Google Shopping Express Offers Lucky San Franciscans Free Same Day Delivery

Google is accepting applications for beta testers for Google Shopping Express – a new same day delivery from merchants like Office Depot, Target, and Blue Bottle. Lucky shoppers selected for the pilot program will get free same day delivery for six months.

Today we’re starting a new experiment, Google Shopping Express. It’s a local delivery service that we hope will make it possible for you to get the items you order online the same day, and at a low cost. It’s incredibly early days and so the service is only available to a small number of people in the Bay Area.


 

There’s no indication from Google how much the shipping service will eventually cost, but sources are claiming it will be $10 or $15 cheaper than Amazon Prime who offers next day shipping.
