Verizon Expands Same-day Delivery Service to New York City, Dallas, Pittsburgh and San Francisco

verizon logo note 3

In mid-October, Verizon launched a same-day delivery service for new and existing customers ordering phones through its website. The pilot program was first launched in Philadelphia, but today, Big Red announced it is expanding the service to New York City, Pittsburgh, Dallas, and San Francisco. 

New and existing customers may choose Same-Day Delivery when ordering online by 10:00 a.m. Monday through Friday with delivery guaranteed by 7:00 p.m. The cost is $19.99 – compared with the priority overnight delivery fee of $14.99.

Sunday through Thursday, customers placing their orders after the normal shipping cutoff times (between 4 p.m. and 12 a.m.) will still have the ability to select and receive their orders the next day.

So, here is just another way companies are trying to make life easier. Is it worth the extra $5 for same day? In most cases, we would say “heck yes.”

    That’s great. Too bad I’m switching to TMO when my contract ends in February.

  • Jason Brown

    it’s been a while since i’ve updated. does vzw still offer the free 2 day shipping?

  • Blue Sun

    No Nexus 5? Not interested. Not gonna give you my money Verizon.

  • Christopher Kroupa

    Just in time for the Nexus 5 :)… :/… :'(

    Who delivers them? Sales reps?

    An extra $5 to avoid the hell that is a vzw store, yep worth it.

    • It’s actually $20 over getting it in-store, only $5 more than traditional overnight shipping.

  • Mathew Colburn

    I just don’t understand why you’d pay this when you can walk into a store and save $20.

    • NexusMan

      Makes sense if your local stores are sold out or if you are taking advantage of an online only discount.

      Buying a Verizon phone from Amazon beats both the Verizon store and the Verizon online store. Right now , you can get the LG G2 at amazon for $99 and the shipping is cheaper.

    So now devices come 29 days late instead of 30!

    That’s pretty interesting. I’m not sure I’m ever that needy to get a device that quick, but it’s awesome to know that option is slowly happening.
