Posted by · 4481 views · Translate
Amazon today expanded same day and next day shipping to thousands of additional cities and announced cut-off dates for Christmas shipping. Prime Free Same-Day Delivery and Prime Free One-Day Shipping are now available to members in more than 8,000 cities and towns up from around 5,000 previously.

To find items eligible for Prime Free Same-Day or Prime-Free One-Day shipping, Prime members simply look for those logos next to product listings or filter using the check box located in the filter menu. Select free same-day or one-day shipping at checkout and eligible orders over $35 will be delivered for free. Prime members receive same-day and one-day orders delivered to their doorstep for free, seven days a week – even Sunday. Eligible same-day orders placed in the morning arrive between 6-9 p.m., orders placed in the evening, or through the one-day option, arrive the next day.

“We are continually investing in Prime, adding more selection and making delivery faster and more convenient. In fact, in 2016, the last Prime Free Same-Day order from Amazon.com delivered in time for Christmas was ordered at 10:23 a.m. on Christmas Eve. The order included Venum Contender Boxing Gloves, and was delivered to a Prime member in Richmond, Virginia at 2:42 p.m. – the very same day, for free,” said Greg Greeley, Vice President of Amazon Prime. “Even if you are not currently a member, holiday shoppers can try Prime for free for 30-days and get two-day, one-day and same-day shipping for free. We offer a variety of options for customers to receive their products when they want and need them, delivered right to their door.”
