Christmas Eve has arrived and if you're still out a few gifts, we've got good news. Amazon is extending many of its last-minute deals through the holiday and many deals can still ship and arrive by Christmas.
Items with same-day delivery include everything from the inexpensive Fire Tablet to various Bose headphones.
There is a catch: You must live in a city where Amazon offers same-day delivery courtesy of its Prime Now delivery service. It also helps to be a Prime member. Prime members get free same-day delivery shipping on orders priced $35 or more. Non-Prime members pay $9.98 per item. (You can sign up for a free trial if you're not already a member and cancel before it renews). You'll also need to sign into your Amazon account to see your expedited shipping options. (If you're not signed in, you won't see the "arrives before Christmas" text).
So stay indoors, ditch the crowded department stores, and check out the best Amazon deals with same-day delivery from the comforts of your home.
