Amazon same-day service comes to 11 more metropolitan areas

Amazon Same-Day Service

Amazon’s same-day delivery service is now available to Amazon Prime customers in 11 more metropolitan areas.

Amazon on Wednesday announced that it’s bringing same-day delivery to a number of medium-sized cities, including Charlotte, Cincinnati, Fresno, Louisville, Milwaukee, Nashville, Raleigh, Richmond, Sacramento, Stockton, and Tucson.

Also up for grabs is new areas in Central New Jersey, Dallas-Fort Worth, Los Angeles, and San Diego.

Customers can log into their Amazon account to determine if same-day delivery is now being offered at their specific address.

Amazon’s same-day delivery is now available in 27 metro areas across the US or more than 1,000 cities and towns.

Amazon same-day delivery allows customers to order in the morning and receive their product by bedtime.

Same-day delivery is only available on a subset of Amazon products, but includes more than one million items across various categories including toys, game, home repair tools, health and personal care items, and more.

To use same-day, orders must total over $35.

Amazon Prime customers without access to same-day service receive free two-day shipping on all of their items.

The move to rapidly expand the program should worry local providers like Walmart and Target, both of whom are attempting to find new and exciting ways to lure customers to their brick and mortar stores and their growing e-commerce platforms.
