Impressed with Amazon Prime!

I’ve been an Amazon Prime customer for a few years now and have enjoyed free 2 day shipping. For awhile now all of my Prime orders have been upgraded to one day shipping, but the past few book orders that I’ve placed they have arrived the same day. I’m not sure if this is because i’m lucky to live near a distribution center or if Amazon is slowly building out their distribution infrastructure to allow for this kind of service. It’s incredible to order a book at 10am and have it at your door step at 5:30pm. The savings in shipping fees alone have more than covered the $79 annual fee.

If you’re looking for a unique Christmas gift for someone that frequently buys items online or listens to music and streams movies Amazon Prime might be a gift worth considering.
Anyone else getting same day service from

    No, I”m not getting same day service, and I’d like that. 🙂 Maybe I need to order more. I am still very happy with my Amazon prime. I have to say the video searching and selecting for viewing interface needs some serious work. I’ve tried watching a few things on amazon instant and been successful. But I keep going back to my netflix account for serious queue management and keeping track of where I was last on a program.

      I’m not convinced it’s based on how much I order or is ordered. I think it just happens that we have a local distribution wheel in town. I’m really not sure. I haven’t checked out the amazon movies yet, i’m still sticking with Netfilx due to their AppleTV integration.. and availability on the iPad. I’m guess Amazon won’t go that direction with their current Kindle Fire release… 🙂
