    Anybody ordering from Amazon notice shipping changes?

    I live in the country and every time I have to make a trip to Springfield it costs me a minimum of $10 in fuel plus the tax issue so I order a lot of things through Amazon. I really like Amazon. I think they do a great job. In the past when ordering I noticed that if I picked the cheapest or free shipping choice in lieu of paying for the next choice "up" I would still get my order very fast, that is, in two or three days. Now that seems to have changed. If I pick the cheapest way Amazon waits several days to ship the order even if it was shown to be "on hand" at an Amazon distribution center. Case in point is I just ordered a Bosch Rotary Hammer on May 6th which was shown to be in stock at Amazon. They just shipped the thing yesterday, May 12th. I think that's BS. I guess from now on I'll be forced to pick a shipping choice that costs more money if I want faster service.

    It has probably been 3 weeks since I last ordered on Amazon, but I had my order 3 days later, using free shipping. A few weeks ago, they did increase the minimum order for free shipping, from $25 to $35. Can't blame them really, and it takes no effort to spend $35!!

    I'll be watching the next order I place with them, and see what happens.

    I'm a Prime member, so that may make a difference as well as my location, but I routinely order, pick 2 day and have the order next day. I placed an order Sunday and it was delivered yesterday.

    Was it sold by Amazon or was it another company selling on Amazon. I have had issues with sellers other than amazon taking a longer time to processes.

    It was sold by Amazon. That is something I watch for when I order because I am aware that it can slow things down when it comes from a vendor. I just sent Amazon a complaint note. I'll see what they say.

    One other thing I have noticed their order status system may be behind but the order it processed. I place an order and it took a couple of days to get the tracking info. When I tracked the package it had shipped out a couple days prior and was scheduled for delivery that day.

    I order TONS of stuff from Amazon. Like you, I have noticed that when you pick the free shipping option that they have started to take longer to process the order, even if the item is in stock. I have a massive Amazon warehouse about 10 miles from me and used to get even free shipping items the next day. They are clearly trying to pressure us to use the next level shipping option. Note, Amazon is not the only company to do this.

    The increase from $25 to $35 as the minimum for free shipping happened a while back.

    Maybe they are trying to prepare or condition people for items that will be to heavy for their drones.
