Amazon’s Holiday Delivery Calendar — Check When is Your Last Day to Order!

Amazon's Holiday Delivery Calendar -- Check When is Your Last Day to Order!

It’s the 18th right now which means a week until the big holiday. I just spent the evening going through all the gifts I had making sure I didn’t have too many for any sibling and making sure I had some nice stuff for my step-Mom and Father. So glad I did because according to Amazon’s Holiday Delivery calendar it doesn’t look like there’s too much time to get those last minute orders in!

Tomorrow Monday 19th – Last day for Standard shipping (this is FREE shipping on lots of non-prime items that ship in 5 days!)

Thursday December 22nd – Last day for Two Day Prime Shipping on millions of items which are going FAST!

Friday December 23rd – Last day for FREE One Day Shipping on about a million items in many cities

Saturday December 24th – Last day for Same Day shipping!

Sunday December 25th – Last minute gifts – give the gift of Prime? Also historically every Christmas we get a deal on videos, music, books and everything you can enjoy on a Kindle so these make great last minute deals for Kindle owners.

Amazon bans incentivized reviews tied to free or discounted products

Amazon Packages

I thought this news was pretty interesting. Remember those websites you can use to get discounted products in return for reviews? Well they will soon be a thing of the past… Amazon announced today that these sites will no longer be allowed to offer discounted or free products for reviews. I think this is a great move.

Here’s what Amazon said in their latest blog post:

Today, we updated the community guidelines to prohibit incentivized reviews unless they are facilitated through the Amazon Vine program. We launched Vine several years ago to carefully facilitate these kinds of reviews and have been happy with feedback from customers and vendors.

According to Tech Crunch:

In general, shoppers have begun to distrust these reviews because they believe them to be biased. That’s not just a “feeling,” as it turns out – a recent study of over 7 million reviews indicated that the average rating for products with incentivized reviews was higher than non-incentivized ones. (That is, a 4.74 average rating versus a 4.36 average rating, out of 5 stars).

Even with this 0.38 star difference, the impact was substantial – boosting products from the 54th percentile to the 94th percentile. Effectively, incentivized reviews could create top-rated products.

The study also found that incentivized reviewers were 12 times less likely to give a 1-star rating than non-incentivized reviews, and almost 4 times less likely to leave a critical review in general.

Technically, these reviewers are not compensated with cash, but writing reviews has become a windfall of sorts. Those who participate in incentivized reviews have written an average of 232 reviews, the study indicated, while those who have not, only wrote an average of 31 reviews. That’s a lot of free and discounted products for these ‘non-compensated’ reviewers!

Amazon Prime membership will likely be discounted to $68 this Friday!

Amazon Packages

According to an AFTV News article, Amazon will likely be offering a discount sign up for Prime Membership on Friday. If you’ve been thinking about becoming a Prime Member or know someone who complains about how expensive Prime is you may want to let them know about this sale.

I’ve paid $99 for my Prime Membership and you guys see how many discounts I find daily. The membership has paid for itself about 6 times over this year alone!

Amazon has fallen into the habit of discounting the price of Prime membership to celebrate award show wins. They dropped the price of Prime to $72 after winning at the 72nd Golden Globes, to $67 after winning at the 67th Emmys, and to $73 after winning at the 73rd Golden Globes. Amazon just won 6 Emmy awards at the 68th Emmys, so there’s a good chance they’ll be discounting Prime membership to $68 very soon.

The sale usually happens the Friday that follows the award show and lasts only one day. So if you’ve been thinking of signing up for Prime, or giving a year of Prime membership as a gift to someone, mark your calendar and wait until this Friday. These award show discounts are usually the only time the price of Prime membership is ever reduced.

Amazon Leases 40 New Airplanes, Brands them “Prime Air”

Amazon Buys 40 New Airplanes, Brands them "Prime Air"

In an effort to streamline delivery and perhaps even cut out the middleman, Amazon leased 40 new airplanes and branded them “Amazon Prime Air“. While these aren’t quite the drones Amazon was working on for their Prime Air program, hopefully these new planes will cut down on delivery time and costs. 🙂 Don’t be surprised if you see these planes in the wild.

From the article here:

Amazon’s shipping costs have been rising more quickly than sales, and having its own cargo fleet could help stem the rise. Amazon said last month its second-quarter shipping expenses rose 44% to $3.36 billion, while sales rose 31%.

Notably, the Prime Air designation has been used until now for Amazon’s nascent drone delivery program. Prime refers to Amazon’s $99-per-year unlimited two-day shipping program.

Amazon was expected to put the plane on public display on Friday at the Boeing Seafair Air Show in its hometown of Seattle.
