Can you save money?

Yes, provided you don't travel to Dubai too often. - May 20, 2016
Yes. Very much so if you stay out of the malls. - Nov 9, 2015
Maybe some, but since the danger pay has been removed I do not think so. - Oct 27, 2015
Yes. - Oct 15, 2015
Yes especially if you have an inflated salary. - Jan 23, 2015
Yes, if you don't travel too much. - Sep 28, 2014
Yes, absolutely. I had been told that you simply must get out of here every four weeks in order to be able to stand it, so I thought all extra money would go for travel. We have been here six months and haven't even felt the urge to flee. Food, however, is expensive, as is having to furnish houses at your own expense with the basic necessities. - Mar 26, 2014
Yes you can. - Dec 4, 2013
Yes. - Oct 9, 2013
Yes, but you'll spend it on holidays, because you need to get out every 3-4 months, or you'll go mad. - Mar 17, 2013
Yes, but you may spend it on traveling out of the kingdom. - Apr 7, 2011
Yes. - Jul 27, 2010
Yes. - Mar 29, 2010
some, but dropping. - Jan 18, 2010
Yes, especially with the benefits package that USG people get. Just don't get too depressed and impulse-buy on Amazon to keep yourself entertained! - Dec 29, 2009
Yes, but you need to get out every 6 weeks which can be expensive. - Oct 21, 2008
Yes. - Aug 6, 2008
