    Why don't you wait until tomorrow to inquire? Seems kind of silly to complain about a Monday delivery on Sunday.

    Its a little premature to complain about its late shipping when they have time to make the estimate.

    Amazon is good with its shipping estimates so don't get too worked up

    Really? There's no feasible way? What qualifies you to make that statement, out of curiosity? Amazon has distribution centers all over the US, including South Carolina.

    I would wait until Monday. The status could be wrong and the package could be in-transit.

    Worst case you don't get it Monday then call to get your shipping charges refunded.

    FedEx (ground and express, anyway) and UPS move the vast majority of their weekend shipments on Sunday, late afternoon through early Monday am. The fleets are virtually at a standstill for most of the day on Saturday.

    Sure they are. Lots of things can be done when you have a multi-million dollar shipping contract, like the one Amazon has.

    Amazon stated one day shipping on an in stock item, three days later, 9 apologies, three phone calls, refund of the shipping and a little something for my time.
    I said to the customer service rep, I understand there was a snafu. It happens.
    I asked nicely. Now that the item is actually shipping can you note my account to please stop bothering me?

    She laughed and gave me a free kindle book.

    My money is on amazon as well, for a Tuesday delivery.

    There have been many times where Amazon sent out my shipment notice Sunday night and it's out for delivery at 6AM on Monday, even when I go with two day shipping.

    I've only had ONE incident in which one-day shipping didn't arrive but it wasn't Amazon's fault as it was the carrier's fault (Amazon shipped in time, carrier goofed).

    Amazon promptly refunded the next-day shipping fee though.

    And yes, my money is on Amazon getting it to you tomorrow.

    I am an Amazon Prime member and ordered a Marantz A-V receiver about a year ago--free 2-day shipping with Prime. I ordered it on a Saturday with delivery for Tuesday. Sunday comes--shipping soon. Monday comes--shipping soon. About 6PM Monday night I see--shipped. Amazon shipped it FedEx one day express delivery and I had it before noon on Tuesday--enough said.

    I've had packages leave their origin (3-4 time zones away from me) and they got delivered to my doorstep on the same day they were packaged.

    I don't know how they do it, but it's freaking impressive.
    My money is on Amazon too.

    BTW: shipping updates and tracking are mostly not accurate. it takes time for their systems to work

    Talk is cheap, and probably auto-generated as well. :p

    so you'll get it tomorrow and they'll probably refund your shipping. there are bigger tragedies in life.
