Do you shop with Amazon?

Do you plan to? It just seems to me that their shipping service has drastically gone downhill. If you plan to use the FREE SHIPPING option, you should probably order now or plan to use 2-day.

Amazon used to ship out the free shipping items within a week or so. I ordered something about 1 1/2 weeks ago and it still hasn't shipped, and probably won't for another week according to their status thing. And yes, some of it is Christmas stuff. Good thing I ordered early.

  • Hmm I've never experienced a problem with Amazon's shipping and I have bought several things from them. I actually just ordered a mobile for my son on Thursday and it shipped yesterday.

  • I have only ordered one item from Amazon and I paid for the shipping and it was here in a couple of days.

  • I've never had a problem with Amazon shipping either. It does sometimes take 3 weeks if you use the free shipping though, so be prepared for that. It's been that way for as long as I can remember though. But the items do ship as soon as possible, they just don't gou the fastest way. I love using Amazon for items I can't find on sale in local stores.

  • I love Amazon! Never had a problem. Usually really fast shipping even with their free shipping over 25.00. They have warehouses all over the country. So what you ordered may not be at the warehouse nearest you.
    Just make sure what you purchased was coming directly from them. Sometimes it says fulfilled by Amazon but actually the merchandise is coming from a 3rd party vendor.Their shipping times can vary. I would just send them an email and ask. I have always had a fast ,friendly response from their customer service department.
