They use the credit cards without the client's permission, beware of the gift checks they suck. I see some very big scams and commit the crime of using the cards without notifying the client. I have my case in which they asked for things with a cheaue gift of 40 euros, they used it and they gave me 0, I spent about 32 euros, to my surprise is that afterwards in the credit card they stole 37 euros, claiming that it happened to me in the gift voucher (they gave me 32 euros) and they told me that I had spent 37 euros with the porters and since they had the card they charged it without telling me, saying that it was active. Who can use the cards without notifying first? to the client? This is a crime. DO NOT BUY ANYTHING IN AMAZON there are cheaper places without intermediaries like them.

Is there a minimum amount that must be ordered for Prime Now delivery?

I work at a Amazon prime here in Texas. I ask him about a raise within a year for the company. He told me there is no raises or benefits for this Amazon prime. Which is bullcrap I wish there was a union for Amazon. Hopefully in the future they will be.

This was a lifesaver for me in NYC, especially, after experiencing a heart attack and surgery. Now in Texas, I only wish I had the service at my new location- At least, I can still have the Prime Whole Foods delivered right to my door- wonderful service! Thank you!

Wish it would've been more very specific in tracking the items. Like if there would've been a timer going from when it was ordered until it was being delivered on the door.

HORSESHIT! Every time I get my order, the bags are overfilled and bandaged together with a ton of white tape! Consistently overfilled bags. The FRESH packages are worse! By the time they get to your house, the food is all warm and hanging by a thread from those cheap paper bags. Those workers look depressed too. lol

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!

that is a risk that you take with anything bought online. do you really think amazon wouldn't refund or send out a replacement for something out of your control ? i live in the city and i've never had anything stolen off my stoop. but i have had items damaged/broken three times upon arrival. 0 issues with getting a refund and replacement respectively on the items. the 1 item, the driver took the item right back after we both saw it was damaged. he even suggested it. amazon even provides a space to leave very specific delivery instructions (like keycode) should you still feel uncomfortable. there are safety nets in place within amazon's business structure, it's up to you to actually utilize them. or you can just live in fear of having a replaceable and/or refundable package stolen.

If you have the cash for it you can get one of those smart locks on your door from amazon which if you give them permission they can leave your package inside your house.

So what your telling everyone is that just because it’s in a brown bag and not a shipping box or shipping envelopes it is more likely to get taken 🤨
