Amazon delivery: When is the last order date for delivery before Christmas Day?

has revealed the last order dates available to online customers.

The retail company will guarantee delivery before December 25th for Christmas shoppers that order before Wednesday 20th and opt for its free delivery option.

Customers using the Standard Delivery option (née First Class Delivery) can order as late as 11:59pm on Thursday 21st.

Amazon calculates the cost of its Standard Delivery option by calculating the weight of the items in your order.

For orders from multiple product categories, the higher per delivery rate will apply.

Prime subscribers can get items delivered by Standard Delivery for free.

For those who don’t know, Amazon Prime costs £79 a year and includes access to thousands of movies and TV shows with Prime Video, ad-free playback on hundreds of hand-built playlists and access over a million songs with Prime Music. 

There’s also unlimited photo storage online, 30-minute early access to Amazon’s fast-paced Lightning Deals and unlimited one-day delivery on millions of products on the Amazon Store. Amazon also offers a monthly £7.99 a month plan, too. Those who are signed-up to Amazon Prime can leave things even more last-minute.

This year, Amazon is also delivering on Christmas Eve, Sunday 24th December.

That means family members with a Prime membership can place One-Day Delivery orders on Saturday 23rd, and get Same-Day and Prime Now eligible items as late as 9:15pm.

Those who aren’t signed-up to Amazon Prime will have to pay £6.99 per delivery.

Amazon says that these “last order dates and times are subject to availability, and may change due to circumstances outside of our reasonable control.”

The news comes days after with money-off some top technology including its award-winning Echo speaker.

This voice-powered device was recently refreshed with a new design plus improved sound and it is now just £69.99 – a saving of £20 off its original price.

Along with its own-brand gadgets getting a discount, Amazon has also reduced prices on a range of other devices including Microsoft’s Surface Pro tablet, Fitbit fitness trackers and B&O headphones. Amazon’s deal run until December 22nd.
