Amazon’s Treasure Truck will hit the streets of Charlotte this September for the first time ever. It’ll featured one hand-picked offer at a time and allows you to buy it and pick it up on the same day.
Maybe I’m just an Amazon-loving dude who enjoys marketing stuff, but I’m pretty excited about this.
Previous Amazon Treasure Truck offers include La Creuset pots, Rocktbook notebooks, Cutetitos kid toys, Mario Badescu skin care and Ring Cameras.
How it works: Amazon features a single discounted item and shares it with you via text. Only a limited amount are available, so you have to act fast. You buy it on Amazon. Then you go pick it up same-day from the Treasure Truck location (or other more convenient spots) that’ll often have games, giveaways, tasty treats and other surprises.

Alerts: The easiest way to find out what’s on the Treasure Truck is to text “TRUCK” to 24193. Amazon will then let you know about each and every new offer. You can text “STOP” to cancel. I just signed up and Amazon sent a confirmation text back that reads, “You’re in! We’ll let you know when Treasure Truck is rolling through town with something new.”
Frequency: Treasure Truck offers will happen a few times a week, year round. “Treasure Truck will start rolling through Charlotte in September,” an Amazon representative told the Agenda.
“We’ve been so excited by the customer reaction to Treasure Truck the last couple of years from all across the country. Our customers love the surprise of what new hand-picked, must-have item is on Treasure Truck each day and being able to pick it up from convenient locations where they live, work and play,” explained Margot Johnson, Director of Treasure Truck at Amazon. “Now, we’re thrilled to continue expanding this one-of-a-kind shopping experience with more cities, offers, events, pickup locations and vehicles — to deliver even more delight.”
