amazon sends you a unique code to retrieve your pacge and this is always free. another thing that's also free is in-car delivery. this is news to me. love this idea. if you own a connected cars that allows remote lock and unlock features amazon delivery drivers can leave your package inside your car for you. check the app to see whether the rvice is available to you, and ask a neighbor to grab it it for you. that's another good idea. make sure youave your amazon notifications turned on so you know your package is delivered. just send your neighbor a quick text when it arrives or have it delivereto your office. this is a great alternative if your workplace actuallyow all personal delivery and considering ins of mllions of people actually phadkages stolen last year, this is certainly not a bad idea to come up with, a plan before you actur ly place youorder. >> yeah, right. >> because that's frustrating. >> it is. >> it is. >> for sure. >> thanks. . good stuff
