I wrote about Amazon Prime Now about a month ago as it is a great same day delivery service for those in Manhattan. For those that already have an Amazon Prime membership you get complimentary access to the “Now” service. Delivery within 2 hours is free, but if you need it it within the hour you’ll pay $7.99. Unfortunately though, you only have access to items that are sold and shipped by Amazon and not third-part resellers. Overall though, a great service for those that need an item same day.
I received an email this morning with a $10 off code for your first order. The best is that there is no minimum requirement (although you must spend at least $15 to utilize the Amazon Prime Now service). So you can purchase a $15 item, take $10 off, and pay whatever you desire as a tip. The coupon code is NEWTONOW which you enter at the bottom of the page on the Amazon Prime Now app. This coupon code is valid through March 31, 2015.
As I’ve mentioned before, you can take advantage of this service even if you are not the primary Amazon Prime member. For example, I piggy-back off of my brother-in-laws Amazon Prime’s membership. Amazon Prime allows you to share their account with up to four additional family members living in the same household. BTW – I do not live with my brother-in-law! So while I am not the primary member, I still have my own username and password, but do not need to pay the annual fee. Typically secondary members do not get some of the same benefits, such as Amazon Prime Instant Video. So I am glad to see that all members, primarily and non-primary members of Amazon Prime have access to Amazon Prime Now.
Remember, this service is only currently in Manhattan but will be available in other cities throughout the year.
