Amazon just announced that it's expanding same-day delivery into six more cities: Baltimore, Dallas, Indianapolis, New York City, Philadelphia,and Washington D.C. These cities have been on Amazon's list here for months, but are just officially getting the offering apparently.
The "Get it Today" capability is available for over a million different items.
The feature enables customers to order something as late as noon, any day of the week, and get things delivered that very day. Prime members can get this for $5.99 for all eligible items. Non-prime members can take advantage for $9.98 for the first item and $0.99 for each additional item.
Conveniently, there's a "Get it Today" search filter, so you can search specifically for things that you can actually get that day. It can be found under the Amazon Prime filter.
Eligible items include those in the following categories: household needs, health and beauty, baby items, toys, movies and games (including new releases), electronics, office supplies, sporting goods, apparel, and home accessories.
“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 of 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.”
Same-day delivery is already available in Los Angeles, Phoenix, San Francisco, and Seattle. Amazon's list (linked above) also includes Boston and Chicago.
