When I reported Amazon Japan’s Same Day Delivery at the beginning of this month, I thought it would only be possible in a small dense country like Japan. I was wrong. Amazon US announced its same day service on October 15th in the following 7 cities,
- New York City – Order as late as 10 a.m.
- Philadelphia – Order as late as 10 a.m.
- Boston – Order as late as 10:30 a.m.
- Washington D.C. – Order as late as 10:30 a.m.
- Baltimore – Order as late as 10:30 a.m.
- Las Vegas – Order as late as 11 a.m.
- Seattle – Order as late as 1 p.m.
Whereas Amazon Japan seems to provide its deadlines dynamically on each product page, the US service sets clear times city by city.
The price for this option is $5.99, which is close to Amazon Japan’s price, at about $5.50.
