    Amazon Prime not really 2 day shipping anymore?

    Has anyone noticed that items on Prime aren't arriving within 2 days like they used to? Isn't that the whole point of Prime?

    Mine are still arriving within 2 days. Sometimes sooner.

    I have noticed that a lot of items aren't even getting processed till the second day. Most of the items I order from Amazon aren't needed within two days, so I don't raise a stink about it. I like Prime for the "free" shipping," not necessarily that it's supposed to be 2-day shipping.

    Most of my stuff comes in two days. I have not noticed a change, even with the holiday.

    I haven't had any issues... some come in one day. And, now they are giving "bonuses" on some items if you accept less than 2 days.

    A couple of things to look for, some items aren't necessarily fulfilled by Amazon; they some times slip. It's holiday season, Amazon gets behind on a lot of things.

    A couple of things have been slower, but I think that's the sheer volume of holiday shipping.

    I had something that was supposed to come in 2 days and they sent me an email saying it wasn't coming until the next week. It came the very next day. Most of my stuff does come in 2 days but like Peachy, I have prime for other reasons. The 2 day shipping is nice though.

    I have had this issue a few times and not necessarily around the holiday season. I usually don't make too much of a fuss because it's still here more quickly than if I had ordered somewhere else. DH runs into this quite a bit though. I think, like TtT posted, he may be ordering items that are not fulfilled by Amazon.
