On Thursday morning, Amazon.com took another step in its effort to
bring instant gratification to its customers, introducing a new
“Local Express Delivery Option.” If an eligible item is
ordered between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. (depending on the city) Amazon
will have it delivered on the same day. To start out, the e-
commerce giant is rolling out the service in seven cities — New
York, Philadelphia, Boston, Washington, Baltimore, Las Vegas and
Seattle. (With Chicago, Indianapolis and Phoenix to come soon).
Costs just $6 if you’re a Prime member.
