Verizon testing same day delivery for online orders

Verizon testing same day delivery for online orders
Here is something that should quicken the pulse rate of many PhoneArena readers. Verizon is testing a new program in Philadelphia that would allow those ordering devices with or without accessories from Verizon's website, to have the order arrive the very same day. Of course, that type of instant gratification doesn't come free. The cost of the same day delivery is $19.99 which is $5 more than priority overnight. Orders need to be placed before 10am, Monday through Friday.

Big Red plans on expanding the service to New York City, San Francisco, Dallas and Pittsburgh. According to a recent survey conducted by Boston Consulting Group, those in the 18-34 year-old demographic with 6 figure incomes, known as "affluent millennials" are 56% more likely to pay up for same day delivery than the average consumer. Melanie VanderValk, Verizon Wireless vice president – national distribution, says that the carrier wants its customers to have multiple shipping options.
