One of the perks of living in Dubai is its convenience and comfort – and a big part of that is the many home delivery apps available to residents, as well as tourists.
Having lived here for over a decade, we have found a handful of websites and apps that we often use for our day to day – be it groceries, electronics, clothes, shoes – basically anything and everything is deliverable in Dubai. Even petrol. It’s crazy, isn’t it.
Here’s a list of the ones that we use. Hope this will make your life in Dubai, a lot easier!
Well, Amazon is no new name to anyone. We use Amazon for – everything possible. The occasional ‘dry’ groceries that we can’t be bothered getting from the store ie washing powder, shampoo, toothpaste, to random groceries like cornflakes and coffee. They also sell electronics, clothes, beauty products, and lots lots more.
Tip : Amazon is great for toys and birthday decoration! Get your balloon packs from here!
Shop at Amazon.ae
Noon is another one similar to Amazon. It has mobiles, beauty products, appliances as well as fashion. We occasionally use Noon – to compare prices between the two. Sometimes Noon has products that Amazon, doesn’t, and vice versa.
Bonus – use code : JKER for cashback when you shop there!
Shop at Noon.com/uae-en
