I hate to admit it, but Amazon is loving essential in my household. But the thing that irritates me is that we will typically make a weekly order on Monday, grouping everything into one lot. If it isn't anything urgent, we will say it can all be shipped together in an attempt to keep people needing to do twenty-eight picks shipped in just as many packages.

But no matter what, it will end up being broken into a billion smaller orders delivered every day of the week.

(We do recycle every single box through Ebay, at least.)

Happens to me, too, and it's also annoying when they ship tiny, durable things in a large box when they could easily go in one of their recyclable padded mailers.

This is me but Walmart+. The rona ran through my house in January and for those 3-4 weeks, we had to do delivery groceries. I signed up for the free trial of W+. It was incredible to just have your groceries dropped on your porch without having to worry about ever stepping foot inside a grocery store ever. This is huge if you have small kids. We kept the subscription going after rona passed and we do an order probably every 7 days. Thereís 7 of us in the house so we go through an ungodly amount of fresh fruits and veggies.

For $100/year (plus tip for driver for each delivery), itís amazing for large families. Taking toddlers to the grocery store is a chore and it saves so much time.

Works even better if you get their Capital One CC that gives you 5% cash back.

We also have a lot of household goods (diapers, wipes, etc) on Amazon subscribe and save (with Amazon CC for 5% cash back as well) for the other stuff thatís cheaper on Amazon.

Might be they're out of or backordered on all the more profitable/popular gun stuff, and gotta make payroll somehow.

Perps were uncooperative.




I suspect Walker is trying to clear out old stock of less popular models for new 2021 stuff coming out since their website is showing a lot of new 2021 products. Their flagship/primary model, Razor Slims aren't on sell so I just assume that's what's going down.

Yep this is my thought too although the old stock has been on sale for a while now. Some of their new stock descriptions are kinda cryptic as to whatís new or better.

Oh same, it just seemed like a long running sale just to be clearing out stock so I wondered.

Super cheap. Coupon is multi-use. This is a price mistake.

Anyone need 5x Stainless Steel Gardening Snips w/ 1.75" blades?
https://www.homedepot.com/p/Corona-1-75-in-Stainless-Steel-Long-Straight-Snips-AG-4930SS/205370241
Add 5 to cart and the price drops to $15, or $3 a piece.

That deal would belong in the weed thread if they were teflon or titanium coated blades.

Trimming with stainless steel is fine, but the blades gum up faster than coated.

My friend's stool order shipped; 5 stools. Another goon has store pickup on some cabinets and I do too but those may still get cancelled, and others have received cancellation notices on other orders.

Here's hoping we get some new cabinets!

I mentioned on discord that in retrospect I wish I bit the bullet and paid $55 to ship four of them home.

I ordered 2, as separate transactions. The 2nd was canceled, the first says it's already on the way to my local store. Fingers crossed.

Mine haven't been canceled yet but the ship-to-store date is April 27th and everyone else orders have been canceled so I'm not holding my breath.
