Amazon has announced that it’s making its Prime membership program, which currently has around 150 million members around the world, available to consumers in Saudi Arabia.

“We are thrilled to announce the launch of Amazon Prime in Saudi Arabia, providing customers with the best of shopping and entertainment,” Ronaldo Mouchawar, CEO and co-founder of Souq.com, the largest e-commerce platform in the Arab world, owned by Amazon, Inc. “Customers in Saudi Arabia can now enjoy all the benefits included in this program, starting with free and faster delivery times,” he added.

More specifically, the Prime membership comes with free one-day shipping to all key metropolitan areas; free two-day shipping to cities such as Jubail, Khamis Mushayt, Hail, Abha, and others; and free delivery to all other areas 4 to 6 days.

In addition to free local delivery, Amazon Prime members can order international items from Amazon.sa and have them shipped for free in 2 business days from Amazon UAE or 7 business days from Amazon US (eligible for orders over 200 SAR).

If free shipping doesn’t excite you much, then you might be happy to learn that Amazon Prime membership also includes non-shipping benefits. Prime members can watch popular movies and TV shows on Prime Video (complete with Arabic subtitles and dubbing), get exclusive gaming content on Prime Gaming, and enjoy attractive shopping deals throughout the year.

All this and more for just 16 SAR per month with monthly billing or 12 SAR per month with annual billing (140 SAR in total). New members can sign up for a 30-day free trial to see what the service is all about before spending any money on it.

Due to environmental and safety regulations, as well as rising costs of insurance and fuel, the cost of car ownership has never been higher. While modern public transportation systems in many countries already provide an attractive alternative, the recent COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted their limitations. Fortunately, there’s another option available: long-term car renting, and McKinsey predicts that it will generate almost 30 percent of the automotive industry’s revenue by 2030 thanks to startups like Carasti, which has just launched its service following a successful pre-Series A funding round last month.

Based in Dubai, Carasti describes itself as an all-inclusive car subscription app that removes all the hassle associated with car ownership, such as service and maintenance, while preserving all the benefits.

“Our subscription model aims to make car ownership as flexible and affordable as possible, providing our customers with an easy alternative to car ownership,” explains the company’s CEO, Claudio Esposito-Aiardo. “There are no hidden costs, no extra fees, and no financial surprises. We simply don’t believe that you should be weighing yourself down with debts, bank loans, and payments just to drive a car.”

Carasti users can choose between two distinct subscription models. The month-to-month subscription model provides access to a variety of nearly new cars with a monthly, 6 month or yearly commitment. The mini lease subscription model lets users choose a 12 or 24-month plan on a brand-new car.

Regardless of which model you pick, you always have to provide only your Emirates ID, driving license, passport copy, or visa copy. All subscriptions include insurance, maintenance, roadside assistance, and flexible car switching. Carasti supports both Android and iOS devices, and your first car can be delivered to you in as little as 4 hours from downloading it.
