Amazon has announced its cut off dates for when items will arrive in time for Christmas. And to be honest, you don't have long to get your shopping done. It is already December 16, nine days away from Christmas.
The biggest cut off date is going to be December 23, that's a week from today. That's the last day that you can order more than 10 million items that are eligible for One-Day Delivery. This is free for Prime members, and there's no minimum purchase.
On December 24, you can still order "millions" of items that are eligible for Same-Day Delivery. This is available for Prime members in eligible areas, on orders over $35. This date is also your last chance to order free two-hour grocery delivery. This is also only for Prime Members and in select cities. Whole Foods Market, Amazon Fresh, Amazon Books, Amazon 4-star and Amazon Pop Up stores are still open on Christmas Eve. Hours will vary on location.
Finally, you can still pick up some last-minute gifts on Amazon on December 25. But they will be limited to digital goods. Like gift cards, the Gift of Prime, and even things like PlayStation Plus, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate or other video games that only require a download.
Time is running out!
There's not a lot of time left to get your Christmas gifts bought and shipped. This year, it was a good idea to start your shopping early, since shippers are going to be swamped due to the increase in online shopping this holiday season. Not to mention having to ship out millions of doses of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine too.
But essentially, you have a week left, in order to get your items in time for Christmas day. We have plenty of Gift Guides available to help you find the perfect gift, if you need some help. And if you are looking for some great sales, we are also posting new deals every single day.
