So people were still buying stuff online up until the beginning of the week for Christmas delivery. I dunno if its my bit of retail experience or just a good amount of common sense, but I would never try buying something online that I had to have in under 10 days.
"I'm frustrated because these items could have easily been purchased at various retailers in my area, something I would have gladly done had Amazon not 'guaranteed' their arrival before Christmas," said Mr. Scott, of Ann Arbor, Mich.
Amazon doesn't run the shipping company, or fix their planes, or control the weather, or physically double check that its in stock with you click order now, or make sure youre home to receive it. How could you believe their "guarantee" and think that's a safer bet than having something in your hands?
