Amazon’s Express delivery service has been gaining traction among urban shoppers who rely on online retailers to deliver their food and other essentials.
The grocery delivery service now has more than 1,000 cities across the U.S. and is now offering a free option for people who don’t have a full-time job or school.
The service is available to Prime members who live in at least one of the more than 600 U.K. cities and territories that offer free delivery.
A few days after Prime launched, Amazon announced that it would launch a free Amazon Express delivery option for consumers in New York City.
That service will start with Amazon Fresh deliveries, which include some items but do not include delivery to major cities.
The company has also launched a free service for grocery delivery users in Atlanta and the District of Columbia.
The company says that customers will be able to pick up a bag of groceries for free at its Atlanta store, while the service will continue to offer delivery to more than 300 U.R.C.C.-owned grocery stores in the Atlanta metro area.
The Prime service offers a free, one-day trial for customers in New Orleans and Houston.
Customers will be limited to using the service in one area for the first 30 days and will be eligible for up to $150 in free groceries, the company said.
The free option also includes an introductory delivery charge for Amazon Prime members in Washington, D.C., where the company announced last week that it will expand its delivery network to include FedEx Ground and UPS Ground deliveries.
