Last year Amazon introduced Key In-Home delivery which allowed Prime deliveries directly into your home. On Tuesday they launched Key In-Car, a new service that allows couriers to deliver packages directly into the trunk of your vehicle.
The new service is free for Prime members in 37 cities in the US driving a 2015 or newer Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, Cadillac, or Volvo with OnStar or Volvo On Call.
How it works
To get started download the free Amazon Key app from the App Store or Google Play. Then select the in-car delivery option on your next Amazon order.
After that it’s pretty simple, just park your car in a publicly accessible parking space within two blocks of your delivery address. You’ll get a notification when the package has been dropped off and your car is relocked. Viola, package delivered!
Amazon stresses that it will authorize the delivery driver before your car is unlocked. And no special access or keys are given to the driver.
So you shouldn’t have to worry about a random driver just taking off with your car.
Key In-Car delivery is a great idea especially if you spend a lot of time away from home. It also means you don’t have to go home to get your package. And it’s certainly less invasive than the Key in-home delivery option.

Hahaha. Like I’d trust Amazon to go into my car or my house with their new house service.
