Last month, Amazon revealed that it would be working to reduce its free Prime shipping by half, from two days to one, and it seems that the company has already begun to implement the function in some areas, as signaled by SlickDeals .
The Verge has been able to confirm the new option that appears in several Prime articles (as shown in the image below), with a new "Prime FREE One-Day" label that replaces the usual promise of two days. The new one-day shipping times seem to spread slowly: my account, for example, still promises two-day shipping, while my colleague Dan Seifert is already offering him the option of a free day.
While Amazon has previously offered free shipping in one day and the same day for Prime customers, in the past it was limited to orders over $ 35. The new one-day standard Amazon is working on offers the shipping speed to all Prime orders, similar to the current two-day version, with no minimum price.
Amazon's chief financial officer, Brian Olsavsky, previously promised that "it will take us a significant amount of time to achieve" sending one day across the board, so if you do not have it yet, you may need to be patient. But for some Prime customers, at least, instant gratification has doubled.
