Starting today, Amazon.com introduces a new “Get It Today” search feature in Phoenix with more than a million eligible items now available for Same-Day Delivery. Customers can order as late as noon and get popular movies, video games and hot electronics, last-minute travel needs and family necessities delivered the same day. Amazon is also introducing a per-order shipping price for same-day deliveries, exclusively for Prime members, allowing them to pay one low, single price for all the Same-Day Delivery items they can order. These new delivery innovations are also available starting today in Seattle and San Francisco, and will extend to all Amazon’s same-day cities in the US this year.

“Customers have told us they’d love to be able to easily shop from the vast selection of items that we offer for Same-Day Delivery,” said Greg Greeley, Vice President, Amazon Prime, “With expanded same-day selection and new convenient pricing, Prime members can now take advantage of the “Get It Today” filter to fill up their shopping cart and have it delivered to their door in hours.”
Items eligible for Same-Day Delivery are clearly marked on the product detail page. 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 items that can be delivered the next day. To add even greater shopping convenience, customers can browse popular Same-Day Delivery items by going to www.amazon.com/sameday.
