About buying stuff at Amazon US:
1) Amazon provides shipping service to Singapore address for certain goods only. Easiest way to check if you have specific item in mind is to set your default Amazon account address to some SG address, and then go to the item page. You will see a line being displayed "We are not able to ship this item to your default shipping address. " if that item is not eligible to be shipped to SG.

2) If your order is more than USD 125, and for certain items only, your order will be eligible for FREE delivery to SG. However, the only way to tell is to put the things into your cart, and then click on "Estimate your shipping and tax", or "Proceed to Checkout" and see the shipping cost. 

3) Free shipping to SG is only possible if you select "FREE AmazonGlobal Saver" delivery option. Other shipping methods are not free.

4) Some items are not eligible for free shipping, even if your order is more than USD 125. Usually bulky items. i.e. you don't have the "FREE AmazonGlobal Saver" option available during checkout. You really have to try out yourself.

5) If your order total value (incl. shipping) > SGD 400, you need to pay 7% GST. Amazon will charge the amount first. If your order is close to SGD 400, Amazon may also charge a tax deposit, which may be refunded to you if there is no tax in the end, but I am not sure as I have not had this scenario.

6) Usually the warranty is US warranty, so if anything happens, you have to ship the item back to US, which may be expensive. Certain products have international warranty but it is not apparent from Amazon product page. One well known case is EVGA products, which can do RMA at Taiwan (shipping fee still applies).

7) You can return the items within a certain period (30 days but could be longer, talk to their customer service first). If you do so you will get a refund but you have to pay the shipping cost which may be expensive. However, if you are returning it soon after you have received it, because it is defective, Amazon will refund you your shipping cost (estimated amount) too, which is good. To be sure, always talk to their customer service first. If your return is not because of defectiveness, Amazon will not refund your shipping cost.
