Amazon’s Treasure Truck is refueling today — on caffeine — as pickups in the Seattle area are taking place inside select Starbucks locations.

Monday’s deal on the roaming truck is for a Kasa Kam, an indoor security camera from TP-Link. The camera is priced at $71.50 — a 30-percent savings.

Four Starbucks locations are taking part in the promotion — two in downtown Seattle, one in the Ballard neighborhood and one across Lake Washington in Bellevue. The hours and exact locations are specified on the map below.

“All of today’s pickup locations are inside select Starbucks locations, so you can pick up your security cam while you grab your afternoon coffee,” Amazon said on the Treasure Truck website for Seattle. “So convenient! Plus, you’ll get a voucher to get your favorite grande drink, for the price of a tall (at that location, today only)!”

An Amazon spokesperson confirmed to GeekWire that it was “trying something new” by adding the pickup locations at Starbucks. The Treasure Truck has previously teamed with various types of local businesses — banks, office parks, shopping centers, Whole Foods Market, etc. — in each of the 25 cities where it operates to offer customers convenient pickup spots.

For its part, Starbucks has teamed with Amazon previously. The coffee giant announced last year that it was integrating the ability to order coffee via Amazon’s Alexa voice assistant in certain Ford vehicles.

Starbucks has also joined forces with Alibaba, the Chinese e-commerce giant. Earlier this month, Starbucks announced that it will integrate its online store and customer rewards program with Alibaba’s popular apps and online services, used by more than 500 million people in China. It was also launching a new delivery service from more than 2,000 Starbucks stores in China.
