Salmon burgers, paddle boards, video game systems, special edition Amazon Echos, and unicorn pool floats are just a few items customers have snagged from the Amazon Treasure Truck. Hyper local and on-demand, the Amazon Treasure Truck brings a variety of items to 30 major cities in the United States and the United Kingdom. By offering a one-day opportunity to purchase a discounted item, the Treasure Truck allows Amazon customers a unique shopping experience that capitalizes on the dreaded fear of missing out (FOMO).
“At Treasure Truck, we hand-pick our favorite new, trending, local, or delicious items, load them on the Truck, then cruise around town spreading joy for everyone with an appetite for fun. Every time you swing by the Truck, you’ll find something new to enjoy, like games, giveaways, tasty treats, and other surprises,” said Amazon, detailing how the Treasure Truck works.
Treasure Truck history
The first Treasure Truck began cruising Seattle streets in June 2015, and gradually grew to include cities across the U.S., from Boston to Atlanta and Nashville to San Diego. In December 2017, the Treasure Truck saw its first international expansion to the United Kingdom with trucks in London, Manchester and Birmingham.
How do customers buy items?
Any Amazon customer who lives in a city served by the Treasure Truck is eligible to purchase the day’s deal through the Amazon app or website. By visiting the Treasure Truck homepage, customers can see what deal is being offered for their area. Those wishing to purchase it, simply click a button and select their pickup location. The app offers handy details like how big the item is so customers can plan transport and a map of how to find the Treasure Truck’s exact location.
Those wishing to keep in-the-know can follow the Treasure Truck on Twitter, or sign up for text alerts for their city. Of course, only so much fits on the truck at one time, and some deals are so good, they sell out quickly. Learning about deals particular to your city is easy, with a visit to amazon.com/treasuretruck.
