Amazon Same-Day Delivery expands to six more cities
One of Amazon’s faster-growing innovations is the Same-Day Delivery service with new “Get It Today” capabilities. That service is now available for customers in Baltimore, Dallas, Indianapolis, New York City, Philadelphia and Washington DC metro areas.
There are over, “a million eligible items now available for same-day delivery,” according to the company, which made the announcement of the service earlier today.
As of Wednesday, August 6th, customers can order as late as noon, seven days a week and get things like popular movies, video games, last-minute travel needs, back-to-school supplies and family necessities delivered to their home the same day.
“Imagine how much time you will save now that you can get sunscreen, memory cards, toothpaste, hit movies, text books and HDMI cables all delivered to your home in hours, seven days a week, in one order from Amazon,” said Greg Greeley, Vice President, Amazon Prime. “New convenient pricing also allows Prime members to fill up their same-day shopping cart with everything they may need for one low price. With more than a million eligible items, we aim to offer the largest same-day selection at the lowest price.”
Customers who search or browse the Amazon product selection will find the “Get It Today” filter on the left-hand navigation panel, just below the “Amazon Prime” filter. They can select “Get It Today” and see only those items eligible for Same-Day Delivery. A similar “Get It by Tomorrow” filter will allow customers to discover millions of additional items that can be delivered the next day.
Prime members pay only $5.99 for all the same-day delivery items they can order. Pricing for non-Prime customers remains unchanged, with a $9.98 fee for the first item and $0.99 for each additional item.
