miserly said: i just ordered at noon. Not PrimeNow which is supposed to be within 2 hours. I'm going to guess 6PM. Title said 1 day delivery, not same day delivery. How much extra did you have to pay and what is it that you couldn't wait a few days for?
Actually I have a car on jack stands today to check brakes. Need rear pads. This would come in Handy if I wanted to get it done today but nothing from Amazon saying free same day shipping. Pads are $8.60 at RockAuto or $14.19 with shipping. Local parts store I get it tomorrow from, $13.90.

My son happened to be awake, saw the delivery notice for his shipment pop up on his phone, looked out the window and saw the driver place the package in our mailbox and then drive off. I think that one was about 1.5 days for delivery from Amaz0n.

I don't know who the subcon was delivering for, probably was USPS as we've never had anyone else use the box.

USPS has some part of the weekend/Sunday delivery contract for Amaz0n, maybe even all of it. We see USPS trucks zipping around all day here on Sundays making those drop offs. I ordered Amaz0n OralB-clone brush heads from a Hot Deals post, they had a USPS tracking # and were delivered while we were out of the house yesterday.
My experience is pretty good with Prime. Now that they are using the USPS more, I have seen some delays. I find it amusing too that they code their delays as a delivery problem. ie business closed, receptacle blocked, etc. I assume they are trying to meet an SLA with Amazon and are being told to lie.

It really irritates me when they do that. Don't try to blame ME for YOUR failure! Especially when Amazon follows up the tracking with an e-mail erroneously stating that Sunday delivery was attempted.
