*sulk*

So after having JUST placed an order with Amazon early yesterday, I receive the following in my inbox:

"We thought you'd like to know that Amazon Prime-eligible items ordered on Thursday* will now be delivered Saturday instead of Monday. With this improvement, you now have an extra day to order weekend essentials and send last-minute gifts with FREE Two-Day Shipping."

Figures, it just couldn't start a flippin day earlier. -_-

I guess they don't love you?

I, like publius1, can't tell when you're joking!

1) If you mean "maybe you got the email first because you're closer to the distribution point, har har. :p"

2) If you mean "Maybe they are only offering this to people close to the distribution centers," that doesn't make much sense to me - for one, don't they have a lot of distribution centers all over? Some of which have different items? (I know I end up getting some things from Kentucky, some from Pennsylvania, some from farther off). Plus the Saturday delivery thing seems to be just that they're ponying up for Saturday delivery (which you could specifically get for more money before, anyhow), which wouldn't seem affected by how close you are. Although I could be wrong.

I dunno, it doesn't say without going to the order page. It doesn't say anything about getting one-day Saturday shipping for any less though, so I'm guessing they probably don't.

Ah, nevermind, a different product says:

Want it delivered Monday, October 26? Order it in the next 20 hours and 26 minutes, and choose One-Day Shipping at checkout.

So yeah, looks like normal one-day is still ignoring Saturday.

Maybe a dumb question but... are you signed up to get emails/notifications from Amazon? Also when's the last order you placed? (I suspect not long ago...)
