Best Buy extends same-day delivery coverage

US retail giant Best Buy has announced that it is to extend its same-day delivery coverage, as well as offering free shipping over the coming peak season.

In a statement, Best Buy said: “After expanding same-day delivery to more than 25 metro areas this fall, we’ve now expanded the service to more than 40 U.S. metro areas.”

The service is powered by Best Buy’s third-party provider GEODIS.

Where the service is available customers of Best Buy can place orders as late as 1500 local time for delivery by 2100 the same day for a cost of $5.99. The same-day delivery service is going to be available seven days a week, though the deadline for orders will be 1400 on a Sunday for delivery by 2000.

The new metro areas now eligible for same-day delivery are: Birmingham, Alabama; Cleveland; Detroit; Indianapolis; Little Rock, Arkansas; Milwaukee; New Orleans, Oklahoma City; Portland, Oregon; Raleigh, North Carolina; Salt Lake City and St. Louis.

Meanwhile, Best Buy also announced – a very staccato style – that it has launched its seasonal free shipping offer: “All. Season. Long. From now until Christmas Day, orders on will ship at no cost to you.

“There’s no minimum purchase amount. No membership fee. Just free and easy to use.”
