ST. LOUIS — Amazon customers in St. Louis now have a new service to try out next time they order through the retail giant.
Tuesday, Amazon announced an expansion of Amazon Key — a service which enables in-home delivery and keyless guest access — with the addition of in-car delivery. The service, called Amazon Key In-Car, allows Prime members with compatible vehicles to have packages delivered to their cars when its parked in a publicly accessible area.
Amazon Key In-Car comes free of charge to Amazon Prime members, the subscription services which offers free two-day shipping and exclusive discounts. The service begins Tuesday in 37 cities across the country including St. Louis.
“The in-car delivery option is another way Amazon helps ensure that my order is delivered safely and conveniently," an Amazon Prime member said in part in a statement. "I can't wait to check my car's trunk to see what's delivered next!"
In-car delivery will be available to Amazon customers with a compatible 2015 or newer Chevrolet, Buck, GMC or Cadillac vehicles with active OnStar accounts. Additionally, Volvo drivers with current Volvo OnStar accounts are granted access to the service.
