Help me here - this is a charge of $12.72 for an item that is being shipped. How does this relate to a 3G iPad?
He asked for special treatment like Amazon Prime's deal and paid $12 for it. You get free second day with Amazon Prime but for $4.00 extra they will ship next day. With that option I always get items in less than 23 hours from the instant I order.
I once ordered a heavy UPS after one of mine failed around 3 PM at my residential office. I followed the expedited order and it was flown from Texas to near Chicago then to Hartsfield in Atlanta, trucked pass my house late the next morning to Roswell GA and then a note that it was out for delivery by 10 AM. I had it at noon. They spent more money in jet fuel getting that UPS into the air twice than UPS made from my $4 surcharge. Such is the marvel of our modern day express shipping system which has advanced beyond the Wells Fargo Express shipments of a century ago.
I boggles my mind that an item can now leave China and be at your office or home in much less than a week or next day for $12!
There's no apple iPad 3g listed in the Amazon store that I can find. WiFi, yes.
