Amazon Tries Mobile Flash Sales

Amazon has no intention of stopping their innovative sales ideas. I am imagining the Echos, soon to be announcing sales on your very street.   Will this link Amazon yet closer to the consumer?

Has Amazon created another high-draw shopping model with its Treasure Trucks?   by Laura Davis-Taylor

This past Saturday, Amazon.com stealthily launched a flash sale in Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Houston and Los Angeles using its only once-before-seen Treasure Trucks.

Touted as “an ice cream truck for grown-ups,” the engagement model, which was tested in Seattle before being rolled out to new markets this weekend, is unique and intriguing. The truck drives around town with a single “amazing deal” and, when it’s going to be in your area, you get a text on your phone. If interested, you click to buy on your app, pick one of the trucks as your pickup point and get over there — fast.
