Amazon wants to help you say Thank You… AGAIN!

Just received an Amazon package? It’s a great time to say Thank You to your delivery driver! Just grab any Alexa-enabled device (Echo, Echo Show) or the Alexa or Amazon Shopping mobile apps and say ‘Alexa, thank my driver’. Not only will your driver receive a message that you sent your thanks, but the first million messages sent will also give the driver an extra $5!

Amazon offered this promotion on December 8th and hit their million messages mark in just ONE day! 🙌 They are extending the promotion for an additional million messages starting today, December 21st, so make sure to thank your driver before this offer ends again!

We were so excited about this that we even created an Instagram video here!

Plus, the top five drivers who receive the most thank you messages from customers will receive a whopping $10,000 for themselves and be able to select a charity to receive $10,000! You can head here to learn more about the promotion.

This is such an easy and unique way to say thanks, and it doesn’t cost you a dime!


Thank all of your delivery drivers with this printable!

    Thanks! I just received a delivery, I pushed the Alexa feature in the Amazon app and said it there and they confirmed that the delivery driver would receive the bonus.

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re welcome, Ashley! So glad this was easy for you and you were able to do it in the app! 🎉❤️

    • Taryn

      Where is the Alexa feature? I just came to comments to see if there was away to tip them without Alexa. And the first comment answered my question! Thanks:)

      • Anna

        You could get the Alexa app and it should work

      • Carolyn

        You can click the little Alexa microphone in the Amazon app. In iPhone it’s on the bottom right. You have to enable microphone access

  2. Joanna

    I just tried and Alexa said thank you but “you are not able to tip your driver” lol

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh darn! Thanks for letting us know how it worked for you, Joanna! 💕

    • Ashley

      Did you say “Alexa, thank my driver” ?

    • LWilliams

      Was it USPS or UPS? It only works for Amazon deliveries.

  3. tan

    Thanks just got a pkg today and was able to do the Alexa thing through the Amazon shopping app!

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      WOOHOO! You’re welcome, tan! Glad you were able to easily send this to your delivery driver today! ❤️

  4. Katy

    This is wonderful! I received a delivery today and was able to use my app to ‘tip’ my delivery driver. What a wonderful promotion for the drivers!

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      It sure is, Katy! 🎉 I’m sure your driver appreciates the tip! ❤️

  5. Debbie

    This is awesome!! I love this idea!!! 🥰

  6. Amanda7141

    Oh wow, this is so nice and fun! I will definitely do this! Thanks for letting everyone know!

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re so welcome! 🤗💓

  7. Amber

    I just did it and it said my driver will get $5. This is great!

  8. Shari

    Isn’t Amazon getting sued over taking tips from their workers?

    • Rachel

      Yes. The DC Attorney General just filed suit against Amazon alleging they took tips and used the money to pay wages in the Amazon Flex program. “Alexa, thank my driver” seems like a different promotion.

  9. allyushka

    Worked! Just used the Alexa app and was able to thank our driver (we’ve had a few over the last couple of days lol)

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Sweet! So happy it worked well for you! Also – I feel ya on the multiple drivers/deliveries! 😉❤️

  12. ShellyShel

    I was able to do this on Amazon app… just got two packages delivered!

    • rebecca

      thank you for letting me know i could do this through the app. it was very easy!
      if anyone is looking– on the home screen in app, there is a little blue and white speech bubble in the lower right corner that enables you to ask Alexa to thank the driver.

      • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

        Thanks for the helpful tips on where to spot this option in the app, rebecca! 🥰

      • Alyssa

        Rebecca, thank you for the description!

  13. Karen

    This is awesome! Thank you for letting us know.

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re welcome, Karen! 💞

  14. Giant Sis

    I did it in the Amazon app and it said it would give it to my driver! And the delivery was on Sunday! Woohoo!

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      YAY! Thanks for sharing how you were able to thank your driver! 💕

  15. Amy

    Thanks! I just did it, and for my last delivery on Monday 🙂

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re welcome, Amy! 💓

  16. Jane

    Just did it.

  17. Becky

    Suspicious timing with the lawsuit, but it did work for me.

  18. skateman1sgirl

    My Alexa didn’t understand my request lol

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Darn! You might try using your Amazon app, to see if that might work better for you! 🤞💕

  19. Lisa

    This is so exciting! just tried it and it worked. This is wonderful 🙂 I hope we can do something like this with UPS too. They’re pretty good in my neighborhood.

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Awesome! So happy you were able to thank your driver, Lisa! Glad to hear how amazing all your delivery drivers are in your area! 🥰

  20. Michelle

    Hey, Alexa! How about paying my driver a living wage?

  21. Wendy

    I thanked my driver through Alexa. She said she was glad we were happy with the delivery. But not confirmation on a tip.

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Bummer! Thanks for letting us know about the message you received, Wendy!

  22. Tammi

    What if you don’t use alexa?

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Great question, Tammi! You can also thank your driver in the Amazon app! Hope this helps! 💕

  23. Shawna

    I just did this and it worked!

  24. Kathleen

    I tried to “thank my driver” but Alexa said she was unable to thank them at the moment.

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Darn! There may be a lot of traffic on this promotion at the moment. Hoping you’ll be able to thank them in a bit, or you might try through your Amazon app! 🤞❤️

  25. Kim Mitkowski

    Super idea Amazon! Thank you Hip2Save for sharing! Thank you to the best Amazon drivers in Virginia!

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re so welcome, Kim! 📦🎉❤️

  26. Stefanie

    I just tried and Alexa said thank you but “you are not able to tip your driver”

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Bummer! Hoping that you might be able to thank them through the Amazon app or at a later time! 🤞💕

  27. Jen

    Does anyone else find it creepy that they *require* you to use Alexa for this? I used to work at a financial firm who took security very seriously, and they did not recommend using any voice-activated system that would record your likeness (which Amazon does). Love the tip concept (especially around the holidays!), just wish we had an option to select it on our ‘orders’ page.

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Hey Jen! You can also thank your driver using Alexa on the Amazon App by opening the app and tapping on the Alexa button in the bottom right corner of the screen to speak. Once the microphone permissions are enabled, you can tap the Alexa button again and say, “Alexa, Thank My Driver.” You could then go back to your phone settings and turn the microphone permissions off afterward, if you’d like. Hoping this might be helpful! 💕

  28. janene


    I was wondering if there was a way to pre-program the thank you for a delivery in case I am not home when it was delivered

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Hey Janene! I’m not finding any details on being able to program this offer, but readers have had luck thanking their driver at a later time in the day. I also found this in the FAQ of the promotion – “Deliveries are only eligible for this promotion for 14 days after the delivery is made.” Hoping this helps! 💕

  29. Erika Maxwell

    Trying to share this post on FB but it won’t let me. I did however use the Alexa feature in the app and my package that was delivered on the 3rd will tip that driver $5

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      So sorry for the issues, Erika! You might try copying and pasting the URL to this post – into a Facebook post, to see if that does the trick! 🤞 So glad you were able to thank your driver easily on the app! 🤗💕

  30. Jeff Bezos

    Such a good marketing move for Amazon…so it will cost them barely over 5 million to have people sharing this all over social media, make their drivers happy, drive more people to engage with Alexa, increase their good guy image…all for just 5 million bucks?!? Well played Amazon well freakin played

  31. Claudette (Hip Sidekick)

    Thanks for the heads up, Priscilla!❣️

  32. Sarah

    Thanks I was gifted a tv and this seems like a deal!

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re welcome, Sarah! 💕
