Sprint Launches Buy Online, Pick Up at Walgreens with New FedEx Delivery Option

WBA FDX

OVERLAND PARK, Kan., Nov. 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Sprint (NYSE:S) customers have long enjoyed the convenience of shopping online at sprint.com and 1-800-SPRINT-1 and picking up their purchases in Sprint stores. Customers can now buy online at sprint.com or by calling 1-800-SPRINT-1 and pick up at one of more than 7,500 FedEx counters located conveniently inside Walgreens. Seventy-five percent of Americans are concerned about porch piracy, and the majority of online shoppers want alternate delivery options.1 Because more than 78 percent of the U.S. population lives within five miles of a Walgreens, this makes shopping with Sprint more convenient and worry-free than ever. Deliveries are shipped and held at Walgreens for five business days, giving customers the flexibility to pick up on their schedule – early in the morning to late evenings – and in some cases 24 hours a day. Although convenience and security are important all year long, having purchases delivered to Walgreens also eliminates the worry of gifts being discovered on the front porch, thus ruining a holiday surprise.
