Amazon Prime India

Amazon Prime has finally arrived in India which makes 1-day and 2-day free for most orders with no minimum order value. You also get discounted same day, morning and scheduled deliveries.

Amazon is running a 60-day free trial of Amazon Prime so that you can weigh the utility of the new service and then it will cost Rs. 499 a year. Although this too is a limited period offer after which the prime would be increased to Rs. 999 a year. Flipkart also has a similar service, dubbed Flipkart First, but it failed to offer much to customers as only products sold under their own seller were eligible for free and discounted delivery.

With Prime, Amazon is not only looking to make customer experience better, with faster deliveries but the company is also planning to bring Prime Video to India which would allow us to watch Amazon Original series, movies and TV shows from both Indian and worldwide content providers.

Another benefit for Prime members is they would get 30 minute early access to Lightning deals along with some member-only exclusives.
