Amazon making up last week?

I just ordered a DVD from Amazon and found out it was shipped today via 1st class one business day. I swore I chose priority 3-7 business days for shipping. Is Amazon intentionally doing this to make up for their slow shipping last week?

I had the same thing happen to me, just randomly upgraded my shipping. Also what I like is if I order 2 items with different delivery dates (ie. 1 in stock, the other pre-order) I only get charged one shipping price.

My kids just got this email from Amazon.com.

Greetings from Amazon.com.

We thought you'd like to know that we shipped this portion of your order separately to give you the speediest service possible. Your remaining items will follow as soon as they're available. Despite the separate shipments, rest assured that your total shipping charges for this order will not exceed the amount we originally promised ($4.96).

The following items were included in this shipment:
Qty Item Price Shipped Subtotal
1 Here on Earth $24.49 1 $24.49
1 Reindeer Games $20.99 1 $20.99

Item Subtotal: $45.48
Shipping & Handling: $3.97
Total: $49.45

You have only been charged for the items sent in this shipment.
(Per our policy, you only pay for items when we ship them to you.)
The following items will ship separately, as soon as they're available:
Qty Item Price Not Yet Shipped
1 Elvis - One Night With You $17.49 1

This shipment was sent to:


via US Priority Mail (complimentary upgrade) 4 to 5 business days.

Unfortunately, this carrier does not provide tracking numbers.

Not sure if this is a complimentary upgrade since they always ship dvds to me and my kids Priority Mail.

NOTE: They just received this email from Amazon.com.

Hello from Amazon.com.

We are sorry to report that we are having difficulty obtaining an item in your order:

We will proceed with your order for this item.

Since our policy is to charge for items at the time of shipment, you have not been charged for this item at this time. Any other items you may have ordered that are already on hand will be shipping separately, and your total shipping charges will not be affected.
