    Just place an order at 11:59pm and set it to 1 day shipping. Works everytime!


    Meanwhile all of us still waiting for two day prime shipping to arrive in two days instead of three days to a week later

    Just for the sake of the workers,

    I'm going to choose the slow shipment option.
    (I am not a cruel customer, I care about the people that work there.)

    Last-mile delivery services: Let's increase prices since Amazone have no other choice:=)
    Jeff Bezos: Let me just create Amazon flex. And I will pay 10k to anyone that quits their jobs and starts their own package firm.
    Last-mile delivery services: DEINCREASE PRICES NOW!

    You guys also should make a video about amazon how they stealing from the 3rd party sellers. How they ruin the people's businesses. How they tell sellers we are not going to disburse your hundreds of thousands dollars for 6-9 months or even most cases they say the will not pay back at all. This is an evil company and most people don't know it.

    It shows the people at the top are not bothered. When someone dies you don't say, "We are investigating to see what happens and plan to improve in the future." How do you not know how someone died?.. This is disappointing.

    Do Amazon workers know they are just 1 ROBOT AWAY from losing their jobs? Are they going to blame immigrants for losing their jobs to robots?

    Beware of Amazon Subscriptions fraudulent practices. They signed me up and charged my credit card to Amazon music by picking up the word "yes" on Alexa when looking for music on TVclip. I asked customer service why it was so easy to accidentally sign me up and not so easy to cancel in the same manner.
    The Agent said that's the way it was built and hung up.

    I applied to amazon in the past and I’m glad I didn’t go through with it past orientation. They watch every move you make and the bathroom break thing seems absolutely ridiculous to me. People peeing in bottles?! I’m assuming it’s mostly guys who are doing this because women we can barely aim a straight shot in a freakin bottle 😂

    Three years ago my dog ran out the front door when I opened it to retrieve my package. The nice fellow in his own car (a woman was with him) ran down the street to catch my dog for me. I was so grateful to him! That was above and beyond customer service.

    Looking at this video and I'm a prime member I'm very unhappy how they Treat The people that work for them . I don't need my packages in 1or 2 days if Someone can't go to the restroom. I'm rethinking about my prime membership with them.

    Amazon's move into 1 day shipping is just a rabbit hole. And a vicious cycle. Sure, amazon is able to drive down costs and maybe even make delivery time lower. But what about other competitors? In USA mega corporations appear because of government ignorance. Eventually business consolidation and too big to fail companies will run the politics of USA instead.

      99% of the time I do receive my packages in one day. On a couple of occasions I have received my packages later than the 1 day promised. One was for a new laptop and the other for a pair of 8 lb weights. Whoever delivers always leaves my packages in front of my apartment door and sends me a picture of the delivery. I have never had a package damaged or stolen. I am very satisfied with Amazon delivery.
