After shopping Amazon half a dozen times, I've discovered that it's best to select a week or two free delivery and wait for the goods. As often as not, the order arrives quickly and freight free.
This morning I went to Amazon to check on the progress of my order and Shazam, it was out for delivery. Amazon had posted a map showing the locations of my apartment, a red dot and the delivery truck, a green dot. Every few seconds, the green dot moved and a minute after both dots touched, my inker was delivered. I had received my order, freight free, in less than 48 hours.
It's no wonder that brick and mortar retail is in trouble and that Jeff Bezos is probably the wealthiest man who ever lived.
