Amazon now offers same day shipping


amazon-logo With the holidays fast approaching, Amazon sure knows they’ll be more last-minute shoppers than any other season so they’re rolling out their newest service – same-day shipping.

Not everyone will be catered to this service though as there are of course distance matters to take into consideration so if you live say, in San Francisco, sorry. 🙂

Areas covered by Amazon’s Local Express Delivery include Seattle, New York City, Philadelphia, Boston, Washington DC, Baltimore and Las Vegas.

Cut-off time for their packages to be delivered on the same day varies per area. Shoppers living in Seattle can place their orders as late as 1:00 pm. Those who live in Las Vegas have to place their orders by 11:00 am. Citizens of Boston, Washington DC and Baltimore will have to have their orders placed by [10:30] and the remaining NY and Philadelphia will have to place their orders by 10:00 am.

Amazon plans to extend the service and may include Phoenix, Indianapolis and Chicago soon.

The Local Express Delivery from Amazon will not however, ship on weekends. Sorry shopaholics. 😉
