When I ordered from Tiger Direct a while ago and I'd have to assume Amazon might be similar the guy at the door was awestruck when I told him I wanted to look at it before I signed and was lucky he even allowed it.
Certainly not "Lucky", rather well within your rights. If you have not ever had to fight with a supplier and freight company over internal hidden damage, it is a mess and you, the consumer will end up losing, because you give up your leverage as soon as you sign the receiving slip.
I recently purchased a 65VT50 and took it out of the box and hooked it up to a BR player and looked for dead pixels while the delivery driver was still there. Heck he even helped me look. I ended up giving him$20 for lunch for his patience and generally good attitude. I told him as soon as I answered the door what I was going to do and that if he remained patient I would buy him lunch.
