So the eTrex Venture finally arrived yesterday and I’ve got it all ready to ship back to Amazon.
Amazon seriously has the best return policy ever. As long as an item is unopened, you can pretty much return anything for any reason. And the best part is that THEY PAY for the return shipping! I filled out the return form on their site, it generated a printable UPS label for the package, I taped it on the box, and now all I have to do is drop it off at a mail store and not have to spend a cent of my own money.
I also think that Amazon really sucks at shipping orders in a timely fashion. If you choose their crappy free ‘super saver’ shipping or the next level up, they take like a day or three to actually ship your order.
However, if you spend a little more for ‘two day’ or ‘next day’ shipping, your order almost always gets shipped on the day that you place it.
I played it safe with two day shipping on the eTrex Legend, and I should have it in hand next Wednesday! Finally!
