Amazon usually delivers on a timely basis. Amazon Prime members get even better service.
Now, though, there's a step above Amazon Prime: It's called Amazon Prime Now and it offers one-hour delivery . It's not quite the 30-minute drone delivery service they've been exploring but it's still pretty cool.
Prime Now is only available to subscribers based in Manhattan but other cities will follow in 2015. In an hour or less, you can get your hands on "tens of thousands" of items, and this includes various "essentials" you might really need fast. So, towels, shampoo, batteries, and such things might be atop the list. They'll also deliver other items and this includes video games, so get ready to choose and play almost immediately! Of course, I suppose you could just go to the store, too.
The Prime Now app can be downloaded from iTunes or Google Play; there's an $8 fee associated with Now, but the two-hour delivery option is free. As of now, there are multiple big-name games, consoles and accessories available via this new service. If you live in Manhattan, you might want to give it a try… It's ready and waiting seven days a week, between 6 a.m. and midnight.
