Amazon's Relationship With USPS
« on: June 28, 2015, 12:54:36 PM »
I have a delivery from Amazon scheduled for today... Sunday.  I thought it was odd, so I started Googling.
Apparently, I live under a rock... I had NO idea.  I doubt it is possible...but if I can say NO to Amazon, concerning a Sunday delivery... I will.

Honestly. I think some of us can be forgiven for "living under a rock." I had no idea either, but I'm not a PRIME member, so I don't think I have to worry about Sunday deliveries. Maybe I do, but I'll watch for it and change days.

Honestly, I use Amazon so little, it's just not worth it to me to become "Prime."

I signed up for the Prime trial period.  I wanted to see if streaming movies would be worth it.  The super fast shipping was just an added benefit.  lol   I detest shopping, so if something can be purchased online... I'm all over it!

It IS possible to say no to weekend deliveries!  :)

I shop almost exclusively at Amazon now. But I use a PO Box. No Sunday deliveries for me, LOL!

I would hate that.

I don't want Sunday delivery because the USPS employees are being worked TO DEATH to pull off the "marriage" between Amazon and USPS.
