So what's up with Amazon's "free" shipping lately?
Been a while since I ordered from them and I placed an order the other day, both items in stock, chose their free super saver shipping option. Order changed to say they are expected to ship in TWO TO FOUR WEEKS!!! (Anticipated shipping date per the confirming email is between 3/13 and 3/16.)
When did they go over to that model? They used to ship it fairly quickly, then you got it in a week or ten days, so typically not more than 2 weeks from when you ordered so long as the item was in stock. Now they just sit on it for a month? Is the idea that you'll instead opt to pay them for shipping (really, just shipping it sooner) so you don't forget what you ordered in the meanwhile?
Seems like a sleazy, underhanded way to do business.
