One of Amazon’s latest initiatives is being updated to get more items to customers on the same day that they deliver than ever before. Amazon announced today in a press release that it would be bringing “Get it Today” capabilities to its online store for customers in Baltimore, Dallas, Indianapolis, New York City, Philadelphia and Washington DC metro areas. With “Get it Today,” you’ll be able to order as late as 1pm local time (in select locations) and still receive any of the million-plus items eligible for same-day delivery.
In order to quickly find same-day items, simply search for an item, select the “Get it Today” filter on the left side of the page and any eligible products will appear in your results. There is also a “Get it by Tomorrow” filter for those of us who can wait a day.
According to the press release, “Amazon will offer same-day delivery for things like everyday household needs, health and beauty, baby items, toys, movies and games, electronics, office supplies, sporting goods, apparel and home accessories.”
If you’re an Amazon Prime member, same-day deliveries still cost just $5.99 for an entire order. Non-Prime members will pay $9.98 for the first item and $0.99 for each additional item. For more information on same-day delivery deadlines, head over to Amazon’s Help page.
