Marks and Spencer offer

11/21/2009 - 10:01

When I first moved permanently to Italy one of the few things I missed was Marks and Spencers. It was still there of course, but would not deliver to Italy. Well, I moaned at them on a regular basis, and to my delight, I have just ordered some clothes from there and they have not only delivered to Italy, but the whole order only cost £5, and it arrived in two days! I have never had anything arrive from the UK in two days! This £5 offer only lasts until Christmas, but it is well worth using it!



They have been delivering to Italy for a couple of months but the usual cost is 9.50,( per order) which is ok if you want lots but pretty grim if you only want 1 item.I assume its only clothes, don't think they'll send a sofa for a fiver, but if they do I want one!Next euro and dorothy perks also del for £5 ( have used both and they both gave speedy service) so Italy has joined europe at last!now what about Tesco and Sainsburys (if only)

There is a special offer of £5 delivery at the moment, as londonlass says - see website - though it is not totally clear it seems to be per order not per item.  There is also a specal offer of 1p delivery to UK addresses! the Help section there is the following info about what is delivered internationally and what is not plus other info about International Delivery.  Sorry sofas are not!!  It still seems a very good offer!"Which products qualify for international delivery?Womenswear, Menswear, Kidswear, Lingerie, Accessories, Jewellery and selected Home and Beauty products.Please note that many countries have import restrictions on certain products or materials.  Customers are responsible for checking with the local customs authorities before placing an order for international delivery.  Marks & Spencer cannot offer any assistance in this process.Which products are excluded from international delivery?Food, Wine, Flowers, Gift Cards, Hampers, Furniture, Electrical, Lighting, Technology, Large Appliances, Made to Measure shirts and selected beauty products.  See individual product details for more information."

We have used M&S for a couple of months with great delivery times. The Next site I feel is a bit of a rip off as you pay a good 30% more for the same product in th UK. With Dell, be advised that any product ordered/shipped to Italy will be with the Italian operating system, so make sure your fluent in the language if you will need to alter setings on the computer. Dell will ship an English Operating sysetm PC/Laptop to Italy but they will charge you £51  shipping from th UK. Happy Shopping.....pity the Off Licence round the corner doesn't deliver; I fancy a large bottle of Natch Cider to watch the Rugby with.....
