Who doesn't love Amazon Prime?
Kindle library, early access to deals, video, music, photos, cloud storage, referral discounts and, of course, free two-day shipping with everything you buy. For me, the $99 annual Amazon Prime fee is worth it just to have access to "Mozart in the Jungle."
But now, if you're a Prime member in the Milwaukee metro, you can place an order in the morning and receive all same-day eligible orders over $35 before bedtime that very same day, seven days a week. Same-day delivery is here. I'm sure, by now, you've seen the trucks too.
Says Amazon, "with these newly added areas, Prime free same-day delivery now serves 27 metro areas in the U.S., accounting for more than 1,000 cities and towns."
"Prime was developed to make shopping on Amazon fast and convenient, and millions of members have used Prime free same-day delivery to make their lives even easier," said Greg Greeley, Amazon's vice president of Prime. "We keep making Prime better, and as our operational capabilities grow, we will continue to invent and expand delivery options that customers love."
I order a ton of stuff via Amazon. It's convenient and I can support an employer who's providing a ton of jobs. Plus, it's fun. I really don't like shopping, but I love to buy! So, load up, and get it same day, baby.
See you on the Amazon "aisles."
