Want a package from Amazon, but don't want to wait until Monday to get it? The company has just solved that problem for folks in some cities across the US.

Amazon has expanded its Sunday delivery service to 15 additional cities, including Austin and Dallas, Texas; New Orleans; and Columbus, Ohio. Those cities, among others, join Los Angeles and New York, which got their hands on Sunday delivery in November when the program launched. The other cities recently added to the list are: College Station, Houston, San Antonio, and Waco, Texas; Cincinnati; Indianapolis; Lexington and Louisville, Kentucky; Oklahoma City; Philadelphia; and Shreveport, Louisiana.

To get packages to customers on Sunday, Amazon has partnered with the US Postal Service to make those deliveries. According to the company, millions of packages have already been delivered on Sunday to just L.A. and New York, and the company plans to roll out Sunday delivery to more areas across the US throughout the year.

Amazon's Sunday delivery is just the latest in a long line of efforts the company is undertaking to improve its customer service. Amazon recently expanded its same-day delivery service and is also working on drone technology that would get products to customer doors in as little as 30 minutes after ordering.

CNET has contacted Amazon for additional comment on its Sunday delivery service. We will update this story when we have more information.
