Through Amazon deliveries, "Open the Frontdoor" is being brought to millions of American homeowners through July
MEMPHIS, Tenn., June 22, 2023--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Frontdoor, Inc. (NASDAQ: FTDR), the nation’s leading provider of home service plans with about two million members, today announced an arrangement with Amazon where packages in Frontdoor branding are being delivered to front doors across the nation until the end of July (or until supplies last).
"This is an innovative way to expose millions of homeowners to the Frontdoor app," said Kathy Collins, Frontdoor’s chief brand officer. "Amazon is the biggest name in e-commerce with millions of deliveries each month, and now people are opening their front door to see a beautifully branded package with Frontdoor messaging. As part of our arrangement, we are offering Amazon customers 50 percent off our Frontdoor Prime membership, making it just $49 a year."
Powered by Frontdoor’s proprietary Streem video technology, the Frontdoor app is the ultimate tech solution to help homeowners tackle home repair and maintenance tasks with ease and convenience. Addressing a wide range of issues, including running toilets or glitchy washing machines, homeowners can use the app to video chat with Frontdoor Experts in plumbing, heating and air conditioning (HVAC), electrical, appliances and a handyman category. If the Experts aren’t able to fix the issue remotely, the app can provide a list of trusted and local Pros (professional contractors) who can make the necessary repairs.
"The Frontdoor app has been downloaded over 580,000 times since we launched it on April 11. Now we’re going to bring the app to even more homeowners through Amazon deliveries," Collins said.
