Did you know that Amazon offers a safe and convenient pick up service called Amazon Locker? Find out exactly how to use this new service and why you'd even want to use it!
Amazon Locker Locations
Did you know Amazon has safe locker locations that you can have your deliveries sent to when you're not home (or whenever you want)? It's SUPER easy to use!
This service is called Amazon Locker, and while it isn't available everywhere yet, it is a growing service that is now available in these locations.
This is great to use if you're away on vacation and don't want to leave it at your front door. Or really for simple peace of mind when so often packages are getting stolen off porches. (That is priceless nowadays 🙂 )
And, right now, you can score $5 off your first order whenever you pick it up at an Amazon Pickup location and use the code PICKUPFIVE at checkout. Note that this code is valid on select items and for the first 20,000 eligible customers or through September 2nd.
I was able to take advantage of this promo and snag my favorite L'Oreal mascara for under $1.90 after coupon, subscribe & save, and $5 off Hub promo code. Woohoo!
How do you use Amazon Locker?
To use this easy alternative to regular Amazon home delivery,
- Just shop as usual on Amazon. (Find the best deals over HERE)
- During checkout, specify the Amazon Locker as your delivery location.
- Once your package is delivered, you'll receive an email alert with a 6-digit pick-up code.
- You have 3 days to pick up your package or it will be returned for refund
- Head to your Amazon locker, punch in the code and voila! – your items are waiting in a safe, cool environment.
*You can alternately scan the barcode from your email to avoid touching locker pinpad surfaces.
There's no extra cost to use an Amazon Locker either – it's FREE!
This is a new service, but I have 19 near me including Stein Mart, Whole Foods, GNC and a few local pharmacies! See how many are near you here.

Having Amazon Prime definitely makes me more apt to use Amazon (which saves me running out for just one item when I need it), and is a huge time saver for me. I do think you can sometimes get better deals if you have time to use coupons matched up with the sales ad (use this search engine HERE to always find the best deals), but often Amazon works for me!What else would you add to the list, or what items do you think don't work for you? Leave a comment to share – I love hearing from you!
