Not that Amazon needs to make shopping easier or more enticing, but hey if you’re already winning the game why not try to constantly make life even more exciting for your customers.

From Prime Day, to Prime Pantry, to having every product under the sun Amazon has been a game-changer in online shopping. Amazon first intruduced the Treasure Truck in Seattle back in 2015 and has since been expanding it’s footprint across the country. Now they are bringing this unique shopping experience to Charlotte!

What is the Treasure Truck? According to the FAQ’s listed on Amazon’s website “Treasure Truck is an unexpected way to shop with Amazon. We feature one hand-picked, must-have item at a time and share it over text. You pick it up same-day from the location that works best for you. Every time you swing by, you’ll find something new to enjoy, like games, giveaways, tasty treats, and other surprises.”

So how exactly does it work? Just text TRUCK” to 24193 and verify your Amazon account and the deals will be sent to you. Quantities are limited and tend to sell out quickly.

There is no word on an official launch date, but according to Charlotte Agenda it’s launching in Charlotte sometime in September.

While my bank account isn’t excited, I’m definitely excited to see what the first offer will be!
