Gallery: Would You Use Amazon’s Preemptive Return Tool for Gifts You Do...

 

We’ve all got relatives that seem to be missing the gift giving gene — remember those horrible holiday sweaters and itchy scarves of your childhood? Well, Amazon.com has a plan to curb unwanted presents and they’ve filed a patent to make sure nobody steals their idea. Amazon’s new tool would allow giftees to opt in to see the gifts they’ll be getting from people and — before they’re even sent from the warehouse — decide if they don’t want them. Though we love the idea of saving the emissions of shipping gifts and then returning them, this idea has the morality police in a huff.

What do you think about Amazon's preemptive return tool?
