Amazon Prime Now Extends One-hour Delivery Magic to Surrey

By Gary Cutlack on at

Amazon's slightly extended the coverage options for its Prime Now virtually instant delivery service, with the one-hour arrival of important things now live for some customers in Surrey.

Amazon says "selected postcodes" in the likes of Camberley, Lightwater and Aldershot may now have things arrive while the buyer is still yet to close the order tab, without even a drone in sight. As ever, buyers must be a member of Amazon Prime to qualify for the option, and even then there's a £6.99 delivery fee to have a van rush your essential groceries to you in a hurry. Two-hour slots are free, with orders processed between 8am and midnight.

Here, in one of the most boring things to yet make it onto Gizmodo UK non-ironically, are the new post codes covered:

GU1, GU2, GU3, GU4, GU7, GU8, GU9, GU10, GU11, GU12, GU14, GU15, GU16, GU17, GU18, GU19, GU20, GU21, GU22, GU23, GU24, GU25, GU46, GU47, GU51, GU52, KT14, KT15, KT16, RG12, RG21, RG22, RG24, RG27, RG29, RG40, RG41, RG42, RG45, SL5, TW20

Amazon also took the opportunity to tell us about the most popular rush orders in 2015, saying: "The most popular Prime Now purchase of 2015 was the Fire TV Stick -- closely followed by bottled water, Pepsi Max and Terry’s Chocolate Orange."

Some people needed a chocolate orange in hurry. This country. [Amazon]
