Shopaholics of Dubai, rejoice! You’ve got three days to shop till you drop without paying a single fils of Value Added Tax (VAT). A luxury generally reserved only for tourists is now yours to exploit thanks to a special Dubai Summer Surprises offer. Their VAT-free weekend deal lets you indulge in some retail therapy at over 103 different brands across Dubai without paying the 5% VAT in UAE that is usually included in the price tags or the final bill.
An array of fashion, homeware, sports, electronics and accessories brands are participating in this promotion. You can shop VAT-free footwear from New Balance, Clarks and Sole District and purchase cosmetics and skincare from The Face Shop and Bath and Body Works. Clothing labels such as Debenham’s, Lululemon, Bossini and Splash are also participating as are home decor experts like Crate and Barrel, Chattels & More and others.
If jewellery and accessories are more your speed, then you’ll be pleased to know that the VAT-free offer is also valid at Aigner, Omega, Rivoli and Hour Choice outlets.
Essentially, you can shop for a fresh new wardrobe and reinvent your entire look using this promotion all while saving up on a sizeable amount. Your final bill at these stores will automatically reflect the deduction of the amount that counts as VAT in UAE.
The offer is valid for in-store purchases, so hightail it to these stores ASAP as the promotion is only running until July 9.
