Amazon Alexa Driver special thanks message

Amazon wants to help you say Thank You… AGAIN!

UPDATE: This promotion has concluded. You can continue to thank your drivers and they will share your appreciation. 

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), Alexa, or Amazon Shopping mobile apps and say “Alexa, thank my driver”. You can even type in “Thank my Driver” in the search bar on Amazon’s home page to participate!

Not only will your driver receive a message that you sent your thanks, but the first TWO million messages sent will also give the driver an extra $5!

    I love this promotion I still thank my Amazon driver all year long through my Alexa even though they don’t get any money I definitely think that they should be recognized They work hard, and there are a lot of deliveries daily

    • Christina

      Same! I never know if they get anything for it but we’re very appreciative of them.

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Happy Tuesday, Monique! 🤗 So sweet of you to thank your drivers throughout the year – I agree they work hard. Hoping they receive all that positive feedback! 🤞❤️

      • Monique

        Hello 👋 my favorite hipster 🙂 hope you’re having a great day!

        • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

    Hate to be a Debbie Downer & this is just what I heard from my driver… I asked him about a month ago randomly, what happens when I thank my driver. He said ‘Not a damn thing’. Not only do they not get recognition like we are lead to believe but they never hear anything about it Period. Not sure if he was just over exaggerating or what but I did feel bad. Sadly (and this is my opinion not anyone elses ) but i fully believe it.

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks so much for letting us know your thoughts on this, cindylouwhooo. It seems that the “Thank my Driver” option is a feature that may be available year-round; however, the $5 promotion seems to have just returned, according to this article. Hoping that your driver is able to receive those! 🤞❤️

    If you don’t have an alexa you can also just search “thank my driver” in the Amazon app to do so

    • Beverly

      Thanks! I don’t have an Alexa, and was wondering if I could still do this.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for that helpful reminder! 🙌❤️

    @Samievs thank you, found it and sent it didn’t know about it.

    I’m a contract driver (use my own vehicle) and we have badges. the Alexa thank my driver is there. I have received a $5 reward yet. and the other badges don’t really get us anything…just shows amazon we are making customers happy.

  7. Adam

    Until they start teaching delivery people how an order is packaged, I can’t thank them. A delivery should not be left on a side that there is no way that the package could have been filled & taped. Several of the drivers have confirmed they were never told this, and was like a light bulb went off when the ones that cared to receive feedback listened to this.

    so how does this work, I had an Amazon delivery on Monday, if I ask Alexa today, will they still get it

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      I believe so! Let us know how it works for you! 🤗💞
