Three is now offering same-day delivery, if you live in London

We’re in the run-up to Christmas right now, and Christmas inevitably means shopping for presents and worrying about them arriving on time. Don’t worry though, Three has announced that it is now offering same-day delivery if you live in London.

As great as this offer might be, it’s not without its limitations. For starters you can only get same-day delivery if you buy an iPhone 6 or a Samsung Galaxy S5. Secondly you’re going to have to slap a £15 delivery charge onto your basket total.

Not everyone in London is eligible either. Only people living in a set collection of postcodes can take advantage of same-day delivery, so everyone else will have to manage like the rest of the country. Which postcodes are eligible is unclear, so you’ll just have to head over to Three’s website and check your own manually.

You also have to order before 3pm to get your phone that day, but really that should go without saying.

It’s a small start, and who knows maybe one day we’ll see this rolled out across the country. Until then we’ll just have to wait and see if this is a success.
