Treasure Truck

The Treasure Truck is a service offered to users of the Amazon.com app, which offers users a discounted daily deal.[1] The service comprises of a fleet of 33 vehicles in 30 major cities located in the United States and United Kingdom. The first Treasure Truck was released in Amazon's hometown of Seattle in June 2015.[2] The trucks offer one item that changes daily which customers order using the Amazon app and come to a designated pick-up spot.[3] As part of a holiday promotion, Seattle Seahawks player Marshawn Lynch drove the Treasure Truck around Seattle in December 2016 selling a limited-edition beast-mode Echo.[4] In December 2017, two cities in the United Kingdom became the first international locations for the Treasure Truck program.[5] The art on each of the trucks is unique and hand-drawn by Kyler Martz.[6] Each Treasure Truck is active 3 to 4 days per month.[7]
