I can understand when you select free shipping Amazon will pick the least expensive shipping method and that it will probably be slow. However, most of the time Amazon does not do their part by getting the order out the door in a timely manner and that to me is being punitive for selecting free shipping.
Three to four days before it even leaves the Amazon facility is unacceptable.
I will still use Amazon if a product is a lot less expensive but first I will check places like B and H Photo and if the price is close, I will order there instead. B and H's two day shipping on most items offering free shipping is fantastic.
Reason of review: Order processing issue.
