Amazon launched a new service for Prime Members called Prime Wardrobe. Users pick three or more items of clothing, and they are added to a box to be delivered to the user’s home with seven days to try them on and free returns for anything they don’t want to keep. The kept items are then charged to the Amazon account, with discounts tied to the amount of items kept from a shipment.

If you're still using Uber, you can now tip your driver without carrying cash. The company's longstanding policy of not allowing a tipping option has been confusing for riders, many of whom assumed that a tip was included, it was not. The update to the app is part of Uber's 180 days of change campaign.
