Amazon order cutoff of noon for NYC; 1PM for Baltimore, DC
Amazon.com has expanded Same-Day Delivery with new "Get It Today" capabilities for customers in Baltimore, Dallas, Indianapolis, New York City, Philadelphia and Washington DC metro areas, with more than a million eligible items now available for same-day delivery. Customers who search or browse the Amazon product selection will find the "Get It Today" filter on the left-hand navigation panel, just below the "Amazon Prime" filter. They can select "Get It Today" and see only those items eligible for Same-Day Delivery. A similar "Get It by Tomorrow" filter will allow customers to discover millions of additional items that can be delivered the next day.
Items generally available for same-day delivery are new releases, select cabling purchases, travel essentials, family supplies, and home improvement tools. Orders must be placed by noon in New York City, Philadelphia, Indianapolis, and Dallas, plus the launch markets of Los Angeles, Phoenix, San Francisco and Seattle. Orders can be made as late as 1PM in Baltimore and some of the Washington DC metro area.
Prime members pay $6 for all the same-day delivery items they can order. Pricing for non-Prime customers remains unchanged, with a $10 fee for the first item and $1 for each additional item.
