In Amazon’s never-ending quest to make the human race even lazier, the online retail giant is expanding its Prime free same-day delivery. Prime customers (free trial) in Chicago, Orlando, and new locations in the New York City, Northern New Jersey and Philadelphia areas can now get orders of at least $35 delivered on the same day at no additional charge. Smaller orders qualify for the super-fast shipping too but are levied a $5.99 fee. If an order is placed after noon then it’ll be delivered the next day, but that’s still pretty incredible. Use the zip code tool on this Amazon page to see if Prime free same-day delivery is available in your town.
Amazon also announced that its one-hour delivery service now covers the San Francisco Bay and San Antonio areas. New Prime Now customers can get $20 off their first order of $50 or more with coupon code GETITNOW.
Prime FREE Same-Day Delivery is now available in 16 greater metro areas, accounting for more than 750 cities and towns, including Atlanta, Baltimore, Boston, Dallas-Ft. Worth, Indianapolis, the Greater Los Angeles area, New York, Philadelphia, Phoenix, San Diego, the San Francisco Bay area including Oakland and San Jose, Seattle-Tacoma, the Tampa Bay area, Washington, D.C., and newly added Orlando and Chicago areas.
