    It may be that with Prime, Amazon eats the shipping for frequent orders. I know we used to pay $200 to $300 just to ship Christmas presents to the grandchildren every year. Amazon Prime has been a Godsend for us. We don't have cable tv either, so Prime video helps out. Delivery by Amazon is much slower here than to other parts of the country (I don't know about Hawaii) but we are used to the delay. Amazon took over its own delivery here a while back with two planeloads arriving every week. It actually slowed deliveries for a awhile, but things seem to be back to where they were, so I don't know what changed. Many things are simply not deliverable here. I ordered a radio and it accepted the order, then got a notice a few days later that they "don't deliver outside the United States." Gotta love it. I ordered the same radio in the Seattle area when I was visiting the daughters, and received it overnight.

    As an aside, a friend here registered her daughter for Space Camp in Huntsville, AL and received and email that they were not accepting campers form Alaska or Hawaii. Reason unknown.

    Before we were married, my wife lived in New Mexico and she would sometimes be told that a company didn't deliver outside of the country.

    This stuff makes me wanna cry. I had a vendor once tell me he had stock in Texas and in California, and asked which was closest to Virginia. I told him it depended on whether his carrier only traveled east or only traveled west (I was not very nice.) He's now probably in charge of Amazon's shipping department.

    I only see 2 orders in there that shipped as quickly as my routine expectations. I'd be pi$$ed if I were paying for a Prime membership.

    Yes, and they came in the same box.
