    Tried to order a few things today and it said April 28th delivery estimate. Looked into it and they have suspended non essential items from being shipped.

    Last week they stopped RECIEVING items from FBA sellers, now they stopped their shipments.

    There goes some volume....

    Hope those fools paying for Prime get their money back.

    Just my opinion but if you have Amazon Prime they need to be giving you a discount on your membership.

    Must just be you. I've got an item in my cart right now, estimated delivery March 31st.

    That restriction on non essential items only applies to outside sellers who use Amazon. Anything directly from Amazon is still being shipped like normal, with maybe a slight delay because of increased volume.

    Our volume is way down. Pre 2019 levels. I heard something about us not doing 2 days anymore and it’s only one days, or vice versus.

    but isnt that why amazon charges $98 something a year is for the 2 day shipping. People need to demand a refund.

    People need to be dropping Amazon Prime even in the best of times. It’s a ripoff. There’s no need to pay for that crap.

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    Many consider the shipping a free throw in and pay for the other services prime members get.

    It only makes since economically if you REGULARLY take full advantage of ALL the services available. When I still had a membership I tried to do just that and many of the services aren’t available everywhere and the value of the rest simply didn’t add up. I can get the shows/movies for free (legally) elsewhere and have never had trouble finding items priced competitively (often cheaper) and often with free shipping. At worst the shipping would bring the price on par with the Amazon price. Big picture wise....I’ve come out ahead without a Prime membership and if I can’t find something elsewhere I’ve been able to still use Amazon without a membership. Often with free shipping. LOL.

    Every non essential thing I try to buy that has PRIME, has a delivery date of late April. Try it for yourself.


    As for the comment about your cart, it must be deemed as essential.

    "Everything as normal"... prime goods are ones that are in warehouses. Even the items that are in the warehouses and NOT being shipped as normal. Read any news article about it. Prime is being delayed.

    It’s like $9 a month. The time you spend trying to find something priced the same with free shipping is likely worth those $9 to many people.

    I’m not trying to sell you that it’s some amazing value but acting like $100 a year is some huge ripoff is just dumb

    I ordered new blousing straps (I’m also military) on Amazon last night and received them today (Amazon driver). And I’m not even paying for Prime. Baaaahaahaaaa!
