Does Amazon deliver?

I was on Amazon yesterday and bought an item. On the delivery options it said guaranteed delivery tomorrow to a residential house. So I took up that option.

As Amazon is in South Melbourne and I am in Sydney I thought geez they back themselves.

I checked the item at 1pm and it still says preparing for shipping. So in a few hours they claim to ship it from their warehouse, presumably fly it on an airplane and then sort it at airport and then have it couriered to my place. The guarantee is before 8pm.

Geez all the moon's need to align for that to happen.

I thought I'd open a live chat with them to question if they are going to deliver. They maintained they are on track for delivery tonight even though it had not been shipped yet.

I told them it's near impossible for them to ship it, get it on a plane, sort at the airport then have it driven out to my place tonight. They maintained they would get it done.

All for $12.75 extra? :grinning:

Are the amazon systems that great? If this was a game of golf they basically need 4 holes in one in the last four course holes to snatch the win.

Who's banking on Amazon and who's with blue boost calling their bluff

As at 2pm it's still not showing as shipped..

Now they need 5 holes in one from the remaining 5 course holes. At the moment blue boost is $1.05 that they won't deliver and Amazon is at $6.00 that they will deliver by 8pm.

Here's an idea, how about you stop looking at your screen like a child discovering internet porn for the first time in eager anticipation waiting for the shipped icon to show in all its glory?

At the moment they would need a sprinter capable of 100 metres in under 10 seconds to be set on the starting blocks, once my parcel is shipped hear a gun and be off and running. Have all plane tickets booked, be first off the plane with my parcel and then straight in a cab to my place to get this done.

It requires a perfect series of events for Amazon to win this one. Sort of like the kimmorley intercept for Matty Bowen to seal the game for QLD.. or that Dave Taylor pass when Souths beat the roosters on the buzzer.

Blue boost $1.04 they won't deliver
Amazon $6.50 to deliver..

I wonder if Eugene Bouchard is offering dates if Amazon gets home? She bet against Tom Brady and was out on a date with a dweeb

Once Amazon mark it out to courier, it's out of their hands. You said you checked the item out at 1pm, doesn't that mean that tomorrow is when you should receive your parcel?

As a side note... I recall I once ordered something to come to my place from Darwin. It took one freaking week for the item to be shipped out of Darwin. They probably only get cargo planes out of that city once a week.

Amazon are holding to their guns, package coming today by 8pm is their status.. but also shows shipped now..

Surely they can't make it happen, even Tom Brady couldn't get the job done here.

I'd have Amazon @81-1 on fixed odds!
Thats how confident I am that you aren't receiving the goods

4.27pm and status shows shipped and delivery on schedule for on or before 8pm tonight. They are doubling down on their position.

It's the 9th round and I've won every round convincingly. They need a lucky punch haymaker knockout to win this..

screenshot below of current status.. ordered 15 Jan... still holding onto 8pm delivery.. checked the tracking number of the courier and they have no record of the number yet. Can't be done today

Don't remind me of that interception.
That was the day I lost respect for NSW as a state.

The way everyone condemned Kimmorley for the pass.

I never played league professionally but did competitively.

We were always told to never put our team mates down when they are having a go.

If I was on the field that night I would of been the first to tell him keep your chin up!

Whoar!! its the 10th and last round...Amazon just landed a stiff all or nothing uppercut which really wobbled me. They have just changed their status just now (attached below).. Is it possible they get this done? They must have had a crisis meeting, torn strips off one another and bought in Tom Brady to make the impossible win... somehow possible.

Tab have amended the odds

Blue_Boost $1.55
Amazon $2.30

Im wobbly on my legs and may close off my street both ends to keep the couriers out. surely this wont turn up tonight..

It leaves Amazon Moorebank doesn’t it? Of course you will get it today. It’s like Bulldogs V Storm. You think you have it won but we can’t hold on and Storm win in the end. We got nothing on them. Just like you and Amazon
