The local Apple store delivered my iPad today…via courier.
I decided last night to pull the trigger and order a 2018 iPad 128GB in gold. I was purchasing it online with the intent to pick it up in the store when I saw an option for local courier delivery…I did not know that was a thing! I chose it because for me, it was worth a $9 delivery fee to avoid going to the mall, plus I was curious. I got a two hour delivery window estimate and text updates with the courier’s progress. They appear to use contractors (my delivery person was a guy in a Lexus SUV with a dog hanging out the window) and he was within three minutes of the estimated arrival.
This might be old news to some, but I did not know this was a thing…I’m sure you have to spend a minimum amount of money, and I’m not sure it’s available in all markets (Portland here) but I just wanted to share because I thought it was cool. 🙂
