The e-commerce giant is giving away free tickets to the music and arts festival known as Coachella. One winner will receive two VIP passes to the festival, as well as a $US3,000 Visa gift card to cover travel and accommodations.
The estimated value of the whole package is $US4,998, Amazon says. The annual music and arts festival takes place from April 12 to 14, and April 19 to 21 in California.
To enter, Amazon is asking for a social media post on either Twitter or Instagram. Post a photo “showing you with an Amazon Locker” and use the hashtags #AmazonLocker, #Coachella2019 and #Giveaway. Users can also submit with just the hashtags on Twitter, and no photo.
Amazon is going all out on marketing for this year’s Coachella. It’s created an entire shop just for items that Coachella goers might like to purchase, like sunscreen, feather earrings, or Pedialyte, and have sent to the on-site Amazon Locker. Users can order ahead to have it sent to the locker, or order on festival days for pickup during the festival. Orders placed by 12 noon on the days of the festival will be available for pickup that same day.
“We want customers to make the most out of their weekend at Coachella,” said Patrick Supanc, Amazon’s Worldwide Director of Lockers and Pickup, in a statement. “Bringing the convenience of Amazon Lockers to Coachella will help customers focus on their experience instead of worrying about forgetting something at home or having to carry it in with them.”
Amazon also worked with Vanessa Hudgens to curate a small collection of items available to be sent to the lockers.
Amazon Lockers work just like sending an item to a regular address, but will wait there until customers are ready to pick it up for a limited time. Customers use a barcode that the locker scans to open.
