Membership of Amazon Prime is Dhs 16 per month, or a one off annual subscription is available at Dhs 140 saving over 37% over the year.

An introductory offer for monthly subscribers running until 31 October offers membership at Dhs 12 per month. Still not sure? All customers are invited to a 30 day free of charge trial without any commitment.

"We are excited to provide UAE customers fast, free delivery on products from Amazon UAE and free international delivery on products from Amazon US," 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."

Ronaldo Mouchawar, Vice President of Amazon MENA added "We are thrilled to bring Prime to the UAE just one month after the launch of Amazon.ae. We are working hard every day to expand our product range, give customers even greater value, and continually improve the shopping experience here in the UAE. With the addition of Prime, customers can now enjoy the most convenient way to shop, access unlimited and award-winning entertainment, and shop exclusive deals on Prime Day."
