You’ll need to be an Amazon Prime member to take advantage of the two days of deals, which costs Dhs140 for an annual subscription.

Including in your subscription, you’ll enjoy shipping benefits including free next day delivery on all UAE-based products, as well as a 50 per cent discount on same day delivery.

Following the official launch of Amazon.ae on May 1, Amazon launch of Amazon Prime in the UAE at the start of June. The launch of Amazon.ae came almost two years after tech giant Amazon bought UAE-based Souq.com.

At the time of the transition, Amazon promised that it would still be home to ‘everything you love about Souq’, giving online shoppers access to over 30 million products on the site, including access to 5 million products from Amazon US.
