free for a limited time only 8 day shipping vs free 2 day shipping ?

not really. What billb said, it is not fast shipping, it is not permanent, does not include streaming (music and video), etc. there is a lot more to prime than just the free shipping.

Not really. but... when everyone has two day shipping.. nobody does. I doubt the logistics chain is up to the stress. We will see that fall apart, probably somewhere around December 8th.

Walmart and now Home Depot offering free 2 day shipping.

Target is ususally pretty fast too, but not sure what they promise to red card owners.

...if it were a permanent deal.

A few years ago, it wouldn't have at all.

Not so much that Prime was cheaper, but being a Prime eligible product meant a quaranteed 2-day delivery.

Now, that isn't always the case. It still means free shipping, but occasionally it will give a guaranteed delivery date greater that the presumed two day window.

That reduces the ROI for me.

I use Prime Video quite a bit. I could (and did for several years) work with the free slower shipping deals (when it was a $25 min). I do like the free 2-day year-round, though, and would miss it.

I pulled the plug on Prime effective this month, so it’s no big deal to me.

For years I carried the "I am leaving Amazon Prime banner."
I use the Prime TV (well the family does) feature more now.
So I see things differently now.
I pay $40.00 a month to Direct TV NOW.
I pay $10.00 a month to Amazon for TV and shopping experience that others have yet to obtain.

Ya hear that Apple Computer. When was the last time you gave us what we wanted.

They said prime members will get more same day delivery for free as part of this.

It's a holiday promotion to encourage people to do their Christmas shopping at Amazon. I couldn't care less.

LOL.

Exactly.

Ya hear that Apple Computer. When was the last time you gave us what we wanted.

Didn't you get the memo? Apple dropped the Computer from their name and became Apple Inc. several years ago.

I do agree with you though. They still make computers, and they should devote more effort to keep their customers satisfied.

Oh, and I am not bothered by the free shipping promotion. I like Prime shipping, and I do find myself watching a bunch of their videos. Music, not so much. I still think it's a good value.
