Amazon is teasing plans to expand its Treasure Truck to more U.S. cities, a year-and-a-half after debuting the roving flash sales-mobile in its hometown of Seattle.
The company announced on the Treasure Truck site this morning that the vehicle will be “revving up and rolling out in select cities” soon. Amazon says more details on the scope and specifics of the expansion will be announced later this month. The company is promoting the rollout with this video.
“Where’s your map?” a band of luckless pirates ask when they spot an Amazon customer holding bounty from the Treasure Truck. “It’s not a map,” she says. “It’s the Amazon app.”
Amazon rolled out the Treasure Truck in Seattle in February 2016. The mobile retail unit offers one discounted item at a time, selling everything from Dungeness Crab to GoPros. Customers can get notifications via the Amazon app when the truck is going to be nearby.
So far, the Treasure Truck has stayed close to home with the exception of a Vegas vacay for the Consumer Electronics Show. GeekWire spotted the truck at CES in January and speculated that its first foray away from home could signal a broader expansion.
Today, Amazon confirmed that the Treasure Truck will indeed be coming to cities across the U.S. but provided scant details beyond that. You can sign up for notifications about when the Treasure Truck is headed your way by following these instructions.
