Not me. If anything, I've had more take just 1 day instead of 2...

The frustrating thing is that the item I ordered currently shows free one-day shipping. So an order placed today would get here before the one I placed on Sunday which is currently scheduled to be delivered Thursday. Tempted to try it and just return the other one.

I usually explicitly ask for slower shipping (if they give me the option), because it usually comes along with some credit I can spend on something else.

As I check my PO Box only once a week, I don't order stuff I need rapidly.

If you go to customer service and complain about how your package is taking more than two days to deliver even though you have prime, Amazon will usually extend your Prime membership by a month or give you another benefit.

Usually they only do this for the "guaranteed by" stuff.
