Are you the type of person who clicks “order” and then cannot wait for your package to arrive? Perhaps you find yourself frequently needing to order birthday or holiday gifts, pantry essentials, or household items you’re running low on last minute. If you’re nodding along, you’ll definitely enjoy this noteworthy perk to get your money’s worth.

Quarterback Michael Penix Jr. helped Amazon make special Same-Day Deliveries in celebration of the exciting milestone.

One of Prime’s most notable benefits is the fast, free delivery. There are more than 300 million items eligible for free Prime shipping and tens of millions of the most popular items are available with Same-Day or One-Day Delivery. Amazon now offers Same-Day Delivery in more than 110 U.S. metro areas from San Francisco, Boston, and Atlanta to Cedar Rapids, Daytona Beach, and Baton Rouge. If you’re looking to schedule your Amazon deliveries on a specific day, you can use the free Prime member perk, 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.

Do you like saving money?
