Best Buy Adds Same-Day Delivery Test In San Francisco

Last-minute holiday shopping just got a bit easier for some Californians who simply forget to grab a gift for your electronics-loving family and friends: Best Buy is testing same-day delivery. 

The electronics retailer announced this weekend that it added the quick delivery option for certain areas around San Francisco, Re/code reports.

Under the test, Best Buy will use Deliv to provide the same-day delivery of purchases in San Francisco and towns and cities between there and San Jose.

Fees for same-day delivery will be the same as the company’s express shipping option, which varies in price. Best Buy already offers customers the choice of in-store pickup.

The retailer joins the throngs of other retailers dipping their toes in the world of same-day delivery, including Macy’s, Bloomingdales, Kohl’s and others.
