This is a very useful tool for those who buy from Amazon and are just below the free delivery amount.

Say minimum for free delivery is 15.....and the item you want is 14....Amazon will charge you 1.45 for shipping !!

Use this site... www.filleritem.com/uk

For the USA version just leave off the final /UK !

(sheesh !..I'll do it for you in case you don't know how to not write '/UK ' www.filleritem.com)

It really works !!

The problem with this, and Amazon, is that it will only work if you buy from Amazon and not more than one individual seller. I have purchased items from Amazon only to be charged multiple delivery charges because the items were from individual shops / seller.

Yes, it does work if just buying direct from Amazon.

Neil I use Amazon a lot for purchases such as books, music CDs or some DVDs even the odd computer item as well.

But I prefer to find them in my own way as I do know what I'm after.

Rosalind,

The tool is designed specifically to just make up the difference to enable you to NOT pay for postage !..that's all.

Of course, you buy what you want, but if you find that you are just a few pounds short of getting free delivery from Amazon then this tool enables you to get something that makes the difference up.

Say you're just 2 short of getting free delivery...use the tool, enter in 2 and voila....you have an extra item whereas you would have had to pay the same amount for delivery instead !

I'm now disappointed.

I thought it was a long way to deliver goods from this shop!
