Time is running out on a deal from Amazon Prime that could help you protect your holiday deliveries and make you some money.

Through Dec. 31, Amazon is offering customers $10 credit if they opt out of home delivery and in for picking up Amazon deliveries at a vetted pickup point near their home. These can be Amazon Hub Counters or Amazon Hub Lockers near where you live, work and shop. It’s a good hedge against porch pirates and their goal of stealing packages off your front porch when you're not home.
