I made a purchase on Amazon.com during the so called “Black Friday” two minutes to midnight while sitting on a couch somewhere in Sacramento, California. As an Amazon Prime Member, I chose 2-day shipping; Amazon promised a Monday delivery for a portion of my order. The other portion of the order was back-ordered.
To my surprise, I received a notification that my order was delivered on Sunday.
I remembered that Amazon has just started the Sunday Delivery option to certain locations.
From Amazon Help:
Saturday and Sunday delivery is available for certain locations. Local Express can’t be used to ship to P.O. boxes, APO, FPO, or DPO addresses, but it is eligible for Guaranteed Accelerated Delivery.
USA Today reported that Amazon Sunday Delivery is made possible by a partnership by Amazon.com and the United States Postal Service. Amazon Sunday Delivery is currently available in the Los Angeles and New York metropolitan areas.
