Mastercard & Borderfree Promo for Singaporeans

Plus sized fashionista living in Singapore but want to buy from top US retailers? You need to read on!

Before I moved to the US, I always shopped online if I wasn’t travelling overseas. Local blogshops solved only part of my problem and while there are increasingly more shops in Singapore stocking plus-sized clothes, they tend to look similar. The brutal truth is I didn’t really want to look like every other fat woman on an already tiny island.  Also, blogshop items tend to be of a certain quality, so sometimes even if you find something cute that fits, it doesn’t last too many washes.

Of course, buying overseas means you also have to pay for expensive shipping BUT from now till July 14, 2014, Mastercard and Borderfree have teamed up to provide you with the opportunity to skip that bit!

What this means is that if you buy using your Mastercard, you don’t have to pay shipping charges! You only need to chalk up a minimum spend of USD$100 to qualify! That shouldn’t be too difficult right, ladies? And you could always share the purchase with a friend!

There are 9 top US retailers involved in this promotion for Singapore AND for your convenience, these are the ones that stock plus sized apparel:

·         Bloomingdales

·         Land’s End

·         Aeropostale

·         Eileen Fisher

·         Elie Tahari (up to 16 only)

·         Lane Bryant

Best time for Plus Sized ladies in Singapore to shop for stuff you can only get in the US without incurring extra charges! My tip is to go through the sale or clearance section first. Afterall, even with free shipping, you want to get the best deal right?

Don’t forget to use (or borrow) a Mastercard and enter the code MCSHOP at checkout!

ppssstt this is not a paid or sponsored post! See! I so good right? Don’t say got good things never share hor?
