Amazon Day Gives Shoppers Flexible Shipping Options
You know the struggle. You shop on Amazon constantly, which results in multiple purchases throughout the week, and, ultimately, multiple shipments landing on your doorstep throughout the week as well. And sometimes those orders that have multiple items end up arriving in multiple shipments for whatever reason. The net result is an Amazon delivery practically every day during the week and more oversized cardboard boxes than you know what to do with.
Amazon knows that struggle as well, and on Thursday they announced a new service for Prime members that aims to curtail all of those shipments and packaging waste.
Amazon Day, which is available now for all Prime members, allows shoppers to choose a day of the week that will become their “delivery day” for when orders will arrive. The idea, here, is that a Prime member’s orders will be grouped and shipped in fewer boxes on a single day. Of course, if you need something sooner, you can opt to have an item excluded from your Amazon Day shipment without interrupting the rest of that order.
