I have been with Amazon Prime since it was free and don't think there is a better Internet shopping service available. I don't even use NewEgg anymore because Amazon Prime is so good. Free shipping with guaranteed 2 day delivery what more could I ask? Well the other day I ordered an item and as always chose the item that was available from Amazon Prime. I then proceeded to place the item in the cart, proceed to checkout, done. Beautiful as always. So today I make arrangements with work, without checking the tracking status, to be at home when the package arrives. While waiting I decide to check the status. The tracking estimates that it is supposed to be here next week some time. Needless to say I'm ****ed right now. I called up and got Punjab who told me that while the item was available from Amazon Prime it shipped from a non prime provider. He said he could ship it from Amazon and have it here tomorrow. I said well why didn't it ship from Amazon to begin with? He didn't have an answer.
So just a heads up. He told me I should have clicked on "x new" and then chose Amazon as the shipper. I think that should be without saying but I guess every system has its flaws.
