Are you a last-minute shopper? Is so, you’re not alone. I can guarantee that scores of procrastinating New Yorkers will buy gifts up until December 24th. (I’m included in that bunch.) If you tend to put Christmas shopping off until the week of the holiday – when stores can be unbearably crowded and picked over – you understand how that stress can take all the fun out of the most wonderful time of the year. Enter Amazon Prime Now. Shop at the eleventh hour, and get delivery fast.
Forget about the “order by such and such date to get delivery before December 25th.” With Prime Now, there’s no need to worry about shipping deadlines to get Christmas gifts on time. You can get ultra-quick same-day delivery with a Prime membership. Place your order and get delivery in two hours for FREE, or in one hour for just $7.99. And, at this busy time of year leading up to Christmas, you can get delivery in an hour or two up until midnight on Christmas Eve. (For ultimate procrastinators.) Meanwhile, you’ll be able to relax and enjoy time with family and friends, and let Amazon Prime Now fight the crowds and traffic.
Besides shopping for gifts, you can order food from popular restaurants through Amazon Prime Now. In New York, get your favorites from Eataly and Le Pain Quotidien (the best chocolate croissants). And Prime Now delivers to Manhattan and Brooklyn. Just be sure to check your zip code before ordering, and tip your courier. 🙂
Amazon Prime Now launched in Manhattan three holidays ago but has since expanded to more than 30 different cities across the US. Order everything from tech and electronics to toys to gift wrap to groceries, and in Manhattan, shop beer, wine, and spirits too.
The minimum for Prime Now orders varies by city, and in Manhattan it’s $20. To find out the delivery minimum in your city and which items are included in Amazon Prime Now, use the mobile app or visit www.primenow.com. An Amazon Prime subscription costs $99 per year.
