SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar. 22, 2017--
(NASDAQ: AMZN) – Amazon today announced its Prime Now one-hour delivery
service is expanding to Milwaukee. This ultra-fast delivery service,
available exclusively for Prime members, provides free two-hour delivery
on tens of thousands of items from milk, eggs and ice cream to diapers,
Amazon devices and more. Customers can also shop using their voice by
simply asking Alexa to order from Prime Now.
“Not only does Prime Now offer customers convenient delivery of tens of
thousands of items, the service is really about giving time back to
Prime members to do the things they want,” said Stephenie Landry, vice
president of Prime Now worldwide. “Sometimes you don’t have time to make
it to the store or maybe you just don’t want to. Prime Now is your
one-stop shop for everything from cereal to pet food to an Amazon Echo
all delivered right to your door with free two-hour delivery.”
Tens of thousands of daily essentials are now available to order with
Alexa through Prime Now via the Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, Amazon Tap, Fire
tablet, and Fire TV. It’s as simple as saying, “Alexa, order [product]
from Prime Now” — Alexa will recommend a product within the Prime Now
catalog and once confirmed add it to the customer’s order. Alexa can
also order multiple items at once, make recommendations and will
automatically choose the next available 2-hour delivery window.
Through Prime Now, one-hour delivery is $7.99 and two-hour delivery is
free. Prime Now is available from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., seven days a week
Prime Now is available in more than 30 cities in the U.S. and continues
to expand rapidly. Prime members can download the Prime Now app,
