Post Online Shopping - That is in English & Good

All,
I'm trying to compile a personal list of all the good online Sites that we can use in Spain. Now it doesn't have to be just Spanish Sites, it can be Sites from other Countries that also ship to Spain...

Sites such as Electrical, Clothes, Household Furnishings to name only a few..

Please, if anyone out there has some "good links" please help me out
Cheers - DSB.

Amazon is now pretty good for shipping to Spain. The postage rates are usually cheaper than they would be from a Spanish company.

The problem is that a lot of their stuff comes from associated companies, many of whom do not ship outside the UK.

The Amazon German site is better for this as most of their associates ship to Spain.

Other UK companies are M&S and Littlewoods.

For printer ink I use www.inkredible.co.uk who have free postage to Spain.

For dietary supplements www.simplysupplements.net are cheaper than Healthspan with free postage.

In Spain I have used www.electroprecio.es for TV and electronics.

For PC stuff www.alternate.es

For a similar option to Amazon then www.pixmania.es is OK but some people have had problems in the past with customer service.

El Corte Ingles have a good online store.

For kitchen stuff www.cocineros.info and www.cristaleriasgarcia.com

Is that website not owned by the Dixons group, if so it may explain it.

PS I thought this question had come up recently

I did a ditty thread a while ago regarding online suppliers for stair l.e.d's btw.
This one I'm looking for a broader range for my own needs..

I found a great company in Malaga, very helpful, delivery was completed in 2 days. Below is the link :-

Yes, they are now part of the Dixons Group but they had a bad reputation before they were taken over. I don't know if it is any better now.

You're right - the subject was covered a couple of months ago

http://britishexpats.com/forum/showt...nline+shopping

Maybe we will get a few more links on this thread.

Maybe DealerBSB might like to put together a list in due course and I can put it in the Free Beer sticky.

You mean that Dixons actually improved the service?

I have been told , by an authority higher than a super mod, that the free beer will go in the end. The wiki is the way forward.

I didn't say Dixons improved the service, merely that the complaints were around before they took over. I have not used them since so have no idea what the current situation is.

As for the free beer thread, that's news to me. To be fair, it hasn't been updated so much recently but a lot of info is still current.

As a Mod I can put a thread up there as a sticky any time.

But everybody is too lazy to put anything in the WIKI, I only had a few people even give me stuff to put in the free beer thread.

I added the info to the Wiki about the ITV as I could do it.
I had to ask Sue to add a Wiki page to The Netherlands 'cause I could not do it. Once it was up I could make the additions I thought would be handy. However it is a free for all so one day I can see all hell breaking out on them too.
