Remember Kozmo.com? Talk about an idea ahead of its time. The service launched in the late 1990s and used huge warehouses to store tons of goods that it could then deliver to customers within a few hours of ordering. It was a great idea, but it was the wrong approach. Partnering with local establishments is definitely the way to go to create a service like this, and that's exactly what Amazon has done with Prime Now.
This awesome service lets users in 32 different cities across the country order anything from household essentials and food you might find in a super market to clothing, electronics, pet supplies, toys, and even alcohol. Your order will then be delivered within 2 hours for free, or within 1 hour for a flat $7.99 fee. There are more than 25,000 items available through Amazon Prime Now, and you can even order takeout from local restaurants for delivery within an hour.
Prime Day might be over, but Amazon still has an awesome deal for anyone who wants to try Prime Now. Simply use the code 10PRIMENOW at checkout between now and July 31 and you'll save $10 on your first Prime Now order. In other words, Amazon is going to give you $10 for free. We suggest taking it.
