That is, if you live in the San Francisco Bay Area
Google Play is offering overnight shipping for about $19 if you are looking to pull the trigger on a red Nexus 5 today, but if you happen to live in the San Francisco area you can have it delivered today for free. Google's up-and-coming delivery service, Google Shopping Express, is making its debut delivering items from Google Play today with the Nexus 5, and it's a pretty sweet system.
Primarily used for regular shopping items such as home essentials and food, Google Shopping Express acts as a middleman delivery service to pick up things you just don't want to leave the house for and deliver them to your door the same day. The service is currently operating at a very limited capacity — hence the geographical restriction — but to entice folks to take advantage it's free for the first six months if you sign up.
And that means you can pick up a red Nexus 5 (either 16 or 32GB) for the same price as Google Play, not pay any shipping costs and have it today rather than several days from now. Sounds like a pretty sweet deal to get a few more people trying Google Shopping Express to us. You can order from on the web at the source link below, or from the Android app at the link above.
