The Amazon Treasure Truck launched in February of 2016, but I’m just now hearing about it and I wanted to pass it along to you ASAP!
Amazon Treasure Truck
The Amazon Treasure Truck is a mobile pop-up shop brought to you straight from Amazon. But don’t expect to browse hundreds of items when it rolls into your town … actually it will likely have just one thing. But a lot of them!
- Sign up for text alerts here.
- You’ll get a text alert when the truck will be in your area, and what item it will have.
- Be sure you have the Amazon shopping app loaded to your phone.
- If you want the item that’ll be on the truck, purchase it through the app.
- Select a pick-up time, then show up!
These are in-demand, must-have items that Amazon hand-picks — it could be outdoor gear, a hot toy item, even food! Here are a few items that have made it onto the Treasure Truck:
- Fingerlings – This is how I learned about the Treasure Truck, from a Facebook conversation about where to find this hot toy (which happens to be on my daughter’s wish list). Fingerlings were available on “Cyber Monkey“. Treasure Truck price $14.99 which is consistent with retail stores; although the supply-and-demand fluctuation on Amazon has them well over $50 as of this writing.
- Polaroid cameras
- Isotoner gloves
- Super Nintendo Classic Edition, Treasure Truck price $79.99.
Amazon Treasure Trucks will make 3-5 stops around a city and hang out for only a couple of hours. Here are the cities currently served:
My friend Nicole who was able to score a Fingerling toy on Monday of this week from the Treasure Truck says,
“The entire process was seamless and fun! The nice thing was, I had all 4 of my kids in the van, one the gift was for, and I didn’t have to get them out AND the bag was discreet enough that she didn’t know it was a toy for her in the bag. They gave out free samples of Airheads gum so I told the kids that’s what I got!”
