    You might direct that question to the Mandolin Store.

    Free shipping is usually "ground" and takes ~7-10 days.

    If you're on pins and needles waiting for something, those ~7-10 days last approximately 1 Eternity...

    At my age, I look at it like this, I could be dead in 7-10 days. That is why I pay for next day shipping if it's a mandolin I'm buying. That way I might get a week's pleasure from it. Anything more is a gift.

    I purchased two mandolins at the same time a few years ago from the Mandolin Store. They were shipped the same day, the same way (FedEx.) One went through Texas and Tennessee, and arrived one day sooner than the one that (for some unknown reason) was sent through Missouri and Illinois to me in Ohio. Go figure. You have the idiosyncrasy of the shipping company to figure in. If my memory serves me correctly, the first one arrived in 5 days and the other one in 6 days (free shipping.)

    One of my neighbors works for the company whose shipping hardware Amazon uses. They figure the most efficient shipping route for each package, utilizing capacity to the best effect. So one package might be diverted to use excess capacity. The program does not know or care they are going to the same place.
