The new two-hour delivery option available from Amazon Prime Now is groundbreakingly fast. Find out how Amazon brings goods from the warehouse to your doorstep in 120 minutes or less.
Viewers of February’s Super Bowl LI were treated to a vision of the future, one in which flying drones could be dispatched to deliver something as small as a bag of Doritos to your doorstep. And while it’s certainly fun to imagine what the future might look like, there’s plenty about the services Amazon is offering right now to get excited about.
The Prime Now service was launched at the end of 2014 with an app, but only in a handful of cities. Since then it has grown considerably — with the launch of the Prime Now webpage, which makes the service accessible to both mobile and desktop customers, it now offers tens of thousands of items for delivery across 25 categories, including electronics, groceries, gifts, household items, and even alcohol in 28 US cities. In cities like New York, Chicago, and LA, Prime Now is also being used to make deliveries from local restaurants and stores.
