Six months after Best Buy jumped on the same-day delivery bandwagon by launching a pilot program in San Francisco, the electronics retailer plans to expand those tests to additional cities around the country. 

Best Buy unveiled plans this week to expand same-day delivery of everything from phone chargers to laptops to additional cities served by delivery partner Deliv.

In addition to San Francisco and New York, which was added to the tests earlier this year, customers in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, Philadelphia, Seattle, and Washington, D.C. can place orders through and have them delivered in a matter of hours.

Best Buys says that customers can choose the quick-shipping option by selecting “expedited shipping” when checking out. Fees for same-day delivery vary between $10 to $20 per order. Best Buy already offers customers the choice of in-store pickup.

Orders must be placed on by 3 p.m. local time and will be delivered by 9 p.m. that day. Same-day shipping is not available on Sunday or for items that weigh more than 50 pounds.

“The same-day delivery initiative is part of Best Buy’s ongoing commitment to improving the in-store and online shopping experience,” the company says. “We want our shoppers to be able to get what they want, when and where they want it.”
