Amazon Could Offer Housekeeping As Its Latest Prime Perk
The retail giant is experimenting with new services in the Seattle area, perhaps to build a larger system in the future
Amazon Prime? More like Amazon Primp. That’s right, after years of selling products to keep your home clean, Amazon may soon actually offer workers to help you with housekeeping.
Two job postings, first spotted by The Seattle Times, reveal that the company is looking for “Home Assistants” who work to tidy up around the home, do laundry, and help put groceries and essentials like toilet paper and paper towels away.
As the listing was only for two positions, it's most likely an experiment to test whether such a system could function on a larger scale. If all goes smoothly, booking a housekeeper could be as simple as clicking a button, just like Prime's other perks such as film streaming and two-day shipping.
