In its bid to get more products to customers quicker, Amazon UK has today added another delivery option for customers. Prime Same Day offers (you guessed it) same-day delivery on one million products, as long as you're already signed up to the company's £79 annual membership. Unlike Prime Now, which costs £6.99 and gets your items to you within an hour, Amazon's new shipping option is free.

To qualify, you must place your order for same-day delivery by noon, any day of the week. Amazon will then deliver your packages between 6pm and 10pm that very same evening. The company says there are no restrictions on the value of your order, but you will need to ensure your items are one of the million eligible Same Day products.

Right now, the service is available to customers mostly living within the M25. That means it'll cover Greater London, but also areas of Hertfordshire and Berkshire (AL, HP and SL postcodes). With Argos now also offering UK-wide same-day deliveries (although they cost £3.95), it really looks like you'll be able to avoid the High Street and leave your shopping until the very last minute this Christmas.
