    We've place several orders for example on the 7th and they have still not shipped. Today is the 16th, and they are showing delivery estimate on the 18th (10 working days).

    Is this typical?

    I looked it up on Amazon and it says if I order tonight I can have it by Friday the 18th. Sounds like it was on backorder but they would have told you. My Amazon orders typically take less than a week unless the product is being shipped by a third party vendor, but not always - just depends what the item is.

    I usually get stuff on prime next day but I always buy whe n I can see the guaranteed delivery date. Can't say I've had an issue with Amazon. Lots of issues with the carriers though. Amazon always fixes it though.

    Have to echo everyone else and guess it is back ordered. All my Amazon shows up in 2 days with my Prime and less than 5 when I select the slow delivery.

    I ordered a bunch of stuff on Friday and everything was received by Tuesday afternoon. There is usually an indicator if something is not in stock that includes a date they expect it to be available. Further, before I finalized I received notifications that some of my items were available from different sellers at lower prices and Amazon automatically switched my carted item to the lesser expensive one.

    Hmm, maybe it is that we are not currently doing prime.

    I tend to try to order from Amazon (not another seller because returns are straightforward), and I'm sure it was in stock when we ordered it.

    I had another item that was in stock ordered on Dec.8th, but now is showing as not in stock. We received an email that said backordered with the option to cancel.
