After customers place their order on Amazon, they then select a convenient pickup location and timeslot to get their item. In addition to the iconic trucks, customers can pick up their treasure at newly-launched vans, as well as kiosks located in select Amazon Books, Amazon Go, Whole Foods Market stores and more.

Customers can expect offers on exclusive items, trending tech and the latest gear, seasonally relevant must-haves, amazing deals on limited-quantity items from hundreds of top brands and more.
