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.
Here are the cutoff dates for Amazon's 2018 holiday shipping:
December 18th (extended): Last day for free shipping with no minimum purchase amount, free for all customers
December 18th: Last day for standard shipping, free for Prime members
December 22nd: Last day for two-day shipping, free for Prime members
December 23rd: Last day for one-day shipping, free for Prime members in eligible areas
December 24th: Last day for same-day delivery, free for Prime members in eligible areas (order by 9:30 a.m. local time or earlier)
December 24th: Prime Now offers free two-hour delivery windows, reserved exclusively for Prime members in eligible areas (order by 9:15 p.m. local time or earlier)
December 24th: Whole Foods Market stores, Amazon Books, Amazon 4-star, Amazon Pop-up device kiosks open Christmas Eve (store hours vary by location)
Happy shopping, procrastinators!
