Amazon now Delivering Alcohol in 60 minutes or less
HAPPY HOUR, ON DEMAND
Amazon announces 60-minutes-or-less booze delivery
Just 34 minutes stand between you and your next — er, first — cocktail of the day.
No need to leave your desk. It’s coming to you.
The boozy St. Nicholas behind this operation? Who else: Amazon Prime Now. The lightning fast courier service just added chilled beer, wine and spirits to the list of things they can have at your door before in 60 minutes or less.
Says Stephenie Landry, director of Amazon’s Prime Now service: “Prime Now is our fastest delivery option ever. With Prime Now, you can skip a trip to the store and get the items you need delivered right to your door in under an hour.”
Now serving select West Coast locales, Amazon’s roaming happy hour is rapidly expanding to a zip code near you. Members can download the Prime Now app (available on iOS and Android devices) to be notified when the service becomes available in their area.
Currently delivering from 8 a.m. to midnight, seven days a week. Two-hour delivery is free; one-hour delivery will run you just $7.99. A bargain for folks who take their libations seriously — like that Chinese lady who chugged a bottle of cognac rather than handing it over to airport security.
Cross your fingers and punch in your zip code.
