If two-day shipping isn’t fast enough, Amazon has opened a one-day shipping pickup location on the University of Pittsburgh campus.

Amazon Prime customers who choose to ship their orders to the [email protected] pickup location can swing by and grab their items the next day.

[email protected] opened Tuesday.

The pickup location is at 209 Oakland Ave. and open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., Monday through Friday and 12 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. The location is open to everyone. You do not have to be a Pitt student to use it.

One-day shipping is free for Amazon Prime members. Orders placed by 10 p.m. will be available the next day. Customers will have to scan a code and retrieve their items from a locker.

Customers can also drop off returns and recycle cardboard boxes. [email protected] can be added as a shipping location by taking by scanning any official Pitt logo using the Amazon app.

Amazon’s Oakland location is the second one-day pickup spot in Pennsylvania. The other is in State College at Penn State. Amazon has a same-day pickup location on the University of Pennsylvania’s campus.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
