Another reason why I love Amazon Prime

If the item I am ordering is within 1 day shipping, they automatically ship it one day without charging me the $4.

Is that a more of a guideline or a rule? It would seem to defeat the whole purpose of charging the $3.99, if they always did this.

In my experience, this freebie experience depends on how close you are to the shipping distribution center.... But if you're lucky enough to live close, bully for you!

I've had that happen a few times from them. Including a new Pioneer A/V receiver that weighs about 20# - one day delivery, was stunned when that happened smiling smiley

Outpost and their $3 overnight through Airborne spoiled us all back in the day smiling smiley



Good Luck!

That's it exactly. Depends from where they are shipping the item.

Yep. There's an Amazon distribution center in Fernley NV. If an item is located there, I get it in one day with two day shipping.

If anyone wants their UPS items quickly, get to know your UPS delivery man and find out his delivery route. Just go to his first scheduled stop on time and he'll give you your package right then. Probably will work for FedEx as well..

I'd say that about 90% of my amazon purchases (both before and after I got prime) have shown up the next day, no matter what shipping method I chose.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan
