That would be me.
YES. As unbelievable as it sounds, I am a spoiled brat!!
I recently grumbled and complained about Amazon’s lousy shipping service lately– how it’s taking them forever to ship my latest few orders out of the warehouse. But Carole, a lady with a good head on her shoulders, left a comment:
I will share everyone’s woes about Amazon’s slow shipping, but I presume all of us are referring to the “free Super Saver shipping”? Because despite the fact that sometimes I have to wait quite a while for my stuff (although sometimes stuff does still come super quick – I ordered a vacuum recently that came within 3 days!), I am extremely happy that Amazon continues to offer FREE shipping at such a low threshold of $25 – I really don’t know any place else myself that offers a bajillion products that ship free for spending only $25. I just make sure I order my stuff well in advance of when I need it, but I really can’t muster a lot of anger about their slowness when they’re giving it to me for free, esp in this economy. My 2 cents.
Carole, you are absolutely right!
I often take advantage of Amazon’s free shipping service (there are other stores that offer it, and I do take advantage of them as well, when I can). It’s FREE!! Who can complain? Of course, I would prefer that Amazon do their best to still give me timely, efficient service and to keep their prospective delivery schedule. But yes, the shipping I refer to is free, and it is wrong of me to complain. I got very spoiled by Amazon, because they have really great prices, loads of goodies, and their free shipping was always so fast. Lately it has not been fast; heck, it hasn’t even been slow. It’s been sloooooooooowwwwwwww. But maybe Amazon is going through some hurdles of their own. I’m sorry, Amazon. I do still love you. You’ve been good to me! :D
