For consumers who need their online purchases as fast as they can click them, Amazon Prime comes pretty close — for $99 a year, you can get free same-day delivery when buying most items offered on the retail giant’s website.
The company rolled out free same-day delivery for some Prime subscribers in 2014, and has since expanded the offering to ZIP codes that are home to more than 77.6 million Americans, Bloomberg reported. Eligible customers in those locations just need to buy $35 worth of qualifying items before noon that day to ensure they’ll receive them by 9 p.m.
“No patience required,” marketing materials on the website read. “Free-same day delivery.”
But residents in Roxbury are curiously ineligible for the service, a new report in Bloomberg found Thursday, raising questions about the reasons for their exclusion.
