There’s NO doubt that fast delivery is something we are ALL looking for, especially around birthdays and holidays. Just ask anyone who shells out $119 a year for an Amazon Prime membership. But guess what? As I recently wrote, Amazon Prime 2-day shipping is a thing of the past for most of us. And while most websites have the option to get it delivered in 2 days, it’ll usually cost you an arm and a leg to make it happen. With that said, here are all the retailers that will deliver your order within 2 days WITHOUT charging you a penny extra.
Whether you’re ordering a new iPhone, iPad, or Apple Watch, Apple will deliver it within 2 days.
