One of the most appealing things about using Amazon over the years has been access to free shipping on many of the items you purchase.

But as the costs associated with delivery continue to rise, Amazon is looking for ways to save money dropping off packages.

And they're willing to pay some customers to do it.

According to The Street, Amazon is sending out $10 discount coupons for orders of $25 or more to an unspecified number of Prime subscribers if they are willing to forego delivery and pick up their packages instead.

The company has set up a series of local package pickup spots, called Amazon Hubs, to save on shipping costs, while improving workflow and efficiency for its deliveries.
