That was fast: Amazon’s ‘Alexa thank my driver’ tip program is over

Each night, before I go to bed, I ask the Alexa-enabled Lenovo nightstand clock what the weather will be like. Last night, right after dutifully announcing the weirdly balmy weather, Alexa informed me that I could tip my Amazon driver $5 by saying, “Alexa, thank my driver.”

There are currently about 275,000 Amazon drivers (opens in new tab) delivering more than a billion (opens in new tab) holiday gift-carrying boxes, and making holiday dreams come true for consumers and, of course, Amazon. But what do drivers who carefully place these precious boxes at our doorsteps get out of it? Other than roughly $20 an hour, not much. Giving one of my drivers a tiny tip seemed like the least I could do.
