Stars Deliver for Amazon8 Jul, 2005 By: Holly J. Wagner
Amazon.com has announced another promotion for its 10th anniversary: A few lucky fans will get their DVD deliveries from the stars of the movie or show.
Customers randomly selected from those who order between July 7 and July 17 will get surprise deliveries from a favorite actor, musician, athlete or author alongside a UPS driver. Webcasts of the special deliveries will be streamed on Amazon.com.
Among the celebrities scheduled to make special deliveries are actor Harrison Ford, who may deliver the Raiders of the Lost Ark DVD, musician Moby delivering his CD “Hotel,” and Jason Alexander with a season of “Seinfeld” on DVD.
Amazon.com also is hosting a boutique for each customer-favorite celebrity who makes a delivery. The boutiques include the product they personally delivered and other products hand-picked by the celebrity and, in some cases, information about the celebrity's favorite charity.
