With holiday sales right around the corner, it gets harder and harder to decide how much of a budget you wish to allocate on shipping for every item on your numerous online wish lists. We know that you want the latest accessories for your brand-new iPhone X, those new Adidas kicks, and so much more, and with Shop & Ship FLEX, the “weight” is over!
Perhaps the biggest challenge customers face with online shopping in the region is paying for shipping. While many couriers charge you for the volumetric weight of your items, Aramex is changing the game. Recently launching the Shop & Ship membership plan, FLEX, this exclusive membership option arrives as the ultimate solution to our ceaseless appetites for shopping online, without having to worry about paying an extortionate amount of money on shipping.
With the new and exclusive membership option, Shop & Ship FLEX, get ready for loads of savings! First and foremost, shipping rates are calculated based on 100 gram weight breaks, versus the traditional 500 grams weight breaks, which allows you to save up to 90% on shipping costs compared to similar services offered by other couriers. This is perfect if you’re a frequent online shopper with a penchant for those little knickknacks you find on Amazon, books, shoes, and accessories, amongst many other things. For instance, if you have a 200-grams item being shipped, your calculated fees will only be 200 grams rather than 500 grams based on the usual weight breaks.
FLEX members also receive complimentary protection against the damage and loss of all shipments values up to $2,500 (KD 755). For those seeking bargain designer discounts, but worry that your goods could get damaged along the way, this complimentary offering truly alleviates those qualms. Usually, S&S customers, who have any shipment worth up to $100 (30 K.D. approximately), are protected against loss or damage, free of charge. They are then charged $1 for every additional $100 if they sign up for S&S Protect service. Do the math, and consider the peace of mind and savings you get when upgrading to FLEX!
This next benefit will delight beauty lovers everywhere. When signing up for FLEX, you get 25% off on S&S Perfumes and S&S Select service charges. This means more bargains when it comes to buying your signature perfume, hairspray, nail polish removers and more! Still stuck with gift ideas for the holidays for your loved ones? Sign up for FLEX and enjoy all of these amazing savings.
We also love the Smart Saver benefit with Shop & Ship FLEX, as this allows members to benefit from additional savings on packages when they are shipped together. Say goodbye to individual fees for your packages, as this benefit really allows you to stretch your online shopping budget even further.
Bought something with FLEX, only to realize that it’s not what you expected? Benefit from 30% off on Return Services. We personally love FLEX because it takes into account little nuances that always bothered the typical online customer in our region. While we see a world of appealing items and amazing bargains online, we are sometimes hindered by shipping costs and really unfeasible return policies. With FLEX, however, it is clear that Aramex is disrupting the current market with these innovative offerings.
For those of you with a keen eye on select items that you’ve considered too expensive to ship due to the item’s heavy weight, Shop & Ship FLEX offers an additional 20% off! For packages weighing in at 3 Kilos or more, more discounts on shipping make the bargain all the more appealing! We could personally count the number of times we’ve spotted amazing home accessories online at phenomenal prices, only to be discouraged by the shipping costs. If like us, you have a growing list of items you love on handmade and vintage haven Etsy, then this benefit can really bridge the gap between ‘want’ and ‘must-have’!
The all new Shop & Ship FLEX membership is competitively priced at US$119 (KD 35) per year for both existing and new customers. The membership benefits will give members more value and flexibility when shopping online globally. When you really think about it, and when you consider all of the additional benefits mentioned above, you not only save KD 35 per year, but also so much more! This is explained when you actually calculate all the savings you get with FLEX, which would quickly offset the annual membership fee for this all-new service in simply a few shipments per year.
If you’re a frequent online shopper, then consider the nightmare of insane shipping rates as officially over with Shop & Ship FLEX.
