Amazon one-hour delivery lives in Manhattan!
I learned that my neighborhood qualified for Amazon Prime Now a few months ago, and downloaded the app on my phone.
But today I took it out for a test drive.
I placed my order at 3:35pm, with guaranteed delivery by 4:35pm. At 4:11pm, the items arrived at my door.
It is as fast as my local pizzeria!
There is a minimum order of $15, and a $7.99 delivery charge for Amazon Prime customers…but for things you need right this minute —
It’s a deal!

I’m taking a class at NYU this fall and ordered my textbooks from Amazon. When a delivery arrived this morning, I broke open the box, expecting to see books.
On top of the air bladders was a thank you note for my order with two small sample packs of Mike and Ike.
I thought this was a new Amazon policy, which I — a sugarholic — was immediately behind.
But once I dug a little deeper, I realized the shipment was actually an early birthday gift from Peeps & Company, which makes Mike and Ike (and Peeps, as you might imagine).
I was lucky enough to receive both!
But I still think it would be a great idea for Internet merchants like Amazon to include a candy surprise in their shipments. It was only a tiny package — maybe 8 pieces — but it still put a smile on my face.
It’s the little things…

They say knowledge is power.
Sometimes it can be almost painful!
Case in point: I received the Downton Abbey Season 3 DVD on Tuesday — I pre-ordered it on Amazon.
By the end of the day, I had watched all of the four remaining episodes.
I know all the secrets of Season 3…and I can’t talk to anyone about them!
But I will not spoil the season for anyone, I swear. I just plan to re-watch the entire season again this week.
And probably a couple more times after that.
Fasten your seat belts, everyone — you are in for an amazing ride!!
