How does Amazon pay for free shipping?

Amazon launched a new 'counter' service Thursday at more than 100 Rite-Aide stores.

This new option to get Amazon packages may reduce thefts.

It plans to have more than 1,500 pickup points across the U.S. by the end of the year.

Those who choose the counter pickup option will be sent an email once the package is ready for pickup.

To pickup the package you will need to use a code provided in the email to verify your pickup.
