“So far, the most common items delivered on Sunday include baby supplies such as newborn apparel, books, and toys — Sunday delivery is clearly crossing errands off the weekend to-do list,” said Mike Roth, Amazon’s vice president of North America operations, in a release. “We know our Amazon customers
love the convenience of everyday delivery, and we’re excited to be offering Sunday delivery in more cities across the U.S.”

Customers indicate when they check out if they’re interested in Sunday delivery and must check to see that their items are eligible and that it’s available in their region.

Sunday delivery charges are the same as other days of the week.
