Ordering from Amazon.ca

On Monday I ordered a couple of CD’s and a book from Amazon.ca. Wednesday evening I finally got confirmation that the order was being shipped…now today I track it, and it has apparently arrived in Mississauga last night at 7:48pm. Since Mississauga is only an hour away from Toronto, it will probably make it to my house within the week!

Seriously though, I don’t think I’ll ever order from them again. I originally did because I had a $5.00 coupon, and Chapters.ca doesn’t carry CD’s. Having gone through the experience once with both companies, I have to say that Chapters is amazing compared to Amazon’s adequete service. When I ordered from Chapters.ca, within an hour the package was processed, and sent to UPS. I had my book within a day of ordering it, which was pretty amazing, and gave me “warm fuzzies” for Chapters. I’ll get my CD’s in stores from now on, and continue to order books online (it’s quite a bit cheaper).
