I know how to use a calendar; do the folks at Amazon.com understand what “two days” means?
A few years ago, I bought into an Amazon.com Prime membership. For $79/year, I get “free two-day shipping” on items that qualify for Amazon Prime. Almost everything I buy qualifies.
Today, I needed to order an extra long iPad 2 charging cable and an SD card. I got on Amazon, added the items to my cart, making sure they were marked “Prime,” and checked out. Note the last screen before I completed the checkout process:
Today is November 2. Two days from now is November 4. Seven days — or five business days — from now is November 9.
It says Prime. I paid for Prime. I paid for 2-day shipping.
Why is this item delayed?
So now I’m faced with a dilemma: do I blow it off and just settle for something less than I paid for or do I waste an hour of my life with the frustration that would result from contacting Amazon.com?
What would you do?
