The e-commerce giant may be looking to help its Prime customers clean house. Here's the dish.

Amazon may be looking to sweeten the pot for its Prime members by offering housekeeping services.

According to The Seattle Times, the e-commerce giant recently posted job listings for “concierge-like ‘home assistants'” on its website.

Although the job posts originally stated that a two-person home assistant team would provide “timesaving assistance to Amazon Prime members,” helping them “keep up their home” — which suggests that the service could be a new perk for Prime members — the specific “Prime” detail was removed from the post after the Times posted its story.

According to the job description, a home assistant would be responsible for “tidying up around the home, laundry, and helping put groceries and essentials like toilet paper and paper towels away” so the Amazon customer can come home to an “errand-free home.”

Seattle-based Amazon already offers housecleaning services through its Home Services program. But it appears that this new housekeeping program would be different because the workers would be employed by Amazon, not another cleaning business.

Amazon Prime is the e-commerce giant’s annual subscription program. It costs $99 per year or $10.99 per month, and a free 30-day trial is available.

Amazon Prime members spend big bucks on Amazon — about $1,100 per person annually, compared to $700 for non-Prime Amazon customers.

Amazon Prime member benefits include:

  • Free two-day shipping with no required purchase minimum
  • Free video streaming, including movies and TV series
  • Free unlimited music streaming
  • Free unlimited photo storage
  • Free e-books through Prime Reading
  • Free access to Audible Channels, a new short-form digital audio service
  • Early access to Amazon Lightning Deals
