Anyone who owns stock in Amazon I'd like to personally apologize for probably significantly eating into your profit margins.

See, I have Prime, and especially before the sales tax thing kicked in for California, I used to buy pretty much everything through the mothership if I didn't need it that day.

Why? Free 2 day shipping and usually pretty competitive prices. Cheaper than paying tax and gas and wasting an hour running errands.

So if I needed something, I bought it on 2-day. Thing is, I wouldn't aggregate my purchases like if I was doing super saver shipping or paying shipping. I'd buy one or two cheap-ass items and 2-day it to my house. I have recycled so much amazon cardboard that I can't even begin to imagine how much it is and I don't even want to think about how much postage I've saved. I know Amazon gets discounts, but we're talking thousands of dollars at least. So much so that I've noticed that they're slowing down my purchase shipments now. I bought an RV switch for 8 bucks and shipping was at least 2 bucks, and instead of it taking 2 days, it took a week. Anything over 25 bucks I've noticed is still on 2-day... usually... but they don't jump on the shipping like they used to. I imagine because of asshats like me raping Prime for all it's worth. Best goddamn 80 bucks I ever spent online. Half of my teardrop trailer is Amazon purchased, pieces at a time, and I must have saved as I said a couple thousand dollars in shipping.
