Out of thousands of packages, the only time I've had a late delivery was when the order wasn't fulfilled by Amazon directly or it was an 'act of God event' like a major road closure. I'm definitely a fan.
Not to mention that delivery is free on a lot of items.

I didn't realize there were non-prime members.

We have been using prime for years, beyond the shipping all the other benefits are great too. We especially like the streaming services bundled with prime.

If they ship via the dreaded "smart post" the package can take the long way around and get stuck for awhile as well. Used to run into that before we had Prime. Of course not all items are Prime items either.

USPS has stepped up their game a lot recently. The stuff that's promised by Sunday is shipped/delivered by USPS.

Ditto. I can't recall what we bought, but we got 3 months of Prime for free for some purchase. Once I realized that I could buy any $6 item and have it shipped for free in 2 days I was hooked. We well get our money's worth out of Prime. I think we're in our 3rd year of Prime now.

Yeah I can't imagine not having Prime. It only takes a few packages showing up in 2 days with free shipping on Sunday's to realize it's worth every penny. I love the people who tell me they can get it $5 cheaper at Wal-Mart or some box store. Maybe you can, but I never left the house, spent the gas money and my time roaming the store and sitting in a checkout line, that is worth $5 to me. I use the Subscribe and Save option, now I have everything I'd usually have to run into town to get delivered to my doorstep every 3 months (paper towels, toilet paper, dish soap, etc). It to me is like my Sams Club or Costco but delivered to my doorstep anytime I please.

We've been Prime members since almost the very beginning. And I wouldn't trade it for anything. We live in a small rural community, so we don't have a lot of "brick & mortar" stores readily available. Prime has allowed us to get basically whatever we need, and fast. We might have to drive 30-40 minutes (one way) to "shop" items at a store, and there's no guarantee they'll have it. With Prime, I can just have it shipped right away. I think it's safe to say they've lost money on us.

And I also love the streaming services, and we use the Kindle app on our iPads for E-books. This is great since we don't have cable available in our area, and I gave satellite the boot years ago.

When they raised the membership cost recently, I was like "psh, whatever."

I've given up on online ordering for critical items. Anything from anywhere takes 3-5 business days. Tracking or not.


If I absolutely must have something today or tomorrow. There are plenty of stores within my normal travels to buy it and have it in my hands right then and there.


Obsolete parts for obscure equipment can only be secured online. Love it!


But if I need ten 1/4 -20 x 1" stainless steel or galvanized bolts with matching nuts, you'll find me at Tractor Supply on my next ride home from work. Oh, and the lock-washers!
