Starting next month, when you order something from Best Buy, you can get it later that day. 

The Minnesota-based retailer said Thursday it's expanding its same-day delivery service to a bunch more cities, including the Minneapolis-St. Paul area. 

Same-day delivery will begin in the Twin Cities on Sept. 6. By that time, the service will be available in 27 cities, and Best Buy says by the holiday season it expects to have same-day delivery available in 40 cities. 

How much will it cost? 

Same-day delivery will cost you $5.99, which is cheaper than the $10-$20 it cost when Best Buy began testing the service in 2016. 

All you have to do is place your order by 3 p.m. (2 p.m. if it's a Sunday), and you'll get your stuff by 9 p.m. 

Best Buy is using a third-party driver to pick up the items from a store and bring them to your door. 

Best Buy notes that it has also expanded the products that are available for same-day delivery, so you'll have more options if you need something right away but don't have time to get to the store. 

However, the fastest way to get the stuff you bought online is still in-store pickup, with most orders being ready in an hour or less, Best Buy says.

The company also says free shipping is available on most products you order online if you don't do same-day delivery.
