Our Verdict

Need myQ to be able to do this, obviously there are issues with giving Amazon access to your garage like this so up to you to decide whether it’s worth the trade off of the credit and not having packages stolen. I think I’d probably be OK with it, but not sure I’d want to effectively be a beta tester for the service.

I think the cops might have a PRIME suspect in the case…. HAHAHA

Edit: I wish this was Reddit – I would have got at least 10 upvotes. 🙂

You can supply the cops here in Chicago with videos of the criminals in action, and all they will do is only take a report. It’s safe to say that in some parts of the USA, crime DOES pay! YMMV

“While Supplies Last”
What idiots write these things?

Gadget

Standard boilerplate meaning they can shut this crap down anytime they see fit.

Do they plan to run out of garages to give, I wonder?

Gadget

They might to run out of coopins, as Ron White would say. Old school terminology for an always connected, online 24/7, world.

Better for most people than the ‘let them in your front door’ version, I’d think.

Somewhat agree. There is also the pop open my car version. Plus, some people would be happy if the Amazon guy cleaned out the garage.

Promotions like this get people thinking on what the Jones’s have. I had never heard of MyQ before tonight. The actual controller is on sale for only $50 at Amz and BestBuy… woo-hoo. However, I am taking a pass.

I’m sorry, but you have to be a real idiot to give some random Amazon delivery driver access to your home. Especially for $10! You could offer me a month’s worth of pay and I’d still say no.

Access to your garage doesn’t necessarily mean access to your home. You can lock the door from your garage to your house if it’s attached and some people have detached garages. Still not worth it IMHO.

For some of these privacy abuses, it’s just the principle behind it. There’s really no good reason to give someone $10 to open up their garage. These types of privacy infringement payoffs need to be outlawed, and quickly.

If someone is so paranoid about a delivery getting stolen off of their porch, than wouldn’t they be more paranoid about giving some random delivery driver access to any portion of their home?

Offering someone $10 to do stupid stuff stinks to high heaven. If someone trusts big brother enough to give out access to their house, they certainly don’t need to be paid to do it.

How about a service that works for 100% of people: when ordering, allow the customer to select a specific day and time-frame to receive delivery, since the customer can then arrange for someone to be home.

I live in the city on a secondary street so busy but not crazy. In 10 years at my address I have had 2 stolen packages (only one of which was from amazon). Additionally, even if your amazon packages are stolen it’s not like you lose any money, they just sent you a replacement. I just don’t see why anyone would sign up for this. They aren’t even offering to cover the cost of the adapter most people will need.

For those who are insecure about this (Based on the comments, 99.9% I guess) just put a security camera (and a motion sensing alarm that would trigger if they took two steps more than they need to) in your garage. These are real cheap if you are even a basic DIYer. Be it the driver during day or night you can catch him/her if they attempt anything funny.
For me this is a good option that I would use when a package is being delivered when I am away for more than a day and/or when there is rain/snow/wind that could otherwise damage an electronics item.
