Best Buy is growing its same-day delivery program.
Not only is the retailer adding cities where consumers can order products from BestBuy.com and receive them just a few hours later, it’s also expanding the number of products available for same-day fulfillment. Best Buy is also trimming the price to $5.99 for the service, down from $14.99.
Same-day delivery is expanding from 13 metro areas to 27. Beginning tomorrow, it will become newly available in San Antonio and Austin, Texas; Charlotte, N.C.; Cincinnati and Columbus; Denver; Kansas City, Kan.; Minneapolis/St. Paul; Orlando and Tampa, Fla.; Phoenix; Pittsburgh; and San Diego and Sacramento, Calif.
More cities will be added this fall, and Best Buy said nearly 40 cities will be eligible by the holiday season.
Same-day is now available seven days a week (up from the original six), and orders placed by 3 p.m. can be received by 9 p.m. that evening (Sunday delivery deadlines are 4 p.m.).
Orders are fulfilled by Deliv and another unnamed company with a similar crowdsourced-labor model.
