I'm hesitantly optimistic, but I expect to not buy much.  I've learned that without Prime Amazon is mostly useless for me :\

Yeah, I've never had anything ship FedEx from Amazon, I wouldn't worry too much. UPS should be the one sweating bullets.

Never had an amazon order come from Fedex.  Up till about 9 months ago always UPS.  Now it is always USPS and 2 days past the two day prime guarantee date.

Mail carrier service used depends where you live and cost to ship.

Hey, remember when we had someone that actually cared about CAG from Amazon?

Oh, man, the good times...

They're still around I'm sure. But what can you expect? We spoke with our wallets and went to BB so it doesn't make self for resources to go after us as aggressively anymore. They're prob still on sds watching all Amazon threads.

Amazon is a 5% cash back reward category for the Discover It card in july also.

Yup! The double cashback promo makes it a nice 10% (even though won't see the extra 5% for almost a year)

$50 this week at nebraska furniture mart, free shipping (standard 2-5 days)

I am so glad I came here to read the bitching about how these deals are going to suck. You made my day with this. I was bummed I missed the Groupon a couple of weeks ago for the same price. Now I will be able to play my PS4 in the other room.

Thanks again!

Our mailman is one of the worst examples of humanity I've ever encountered.  

 

I hope this sale is so good that I break his back. 

Ok I'll address the elephant in the room

 

Why so much animosity towards your mailman? lol

Probably because he ordered a Jigglypuff amiibo or some shit and when it didn't come in 1 day, he took out his unrealistic expectations out on the mail man

and usps,

And Ontrac....

 

Man I hate them, they pretty much toss the darned thing and run, my last order probably was damaged due to them, overall I would rather Amazon just use USPS even if it gets here slower.

He was featured in Chevy Chase's 'Funny Farm', though they had to use another actor for the scene where he pretended to be a decent person.  

 

In truth, it all started when one morning our mailbox door was ripped off.  I happened to be outside when he was delivering our mail and he said, "Fix your mailbox, please."  I said, "Okay" and thought...  "that's odd...  I wonder how it happened?"  

 

I loaded up the recorded footage for the day before from a security camera outside our house.  It showed the same bozo that just asked me to fix the mailbox kicking it and ripping the door off himself.   Then I went back to earlier recorded videos and saw that he liked to punch our packages a few times before he threw them up 10 stairs on to our porch.  

 

OK. 

 

The next day I stopped him while he was delivering mail and said, "I'd appreciate it if you would stop beating up our mailbox and throwing our packages.  I have you on video doing it."  He just looked up at me, slid his sunglasses down his nose, and with the lack of emotion of a serial killer said, "okay".  

 

Now he delivers beat up packages on the side door to our house where there is no security camera.  I'm here alone waiting to be robbed or killed right now as I type this.

OMG, are you serious? I thought my postal people where bad, they look like saints compared to this guy. When I was growing up in the 80's, postal shootings seemed to be the norm, and this guy sounds like he may be next on the list to "snap". You might want to get that video to the "Post Master", and get that guy locked up, he is obviously wound way to tight to be in a public service position.

The first and last sentences of my post are in jest, but the rest is sincere.  I've received a few PMs about this. I guess I just considered our delivery person bad at his job, but CAG may have convinced me that someone should be notified of this guy's behavior.  Thanks for the deals and the help with my personal life, CAG.  You da best.

You should go to your local post office, with the video in-hand, and speak with this guy's delivery supervisor to make a formal complaint.  That, and get another security camera for the side door.  Should be able to afford that with the money you've saved on CAG. ;)

Yeah, find the contact info for the postmaster for your area and give them the story and the video. And also explain that he is avoiding being filmed now.

Yes, and then move.  Move far away.  And whatever you do, DO NOT file the official "we're moving" packet with your local PO.  10% Movers Coupon be damned!
