I don't remember signing up for anything special, but I always get an email when an item is delivered. It includes a picture of the item on my doorstep.

-- sorry, I just noticed that you said text alert.

Thanks for the reply, but I don't see that tab on the website. I wonder if it's only for the app?

I see it, you might go to your account page and hit command-f to find it. I wasn't going to read through the dozens of links on that page.

Gareth's link is good on macOS.

Cmd-F for Communications and scroll down in the box.






I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

My front door cam sends me a msg when the delivery guy walks up.

My wife was sitting by the kitchen window with a view of the front door this afternoon. She saw the Amazon delivery person attempt to throw a package 20 feet to the front step. No need for a text alert. She heard the package hit the ground with a boom. LOL

Oh, that would pi$$ me off big time. I hope she/you let Amazon know.

Luckily it was a 6-foot pepperoni pizza fleece blanket, so there was no damage, but there could've been a MacMini in there. He wouldn't have known. Usually when I'm expecting anything of value being delivered, I open the window a crack so I can hear the truck pullup to the curb. I open the door and give the driver a nod so he knows, that I know, that he knows I'm watching.

I get both texts and emails. In fact, I'm signed up for every sort of notification for every delivery service: ups, fed-ex, usps, Amazon. Nothing hits my doorstep that I am not notified instantly.

It was a desktop-only thing. I'm back at my Mini and can now see it. Thanks, folks.

We went to Costco to buy a new KitchenAid mixer yesterday and they were out of stock. I brought it up online and was about to buy it and then I had a vision of our UPS driver just tossing a 30 lb package to the ground and decided not to buy but to just wait a couple of weeks until they get them back in stock. When we got home today I found a package from Kohl's with various kitchen devices in it on its side and with dented sides and corners by the garage after a UPS delivery. Who knows exactly how it got that way but I'm glad we didn't buy the KitchenAid.

Change your amazon email to your cellphones email to text address.
