Amazon Prime now includes free 2 day delivery to Ireland

I honestly didn’t see this coming. Amazon now offer free 2 day delivery to Ireland with no minimum spend if you are a Prime member. I expected Amazon to start including free standard delivery to Ireland as part of prime but they’ve gone one better and included 2 day delivery. All items eligible for Prime delivery and eligible for delivery to Ireland are included however some items will not be eligible for free 2 day delivery but instead will be free standard delivery.

Previously, Amazon offered free ‘super saver’ delivery on orders over £25 to Ireland and charged for standard and priority delivery. These fees still apply if you are not a Prime customer. I have previously written a post about the other existing benefits of Prime from an Irish customer’s point of view.

It’s also worth noting you can sign up for a Free 30 day Trial of Prime and if you turn off auto-renew before the 30 days are up you won’t be charged anything. It’s a great way to find out whether you’d get value being a prime member.

Since Amazon has launched this benefit I’ve made several Prime eligible Amazon orders. Amazon orders sold by a 3rd Party but dispatched by Amazon are included. As you can see the vast majority of my orders have been delivered by An Post.

* These packages are still in transit and are estimated delivery times.

Overall I’ve been very happy with Amazon Prime 2 day delivery to Ireland. Previously I would wait until I was purchasing over £25 worth of products before ordering to get the free delivery. Although the free delivery was sometimes 10 days +. It’s worth noting not all items are available for Irish delivery some items are banned including Alcohol, Liquids, some TVs and Prime Pantry.

If you are purchasing a Prime eligible item from Amazon and are not a Prime member you should sign up for the Free 30 day Trial of Prime to get free 2 day delivery!
