Same day delivery is something everyone wishes they could have, but the concept is still quite rare for most businesses these days, and the ones that do offer it only offer it in a few select cities. Thankfully Verizon’s not looking to drag their feet on rolling out same day delivery to those who need their smartphones in a jiffy, as the nation’s largest carrier has added 10 more cities to their list.

Here’s the full gamut after the new additions:

  • Atlanta
  • Baltimore
  • Boston
  • Chicago
  • Houston
  • Los Angeles
  • Minneapolis
  • San Diego
  • Seattle
  • Washington, D.C.
  • New York City
  • Dallas
  • Philadelphia
  • Pittsburgh
  • San Francisco

That’s 15 cities now in case you haven’t been counting, which is a remarkable achievement. Of course, comparing Verizon’s efforts to the likes of Google or Amazon’s isn’t quite fair, as the carrier already has a huge stable of retail locations nationwide that can help facilitate these types of deliveries.┬áStill, we’re excited to see Verizon expanding as fast as they are, and we can’t wait to see even more cities added to this list (and they also get brownie points for still being the only US carrier to offer something like this).

There are a couple of small, yet expected caveats to take note of if you want to get your device the same day. For starters, it costs $19.99 — $5 more than overnight delivery — and you do have to order it by 10am local time, so be sure to wake up bright and early and pay for the smartphone if you want to receive it that same day. Otherwise, you can have it delivered the next day using standard overnight options for $14.99.

Of course, you can still pick-up in-store at most Verizon locations same day no matter what time you order it, so that’s also an option if you want to get your order the same day. You can also opt for standard delivery options (which typically come in 2-3 days). We’d definitely consider checking all these different options out the next time you’re in the market for a Verizon device.
