Verizon Wireless customers can now receive a phone the very same day they order it, without having to leave the house. Verizon announced in a blog post Wednesday that it is rolling out a same-day delivery program that can put a new phone in buyers’ hands the just hours after placing an order online.
As long as you order the phone by 10am on Monday through Friday and the device is in stock in a local store, you can select a same-day delivery option for guaranteed delivery by 7pm that night. It costs $19.99, which is somewhat pricey, but it’s actually not that bad compared to the standard $14.99 overnight delivery fee.
Right now the program is only available in Philadelphia, but Verizon plans to bring it to Dallas, New York City, Pittsburgh and San Francisco in the near future.
Verizon’s post mentions that it joins Amazon, eBay, Google and Walmart, which are also testing same-day delivery in select cities.
