Fast, Free & Convenient Delivery Options
At Amazon, incredible employees come together to deliver magical experiences for customers—every day and throughout the festive season—and that includes offering fast, free and convenient delivery options for customers. Amazon announced just last month that it is creating 10,000 new permanent jobs in its fulfillment and logistics network in the UK in 2020. With more than 150 new process improvements and safety measures implemented over the last several months, these permanent positions will work alongside the hundreds of thousands of employees already across Amazon’s network to ensure fast, and efficient delivery for customers throughout the season, and beyond. In addition to free delivery on millions of items for all Amazon customers, Amazon offers a number of ways for customers to shop for and receive Christmas gifts.

Fast One-Day & Same-Day Delivery: Prime members in the UK receive unlimited One-Day Delivery on millions of items across all categories and unlimited Same-Day Delivery on more than a million items in Greater London, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Birmingham, Bristol, Manchester, Leeds, Liverpool and more. These delivery options are not only convenient for customers but they’re better for the planet because One-Day and Same-Day deliveries ship from local fulfilment centres so they travel shorter distances and generate less carbon emissions. As part of the company’s commitment to The Climate Pledge, which calls on new signatories to be net zero carbon across their businesses by 2040 – a decade ahead of the Paris Agreement goal of 2050 – by the end of the year more than 500 electric vehicles from Mercedes-Benz Vans will be added to Amazon’s delivery fleet in the UK, helping to save thousands of metric tons of carbon. This is just another way that Amazon is leveraging its scale for good to make investments that support communities.

Fast & Free Grocery Delivery: Millions of customers in more than 30 towns and cities across the UK have access to fast and free delivery on grocery products from Amazon.co.uk, Prime Now and Amazon Fresh. Plus, Prime members can also shop Morrisons on Amazon making Morrisons even more accessible to customers that use Amazon.co.uk and the Amazon app. The service is now available to millions of Prime members across the UK, including Glasgow, Swansea, Birmingham and Liverpool. Amazon Fresh also offers Prime members Amazon’s fastest grocery delivery offer in the UK, usually as fast as same-day for orders placed before 9pm in most areas. Customers have access to thousands of grocery items from major brands including Booths, Whole Foods Market, Pepsi, Danone, Arla, Warburtons and Britvic as well as premium products from artisan and local producers, including GAIL’s Artisan Bakery, C.Lidgate and Paxton & Whitfield.

Delivery Where it’s Needed Most: Whether travelling to see family, staying home and needing a secure delivery location, or sending a gift to a loved one or friend, there are thousands of alternative package pickup options customers can choose from via Amazon Hub. These locations are conveniently positioned near or in offices, supermarkets, train stations, convenience and high street stores, shopping centres, service stations, gyms and hospitals, with thousands of locations across the UK. Tens of millions of products can be easily and conveniently delivered to an Amazon Hub pickup point at Morrisons, Shell, Coop, Next, and more. To find an Amazon Hub location, visit amazon.co.uk/amazonhub.

Extended Returns Window: Most items shipped between 1st October and 31st December, 2020 can be returned until 31st January, 2021.
