Prime members get free same-day shipping; otherwise, non-members pay a flat fee of $9.99 per order. Remember, same-day delivery is available in 90 U.S. metro areas including New York, San Francisco, Dallas, St. Louis, and more.

    Thanks for the tip on the air fryer, but I suggest people buy it from Target. There's no Amazon shipping that guarantees it by Christmas but I got the same price and free shipping with delivery 12/16 on Target.
