This is serious, Amazon CEO revealed this on 60 minutes and this is coming in the next 5 or 6 years. Would you have your coins shipped this way?

The surcharge would have to be phenomenal. And, with these things flying about, I can only imagine the number of phone calls to the police about shotguns going off in the neighborhood! :l

I thought the same thing, people are going to shoot them down or be calling about UFOs. I still think it's a good idea but the cost and logistics could be a problem.

The thing about Prime is it's a membership and you get free shipping. It cost me $7.99 a month and I can even watch free instant videos, plus other discounts. I think Amazon can pull this off, at least in suburban areas, no way this would work with apartment complexes.

I live 60 minutes from one of their warehouses so it would work for me and in my area.

I think it is people with too much time on their hands in the think tank.
