Amazon Delivers Amazon Locker Service to New York City

I received an email today that will save me from the horrible customer service delivered by my local post office station.  Amazon is launching its Amazon Locker Service in New York City.

All Amazon customers in New York City now have the Amazon locker service available to them.  and it’s free of charge.

 

 

This gem of a feature was dreamed up to allow customers to circumvent the annoying annoyance of ordering something from the massive online retailer, only to be foiled by the expansive delivery options offered by Federal Express, the USPS, and UPS, which for some reasno always deliver something when I am at work or traveling. In other words, they don’t leave the packages at my apartment, fearing theft and then customer blame levied on them.

Instead, they now have this handy service where you can have a package delivered to a locker housed in a convenience store, as their email below explains:

There’s no additional cost for using Amazon Locker to receive your Amazon orders. If you’re an Amazon Prime member, you’ll still get the unlimited fast shipping you’re used to–including free Two-Day Shipping on millions of items.

To use the Amazon Locker service, add items to your cart on Amazon.com and follow the steps below:

1. Click “Proceed to Checkout” and sign in to your account.
2. Click the “Find an Amazon Locker location near you” link. (If you don’t see the link, click “Change” next to your delivery address.)
3. Search for an Amazon Locker and click “Ship to this address.”
4. Continue through checkout as usual.

Once your package is delivered to the Amazon Locker, you’ll receive an e-mail with instructions and a unique pick-up code. When you go to the Amazon Locker, enter your pick-up code and the locker with your package will open.

This is awesome for only one reason. My postal worker refuses to take packages from the post office to my door, and it doesn’t matter whether its sleeting, snowing, or if ladies are walking around with sun dresses on during a wonderful May day in downtown NYC.
