    Pfft!! No, there is no advantage. If you compare prices, USA Amazon is usually far less expensive, including exchange.

      That’s odd could not find the same 4 Jaw on Amazon cheaper than Amazon.ca,at $25.08 cdn. that’s under $20 US.

        Same here. See, my wife Bronwyn works a good 40+hr work week. She doesnt have the time to go to town to get what she purchases. I also go to town for other items.

        And if you folks have been following. We dont have loose cash falling out of our pockets. I look for the least expensive protein to feed our family.

        Chickin is it these days. I am glad we like chichin. Just bought a two pack of whole fat hens. Ill bone them out and make four diff dishes. JR

          Yes I have a few complaints about Amazon, especially the Prime delivery. But I have gotten stuff from them that the local folks just shrug their shoulders or have No idea what you want!! How in the hell is it Amazons or anyone's problem that its stolen off your porch!! If you live in that type of neighbor hood then set up a locked box and give the combination to the delivery person. Gee whiz people, think.

            I have had good luck with both Amazon and eBay. I'll shop on Amazon, and then check prices on eBay and just a general search once I find what I'm looking for a do a cost/benefit analysis on where to purchase. I have Prime and an Amazon CC, so the cash-back also enters into the decision. There have been a couple of instances over the years when Amazon reports that an item has arrived at a facility, but then gets lost so I cancel and re-order. If something is coming from China on Amazon, I can usually get it a) faster and b) sooner off eBay.

            If I have a real issue with Amazon, I work my way through their online customer support to get to the screen where they will call you, and work it out.

            The only problem of note I have had on eBay is on a recent order that was coming from China: PTFE 15mm ID x 22mm OD washers (only locally available were 14mm or 16mm ID). I got a tracking number and an automatic email from the Seller that they were shipped, but then two days later a new message saying that they weren't available. After a couple of message exchanges, the Seller told me that the parts were located in Shanghai and the latest shutdown had blocked the shipment. The washers weren't for an immediate need, so no big deal — the Seller cancelled the order, PayPal gave me my money back and the Seller says they will contact me once the item can the shipped so I can re-order.

            Delivery times from China and India have been very good (one supplier I deal with in India ships FedEx at no additional charge, so I get things sooner than if they were coming from the west coast). USPS delivery times have also improved, to the point where I am getting 1st class packages from Washington state sooner than "2-day priority."

              Or have it sent to an Amazon locker.

Whether it falls of a truck, gets pilfered at the depot or stolen off of a doorstep it is up to Amazon to see it put in my hand before it is considered delivered. Leaving a package on a doorstep where it can sit for hours until someone gets home is not a secure acceptable solution to their cost cutting. That just leads to the situation that you already described. If you/they/Amazon enable the criminal element then your just as guilty as the guy that steals it.
                I can see now why you got the handle of Loose nut. So, if you sell a tool to someone and it get stolen from that person, it's still your fault??

                  If something is late I always go to amazon chat and they will usually give me a credit for being late for the item or send me another and let me keep the one that comes late.

                  I did order a nice Glass Lian-Li computer case last year. Hear a noise at my front door, open it to find the case. Seconds later I get an email from amazon that says they item was undeliverable and I would be receiving a refund, which I did. Free computer case!
