So this really isn't a Prime horror story...it's a vendor who uses Prime horror story...right?

 

If anything, this is a positive story from an Amazon perspective. They did everything they could to help you and you walked away a happy customer.

 

Yes.  That is my entire point.  Thank you for condensing it.

Emoticons are helpful in getting across a point, especially if it's withering sarcasm.

Naah.  Emoticons are a crutch. ;)   I much prefer to (try to) get my message across with words alone.

I totally didn't get the sarcasm at all. Obviously.  :blush:

No problem, Jason.  Many times I try to be clever, but wind up just communicating something besides what I mean.  If no one points it out, I'll never get any better.

 

So go ahead and https://www.youtube....h?v=BKDslK2dT0I   :D

But a family cat is not replaceable like a wornout coat or a set of tires. Each new kitten becomes its own cat, and none is repeated. I am four cats old, measuring out my life in friends that have succeeded but not replaced one another.--Irving Townsend

The credit has been around for a bit for mp3s, but I didn't know about the book credit.  I don't use mp3s, but this one would entice me.

I have seen that a few times when I have placed orders, but have not taken advantage of it yet -- not sure why I haven't.

Yeah to me most of the time I want prime not for the speed but for the free.  =)  I'd go with the credit on many orders.

I've seen (and accepted) the offer for Instant Video credit. It seems like they are rotating the type of offer.

Anyone ever get something shipped all the way across the country by truck? It's called UPS Ground, I know, but jeez why did they ship my soundbar by freaking truck 3000+ miles? The ONE thing I've needed badly in a reasonable time I have to sit around and wait for. I can't even track this thing. I got rid of Prime earlier this year because of the skyrocketing prices for some Blu-rays but sometimes I wish I still had it. I'm beginning to think Amazon did it on purpose to get me to sign up for Prime again.

I think ups ground or it's equivalent is what most companies use, when the customer is not paying for expedited shipping. I've found it to be the rule, and not the exception.

UPS Ground is not trucked cross country.  It is trucked to a UPS Rail facility, trained, in a sorted container, to the UPS railhub nearest to the destination facility, trucked to that facility, then deliverd by a brown step van.
