“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. “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.”

Since Sunday delivery launched, millions of packages have been delivered on Sunday to Amazon customers. Amazon and the U.S. Postal Service plan to continue to roll out Sunday delivery to a large portion of the U.S. population this year.

To participate, Amazon customers can simply add any of the millions of eligible items to their cart and see the Sunday delivery promise at checkout when available in their region.
