Amazon Prime members in Boston can now get theirgoods even quicker thanks tothe company's Prime Now service.
The Seattle-based e-commerce giant announced on Wednesday the expansion of Prime Now, which offers one- and two-hour delivery options, to its Boston customers.
Those who shell out for a Prime subscription ($99 per year or $10.99 per month) can buy groceries, household items, electronics and more via www.primenow.com or the Prime Now app.
Prime itself offers free two-day shipping, but with Prime Now, two-hour delivery for available items is free, or you can get your order within an hour for $7.99.
Prime Now is available from 8 a.m. to midnight seven days a week. Amazon says its available to "the entire city of Boston" but doesn't specify surrounding areas (zip codes in Harvard Square, Cambridge and Coolidge Corner, Brooklineworked, for example, but a zip code in Medford did not). Checkfor your specificzip code at www.primenow.com.
Amazon's same-day delivery service has already been available in Greater Boston. Though that service initially excluded Roxbury, Bloomberg reported, the company extended service to that Boston neighborhood, which is now included in Prime Now as well.
