So you’ve ordered something from Amazon Prime, you’re told it will show up on Tuesday, you wait for the UPS Delivery Truck, and it goes right by. Amazon missed its estimated delivery date and they’ve quietly changed it to say it will be there Wednesday.
I used to have this happen a lot when I used to use Amazon Prime.
One time I ordered some drinks/snacks for a weekend party at work. I used Amazon Prime and it was supposed to show up on Saturday but didn’t show up until Monday. I was irked and finally complained to Amazon when I usually just let it slide. They gave me a free month of Amazon Prime. I googled and apparently it was well known among hardcore Amazon Prime users.
Amazon Prime Guarantees Your Delivery Date
Amazon guarantees their delivery dates, here is a link to their rules. Here’s a quote from that page:
Note: If you received free shipping through Amazon Prime, you may be eligible for a free one-month extension when the promised delivery date isn’t met. Prime Extensions are limited to one per free trial and 12 for an annual membership. Free Amazon Student Memberships do not qualify for this extension.
How to Get a Free Month of Prime When Your Package is Late
- Go to Amazon Prime Help
- On the left-hand side of the page you will see a button that says “Contact Us”, click it
- You are now given the option of receiving a phone call, emailing amazon, or live text chat.
- I recommend Phone or Text and to be very polite with them
- Tell them that your package is late, and ask to be compensated for the delay
They will most likely give you a free additional month of prime, a max of 12 per yearly membership. Sometimes I’ve even received a $5 or $10 credit in lieu of a month’s membership.
Have you ever been compensated by Amazon?
