does anyone subscribe to amazon prime? does it help getting your orders get here faster? would appreciate your reply. i don't want to pay for membership and not being able to maximize it. thanks!

I don't really see the need for prime. I get my orders pretty quickly. I love Amazon.

I agree with ash-uh-ley. If something is shipped priority, it gets here in about a week. I don't know how else they could ship it to get it here faster. I saw in the other post that you were looking to buy textbooks. Don't order anything unless you're sure they will ship it priority. Things shipped directly from Amazon get here quickly, but when they ship from other companies or private sellers (which most textbooks do) they can take some time. I had to wait months for books when I first got here and didn't know how long regular mail could take. I ended up having to re-order the books to my parents house and have them ship them to me, and then return the books that I had originally ordered.

Thanks! Yes, I need books to get here ASAP that's why I'm considering prime. If they can't really do it in 2 days then, then prime does not really work. Ok, will check they do it priority. Thanks again!!!

I get all of my amazon stuff in a timely fashion. I always use super saver shipping too.

Boone- anything that you can get super saver shipping with usually ships directly through Amazon and gets here quickly. When people/companies sell things on Amazon, they don't always ship priority. Those things usually aren't eligible for the super saver shipping.

Boone- anything that you can get super saver shipping with usually ships directly through Amazon and gets here quickly. When people/companies sell things on Amazon, they don't always ship priority. Those things usually aren't eligible for the super saver shipping I don't buy anything anymore, unless it is shipped/fulfilled by Amazon.

Learned that lesson the hardway. We ordered a television series about a month and a half ago through a seller on amazon. Received an email like 2 days after purchase stating it was shipped and still have not received it.

I don't buy anything anymore, unless it is shipped/fulfilled by Amazon. You don't want to wait more days?

If they can't really do it in 2 days then, then prime does not really work. Well if you were in the States, it probably would get there in 2 days. However, the quickest I've ever received anything here is probably 5-7 days. And a lot of the sellers on Amazon don't seem to ship Priority so I would buy directly from Amazon or check out eBay and see if the seller will ship Priority. 

SemperFiChic --- 10 years ago -

I don't buy anything anymore, unless it is shipped/fulfilled by Amazon. This for me too! 

Ash-Uh-Ley! --- 10 years ago -

I don't buy anything anymore, unless it is shipped/fulfilled by Amazon. You don't want to wait more days?  That was Ebay, and still the most awesome email I have every got.

I always used amazon prime for the free shipping, but if you're using the free trial one and decide it's not for you be sure to cancel it. 

Loved living in Oki --- 10 years ago -

That was Ebay But it really works in every situation.
