When you order, it's not just a choice of Prime one-day, you can still check a box at checkout and get it slower, about 2-3 days for a certain credit. What they are looking at is the speed of cycling the cash and inventory. Inventory out is less inventory carried. Paying Chase by using available points pays Chase early in the cycle instead of waiting for the due date.

Yesterday approaching the checkout, Amazon introduced me to Key, and asked if I want it delivered inside or in my trunk or in my car (if you've signed up). To entice me they offered $10 the first time I use Key. I could have had it delivered to Whole Foods to a locker, or to a nearby 7-11 who also has lockers. I let it come in front, so I can observe the pollution impact and efficiency of dropping 2 items (it's probably going to be on separate days). There are many expanded delivery points, all reducing road congestion but also helping to fill this capacity for deliveries, and lowering their cost to deliver from what it used to be through UPS.
