I was just reading about that earlier this morning. I am going to stay away from Amazon Basics and spend a bit more money for the name-brand.Packages arriving late is one thing, but this type of situation is even worse as well as dangerous.
Dozens of Amazon's own products have been reported as dangerous -- melting, exploding or even bursting into flames. Many are still on the marketWhen firefighters arrived at Austin Parra's home on January 12, 2017, they could see smoke and the charred remnants of an office chair outside.www.cnn.com
I'm sure this is just my experience, but it seems that since Amazon started charging sales tax, that is when all of my major issues started. And when I say major, I mean noticeable decline in their promise to get items in the time they were scheduled with nearly zero issues. I know Amazon sometimes rewards you when an item is really late, but it is very rare.
I got really spoiled when it comes to speedy service from Amazon. I remember the good old days, paying the extra fee to have something the very next day( which wasn't much, and well worth it) . Man, that was great.
Clinton good to hear -- especially the fact that there is still Sunday delivery. Perhaps I haven't been timing my orders correctly.I still receive fantastic service from Amazon. I have Prime just for streaming video so free 2 day shipping is a bonus. I think I’ve only had one item that didn’t arrive when it should and that was a carrier delay because they damaged the item and returned it to Amazon on their own. We still get weekend deliveries and I have seen Amazon trucks in my neighborhood on Sundays.
I never trusted online retailers for stuff I need for the "next day".I'm generally OK with their shipping and rarely have issues but they do seem to be getting worse. I don't think I'd trust them for anything I truly needed "tomorrow."
