Amazon has introduced Instant Pickup, a free service offering Prime and Prime Student members a curated selection of daily essentials available for pickup in two minutes or less. Items available with Instant Pickup include snacks, drinks and electronics, as well as some of Amazon’s most popular devices.
“Instant Pickup is another way Amazon is making life more convenient for Prime members,” said Ripley MacDonald, Director, Student Programs,Amazon.
“As shopping behaviours continue to evolve, customers consistently tell us that they want items even faster. Whether it’s a snack on-the-go, replacing a lost phone charger in the middle of a hectic day or adding Alexa to your life with an Echo, Instant Pickup saves Prime members time. While Instant Pickup is available at select pickup locations today, we’re excited about bringing this experience to more customers soon.”
Instant Pickup is now available at five US universities and will be available at more locations in the coming months. Amazon operates a total of 22 staffed pickup locations on or near college campuses across the country.
