Amazon.com shopping with Ruwais delivery

| Ruwais, UAE | February 9, 2015

I have recently discovered something interesting while shopping online on Amazon.com . It is probably old news for frequent online shoppers, but i think it is a good tip that everyone can benefit from. I will explain more in the following review.

In a previous article : Online shopping solutions for Ruwais i have mentioned the SnS service. While that service is crucial for online shopping from around the world, i mainly use it to shop from USA, on amazon.com. The SnS warehouse from USA is in state of New York, and all sales (including online shopping) are subject to a specific 8.875% local tax. What can we do to avoid those taxes ? We can change our freight company, we can select to buy from other sellers or we can have our orders delivered directly to our country.

Still, If you like shopping from amazon.com with SnS, i guess that you also tend to get the FREE Super Saver Shipping option on your purchases. So we are willingly accepting to wait 7-10 days to have the order shipped to our USA freight address in order to not pay additional shipping charges. Then we accept to wait another 4-5 working days to have Aramex deliver the package to our UAE location.

Online shopping solutions for Ruwais

| Ruwais, UAE | September 16, 2014

If you are living in Ruwais and you love online shopping, you will have a hard time getting your packages delivered to your door step. For example souq.com, Carrefouruae.com or SharafDG.com will not ship to Ruwais, because it is very far from Abu Dhabi (roughly 200 km+). But that is not going to stop us.

In order to take advantage of the online deals you have 3 choices:

1. Signup for Shop and Ship service from Aramex. Through this service you can get packages delivered to Ruwais from all over the world at an additional cost. Charges depend from where you get your package delivered from (USA, Europe, China, India, UAE) and how much the package weighs. I strongly do not recommend this when buying heavy home electronics (TV, fridges, washing machines)

2. Drive to Abu Dhabi to personally collect your packages from the couriers’ office. Here are a couple of courier offices where you can collect your online shopping packages.

This is the Aramex new office (on the old airport road / in the al jazira stadium area)

This is the Q-Express office in Mussafah.
