Amazon Minions boxes

If you've received a package from Amazon in the past week, chances are it looked a bit different than what you're used to. For about a week, Amazon has been shipping boxes featuring advertisement for the new Minions movie -- part of the Despicable Me franchise -- set to open in theaters July 10.

The yellow boxes mark the first time Amazon has allowed advertising on their shipping boxes, and they didn't just dip their toes in to try it out, they went all out. The colorful box might be a bold move, but then again, who doesn't like Minions?

According to GeekWire, there are at least three different ads, all on different box sizes, so not all orders will arrive with the new look. If you buy something from this Minions page on Amazon, I'd say your chances are pretty high, though.

Have you received a Minions box in the past week? We just got one delivered to the Slickdeals office!

No I haven't gotten a minion box yet. Received about 2 amazon boxes this past week including one today. Just the normal brown boxes for me.

I got one. Seems like a great idea: Amazon gets money for advertising and the bright colored boxes make them more of a target to get stolen from my doorstep. Yay!

Maybe they should make camo printed boxes to match your door step to decrease the odds of getting stolen.
