They just leave your stuff on your doorstep in America?? That is the stupidest thing I've ever seen.

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!

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

Maybe you're too lazy to go to the store and can wait an hour.

It does NOT cost 7.99 for hour delivery! The cheapest I got charged was 25.00 + a tip.

Ice cream emergencies? People have become very lazy and self-important to expect so much convenience and immediate gratification.

+Grungiestbeast -- you never know... that could have been stuff that MacGyver (or MacGruber) needed to fend off an invasion of gun-toting cobras! Thanks for that -- hard to get that image of those two silly items out of my head.

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.

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.
Ivan Kay (4 months ago)
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?

Probably because it was the easiest thing on the shelf to reference to when asked questions on the spot.

Russ Aman (26 days 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

guscles25 (11 months ago)
wait they delivered your items to some sort of apartment/company building and just left the bags outside???? This is not cool... someone will definitely steal these from the front.... you'll have to be literally waiting for them outside.
poker108 (8 months ago)
guscles25 I deliver for amazon . we aren't allowed to leave the packages in the front of apartments like that specially wit alot of traffic facing the road. u either drop them off at the leasing office or find a place to hide it.if no safe place or any1 to accept the packages then u gotta drive it back to the warehouse which is a bitch .

All was staged. There is no way they actually left it there.

This is all fun and games UNTIL the business model takes off. As soon as it takes off ROBOTS will fulfill all orders including DRONE delivery. This means we will put how many thousands of people out of a job?

djmaster1995 (11 months ago)
Haha, what a contrast. You are afraid they are losing the jobs but you say they are miserable working at Amazon. Which one do you want? Obviously if a machine can do your job at this point, you probably wont like the job.
poker108 (1 year ago)
ArtisannasitrA it's already happening.the workers seem so miserable at amazon
