colour between black and white, and whether you prefer the WiFi version or WiFi + Free3G one. If you want to use the Kindle on the go, you should choose the WiFi + Free3G version. You can check the latest prices of Kindle on Amazon, and BQ will update if there's any good promotions happening here!

You will require a third party forwarding service such as Comgateway or Vpost to ship your order from US to Singapore. There are usually no major issues, however a small number of our readers have encountered their Kindle being damaged during forwarding process, thus you will have to consider if you want to take the risk before you purchase. If you are not familiar with how the forwarding service works, you can read our article here to find out more!

 

 

3. Ebay 

There are many sellers on ebay selling kindle at prices cheaper than on Amazon. There are some price differences between different sellers, however it is not very significant. You can also get 2nd hand Kindles from some sellers. The good thing about buying from ebay is that you get direct shipping, and the shipping charges usually range from SGD20 to SGD40 depending on the seller.

If you want to receive your Kindle as soon as possible, no doubt Lazada will be the best place for you to buy your Kindle. If you want a White Kindle or a cheaper deal, head to Amazon or ebay. Keep yourself updated on the freight forwarding promotions at BQ.sg so that you can save more on the shipping charges!
