5. Can't recall

ever choosing expedited shipping.

However, Mr Pipi and I have Amazon Prime, where you can get two day shipping for free on thousands of items. Yes, it's $79 per year, but we order so much from Amazon that the membership cost is more than covered halfway through the year by not having to pay shipping.

They're real good about that two day thing, too. Often my stuff has arrived in ONE day.

And with Prime membership you can get free streaming movies and TV shows on your computer, and if you have a Kindle you can borrow some books for free.

So anyway, as far as expedited shipping goes, like someone else said above, it all depends on where your item is coming from. If it's an off-Amazon site, it could take longer.

Or...like what happened to me one year, I had ordered stuff from someplace not Amazon related, for the grandkids, three weeks before Christmas. FedEx was supposed to be bringing it.

The driver, who does not like coming out this way, kept it on his truck and then dropped it off at my neighbor's house the day after Christmas. Great. I had nothing for the grandkids when we visited them on Christmas Eve, and had to stop at a store on the way there to pick up something quick.

I was furious, and wrote a scathing letter to the Corporate office with a copy to the local office. I don't recall getting a reply, but that driver doesn't play games with our deliveries anymore (he would claim that we were not home when we actually were home, since we are retired).

Often, it's the carrier, not the shipper.
