If anyone does any business over in G&T, then you may recall that I had a thread about buying some stuff on Amazon.com.
Well, I did purchase some items Thursday last week, and now I'm wondering if anybody knows their shipping procedure. Normally I wouldn't really care, but their local warehouse is probably about an hour away from my house, and I haven't received my stuff. I opted for Super Saver shipping (it's free), and while they say they shipped it almost immediately after I placed my order, I know of no postage rate that would take a week to mail this stuff such a short distance. Furthermore, checking the tracking number on the USPS website shows that according to the postal service, they haven't even picked it up yet.
My question is this: does Amazon purposely hold on to your package for a few days if you pick their free shipping option? Obviously paying for two-day mail or their Prime service isn't too enticing if normal mail can deliver it in two or three days anyway. Which website should I trust more about the current status of my package - Amazon or USPS?
