Amazon Prime members in the US can now have their packages delivered directly to their garage. Key for Garage is an expansion of the company’s existing Amazon Key service, which already lets Amazon’s drivers deliver packages directly into your home or the trunk of your car. The new service keeps your packages secure, but might make your home more vulnerable.
In order to use the new service, you’ll need a myQ-compatible garage door opener from Chamberlain or LiftMaster. You can check here if your existing garage door is compatible. If it’s nit, then you can buy a myQ Smart Garage Hub to retrofit your existing garage door opener for an introductory price of $50 (regular price $80). You’ll also need an Amazon Prime subscription to use the service.
Key by Amazon now covers a total of 50 cities across the US, thanks to 13 new additions that include Las Vegas, Fresno, and Rochester. Key for Garage is available in every city where Key by Amazon is available.
Amazon is also offering a $10 bonus with your first order that is delivered to your garage. It comes in the form of Amazon credit. This limited time offer is available until May 6, 2019.
- This is a limited time offer and good while supplies last.

- Offer only applies to products sold by Amazon.com or Amazon Digital Services LLC (look for “sold by Amazon.com” or “sold by Amazon Digital Services LLC” on the product detail page).
An easy bonus if you plan to use this service. But if you’re worried about your privacy or the safety of your home, then it’s not worth the risk for $10.
