You can order almost anything via Amazon Prime — and housekeeping just might be next.

The Seattle Times is reporting that Amazon has posted openings on Amazon Assistants, a concierge service described as "experts in helping Amazon customers keep up their home," to a local job board. The home assistants would be charged with "tidying up around the home, laundry, and helping put groceries and essentials like toilet paper and paper towels away," with the goal of helping members achieve an "errand-free" home. While that's all that's known about the service at the moment, it's likely a local experiment, as the job posting was solely for two positions.

Amazon Prime has been steadily adding perks to the $99 per year program, which already includes free 2-day shipping, streaming video and music, and as of October, free books and magazines.
