Amazon today announced the expansion of its Prime same-day delivery to more than a dozen new metro areas, including Fresno. 

The free delivery option allows Amazon Prime members to receive same-day delivery on orders over $35, seven days a week. The annual membership costs $99 a year and also offers customers unlimited free two-day shipping. 

“Prime was developed to make shopping on Amazon fast and convenient, and millions of members have used Prime FREE Same-Day Delivery to make their lives even easier,” said Greg Greeley, Vice President of Prime. “We keep making Prime better, and as our operational capabilities grow, we will continue to invent and expand delivery options that customers love.”

Prime members shopping on can choose from more than a million eligible items for the new delivery option. Orders placed in the morning arrive by 9 p.m. the same day, and orders placed in the afternoon or evening arrive the next day.

The same-day delivery service is now available in 27 metro areas, including Atlanta, Baltimore, Boston, Charlotte, Chicago, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, New York City, Orlando, Phoenix, San Francisco, Sacramento and San Diego.
