5 Things You Should Know About Amazon Lockers

If you’ve ever worried about a package sitting on your porch while you’re not home (which is most, if not all of you), Amazon Hub Locker is the answer to your cries. Amazon Lockers have been around for years, and they’re all over the country now so you’ll probably find one within a 10 mile radius, unless you live way out in the country.

Read on for everything you’ll want to know about the lockers, plus tips to save time and money.


1. How does Amazon Hub Locker work?

It’s just two tweaks to your normal Amazon experience. You’ll shop Amazon like usual and then instead of selecting your address, select a locker closest to you where you can pick up your items. When you’re ready, go to the locker location, enter the six-digit code you receive in your shipping confirmation, and pick up your Prime purchase.

Find an Amazon Hub Locker near me.


2. How much does it cost to use Amazon Locker?

Think of it just like Free Prime Shipping, except instead of landing on your doorstep, your purchase will go to an Amazon Locker and wait for you.

If you’re not a Prime member, you can still use Amazon Hub Lockers. You’ll pay shipping in the same way you’d pay it to have an Amazon package shipped to your home.

You’ll have three days to pick it up, and you can do so anytime the store your Locker is at is open — evenings, weekends, whenever!



3. Are there size limits I should know about?

Two things will make a Prime shipment ineligible for shipping to an Amazon Locker.

First, weight. Your item must weigh less than 10 pounds. Next, dimensions — it must be smaller than 16 x 12 x 14 inches.

But, as long as it’s not insanely valuable jewelry (can’t exceed $5,000 in value) or hazardous materials, you should be fine.


4. Return any Amazon purchase to a Hub Locker instead of shipping it back.

Initiate your return on Amazon, and if there’s availability in a Locker for your return, you’ll receive a code to enter, on location. Enter the code and leave your package. Voila!


5. Not a Prime member? Sign up for Prime in mid-November to use free Lockers during the holidays.

If you haven’t signed up for Amazon Prime yet, wait to do so until about a month before Christmas. Here’s why:

When you sign up for Prime, you get a free 30-day trial. Use it to do your Christmas shopping, and have all your Amazon Christmas orders shipped to a Locker for security.
