Amazon is taking last-minute shopping a whole new level. The retail giant has expanded free one-day shipping and free same-day delivery for Prime members to more than 10,000 cities this holiday season, allowing more last-minute shoppers to place their orders through December 24th.


Anyone who has Prime Now can order gifts as late as 9:15 p.m. on Christmas Eve, and they'll arrive that night. That's a pretty good deal for anyone who tends to save their Christmas shopping until literally the last minute.
