Amazon Launches One-Hour Booze Delivery
If you've ever been at a BBQ that's run out of beer, you know how revolutionary this is: Amazon is launching a booze delivery service.
The lucky folks of Seattle are the first to get Prime Now, a mobile app available to Amazon Prime members, with one-hour delivery on thousands of items like household products, food, electronic devices-- and beer, wine, and liquor.
In an press release Tuesday, Stephenie Landry, director of Amazon Prime Now, said,
“Prime Now is our fastest delivery option ever. With Prime Now, you can skip a trip to the store and get the items you need delivered right to your door in under an hour. Customers love the convenience of one-hour delivery and we’re excited to bring Prime Now to our hometown customers in Seattle and surrounding areas.”
In Seattle and nearby areas, Prime Now delivers 8a.m. to midnight. Two hour delivery is free and one hour delivery is $7.99.
The service isn't available in Michigan yet, but Amazon says it will be expanding to additional zip codes. Prime members can download the Prime Now app and will be notified when the service is available in their area.
