Amazon is proud to offer its Prime members fast delivery options, including Same-Day and One-Day Delivery.
We also offer the Amazon Day delivery option, which gives Prime members the ability to choose a designated day of the week that makes sense for them to receive their orders—and it’s completely free.
Read on to learn when and why you may want to use Amazon Day.
How does Amazon Day work?
Amazon Day is a free delivery option for Prime members that shows up at the checkout page for Prime-eligible items.
Select “Amazon Day,” then choose any day of the week for your orders to arrive. You can also save the selected day for future orders and make Amazon Day your default delivery option. You can always go back and change your default settings at any time.
When should you use Amazon Day?
You should use Amazon Day when you want your package on a specific day. Here are some possible scenarios:
- When you’re traveling and want to receive your package at your destination once you arrive.
- When you know you’ll be at home to receive the package.
- When you want to place an order immediately but don’t need it until later.
- When you have multiple items in your order with different delivery dates and you want to consolidate them into one delivery.
Why should you use Amazon Day?
On top of making deliveries work for your personal schedule, choosing Amazon Day is a great way to combine multiple orders into one delivery, potentially reducing the amount of packaging you receive.
Amazon Day deliveries use 30% fewer boxes on average, and in 2022, saved 180 million boxes.
How do I earn rewards using Amazon Day?
Your Amazon Day order may be eligible for a promotional reward. It automatically applies to your Amazon account once your package ships, and it usually applies to digital products such as eBooks, digital video downloads, and digital music. You can view your Amazon Day reward balance here.
