Amazon has a new free benefit for Prime members — and if you try it, you’ll get a $20 credit to use with the online retailer.

In-Garage Delivery now lets you have Amazon Fresh and Whole Foods Market orders delivered to your garage, as you can with all your other Amazon deliveries.

In order to use the new service, you need to be able to open your garage door remotely with the myQ app on a smartphone. If you cannot do so now, you first would have to purchase a myQ Smart Garage Hub — which costs around $30 on Amazon — to use In-Garage Delivery.

Once your garage is properly enabled, Amazon drivers will receive temporary, one-time access to enter. Drivers who make these deliveries also undergo background checks.

Finally, Amazon says you can purchase and install a camera in your garage that will allow you to watch deliveries in real time. Compatible cameras include the Ring Indoor Cam and the Ring Stick Up Cam.

According to Amazon:

“All in-garage deliveries are backed by the Key by Amazon Happiness Guarantee. If an in-garage delivery was not completed to your satisfaction, or your product or property was damaged as a direct result of the delivery, we’ll work with you to correct the problem.”

To see if the new In-Garage Delivery service for groceries is available in your area, go to the Amazon website and type in your ZIP code.

If you’ve never placed an In-Garage Delivery order for groceries before, you can take advantage of Amazon’s current offer for a free $20 credit.

Once your garage is equipped, place an order for groceries from Amazon Fresh or Whole Foods by Aug. 1 and choose “Key Delivery” during checkout to claim the credit. Within 24 hours of when that order is delivered, Amazon will email you a link that you can use to redeem the credit.

The credit can be used on products sold by Amazon, Amazon Fresh and Whole Foods Market.
