Amazon just launched their Prime service in India, making it the 8th country where Amazon Prime is available. The service will normally cost ₹ 999 (about $15) a year, but is currently being discounted at a special introductory price of ₹ 499 (about $7.50) a year. New members will receive a 60-day free trial, double the 30-day trial offered in most countries where Prime is available. Prime membership offers free one-day and two-day delivery, which normally costs ₹ 80-100 (about $1.20-$1.50), to over a hundred cities in India. Members in some areas, including Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, and Hyderabad, will also receive discounted same-day delivery. To sweeten the deal, Prime members in India will also receive 30-minute early access to lightning deals and other member-only exclusives. Amazon also says Prime Video will be coming to India soon.
