Yesterday, Sunday morning, I was startled by the bell. Who would be buzzing us as 9:30 in the morning? I headed down the stairs and was greeted by the mailwoman holding a package for me.
A package, on a Sunday?
It was the Pelican 1550 case I had ordered on Friday. The delivery estimate was for Tuesday 11/12, which made sense to me, but I am glad to have it two full days earlier.
A quick search this morning turned up confirmation that Amazon and the USPS have teamed up to offer Sunday delivery to NY and LA metropolitan areas at no extra charge. Sweet.
Even though Amazon now charges sales tax in NY and NJ, this is one more reason to keep shopping there. A minor reason, but I like the idea of not having to wait until Tuesday for certain items ordered on a Friday.
Update: I received an email today (11/13) that suggests Sunday delivery is only for Prime members.
Your Amazon Prime membership just got even better. We’ve added Sunday Delivery to the unlimited free two-day shipping benefit you’ve been receiving. Now every day is an Amazon Prime delivery day.
Sunday delivery is available on millions of Prime eligible items when shipping to the Los Angeles and New York metropolitan areas. Now when you order those products on Friday, they will be delivered on Sunday. Just look for a Sunday delivery date with Free Two-Day Shipping when you place your order.
Thanks for being a Prime member and we hope you continue to enjoy all the benefits Prime has to offer.
