Amazon Christmas supply date 2021: When is the final day on which YOU can order from Amazon?
If you still want to do last-minute Christmas shopping, Amazon is your friend. With fast one-day delivery for Prime members (and even the same day in some areas of the country) if you’re in a hurry to get those last few gifts, Amazon should be able to help you out. But with Christmas only days away, you might be wondering what the deadline to purchase an item from Amazon UK and ensure it arrives before December 25th.
AMAZON: WHEN IS THE LAST ORDER DATE FOR DELIVERY BEFORE CHRISTMAS?
Amazon has not officially announced when the final date for receiving your orders will be before Christmas, but based on the online retailer’s typical delivery estimates and experience over the years, we can predict when you will need to place your orders on.
If you’re not a Prime customer, it will take between three and five days for the deliveries to get to you. So if you want to receive a package before Christmas, the free shipping cut-off time is Sunday 19th December.
If you’re a Prime customer, the last day to get a next-day delivery order in time for Christmas should be Thursday, December 23rd.
For those who want things done until the last minute, Amazon UK also offers Prime Same-Day Delivery for certain regions of the country and for eligible products. You can place an order before noon and receive the package before bed (delivery between 6:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m.).

These delivery times are based on typical timings that Amazon lists for its various delivery options.
And with the clock counting down until Christmas, Amazon is warning customers that deliveries may take longer than usual due to the busy holidays.
The retailer said, “During this busy period, some deliveries may take a little longer than usual. As always, please see your current delivery date at checkout which provides our most accurate estimate of the delivery date and progress of your order at any time by looking at your orders in your account.
And there are plenty of products on the Amazon website that could be in high demand over the next few days, including last-minute Christmas deals with bargains – like a Fire TV Stick Lite for half the price or an Amazon Fire Tablet for just 29, € 99.
Fortunately, if you’re wondering if your order will arrive in time for Christmas, Amazon will let you know on the right side of the product page. Under the pricing information, “Arriving Before Christmas” will be highlighted in green if the item you want arrives before December 25th.
While the above timings will hopefully help and guide you, Express.co.uk has also contacted Amazon UK to confirm the exact deadline for various types of Christmas orders.
