I'm a long time Amazon user. I've used prime on and off for the last couple of years. The first year of prime they would do anything to make sure you got your package in 2 days. Now good luck, they have changed the meaning of 2 days. So now if you order, it's two days from whenever they want to update it on their tracking website to look like 2 day shipping. I know first world problems, but there is a deeper issue here. When I was in college I got into a huge arguement with my professor about Marketing, and how companies lie to get you to buy the product. Has anybody every ordered food from a fast food place that looks anything like the marking photo? Professor said companies are honest, if it show two buns and one patty, it's the truth. I think it is bait and switch. But I digress, there was a time when people wouldn't stand for this kind of stuff. Have we gotten to soft as consumers because of our throwaway society? It is either two days shipping or it isn't, there shouldn't be anything in between. If they can't do that call it something else, "fast as we can shipping", "faster than if you don't pay for extra membership fees" etc. Just venting because I see so many lies everywhere in marketing now. Even in stores, I've noticed that they are putting product in places to trick you to think it is on sale when it isn't (talking to you Hobby Lobby). I'm old, my eyes can't see that tiny tiny find print sometimes.
