If you’re like me, you can’t wait for the email or phone call telling you that the package you ordered online has shipped. Whether you purchased a new apparel item for yourself, a gift for a friend, or even just your schoolbooks, it’s exciting to get home after a long day and find a package waiting on your doorstep.
On the flip side, there’s nothing worse than arriving home and – instead of seeing your goods – finding a note stuck to the door alerting you that no one was home to sign for the package and thus it could not be delivered. Well, not anymore!
According to The Daily, Amazon will now deliver gift bags and other packages to your local 7-Eleven and alert you via email. To pick up your package, all you need to do is go to the store, scan the bar-code included in the email, and punch in the given PIN number.
The partnership is still in the early stages but, if it works, you should be able to pick up your Amazon gift bags at 7-Eleven within the next year.
