Free shipping on the same day: This is how El Corte Inglés Plus works

The English Court Plus

We buy all kinds of products on the Internet: we do the supermarket shopping, we ask for gifts without leaving home or we do last minute purchases of all kinds. That is why it is more and more common for stores and applications to offer flat rate shipping to be able to receive orders without having to pay expenses every time you buy or add something to the basket. And that’s what it exists for El Corte Ingles Plus, a service that we will talk about in the next paragraphs.

Amazon has its Amazon Prime but it is not the only one that offers users an annual payment in exchange for free shipping. El Corte Inglés Plus offers same-day delivery on many products without having to pay for them to be brought to us, free home delivery on millions of products from different categories.

What is El Corte Inglés Plus?

El Corte Inglés Plus is the El Corte Inglés premium subscription or the flat shipping rate that allows us to have a series of advantages over other customers or buyers of the online store. It has a price of 19.90 euros per year, with annual payment, and its main advantage is that we have free shipping on all orders we make (with conditions, as we will see later) as well as other advantages such as discounts, returns, access to offers…

We can have free shipping on all orders with home delivery, with delivery on the same day or with collection at Supercor or Correos. In addition, the service includes 10% on the first purchase you make after contracting it, includes free returns, exclusive access to offers and promotions for Plus service customers.

We will mainly pay to have products without shipping costs regardless of the purchase you make. Not only with standard home delivery but also with free same day shipping on all orders over 40 euros and as long as the service is available in your city (currently available in about 54 cities) If the amount of the purchase is 10 euros to 40 euros, delivery on the same day is 5.90 euros, somewhat cheaper than the usual price.

What products can we buy?

Almost all categories are included in El Corte Inglés Plus so we can buy different products and join them in a single order. For example, we can order a toy and a book in the same order without having to pay multiple shipping charges and without having to place multiple different orders. Virtually all products are included in the flat rate and the categories o Sections or departments included are: Fashion, Perfumery, Home, Electronics, Computers, Appliances, Sports, Babies, Books, Music, Cinema, Toys, Videogames, Stationery, Pets, Gourmet Club and Primeriti.

But there are exceptions. Not everything is included. The categories are not included: Gift Card, Flowers and Gifts, Supermarket and Wine Club, or Market Place products. If we buy or add to the basket any product from these categories, the general and customary shipping costs will apply and the flat rate will not apply even if there are other fashion, perfumery, sports or baby products.

Once we have it contracted, there is no need to do anything else for the free shipping costs to apply.

We complete the order and that’s it. We must not mark anything special or specific for the flat rate discount to be applied or for El Corte Inglés Plus to start operating.
