Does Amazon Deliver on Sunday?

This is now the most popular question of all time “Does Amazon deliver on Sunday?”

As you already know, Amazon is the world’s largest e-commerce marketplace and is well-known for its fast shipping. Specifically, in 2009, Amazon’s same-day delivery started to deliver as quickly as possible. Recently, this question became popular when 2 to 3 buyers claimed they had received the parcel from Amazon on Sunday. After that, all buyers wanted to know whether Amazon offers Sunday delivery or not. Is this kind of new service that Amazon is going to start? If yes, then why do all buyers not have access to Sunday delivery?

After receiving so many queries on this question, we decided to develop a detailed guide that could explain all your questions. So, after experiencing and verifying all the information from Amazon, we are sharing this information with you, so being a buyer helps you with how you can get Amazon Sunday delivery. So, without wasting time, let’s get into the guide:

Does amazon deliver on Sundays?

Start with the basic question to clarify your confusion. Therefore, the simple answer is YES, but there is an exception!

Amazon Sunday delivery is not for everyone. After reading the previous sentence, you might think it might be for the prime members like every premium feature is for them, but it’s here. It’s not like that. 

Amazon weekend delivery, specifically Sunday delivery, is only for specific areas. It’s not about the prime member. This service is for everyone (Prime and non-prime members) but only belong to specific areas. Now, what does mean by specific areas mean?

This service is only for the urban areas where shipping is easy. 

USPS delivery Sunday Amazon

Before Amazon’s logistic service was launched, Amazon had a deal with USPS regarding the Sunday delivery. The deal was that USPS would deliver to every prime and non-prime customer on Sunday but in specific areas. More specifically, the customers from the Los Angeles and New York metropolitical areas. So, that was the reason why only a few of the customers got the Sunday delivery option. 

 So, to check whether USPS deliver to your area or not, you will get to know them at the checkout page. If you have seen USPS vans and employees in your area but didn’t get any Sunday delivery option on the checkout page, then contact USPS; they will ask for your zip code and tell you whether the service is advisable in your area or not. 

Does Amazon ship on weekends?

Yes! As I mentioned earlier about Amazon logistics service, Amazon launched their shipping service in 2014 but was not well developed at that time. But after the supply chain crisis, Amazon makes some biggest investments in their logistic systems to start their global transportation network. They allow small startups and beginners who want to start their package delivery system. 

Due to the rapid growth in Amazon’s logistic system, they are now successfully shipping 72% of orders. And now, they are taking some big steps on UPS and FedEx. In this way, Amazon is not only competing against the big companies but making their Flywheel stronger.

So, Amazon does not only provide weekend deliveries but also offers 50% low prices than UPS and FedEx.

 Here are some of the reviews of the people on Reddit:

You can get the answer I explained above through the screenshot above. However, Amazon has its shipping service and delivers 70% of the orders seven days a week. But, still, 30% of the orders are shipped by third-party services like USPS, UPS and FedEx that offer Sunday delivery to specific areas. 

But after seeing how fast Amazon is improving and expanding their logistic service, one day will come when Amazon will ship all their orders by themselves. Amazon launched their logistic service by keeping three main objectives in their mind:

  1. Deliver smiles.
  2. Reduce the shipping time.
  3. Offer 24/7 shipping service.

What days does Amazon not deliver?

  Although Amazon tries its best to deliver you fast shipping, there are some specific days on which Amazon does not provide you with any delivery service, even if you are a prime member. Neither will you have any delivery service on UPS, USPS and FedEx these days. 

  1. New Year’s Day.
  2. Memorial Day.
  3. Labor Day.
  4. Thanks Giving day.
  5. New Year’s Eve.

Other than these days, Amazon will deliver your orders 7 days a week.

Does Amazon deliver at night?

 Yes, the Amazon delivery time is usually between 6:00 am to 10:00 pm local time. So, it might be possible that you will receive your package at night. Most of the time, the late delivery is due to the same-day and next-day delivery. Usually, the prime customer receives late-night deliveries.

Does Amazon deliver on easter Sunday 2022?

Yes, Amazon does deliver on easter Sunday because Easter does not come under a U.S federal holiday. Above, we have mentioned the days and events on which Amazon does not provide delivery.

Does Amazon deliver to P.O boxes?

Yes, but to ensure that your package will be delivered to the P.O. box, not your doorstep, you need to enter that address to address line 1.


Because, whenever a package will be delivered to you, it will always first be delivered to the address 1. Address 2 is a backup address used when the package cannot be delivered to address 1.

If you don’t have a P.O. near you and travel a lot or don’t have a permanent address and want to keep your package safe, you can use Hub Lockers. 

Is Amazon open on Sundays?

The answer is yes! 

As we have discussed, Amazon tries its best to provide delivery 7 days a week and on what days don’t. 

Does Amazon deliver earlier than estimated time?

Yes, Amazon does deliver faster than its estimated time. Here are some of the reviews of the buyers on that:

But there could be some Amazon shipping delays due to weather conditions, incorrect addresses, etc.

Do Amazon delivery drivers know what you ordered?
