Online retail giant Amazon is live with a new partnership that offers same-day delivery from Rite Aid for Prime members.

The perk is occurring from only two Rite Aid locations in the U.S., according to the Amazon platform.

Amazon says on its website that there will be two-hour delivery windows available for same-day shipment.

Online shoppers can find almost everything they'd see on the shelves in store, but prescriptions would not be able to be shipped through the Prime service.

In order to take advantage of the service, shoppers have to live close to the Rite Aid at 104 12th Avenue in Newark, or a location in Burbank, California.

While shipments delivered via Prime are generally free, there are service fees attached to orders under $100 (between $2.95 and $6.95). Additional fees apply "on rush options," Amazon says.

"Tipping is completely optional," the site adds. "If you elect to leave a tip, the entire tip goes to your driver. You also have 24 hours to edit or change your tip after delivery."

Weird things NJ taxes - and some they don't

In general, New Jersey assesses a 6.625% Sales Tax on sales of most tangible personal property, specified digital products, and certain services unless specifically exempt under New Jersey law.
However, the way the sales tax is applied in New Jersey sometimes just doesn't make sense.
New Jersey puts out an itemized list for retailers that spells out what is, and what is not, taxed. 
Perhaps because this is New Jersey, there are some bizarre and seemingly contradictory listings.
