    Since this thread was first posted I ordered something from Amazon and it's out for delivery today.

    Never had an issue with the big A and the few returns I made went smooth as silk.

    Good for you! I do not like using them. Sometimes they are the only source for a given product.

    Amazon used to have great deals, but now I can always find it cheaper elsewhere

    I live in a huge metro area with a gazillion people. There have been times in the last few years that I would think of something I wanted and say "I will just buy it locally!!" So I would begin the process, put on pants, get my wallet and head out. Two are three stores later, after hours roaming aisles, I would determine that it was not worth my time. So, I would end up back home ordering from Amazon and getting the item the next day or the day after.

    Amazon did not get big because people love them, Amazon got big by being convenient.

    You seem to be one of the few people who get this... I am PAYING for a service I am NOT receiving.

    Dump it. Cancel it. Boot it's underperforming butt down the street.

    "But I have decided to cancel my subscription when it comes due." I said a few posts ago...

    Would think you would stop posting.

    Indeed. I am truly sorry that Amazon cannot service you the way they service me. I think there is a fulfillment center an hour away from me.

    Exactly. If they can't deliver (pun intended), they shouldn't offer the service. When it gives you an arrival date on the site as you order... they need to meet that date or at least be comfortably close.
