    Overnight shipping is totally a rip off. Man look at those prices they are charging.

    Sadly, I bet someone has actually done this...

    Today I got an e-mail from a random MMS address I don't know informing me that if I get any of the "mw3 mountain dews" and want to give whoever this is the code, he/she/it will "love me forever."

    Having absolutely no interest in MW3, I wasn't even aware that they had dews. But since I do drink the dews on a regular basis, I will have to keep an eye open. The prospect of winning the everlasting devotion of [email protected]&T.net is not something to be taken lightly.

    NEVER go with "ship express."

    You don't even have to have Prime. Amazon offers "day of release delivery" so they can compete on game launches.

    What is this I don't even.

    I am sorry to say that I have, several times now, ignored the Dr. Pepper I would normally drink in order to grab a Mountain Dew for those bonus ex-pees.

    Yes, my Prime account has earned a place of honor in my household.

    The funny thing to me is that Erika has done same-day shipping from Amazon for things she wants.

    Release day shipping is awesome, $1 for overnight delivery.

    I don't know if any amount of XP would get me to drink Mountain Dew over Dr Pepper.

    I've never seen overnight as a rip-off. It's merely something I can't leisurely afford.

    Nobody likes me but that's okay. I'm used to it.

    The best shipping is no shipping, because you live 5 minutes away from the warehouse and can go pick it up yourself if you have the order number.

    If anything, it's kind of a bargain. How much would you have to be paid to delivery something 1,000 miles away within 24 hours? First off, we have gas expenses. Then food. And time for our effort. If you added all that up, it would be at least triple what you pay a shipping service.

    Luckily they consolidate millions of shipments and pass the savings onto us.

    I dunno man. I can easily imagine some dudes out there who would do all that for free to get MW3 (or what have ye) early.
