Good question.

Amazon says the credit will be applied when the order ships.

I just had a No Rush order, that supposedly got me a $1 ebook credit, and it has shipped as of today, but no credit yet for me.

I'll give it 24 hours or so, but a contact with Amazon Customer Service may be in order.
I waited the 24 hours, and still no email such as I had previously been getting for the Video credits, and no reflection anywhere on my account of any promo credit. The video credits previously offered for no-rush shipping had always applied automatically and I would get an email saying I had a promotional credit and "click here for T&C" and telling me when it would expire etc. I think the software update that was supposed to go along with the change over to a kindle/book credit may have some pieces that need to be applied or reapplied, because this time it was certainly not "automatic".

I clicked Help and Get Help by Phone and they called me. It wasn't a particularly quick call, but it did end with me getting a credit applied to my account.

If you are still waiting and your purchase has shipped it may be worthwhile contacting customer service. (worth $1, at any rate).

I received my email that the credit was applied to my account, but I don't see it and the email doesn't tell me where to look. It just says that when I buy a book it will be applied. That's what I hate about 1click - I have no way of knowing how much I have paid until after I pay.

In the past I've gone to this page and clicked on check your balance to see a credit but it's not there - is there somewhere other than this page to see your balance - http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.htm...=1000811661#gc

I swear every time I complain on here someone from Amazon is listening and knows who I am. This morning I was shocked to see both my packages upgraded and will be here tomorrow.

Last time I said something like this on here my packages for that week all came early.

Well whoever you are THANK YOU!!

Especially since there are times with Prime that I still have it take like 5 days to get to me. If I order something on Wednesday night or later, I don't plan on getting it till the next week.

I placed an order last night, and it said that the $1 credit will go to either a book or an eBook.

I gave this a try with 2 small orders, stuff I didn't need right away. I won't be doing that again. I ordered the times in separate orders on the 17th. Today is the 24th. It has been in preparing for shipping since 3 days ago. Noting moved.

I get that this way means slower shipping, but this is ridiculous.

I don't find it surprising. Before I was a Prime member, it often took 2-3 weeks before I received an order.

"Please allow 4-6 weeks for delivery" is still ingrained in my brain from my youth. Anything in the 1-6 day range is still pretty darn amazing to me. So when I explicitly tell someone to "take their time" with my order ... it's because I simply don't care how long it takes. The dollar is just a bonus. Anything in that week to 10 days range is fine by me.

2-3 weeks? Was this for in stock items?

well I have to say thank you all for your sacrifices on the shipping it has improved my Prime times to normal 2 days. I am getting my orders now in two days instead of four. I guess they were overwhelmed but it seems offering ebook credit fixed that.

Yes. Household items. Books. DVDs. The long wait times were what finally got me to purchase a Prime Membership.

The long wait times, rather than causing me to give Amazon MORE money, caused me to switch my physical book purchases over to Barnes & Noble. Around here, BN ships much faster.

This.

The 2-day shipping is the main reason I'm a prime member, a buck isn't enough incentive for me to give it up.

As to the shipping times, I rarely have issues with getting the 2 day shipments in time, but the last couple times I've paid for next day shipping, the order didn't arrive on time and I had to contact Amazon for credit.

I aim to please.

I am still in prepared for shipping. 8 days now. And of course one of the orders was the cover for my Nexus you recommended. I read on the thing naked since I got it, so I didn't need it fast. But holy moly, I didn't know they still have make the thing.

Delivery estimate: Thursday, September 25, 2014 - Monday, September 29, 2014 by 8pm
I also ordered something yesterday with Prime and I hoped it would ship with it, but no. Funny thing is the delivery estimate has today's date and it still hasn't shipped.
