Google Express offers same-day and overnight delivery options

What once was known as Google Shopping Express now has a new name: Google Express. The service provides same-day (or next day) delivery of everyday items from stores in your area.
 
In addition to the name change, Google is also providing a yearly membership for heavy users of Google Express. In a clear shot at Amazon Prime — which now costs $99/year — Google Express will be offered for $95/year. The yearly membership fee will give you free same-day or overnight delivery on all “eligible” orders of $15 or more. Subscribers will also receive priority access to available delivery windows and can share the membership with one additional household member.
 
If you don’t want to pay the $95/year, you can also choose to pay $10/month (this would be handy, for example, if you just wanted to use the service around the holidays for gift buying) or you can just pay the flat $4.99 per order.
 
Google also hopes to entice new users of the service with a free three-month trial.
 
Google has partnered with nearly 40 merchants (16 have been added within the past month) to ensure that just about all of your shopping needs are satisfied without even having to leave the comfort of your home.
However, despite the fact that the folks from Mountain View would like to see Google Express as a clear winner over Amazon Prime and Amazon Local Express Delivery, the service is only available in a handful of metropolitan areas across the U.S. (Los Angeles, San Francisco Bay Area, NYC, Boston, Chicago, Washington, D.C.) and only reaches 7 million people for same-day service and 12 million for next-day service.
