Amazon Prime Air drone sitting on launch pad

Amazon is taking things to the next level with drone air delivery!

Amazon Prime shoppers are always looking for services to make their life more convenient – and Amazon continues to deliver. From increasing their shipping speeds to one-day and no longer requiring minimum purchases for add-on items, Amazon keeps upping the ante.

What’s up their sleeves now? Amazon just announced at their re:MARS Conference in Las Vegas that their latest Prime Air drone can safely fly up to 15 miles and deliver packages under five pounds to your door in less than 30 minutes. 😱

According to the Amazon’s Prime Air website, the company believes that Prime Air will provide rapid parcel delivery to millions of customers while increasing safety and efficiency, since fewer on-the-road delivery vehicles may be needed.

When, exactly, will Amazon drone delivery be available for Prime members?

It’s still up in the air. But, with the help of Amazon’s world-class fulfillment and delivery network, they expect to scale Prime Air both quickly and efficiently, delivering packages via drone to customers within months. Wow!

Would YOU use Prime Air delivery?

Starting this summer, you can return your Amazon orders at Kohl’s!

    If this raises the cost of Prine, I am probably dropping the subscription. Occassionally, it would be nice for 30 minute delivery. However, most of the time I can wait a day (or two) for my stuff. We have been considering letting prime lapse anyway so they may just be about to push us over the edge.

    • Jenn

      I agree.

      • J.H.509

        I agree as well

  2. Holli

    I will just to see it come. Lol

  3. Court

    Awesome!! Probably not in all cities tho

  4. Nancy

    I would order at least once just for the drone service experience . We have a fulfillment center five miles away.

  5. Mindy

    This sounds ridiculous to me. Does this mean I am going to have to listen to the sound of drones flying over my house constantly? No thanks.

    • valerie

      Drones are pretty quite so you wont be hearing them for sure.

  6. Shirley

    No thanks. I don’t want to see a drone in my neighborhood.

    • Sassy99

      Agreed !!! That could cause dogs to bark constantly, and just no thanks

      • KM

        Dogs already bark constantly with all the delivery trucks!

    “world-class fulfillment and delivery network”

    Will people “accidently” shoot these down?

    • Dana

      Oh snap lol

    I remember saying once that I would never stream music because I prefer CDs. Now, I stream music even when I’m in the car. My point is drone delivery will probably become the norm just like so many other things that have changed over the years. It’ll be interesting to see how and if it all works out as amazon has planned.

    I’d definitely try it if it delivered near me. I love how they’re thinking outside the box!

  11. Nicole

    Oh man. This COULD be good, however, shared scooters WERE also thought to be a great idea…however city streets are now “littered” with these things and accidents galore happen. They drive me crazy and I imagine drones to roll out in a similar fashion. In theory they are definitely cool, but reality….hmmm. I definitely can wait a day if it means I don’t have drones flying all over my neighborhood.

  12. KM

    Would the current weather change delivery time I wonder

  13. Stacey

    I normally opt for the later day delivery just because, however I could have used something sooner this week and they couldn’t get it here in one day. It said sorry we normally can, ect. This is just ridiculous to me to say in 30 minutes with a drone.

  14. Crystal

    Can you imagine how many people will loose their jobs because of drones now delivering packages?

    • 🌺 Nolee 🌺

      Someone will have to “pilot” them.

      • Lunafalls

        It will probably be more like programming them, but yes they will need some human support for sure.

  15. Beth

    Me: When I ordered this item it said guaranteed delivery June 6. Why does it now say that I won’t have it until Monday?
    Amazon: Your item is on track to be delivered Monday as promised.
    Me: No, you promised today.
    Amazon: Well it wasn’t available at the closest facility so it’s on track to be delivered Monday as promised.
    Amazon: Can you wait until Monday?

    This was my exact conversation with an Amazon representative earlier today…so…excuse me if I’m skeptical about ANYTHING they promise. And they didn’t offer me anything to make it better, either.

    • jenn

      Haha yes, I’ve had a few of these conversations!

    I live in Florida and I can see our rain/storms during the summer being a problem for these drones and our packages. I can.see accidents from drivers looking at these drones being a problem. I personally can do without them. I’m a prime member and I get 2 to 3 boxes delivered DAILY but never needed anything delivered in 30 minutes. Just don’t see the need. Can’t justify paying more than we are right now for the membership due to these drones. I’ve considered canceling my membership and ordering from Target and Walmart instead. If Amazon raises their prices again, I’m done with them.

  17. Ashley

    Jesus is coming soon.

  18. Luna

    Interesting! Can’t wait to get the experience

  19. Dawn

    At this point, I would happily have drones over all of these lazy delivery drivers. If ups, usps, or fedex are assigned to my packages, I get them. If it is an independent delivery driver for Amazon, I have about a 25% chance of receiving my package at all. I have watched them on the map near my neighborhood and “you are next.” Then they leave the area. Then I get a message that they could not access my locked gate or the package was damaged. I have no gate. After 30+ phone calls to Amazon logistics and numerous chats, I am THIS CLOSE to cancelling my account all together.
