The online retail giant announced that, starting Tuesday, all Calgary and Edmonton Amazon Prime members will be eligible for free one-day delivery, including on weekends.

That means that customers will have over 500,000 items ready to be delivered within a day from categories including, home essentials, curated fashion, new release movies and music, and the latest electronics.

Here are some of the stipulations:

  • You need to order by 4 pm in order to receive your package by 9 pm the next day.
  • Shipping is free, as long as you spend at least $25.

All items that are available for one-day delivery will be under a special icon or will be on the filter menu.

One-day delivery will also be available to regular Amazon customers, but at a cost: $11.99 an order, plus an additional $1.99 per pound per item.

And in case you don’t know anything about being a Prime member, don’t forget, they pay an annual fee of $79 for the free same-day delivery privileges.

So nothing is ever truly free.

When are they going to start drone deliveries anyway?
