Prime members in San Francisco and Atlanta will get free 2-hour delivery service. first told you about this service when it launched last month in Austin, Cincinnati, Dallas and Virginia Beach.

The service offers free delivery on any order over $35 for Prime members, with a $7.99 delivery fee available for orders under that. "Together, we have already lowered prices on many items, and this offering makes Prime customers' lives even easier". Alcohol is available in San Francisco, although state regulations prevent alcohol from being delivered in Atlanta. They can place their orders through the separate Prime Now website or through the Prime Now app.

Amazon is guided by four principles: customer obsession rather than competitor focus, passion for invention, commitment to operational excellence, and long-term thinking.
