We Scoured Amazon US and Found These 10 Useful Home Products

November 25, 2021
BOOKMARK

Time to get trigger-happy.

With more e-commerce platforms offering worldwide shipping, it’s never been easier to purchase items not otherwise available in Singapore. With that, we’ve rounded up a list of 10 useful home products from Amazon US that:

  • Have no official online/physical store in Singapore
  • Are not available on Shopee Mall
  • Are not available on LazMall
  • Can be delivered to Singapore
  • Are definitely worth camping out for during sale periods

But first, what’s the difference between Amazon SG and Amazon US?

  • When delivering to Singapore, Amazon SG usually comes with free or lower shipping costs than Amazon US
  • Amazon US has a much wider selection of products
  • Amazon US is known to have massive year-end sales, more so than Amazon SG

Our take: even with higher shipping costs, it’s still possible to pay less on Amazon US thanks to its extravagant year-end sales, or simply because products are priced cheaper. At the time of writing, items 1, 2 and 10 are available on both platforms, but are cheaper on Amazon US (even after shipping). All other items listed are only available on Amazon US.


1. Fusion Black Pro Massage Gun

Amazon US

Speed up your post-workout muscle recovery, or relax after a long day with this portable massage gun. Listed under Amazon US’s Holiday Gift Guide, this quiet deep tissue massager comes with 6 attachment heads and 20 speed levels to choose from.

At the time of writing, this massage gun is S$50 cheaper on Amazon US (after shipping) than on Amazon SG because of a holiday markdown.

2. Bambamboo Sofa Armrest Tray Table

Amazon US

It may sound like an oxymoron, but it is possible to be a hardworking couch potato. Should you need the occasional change of environment from your home office, this sofa armrest tray table comes with an anti-slip surface and cell phone slot - perfect for notebooks and work devices. When the work day is up, use it to hold snacks and drinks while binge-watching your favourite TV series.

Pro-tip: if you’re really tight for space in the living room, consider getting this instead of a coffee table! Made of sustainably sourced bamboo, it can be adjusted to fit sofa arms of different widths.

3. Begona Freestanding Vertical Bicycle Rack

Amazon US

Avid cyclists looking for indoor bicycle storage solutions that don’t involve any drilling or renovation works, this one’s for you. This freestanding bike stand allows you to store your bicycle vertically, taking up less floor space than you would storing it horizontally.

4. Zampa Portable Foldable Pet Playpen

Amazon US

If you’ve got friends who don’t like the idea of your pets coming up to them while they’re visiting, this lightweight but sturdy foldable playpen makes for a great solution. It can be easily set up and packed down into a compact carrying case, which also makes it convenient for outdoor use as well.

5. Aibien Smart Baby Monitor

Amazon US

Never miss a moment of your toddler growing up. This WiFi-enabled baby monitor comes built with crying and motion detection features that trigger notifications to your phone, as well as a two-way talking function that lets you attend to your young ones even while you’re out.

6. HOMENOTE Self-Watering Plant Pots (6 Pieces)

Amazon US

There’s a fine line between over- and under-watering your plants, but that’s not an issue with this self-watering indoor planter. Its base comprises a reservoir, watering lip and drainage system, allowing your plants to receive the exact amount of water they need for optimal growth.

7. OMMO 6L Mini Fridge

Amazon US

Certain beauty products work best when kept refrigerated, but nobody wants the smell of food on the likes of your jade roller! In addition to being a hygienic option for storing skincare products, a mini-fridge in your bedroom also makes it extremely convenient to get a cold bottle of water in the middle of the night.

8. Hamilton Beach 4-in-1 Indoor Grill

Amazon US

From burger patties to pancakes, this versatile appliance can cook it all. With 3 interchangeable non-stick plates, the grill cooking area can be switched to a double (flat) griddle, grill/griddle combo or a splatter-free bacon cooker with a simple push-button mechanism.

9. Sowtech Espresso Machine

Amazon US

The last thing a coffee-lover wants is to invest in an expensive espresso machine, only for it to become a white elephant. Rather than risk it, try your hand at making your own cuppa with this affordable entry-level espresso machine (with a milkwand, no less) before committing to something more costly.

10. Prepara Herb Savor Pod 2.0 (Set of 3)

Amazon US

Herbs don’t usually last for more than a week even when refrigerated, which is a waste as it’s hard to finish an entire packet in such a short period of time. Short of growing your own herb garden, these herb pods keep your herbs fresh for up to 3 weeks by submerging their stems in water. It’s no wonder they’ve been endorsed by Martha Stewart herself!


Before you start shopping...

Set your Currency of Preference to Singapore Dollars (SGD) when shopping on Amazon US, for a better indication of how much you’ll be paying. As prices are in United States Dollars (USD) and converted to SGD using live exchange rates, you may also notice that prices listed in SGD tend to fluctuate with each day. Other than that, happy shopping!
