View Full Version : I think I hate Amazon.

On February 16th, I preordered Princess and the Frog.

I was sure (though wasn't told) that I would get it on the day of release, as I had with the Harry Potter Amazon preorders.

I live within 3 hours of two different Amazon distribution centers (both in Kentucky).

I was told that my order shipped on Monday.

It is now Thursday.

Suffice to say I am very pissed off, as I have never had a bad order from them in the three years I've had an account.

If it's not here by Saturday, I will be emailing someone.

You've never had a bad order in three years of service, and this one screw up caused you to hate Amazon? I guess it's true when they say customers are fickle.

Heheheh.

:p

I just really want my movie. :p And to be fair, I did say 'I think'. ;)

Personally, I've never found it necessary to pre-order anything that's wide release. I've always gone to the appropriate store on the release date, and they've had plenty.

Well, except for three particular movies, that is... Those I pre-ordered, then stood in line at midnight to pick up. :D

Hope you get your movie soon, PN.

It just got mailed out today. :faint:

Won't be here 'til the 22nd.

The last time I pre-ordered anything from them, the same thing has happened. They've shipped it to me on the date of release instead of my receiving it. I just don't pre-order from them anymore. Now I do the same as Yeshanu - I just go somewhere and pick it up on the day of release. I've never had a problem doing it that way.

Remember - when you preorder/and or/ get stuff with the free shipping, they do it fourth class mail, so that can take 7-14 days

The thing is, I'm ranting more about the fact that I live 3 hours away from a distribution center and they spend a week getting it to me.

It's a really, really disappointing movie.

In a perfect world, all internet companies would work like Zappos. I am in Washington. They ship from Kentucky. If I order from them this morning, I will have a package sitting on my porch by noon tomorrow. It's like magic.

Amazon is great for many things, but not for pre-orders.


*runs off to order more shoes from Zappos*

It could be that it's spending a week in some mammoth postal distribution centre. That's usually what happens in Canada, anyhow... :tongue
