I reported before of clicking on the "today" one-click button at Amazon, meaning that I would pay a premium to get it here today (an option in the Phoenix area but not all locations) and having the item delivered one, two, or even three days later, rather than same day as promised. This is happening with my Amazon orders more often than not - they are showing up days after they were promised when the sale was made.
It has now happened two more times. On Tuesday evening I bought two small items I needed for an emergency computer rebuild, clicking in both cases on the button for delivery on Wednesday. Neither showed up on Wednesday. Neither showed up on Thursday. The tracking on the site now says Friday. (By the way, all the rest of the stuff ordered from Newegg on a one day delivery showed up exactly as promised).
I went back and looked and the order confirmations sure enough say delivery on Friday. I would never have ordered the item for Friday delivery, and in fact skimmed through multiple similar items until I found one that could be delivered on Wednesday. I am positive I clicked Wednesday delivery, but a day later I got confirmations for a Friday delivery, without so much as an apology or even acknowledgement that this was not what I was promised. I am sure Amazon will just call this user error on my part, but it now has happened on 8 or my last 10 rush shipments. I GUARANTEE I know how to use Amazon, and have the order history to prove it, LOL.
I am convinced Amazon is executing a bait and switch, luring me into the purchase with the promise of a quick delivery and then delivering it several days late when it is too late for me to do anything about it. Next time I do a rush order, I am going to take full screenshots of every step I take to prove what is going on. Anyone else having similar experiences? Amazon was dead-on reliable on these types of things until about 6 months ago, and then started to go off the tracks recently.
