Bed Bath & Beyond is offering a limited, same-day delivery promotion for Bed Bath & Beyond and BuyBuy Baby customers, the company said Friday.
The company launched a three-day promotion with Shipt, which began on Dec. 14 and will run through Dec. 16. Free same day delivery will be available on eligible products and orders over $39. Shipt's last-mile service, Shipt Driven, will fulfill the same-day orders.
The retailer is also offering 20% off total purchase on curbside pickup or BOPIS orders from Dec. 17 to Dec. 24, according to the company announcement.
The company introduced its same-day delivery service to let customers get last-minute holiday items from home and beat the holiday rush, EVP and chief digital officer of Bed Bath & Beyond Rafeh Masood, said in a statement. Once the promotion period is over, customers will still be able to access the retailer's same-day delivery service for $4.99 on orders over $39, per the announcement.
Bed Bath & Beyond is one of many retailers that have introduced same-day delivery options for consumers during the COVID-19 pandemic. The list of stores rolling out same-day delivery services now includes Best Buy, Sam's Club, Chico's and PetSmart.
With more consumers turning to e-commerce during the pandemic, reports indicate a surge in online and mobile shopping as well as possibly more package delays. Research from LateShipment.com suggests that both FedEx and UPS could face noticeable package delays during this year's holiday season, particularly in densely-populated cities. Online sales reached a record $9 billion on Black Friday, a 22% increase over last year, according to Adobe Analytics data. Additionally, this year's Cyber Monday sales drew $10.8 billion in online sales, a 15.1% increase in e-commerce sales from last year.
