With an Amazon Prime membership, you have access to unlimited fast, free delivery on millions of eligible items. But did you know you can also select your preferred day of the week for your deliveries?

Amazon Day delivery, available exclusively to Prime members at no additional cost, gives you control over your delivery schedule, so you can receive your orders on the day that works best for you.

It’s also a great way to combine multiple orders into one delivery, potentially reducing the amount of packaging you receive. In fact, Amazon Day deliveries use 30% fewer boxes on average, and in 2023, saved 200 million boxes.

Here’s everything you need to know about setting up your Amazon Day:

When to use Amazon Day  

Amazon Day delivery is useful when you want to receive your delivery on a particular day. Here are a few possible scenarios:

● When you know you’ll be at home to receive the package.

● When you want to place an order immediately but don’t need it until later.

● When you have multiple items in your order with different delivery dates and want to consolidate them into one delivery.

● When you are travelling and want to receive your package at your destination once you arrive.

Whether you’re thinking of joining Prime, or you’ve been with us for a while, it’s important to know how to maximise your membership.
