They just leave your stuff on your doorstep in America?? That is the stupidest thing I've ever seen.
Jimmy Moonshine (3 months ago)
Do you mean...and that's how a lot of package thieves are going to get a lot of holiday gifts. OH LOOK, a bag that show's headphones, laptop, camera, and bacon on it...really smart amazon prime. There is way too much advertisement on that bag to be considered safe to leave on someone's porch. Even billionaires struggle to have common sense nowadays, smh!
CubsFan12 (4 days ago)
Well if you happen to be at work I'm sure you can have it delivered there.
Samuel Belay (17 days ago)
I'm a delivery driver and 90% of prime now deliveries are attended deliveries meaning the package can never be left unattended at the door unless the customer requested
Chris Gayler (19 days ago)
Your wrong if your package is coming within a few hours and you ordered a laptop why would you not be home? so i don`t think you understand the video. Now if someone did order a package and was not home i think it will go back to outlet and charge you a restocking fee.

Says a guy who is on YouTube watching how people order items online.. you haven’t got it all figured out after all.

Why do you have to smile and giggle over the stupidest things instead of talking more about substance? If it was original or funny there would be reason to.

Who orders food from amazon? why would you wait for granola bars, when you can go to the store and get it in 10 minutes
Russle (1 month ago)
10 minutes wtf? 15 minutes to drive, 5 minutes for parking, walk to the store, 15 minutes looking for the item and getting it to the cash register, 20 minutes waiting in line, 15 minute drive back. 10 minutes my ass im ordering on amazon

Ka Gala (5 months ago)
Oh, really? I placed an order via Amazon Prime to deliver to PR - this is AFTER the hurricane, after over a week that it happened. They take almost a month to deliver it, then don't deliver to the address when it finally arrives while forgetting to leave a slip in the mailbox so that we can at least know the box is there, then manage to return the box back to Kentucky in 2 days. 1 month to deliver, 2 to return with no notification. My father would have picked it up wherever needed, had he been INFORMED the box had arrived and was simply undeliverable to his exact location. They have this, drones & all types of supposed great service, but can't deliver a simple box in an area that needs it. Nice to know.

Mr. Zero (5 months ago)
I was ordering a lot from Prime Now when I was back at school in LA. It was pretty dope and the prices were as good if not better than all the grocery options around me. Only thing not delivered was meat, seafood, and produce. But I did order Ben and Jerry's ice cream and gelato. I didn't have to wait in shitty lines or go out of my apartment and risk an accident or become victim of a terrorist attack. I wished I ordered some La Croix.

What kind of transportation was used to get the order to your place? Would have loved to see that in the video too.

Okay, hold up. When they were showing the dude scanning stuff - there was Pabst Blue Ribbon on the shelf. Which brings up the most important question... where do I need to move to in order to have beer delivered to me within two hours?

Russ Aman (3 months ago)
NEPTUNE SILVER lol lucky you i have amazon prime 10 days free shipping. sometimes i wonder where my stuff are coming from shit i live like 5 mins from the fulfillment center. maybe my packages are sent from a fulfillment center from a different planet that’s why it takes 10days to nearly a month to receive my stuff. when it arrives it’s delivered to a wrong address so i call for a refund and they say do you mind waiting 1 more day and see if it arrives. shit i’ve been waiting for at least 10 days

I'm also living too far away from the big cities to profit from these kinds of offers but you can't deny that even now there are already MILLIONS of people who can be served that way.

Edwardo Hambel nope . That's why I call bullshit. Plus if people notice , she lives in same area the facility at lmao. Of course they can deliver in under a hour to her .
