Amazon plans to make Prime shipping one-day by default

Amazon plans to make Prime shipping one-day by default

I'd been wondering why the past 2 months most of my Prime purchases have given me the option of Free One Day Shipping.
AND even more important, ALL of them arrived in one day.
This incentive has moved me to purchase MORE on Amazon as versus getting in car, driving to store, fighting the crowd, purchase item and take it home. ( I was going to start it off with get dressed but...I am essentially dressed, just happens to be my comfy home clothes. ha)

Woop Woop!
Wondering if other retailers will step up and match.
Hmmmmmm.

I've been experiencing just the opposite. Everything has been 2 day and many not having 1 day upgrade as an option :( Hopefully this is merely a temporary side effect of the upcoming changes.

I remember (and I'm still experiencing) alot of warehouse transfers of my inventory.
REALLY spread out to many warehouses.
Granted, I don't have that much in the warehouse(s).... but... hear me out, Perhaps that is why only certain warehouses are offering one day as it is in their nearby warehouse.

Hope it gets better for you.

Still one day arrivals of packages this week.
It is spurring me on to buying more on Amazon.

Amazon can already ship to 72% of US population within a day

The map on the page and I also posted it says so much about the density of population in the areas that Amazon does one day shipping. (image credit on image)
Man, just look at the difference between 2014 and 2019.
WOW!

It's a really good article.

I recently purchased something from Amazon and it got here the next day. Like Donna, I received the option of free one day Prime shipping.

Not too shabby, I must say.

Today an order arrived in one day.
Yesterday an order arrived in one day.
I'm loving this and have no gripes.

Too bad that one-day thing isn't for everything. Just ordered a new printer and couldn't get it for a week. I looked at other places (Best Buy, Staples, Mfg. website, etc.) and all had free shipping at the same price and all had delivery dates of this coming Wednesday. But the extra ink I ordered to go along with the printer came the next day. Can't figure out what the delay was but everyone was in sync about the selling price as well as the delivery date.

I've had a few purchases defer to 2 day.
It's due to access of items that you're purchasing being in a warehouse near you.
Or drop shipped by a seller.
Son wanted a billabong belt on Friday...attempted to purchase with one day.
Nope.
Deferred to Prime delivery on June 5th.
What?
I checked it out and they are using Amazon as a drop ship (like many other biz's).
Same price and date of delivery from their website. UGH!
I didn't order it for him and he chose to buy another item.
Still don't like that I pay for prime and an item is on prime but do not guarantee the purchase delivery until June 5th from the business.

All in all, I am VERY pleased with Amazon's one day shipping and yes, I'm still buying more than I used to.
