Default Amazon is fantastic!!

I ordered some stuff about a week ago. I was fully aware when I placed my order that it would take a month or two. The memory card wasn't a 'ships instantly' item, but I wasn't in a hurry so that was fine. I also ordered a bead book and a CD to make it enough to get free shipping. The earliest they said it may come is Jume 29. Guess what I got today (June 17)??!!! I am very pleased because even though I wasn't in a rush for it, I was kinda hoping that it would be here before Canada Day so I could snap pictures all day without worrying about running out of memory (no worries anymore, I can take 2478 pictures now!!!)
Hooray!!!!!
I think I'll play my new CD while I take pictures of my bead book as I flip through it deciding what I want to try first.....

Amazon.ca makes me very happy. I hope that amazon.com is as good for my American friends!

Wow! It's awesome that you got it before Canada Day!

It stinks when you have to be careful about what pictures you take because you might run out of card space. It's not much different than using film and only having 24 pics to a roll.

Amazon is definitely a great place to shop. I get used books from them, at a fraction of the price I would pay anywhere else.

Good going that you got your things in a timely manner.

Yup! Normally when I order things (that are in stock) I have my items within three days. Usually two. But for them to warn me that I won't get my items until anywhere between June 29 and July 23, then to get them in five days is amazing!

I haven't looked at my book yet. Life happened. But it is one that I borrowed from the library first so at least I know a bit about it. I've unwrapped the CD!

I've never bought the used items from them.

It kind of inspires me to work harder on my June craft of the month.

How so? So you can be amazing like amazon?
I still don't even know what I am doing for that. My aunt gave me a bit of an idea...

I'm working on mine. I think it might be a little iffy though. When I post it, I'll ask for everyone's opinion as to whether or not it should qualify.
