Jacksonville gets same-day shipping from Amazon

Pierce Turner, Features Editor

Jacksonville has finally received support for same-day shipping from Amazon in select area codes.

The online store is offering the speedy service for Prime members on select items in orders costing over $35. Some of the featured items on the site include the book How to Win Friends and Influence People, in case you desperately need that help in 24 hours. You can also order a 12-pack of Chef Boyardees, making Amazon, essentially, Grubhub.

We checked, and UNF is in one of the qualifying area codes for same-day shipping. If you don’t live on campus and want to check if your area code works, click here.

According to The Florida Times Union, Amazon is building two fulfillment centers in the city, which will improve the delivery times even further once completed.
