Google Express arrives in Boston, Chicago and Washington DC

Google Express

Google Express is a same-day delivery service that intends to compete directly with Amazon. After being rebranded to Google Express from Google Shopping Express, the company has also expanded its service to new cities - Boston, Chicago, and Washington, DC.

With this expansion, the same-day delivery service will be available in the following metropolitan areas across the US:
  • San Francisco
  • Peninsula & San Jose
  • West Los Angeles
  • Manhattan
  • Chicago
  • Boston
  • Washington, DC
Overnight delivery is available to Northern California. What you can have delivered depends on where you are, but the choice of items is dependent on which partner stores are in the area, including Barnes and Noble, Costco, Whole Foods, Guitar Center, Staples, Sports Authority, Payless Shoes, Toys R Us, Tiger Direct, Target, Google Play, and more.

Google Express partners

Google Express sends one of its own employees to the store you want to purchase items from, buys them for you, and delivers them to your door. There is no markup, and any orders over $15 have free shipping, as long as you are a subscriber.

To subscribe to the service, it will cost you $10 per month or $95 per year. Or, if you don't want to subscribe, it will cost you $4.99 per delivery. In comparison, Amazon Prime, which costs $99 per year, offers same-day delivery on certain items in more areas, and costs $5.99 for each delivery. This is a competition that should keep going for quite a while now.
