The way Amazon operates is more beguiling than many people realize, especially if you're new to Amazon. At the start, they will fulfill your first few orders (have orders picked, packed, and out of the door) as fast as any Amazon Prime member's order, so only the carrier type will determine shipping time, even with their free "super-saver" shipping. They do this in an attempt to attract new customers to look at Amazon first for their online shopping experience. It's not until some pre-determined time has past before Amazon will start to not meet those same expectations. One way they do this is by intentionally delaying fulfilment of your order placed with free shipping. Suddenly, a customer's order can take as much as a week after it's placed before it's even picked off the shelf. They make no secret of this fact. If you complain to CS, they will respond with what's in the order agreement policy (that nobody reads). If you want fast service (orders guaranteed to arrive within 2-3 business days) you should consider becoming an Amazon Prime member for $99/year. Orders placed by non-Prime members can take as much as 10 business days to arrive. It's no coincidence that this stark realization doesn't occur with most everyone until after they suck you in first.

Okay that's all fine and dandy, but I'll pass on the $99 fee, mostly because I don't order enough from them to justify it, and instead just rather order from their vendors that directly ship to their customers or (more likely) just shop elsewhere.

Well I've placed quite literally hundreds of orders from Amazon since 2010, and never ran into what I felt was "intentional delaying fulfillment" of my order. FWIW at least 75% of my orders I take advantage of free shipping, they always seem to get to me in about a weeks worth of time, and occasionally they even arrive a day earlier than even the earliest estimated date.

IMO Amazon has THE best CS hands down. I feel so at ease when shopping big ticket items, because I know they got my back if anything were to go wrong. Heck just last week I ordered an AC router (Asus RT-AC68U), only to have Amazon start selling it for $30 cheaper the very next day. I phoned in and politely asked if they would price match after the fact, and sure enough they refunded me the $30. Had several other times where I ordered a bulky/heavy item but never got around to using it. Didn't want to eat the return shipping, so again politely asked if they could waive the shipping fee, and they never once said no. (to be fair I emphasized the items were still sealed and Amazon could totally sell them as new in box, so that might've made a difference)

I tried to use one of the coupon codes posted in here and it looks like they all have now expired.

Anyone can still start an account on their website and then like them on Facebook to get a one time use 5.5% coupon code. thumb.gif

As someone mentioend I placed two orders back to back since I forgot something, emailed them and they just paypal'd me a refund.

As for shipping, I'm in FL so via FedEx Home or UPS Ground it's 1 day as opposed to priority which is still 2 day. Unfortunately I am taxed, not sure about others if they are taxed.

If PPCs has no company operation in the state in which the customer resides then there's no sales tax charged by them when ordering. Some customers will be subject to a "use tax" however, depending on the customer's state tax code. I think PPCs is only located in Florida.

Yeah I figured. Since I'm impatient it's really nice to have next day shipping, especially stacked with some discount code. Just used the JAYZ coupon to get the new swiftech 240X2, now I want a GPU block for my 980Ti to expand the loop.

If those are gone then there's nothing else at the moment.

You can always use "OCN55" for -5.5% off (as long as your order is $50 or more before shipping).

Do you guys know how rush works?


I placed an order at 12:34pm pacific time on Feb 15 with rush and the USPS tracking says shippmemt picked up Feb 16 at 12:07pm.

I was under the impression rush meant theyd drop it off at the postal service the same day if i placed the order early enough.
