I am not a Prime member as I feel that the amount of stuff I order does not justify the cost. I try to take advantage of their "free shipping" option over a certain dollar amount. But..... I just ordered some odds and ends from them and selected "free shipping". I get the email notice that they anticipate delivery in about 3 or 4 weeks and the stuff is in stock. Used to be you added a few days to the process. Now I believe Amazon is trying to push their customers to their prime membership for adequate service. Seriously thinking about dumping Amazon for future purchases as much as possible. What say you? The deal is that they simply don't process or fill the order and the "free shipping" is only a few days longer than several paid shipping options. Their checkout states shipping times "after the order is shipped".
