I just had an email to say that two items I ordered on Tuesday would be delivered today! (It's 21:19 local time, BTW) That's not bad - I know they are extra busy what with the lockdown, so an extra day isn't too bad at all.
But ... the items were delivered around 7 hours ago ... and they track the drivers to within meters for every delivery, so they normally report delivery in minutes via email.
I do hope they aren't using AWS - that wouldn't look at all good for it's expansion capability, would it?

Current circumstances aside, Amazon delivery is fairly good, but not as good as they think they are in my opinion.
Delivery slot? That will be between 7am and 10pm. DPD can text me in the morning to provide me with an estimated hour slot for their deliveries, which they have yet to miss. Amazon, how about a 3 hour slot which will help a bit?
"Amazon locker delivery will be made before 9pm". 8:55pm I get a text to say they will not be delivering today, just as I am pulling into the locker location.
...and the number of missed home deliveries (as in they fail to turn up) is countless. Yes, they usually extend prime for an extra month in return, but I have to contact them every time for this.
We have the same tradition in Norway: This piece has been broadcast every Dec. 23rd since 1980.
The history books tell that in 1992, by a mistake the play started 15 minutes earlier than announced. People who sat down to watch it at the announced time, discovering that it was already over, made furious phone calls to the broadcaster - there were so many complaints that it was set up for a rerun immediately after the last newscast of the night.
