If you're in Louisville, it just got even more attractive to impulse-buy on Amazon.

The company announced Wednesday it's expanding its same-day delivery service to Louisville and 10 other cities. The service, which is available to Prime members at no extra charge, provides same-day delivery of items over $35 seven days a week. Orders must be placed in the morning to qualify and are guaranteed to arrive by 9 p.m.

Amazon said its same-day service is now operating in 27 metro areas and more than 1,000 cities and towns.

Amazon Prime is a $99-a-year subscription service that offers members free two-day shipping on many items and other services, like streaming video.

Amazon operates a 1 million-square-foot distribution facility in Jeffersonville, Indiana, where it employs hundreds of people.
