11 new cities just got Amazon Prime same-day deliveries

amazon expands same day prime delivery into eleven new markets line wide
Pushing forward an aggressive expansion into eleven new markets around the United States, Amazon will now provide free, same-day delivery for Amazon Prime customers in those locations. Metro areas included in the expansion are Charlotte, Cincinnati, Fresno, Louisville, Milwaukee, Nashville, Raleigh, Richmond, Sacramento, Stockton, and Tucson.

In addition, Amazon is expanding the reach of same-day delivery in Central New Jersey, Dallas-Fort Worth, Los Angeles, and San Diego. With this expansion of the program, Amazon now covers a total of twenty seven metro areas within the United States. It’s a step that levels the playing field with brick & mortar stores in each area, basically removing the roadblock of having to wait more than 24 hours for your order.

Detailing some popular items ordered with same-day delivery recently, Amazon customers on Spring Break placed orders for SunBum SPF, Ray-ban Sunglasses, the Wilson Outdoor Volleyball, and the Kindle Paperwhite. For the Spring cleaning crowd that was working, popular items ordered included painter’s tape, handheld vacuums, and frame hanging strips.

Interestingly, Amazon previously charged Prime customers a $5.99 fee for same-day delivery in those cities. However, this charge was removed last year due to Amazon’s continued investment into fulfillment centers around the country. That being said, customers still have to place an minimum order of $35 and make sure the order is registered with Amazon prior to noon local time. Delivery of that order will take place before 9 p.m. local time, assuming the order is placed by noon.

If you are unsure if Amazon provides same-day delivery to your area, you can enter your zip code on Amazon here to check. When browsing for same-day delivery items, you can use the filters within Amazon’s search function to specifically isolate products that qualify for speedy delivery.
