One-hour delivery for over 15,000 Items now available for Amazon Prime Members in Leeds

Amazon clearly doesn’t think it’s ‘grim up north’ and has made Leeds the latest city to be covered by its Prime Now delivery service.

The service, which will offer one-hour delivery options on over 15,000 products, will now be available to Amazon Prime customers in selected postcodes in Leeds including Kirkstall, Rothwell and the city centre.

Two-hour delivery windows will also now be available across other West Yorkshire areas, including other Leeds postcodes, Bradford, Wakefield and Huddersfield.

“By ‘eck”

UNP: Amazon Prime Now launched in London, UK“Prime Now is our fastest delivery option ever and from today Prime customers in Leeds can get the items they need quickly delivered right to the door in under an hour,” said Jason Weston, director of Amazon’s Prime Now service in the UK.

“Whether its essentials like fresh milk, nappies or even a last minute gift, customers love the convenience of delivery straight to their door in less than sixty minutes.”

To celebrate the launch of Prime Now in Leeds and surrounding areas, customers can get £10 off their first order of £30 or more using a special code, with a separate promotion also offering up to £20 off Amazon’s Kindle devices.

It marks latest expansion of Amazon Prime Now as the company looks to offer more flexibility to its customers throughout the UK.

Earlier this week, Amazon revealed that the service would now be available in Surrey, Hampshire and Berkshire. First launched in London in June 2015 and costing £30, Amazon Prime Now is also available to customers in Birmingham, Newcastle, Manchester and Liverpool.

Among the products available to users are frozen pizzas, computer games and health supplements – also Amazon recently revealed that the most popular Prime Now purchase of 2015 was the company’s own Fire TV Stick – closely followed by bottled water, Pepsi Max and Terry’s Chocolate Orange.

Amazon also revealed a partnership with Morrisons earlier this year which offers home delivery of food products, giving Amazon Prime Now and Amazon Pantry customers access to ‘hundreds’ of Morrisons products in the company’s fresh, frozen and ‘ambient’ ranges.

Amazon Pantry, which offers more than 4,000 everyday essential items from beer to pet food, delivered directly to the customer’s door, launched in the UK back in November following a successful launch in the US 18 months ago.
