Verizon Wireless, the nation’s top wireless carrier by subscribers and revenue, announced Wednesday its same-day delivery service is now available in an additional ten cities in the United States. The expansion comes on top of the five launch markets.
In July 2013, Verizon became the first wireless carrier to offer this service with a pilot program in Philadelphia, which was then expanded in October to include New York City, Dallas, Pittsburgh and San Francisco. The Big Red carrier charges $19.99 to get your mobile device delivered the same day, with delivery guaranteed by 7pm local time…
Online transactions must be completed prior to 10am local time to qualify for same-day delivery by 7pm local time. Customers ordering only accessories and those placing orders for prepaid devices will not be eligible for this delivery option.
The company explains:
Additional information may be required to complete your order upon credit and payment verification. You will be contacted via email, text, or phone if your order is held for any reason. It is important that you respond immediately to allow us time to finalize and ship your order prior to our courier cutoff times.
Sunday through Thursday, folks placing their orders after the normal shipping cutoff times (between 4pm and 12am local time) will still have the ability to select and receive their orders the next business day.
Twenty bucks seems a tad pricey given that you can pick up your devices in-store at most Verizon locations same day. Also, keep in mind that the priority overnight delivery fee is $14.99.
