18/11/2015

Orders placed by noon will be delivered between 6pm and 10pm the same day, seven days a week.

LONDON - 18 November 2015 - Amazon.co.uk today has expanded its recently-launched Prime Same Day service, offering Prime members free same-day delivery on one million items. The service launched in Greater London and parts of Hertfordshire and Berkshire earlier this month is now available to residential addresses in Birmingham, Bristol, Dudley, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Milton Keynes, Northampton, Walsall and Wolverhampton. Amazon will continue to expand Prime Same Day to other areas of the UK in 2016.

Prime members who place an order for same-day delivery by noon, on any day of the week, will receive their delivery between 6pm and 10pm on that same evening. There is no minimum order value and a wide range of items are available, from TVs to toasters, DVDs to books, and coffee makers to children’s toys.

“Prime members are telling us that they love the convenience of free same-day delivery so we are quickly introducing it to many new areas of the UK. And we continue to invest in our delivery network to expand our fast delivery options to even more Prime members,” said Christopher North, Managing Director of Amazon.co.uk. “Prime Same Day adds to the range of benefits available to Prime members, like unlimited streaming of movies and music, unlimited photo storage and more.”

Prime members can now find and purchase products for same-day delivery on Amazon.co.uk, whether they’re using their PC, tablet or mobile device.  Members can simply look for the Prime Same Day logo on eligible items, add these items to their shopping basket, and then choose the FREE Same Day option at checkout.
