Here’s an act of kindness we can all do this holiday season and it doesn’t cost us a thing. Amazon has come up with a way for customers to be able to thank their delivery drivers and give them a tip. After all, what would the holiday season be without them?
According to Today, the company kicked off a program this week where you say, “Alexa, thank my driver,” and your delivery driver gets $5. The feature is available to U.S. customers with an Alexa-enabled device or the Alexa or Amazon Shopping mobile apps.
This is a limited program available only for the first one million “thank-yous,” but there’s a big bonus at the end. The five Amazon drivers who receive the most thank yous will also receive a $10,000 bonus, plus $10,000 donated to the charity of their choice.
I think this is a great idea and I hope that the company expands on it in the future. So as truck after truck filled with your holiday purchases from Amazon make their way to your home, don’t forget to say thanks!
