I'd never heard of this until I saw a link on another forum... the idea is that you have a special lock that allows Amazon delivery folk to open your front door and leave your order inside. Assuming they have reported it accurately, this article seems to sum up the response any sane person should give to the idea.

They're getting lots of free Ads on the news here for that, of course no mention of ny drawbacks at all, only accolades. :(

I wonder how long before you don't even need to live there, Amazon will just check you refrigerator, shelves, dealers, throw out the old stuff & order/send you the latest greatest without ny control by you?

I don't even give a door key to my Mother so why the hell would I give one to Amazon?

Not a chance I will use that service.

If I couldn't have packages delivered to work, not only would I definitely use this service, but I would also buy more from Amazon.

There is always delivery to a pickup point. Or a friendly neighbour.
