Don’t be surprised to get that Amazon package on Sunday

Live in Los Angeles, New York or London? Then don't be surprised to see your postal carrier showing up on Sunday with a package from Amazon. As the TechCrunch Web site recently documented, the online business giant has started Sunday delivery for its Prime customers living in these three major cities.

Holiday crunch

Amazon is now one of the go-to shopping sites for consumers during the holiday season. So it’s little surprise that Amazon is ready to test Sunday deliveries. The company is working with the United States Postal Service to make it happen.

Better be Prime

Even if you live in one of the key three cities, though, you might not be eligible for Amazon Sunday delivery. That’s due to the fact only Amazon Prime members can obtain these special deliveries. Amazon Prime is a preferred-customer service, and it isn’t free. To become a Prime member, you will need to pay $79 a year.

More roll-outs?

There’s even better news for holiday shoppers. Amazon’s Sunday program this season is just a pilot. The company has plans -- depending upon how things go this year -- to widen the Sunday-delivery service to more cities in the future. TechCrunch reports that cities such as Dallas, Houston and Phoenix might be slated for Sunday delivery as early as 2014.
