I think they are purposely holding shit back.

Before I even signed up for Prime I used to get most purchases in 1 day. There's about half a dozen massive fulfillment centers near my house.

But since Covid anything they deem "nonessential" is not shipping right away, even when it's in stock.

I ordered a cooler bag and it was in stock and they waited almost two weeks to ship it to me. Once it shipped I had it next day.

There are more and more companies selling on Amazon, but NOT fulfilled by Amazon so the perception is the delivery time is extended. Anything fulfilled by Amazon has been pretty damn quick...in some cases surprisingly quick.

Is your BODs late?

Ya, that's what I'm talking about.
They're using the Covid as an excuse, so why even bother paying for Prime?

Just discussed this today with several people, wonder if Prime members should get a discount on renewal.... Most things have been averaging 3 to 4 days now even though it shows 2 day delivery.
Think they are running behind again, seems they caught up in June/July but last few weeks been slow again.

I ordered three things Saturday and they were delivered this morning. Are you all SURE you are checking the PRIME box when you get results?
