Amazon Supersaver shipping – I’m impressed

When ordering from, I always choose the free Supersaver shipping option.

  1. I’m cheap.
  2. I’m not going to run out of things to do or books to read anytime soon, so I’m not in any hurry.
  3. Amazon Supersaver ships through the Unites States Postal Service. Since my postal person delivers to the house six days a week anyway, using Supersaver shipping is fuel efficient. In other words, Supersaver is super green.
  4. I’m cheap.

I ordered Avinash Kaushik’s book Web Analytics: An Hour a Day on Friday September 14th, and I already know that I’m going to like it.

The package from arrived today, Wednesday September 19th, in three business days. That is one more reason to use Amazon’s Supersaver, it is usually very fast. Especially when you consider that I live in Kentucky.

But, there are a few things that would probably surprise you about Kentucky. For example,’s main printing facility is located here in Louisville, Kentucky.

Full Disclosure: If you order the book using the link above, Amazon pays me a buck, more or less. This is an affiliate link. It doesn’t cost you anything extra, and I’m worth it. Be sure to order something in addition to this book, to get you over the $25 threshold for Amazon Supersaver, and select that as your shipping option. You save $10.20 over bookstore prices, if you can find this title in a bookstore, you get free delivery to your door, I make a dollar, and it is Super Green to boot.
