Amazon Prime launch in Singapore

If you are an avid online shopper, this giant brand name Amazon is no stranger to you. Amazon Prime is now available in Singapore today on Wednesday 6th December 2017, with Amazon announcing the launch of Amazon Prime in Singapore. Prime is Amazon’s popular membership program that provides exclusive access to benefits such as fast shipping, streaming and gaming.

While I am not an avid online shopper, I do visit Amazon once a while for “window shopping”, keeping a lookout for good deals. With Amazon Prime now available in Singapore, it gives me the opportunity to enjoy Amazon Prime and its services.

What are the benefits of Amazon Prime membership in Singapore? Here are some information on the Prime membership benefits:

  • Free Two-Hour Delivery with Prime Now: Following the introduction of Prime Now earlier this year, customers began enjoying exclusive access to Prime Now benefits and can continue to enjoy those benefits as part of their Prime membership, getting ultra-fast delivery on tens of thousands of items with free two-hour delivery on orders over S$40, between 10am and 10pm daily. Items range from groceries to electronics, including a variety of new brands added to Prime Now since the launch such as Sunshine, Bebe Bamboo, Archipelago Beer, Kat Food, Razer and more.
