See If Amazon’s One-Hour Shipping Expanded to Your City
Amazon Primers, users of Prime Pantry and fast-shipping lovers everywhere, boy do we have some good news for you. If you thought getting two-day shipping was awesome, you’re going to love Amazon’s one-hour shipping. Since December, New York City has been lucky enough to be the first city to experience this super fast shipping service, but Amazon is spreading the love to two new cities — Baltimore and Miami. Lucky ducks…
Currently, Amazon’s Prime Now app (free on iOS and Android) gives you free two-hour deliveries in loads of locations. But if two hours is just one too many hours for you and you live in select zip codes, the app has the option for an hour-long wait if you’re willing to pay $8 extra. That doesn’t sound too bad when you desperately need those cute spring stripes on your body asap… or more likely forgot some supplies for your next DIY project, or ripped your favorite skirt and have a presentation in three hours. Besides Baltimore and Miami, the one-hour delivery service has expanded to include more areas of NYC. We’re talking all of Manhattan and parts of Brooklyn.
Amazon has some hungry competition nipping at its heels: Google and eBay are working on their own same-day shipping options. We’ll continue to keep our fingers crossed that the service makes its way westward in the near future. Until then, we’ll just keep reminding ourselves how happy we are that Amazon Prime Now ships seven days a week, from 8am to 10pm. Because really, two-hour shipping is pretty rad too.
What city do you need Amazon’s one-hour shipping to come to? What would you want delivered to you in under an hour?
Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
