Seattle - Amazon is sweetening the allure of Amazon Prime membership by working with the U.S. Postal service to offer Sunday delivery.
The service will begin in the Los Angeles and New York metro markets and applies to Prime members receiving free two-day shipping. Next year, the program will expand to additional markets. Those announced thus far include Dallas, Houston, New Orleans and Phoenix.
"If you're an Amazon Prime member, you can order a backpack for your child on Friday and be packing it for them Sunday night," said Dave Clark, Amazon's vice president of worldwide operations and customer service.
"As online shopping continues to increase, the Postal Service is very happy to offer shippers like Amazon the option of having packages delivered on Sunday," said Patrick Donahoe, Postmaster General and ceo.
