Which stores are participating? We have all the details for you on this new Amazon same-day delivery launch.
What is Amazon same-day store delivery?
Amazon is using their big fleet of delivery vehicles to not just deliver Amazon packages, but items from local retailers. With Amazon same-day delivery, customers are able to get items delivered from these nearby stores within a few hours after ordering.
Now, you can already get Amazon same day delivery via Amazon Fresh & Whole Foods, but your options are now a whole lot bigger. Amazon has partnered with three stores in nine metropolitan areas across the U.S. to begin what’s sure to be the beginning of a massive new Amazon Prime benefit.
How do you place an order for another retailer on Amazon?
Here’s what you do to place a same-day order from a participating non-Amazon retailer:
- Go to the “Delivery from Nearby Stores” page on Amazon.com or via the Amazon app
- Choose the store you want a same-day delivery order from
- Add to cart (delivery ETA will show up in your cart)
- Place order
- A store employee will pack your stuff in the store brand’s bag
- An Amazon driver will pick up your order and bring it to you
Some stores also have a same-day pickup option if you want to get your online order yourself.
Do you have to be a Prime member to use Amazon store delivery?
No, you don’t need to be a Prime member to get same-day delivery from participating stores, but if you aren’t, you’ll pay $9.99 per order.
And it would only take 14 same-day delivery orders for the fees to exceed the $139 Amazon Prime annual membership price.

How much is Amazon’s same-day store delivery?
If you’re a Prime member, you’ll pay nothing for same-day delivery as long as your order is over $25. If an order is under $25, you pay a flat $2.99 delivery fee.
If you aren’t a Prime member, like we said, each order will run you $9.99, no matter how much you buy.
A Prime membership is $14.99 per month, or $139 annually. Check out our guide if you’re having trouble figuring out if a membership is worth it.

Here are the stores Amazon has partnered with to launch their same-day delivery service:
- GNC: vitamins and supplements

- SuperDry: outerwear and apparel
In the next few months, Amazon is planning to add kitchen goods store Sur La Table and 100% Pure to the list of participating stores.
What time do you need to order by to get Amazon same day delivery?
Generally speaking, if you order by 5 p.m., you’ll be able to get your delivery before 10 p.m. But same-day delivery deadlines vary depending on where you live, the particular store’s hours, and your time zone.
If you order by midnight, you’ll get it the next day. And depending on the retailer, you’ll be able to get same-day delivery on the weekends, too.
Which cities is Amazon same-day store delivery available in?
These metro areas are offering Amazon delivery from retailers:
- Las Vegas
- Washington, D.C.
Don’t worry if you don’t see your city. Amazon has a history of starting small with initiatives like this and branching out. More are likely coming soon; we’ll keep you updated.
Not all participating stores are available in each city, so check the Amazon website to see what stores are available in yours.
How do you return one of these other retailers’ orders?
You make your return as you usually would through Amazon, UPS, or your local Kohl’s. You go to the returns section of the site, begin the return, and ultimately return it to Amazon, or bring it to Whole Foods, UPS, or the Amazon Returns section of Kohl’s.
Amazon says that in the future, they’ll make it to where you can return your items directly to the retailers if you choose.
