He's mad at Amazon for being so slow.

Is he? You should have had a slightly smaller pic for that effect. That size requires scrolling you see and you need that immediacy for the kind of thing you wanted.

He's angry with Amazon too.  He's not trying to create any special effects.
He's just disappointed that it took them a whole year to ship his new hammer.

Amazon lost his order.  That's why he didn't win his match.  Poor thing.

He's also frustrated with Amazon.  Does he look like a guy who reads Danielle Steel?

I'm just about to make a purchase on amazon and I made sure to have enough in my basket to ensure free delivery (as usual). All items are "in stock" and yet the "estimated delivery" is 19 January. 19 January?? For in stock items? What are they doing manufacturing the items themselves? I could get my items quicker if I traveled all the way to the amazon warehouse by ant sledge. These guys are starting to act like they're the only game in town but they aren't! :madra:

Joining PRIME on Amazon, almost everytime delivers in 2 days...been with that program for years now....


And there it is -- the probable reason why Amazon's regular shipping is so slow nowadays. They really really want you to spend the extra money to join PRIME. They're pushing it big time these days, and making the regular shipping slower might entice you to upgrade. They figure people now rely on Amazon for everyday items and want them as soon as possible, and because Amazon is huge and greedy, they want you to pay a premium for what should be normal shipping costs.

Tick is right, they're getting so huge that they feel they can do whatever they want. Nowadays I buy from Amazon only if I can't get it somewhere else.

PRIME isn't free, right? What's it cost per month?

It works out to $10 per month. If you buy a lot of stuff from them on a regular basis and do music and video streaming, etc., then that's not a bad deal. But if you only buy one thing every couple of months or so, like me, then it might not be worth it. People like me are stuck with their now slow shipping times because I'm not paying $120 a year for PRIME.

I noticed they started reserving shit for prime members which sucks.  but if i desperately want an exclusive item.....third party. which has never failed me yet so.

i don't buy a lot so none of this really bothers me.

I agree with you.  prime makes sense for my situation....
