This is for the person in your family that likes to leave things for the last minute…
Not all hope is lost if you can’t make it to your local mall or department store. If you’ve waited until Christmas Eve to get some last-minute gifts but are also the type that doesn’t want to leave your home, then this service is for you. But hurry, because there is a deadline.
If you’re looking to avoid the crowds, once again Amazon has got you covered. Prime members can select from over 1 million products that are eligible for same-day delivery. But you’ll have to order by 9:30 a.m., Christmas Eve.
Apple is also doing same-day delivery. Customers can order an Apple Watch, iPhone or iPad and have it delivered straight to their home by the end of Christmas Eve. The deadline for their free two-hour delivery is 4 p.m. For deliveries that do not include the above-mentioned Apple products, courier options are still available, but Apple is charging the standard $9 fee. AirPods are also not available for free courier delivery if ordered as a standalone.
Christmas shopping is a billion-dollar industry in America, and just this weekend, holiday shoppers spent $34 billion nationwide.
