Amazon Prime

I placed an order yesterday for two things.  One will be here by Saturday....the other by April 21st?  They never stated that the product would take a month to deliver when I ordered.

 

Why  would Amazon even accept an order on prime that will take a month to arrive?They should  Just say not available. 

I do not care about waiting... a week or two....but a month?

Re: Amazon Prime

I ordered crocheted doilies on Amazon.  When I saw the estimated delivery date 6 weeks out, I went back and realized I had ordered it from a lady in China.  I took a chance and contacted her (wasn't sure she spoke or read English).  She and her husband were transferred to China from Kentucky.  Her mother taught her how to crochet and cross-stitch.  Anyway, they were worth the wait.  Lovely craftsmanship.

 

From then on, I double check origin.

Re: Amazon Prime

I just cancelled an order for jellybeans this morning because they had an April 22 delivery date. Clearly that wasn't the date shown when I ordered or I wouldn't have ordered them. The rest of my Easter candy's okay so far, but I'm going to check the ETA until they're delivered.

Re: Amazon Prime

i have several longer-term delivery dates actually being shortened. i am trying to think way ahead due to obvious demand. i am not wild about going out in L A for anything these days.

 

but i have never not had a good delivery date estimate when i placed the order with Amazon.  quite grateful for how it is handling a tough situation. maybe we are getting better service in NY LA SF due to more serious conditions than other parts of the country

Re: Amazon Prime

The April delivery date is not always true, I ordered two items with those dates and they are arriving later this week 

Stop being afraid of what could go wrong and start being positive what could go right.

Re: Amazon Prime

I have found that when I click on a item to order, it gives a date it will be available.  However, that information is not always in the same spot.  You really have to look for it.

Re: Amazon Prime

I think this is just the tip of the iceberg as far as deliveries.  Im guessing that a lot of semi's will be used for necessary items such as food.  The possibility of asking people not to order un-necessary items for a period of time may be in our near future.

Re: Amazon Prime

Beggers can't be choosers. Many items are in short supply everywhere. How long you're willing to wait depends on how badly you need or want it.

Re: Amazon Prime

Given the overload on the online system including the warehouse workers, the truckers, the local delivery people, etc.  I think the company is being very responsible if they can deliver essentials ahead of non-life sustaining products.  My kudos to Amazon for trying.
