Reason #78 why I love Amazon…..

They like to surprise me!

So about a month ago I placed an order for some pre-order items on We ordered 4 different items that all had four different release dates. Since we got free shipping and handling on everything we ordered we decided to be patient and take the option where you ship everything together, instead of the option where you ship things as they become available but pay S&H on each order.

Our entire order was suppose to ship on May 13 but to my surprise about a week ago I got an email saying that one of my items was available and they were going to ship it for no extra charge! YAY!! Then today I got an email that said another one of our items was available and they wanted to ship THAT one as well to us free of charge – double bonus!!

Oh Amazon, you just keep on surprising me even after all these years!


  1. I <3 Amazon.

    Wow, did I really just type "<3"? I swear I've never done that before.

  2. I love Amazon, as well. I buy all of my books from them, and I have a subscription for toothbrush heads through them. That's right, toothbrush heads. Every few months, they automatically send us new Sonicare toothbrush heads, and that's my cue that it's time to change them. I would honestly forget otherwise. Hygiene is not my forte. Plus, I save about $7 per shipment by ordering them this way.

  3. Amazon is awesome! I just placed an order from them today.

  4. I agree. Amazon is fantastic. They're my "go to" online shopping place given my location, for when I need to buy several people gifts to be sent to several different addresses. Seriously, I think they're great.

    I believe the majority of my Christmas shopping occurred on that site...

    I never use Amazon but I just might start. Nice marketing!

  6. I am an Amazon shopper, but I usually wait to get stuff that's on pre-order until it's really ready because I don't want to hold up my order.

    Based on this post, I ordered the Across the Universe soundtrack, Mudcrutch (both ready) and Foxboro Hot Tubs (not ready) to see what would happen ...

    Across the Universe and Mudcrutch have shipped! At no extra charge! Woo-hoo!

    Thanks for the PSA!
