Why would you rather shop at Amazon than Walmart?Also, I've complained before, but Amazon seems to have used covid as an excuse to gut amazon prime. At the start of covid they said they were going to prioritize essential items...and slowly all mention of 2-day shipping has disappeared.
In Chicago, where they had warehouses, I'd frequently get stuff in 1 day (sometimes even same day) delivered by amazon workers. So it was all fine.
But out here, my standard "Prime" shipping seems to be 1 week. Here's a random search for "usb cable":

Wtf am I paying for? I'd rather not shop at Walmart, but they will do free shipping on a ton of items, many with actual 2 day delivery.
Shoprunner is still around too (get it free from Amex) and they do free 2-day shipping from their stores.
I'm extra pissed because when I made the decision to move out here, still being able to get stuff in 2 days was a selling point--I may have limited local retail, but who cares when you can get everything 2 days later.
And its not like this is covid-related handling delays. They are straight up putting items on the slow boat and shipping standard UPS-ground. Even if they get it out of the warehouse day of order, unlikely to get it in 2 days.
