Default Amazon Prime same-day delivery is now free in 14 cities

Quote:
Amazon can get you a package in an hour, but if you "only" need it the same day, delivery is now free in 14 metropolitan areas. To get the service, you'll need to place an order of $35 or more and be an Amazon Prime subscriber at $99 per year. You'll also need to be in specific urban centers, including San Francisco, New York City, Los Angeles, Boston and Seattle/Tacoma (check your zip code here). The move is yet another carrot for Prime subscribers and probably a blow to brick-and-mortar stores, who now rely a lot on impatient shoppers.

My address is in the selected areas, too bad I don't have prime and with my once a week mail pickup routine I don't have the need for it, would be great for when I forget something and can buy it on Friday to pickup the next day when I go to the states

You might as well just move to the states.

I've never selected (or paid) for same day shipping from most companies (it's usually outrageously expensive). Only 3 times in my life have I paid a lot for 2-day shipping and all 3 times (different companies and couriers) the items took a week.

Never tried Amazon Prime...things usually take forever to ship to me in the boonies.

I did order some batteries from Dell before (free shipping) and they got delivered to my door in about 20 hrs which is the fastest I've ever experienced by far.

Prime for Canadians is kind of shitty. Most everything I've wanted to buy lately is only to be found from a seller in the USA and my items don't qualify for free shipping unless I buy a minimum of $40. Probably going to cancel the Prime trial unless something happens that convinces me.

That's funny, I also ordered some Sanyo XX batteries from Dell and it came super quick.

In the bay area, we've been seeing alot of next-gen delivery services popping up. It's pretty well understood here that the future of shopping will be nearly entirely online, with everything delivered to your home for free, with delivery times measured in hours instead of days.

That's what I ordered...8 on the newest generation Panasonic Eneloops and 8 of the Panasonic Eneloop Pro's. They're great batteries
