Further, until 31 October 2019, monthly customers can enjoy an introductory promotional price of AED 12 per month.

“We are excited to provide UAE customers fast, free delivery on products from Amazon UAE and free international delivery on products from Amazon U.S.,” says Jamil Ghani, Vice President, Prime and Marketing International, Amazon. “Prime is designed to make the lives of members better every day. It’s only Day 1 so we will continue to make the program better through adding even more products and benefits to keep delighting customers in the UAE.”

Prime members will enjoy free next day delivery across the UAE with no minimum purchase on Amazon’s range of products. In addition, nearly 90% of the population will benefit from a 50% discount on same day delivery for products in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, Al Ain and Ajman. Domestic Prime-eligible products will come from 30 categories, including fashion, electronics, books, toys, consumables, and beauty.
