Have heard about the latest in shopping innovation? The new AmazonCart service by Amazon allows users to shop while on the go by simply using Twitter. #AmazonCart gives shoppers a unique opportunity to use Twitter as a search engine; finding items to purchase without leaving your Twitter feed!
Here’s how it works. Follow @Amazon (or any of the other amazing Amazon twitter accounts FOUND HERE) and keep an eye out for tweets showcasing the latest deals in fashion, technology, home goods and more. Once you’ve spotted a tweet with an item you want to buy, simply respond to the tweet using #AmazonCart and it’ll be instantly added to your Amazon or Amazon Prime account. As if you needed another reason to shop, the #AmazonCart program takes impulse shopping to a whole new level.
Recently, I used #AmazonCart for some not-so-impulsive shopping. I’ve had my eye out on buying new luggage for a few months now and using my Amazon Prime account (with free 2nd day shipping) was the perfect opportunity to put my #AmazonCart to work.
Low and behold, after a few simple replies on Twitter – I found that I had more than just a suitcase in my Amazon checkout cart. Amazon tends to tweet out some pretty amazing deals and with “one-tweet-shopping” keeping an empty checkout cart makes buying these deals hard to resist. Before I knew it, I had to tame the impulse shopping beast within and with the click of a checkout button, my shopping was complete!
