Some Free-Shipping Offers Not So Free

from the all-you-do-is-complain... dept

The last few times I’ve ordered stuff from Amazon, I’ve used their free shipping option. It seems great. However, people are always looking for reasons to complain. Some people apparently weren’t all that happy with all the free shipping offers available online the past few months. They thought there were too many restrictions and ended up paying for shipping after being “lured” to the sites with promises of free shipping. I don’t really see how they have much of a right to complain, since it is a free thing, after all. Amazon, especially, makes the conditions very clear. The guy in the article who complained said it would take 2 extra days, but in my experience the free shipping still gets to me within a couple of days anyway.
