With last week’s announcement that Amazon Prime has launched in the UAE, shopping has become a lot easier across the country.
And now Noon.com has scrapped delivery charges for all orders, no matter the value. That means customers can get everything from a pencil to an iPad delivered completely free of charge.
The shopping site is also offering a range of ‘Noon Now’ products which will be delivered free of charge on the same day. The free delivery deal is running until the end of July, so if you’re keen to get some bargains sent direct to your door it’s time to get shopping.
Noon.com’s announcement comes just days after Amazon launched its Prime service in the UAE, bringing residents premium delivery options, TV on demand and more. Members get access to free next-day delivery on hundreds of thousands of products, and, according to Amazon, “nearly 90 percent of the population will benefit from a 50 percent discount on Same Day Delivery on hundreds of thousands of products” in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, Ajman and Al-Ain.
The even better news is that not only is it comparably cheaper than in established markets like the UK (at Dhs16 per month or Dhs140 per year compared to £7.99 per month and £79 per year) and the US ($12.99 per month and $119 per year). Prime TV is also included with membership, with original shows like The Grand Tour, The Man in the High Castle and access to loads of other shows and movies.
