As a Non-Prime customer, I placed an order for 'in stock' items on a Monday and as of Friday late afternoon it still had not even shipped out yet. It appears Amazon holds orders for a week or so before shipping out.
Seems like a penalty to non-prime customers and crosses the line of ethical business behavior.
It's too bad to see this, as I have been a long time customer with many orders and also make decisions at work where to order supplies from. I'll be taking a break from Amazon for awhile after seeing that they intentionally hold orders - not cool & I'm not signing up for Prime!
