    amazon not delivering in outer boxes 2nd Feb 18 at 7:35 PM
    The last two deliveries I have had from Amazon didn't come in outer amazon boxes, just the original manufacturer box with the address label and Amazon tape stuck to the outside of it.

    Has anyone else noticed this?

    I am not bothered as the items were for myself so I don't mind if the box gets slightly damaged as long as the contents are ok. However it has put me off buying something for a present. I don't really want to be giving presents where the box is torn as I have had to peel my address label off.

    I had an iron come recently from Amazon with just a sticker on the iron box. Everything else has come packaged in an Amazon box (iron was from Amazon, not marketplace)
