Default B&N shipping leaves me wanting

Still don't have my tablet. I took advantage of the $25 MC credit which meant I had to have the device delivered even though I bought it via phone in a B&N with good stock (86th St NYC). No pick up in store available. The tablet finally shipped 2 days later than the published ship date from the B&N warehouse which is ~65mi from my home. I know this because it's less than a mile from my parents place in Jamesburg NJ. Now it's floating around a distro company named Argix, eventually ending up in the USPS (hopefully!). Best guess now is probably Tues or Wed. Maybe I've been spoiled by Amazon, Newegg, Zappos, etc, but even with "free shipping" I expect something that's warehoused less than a 100 mi from my doorstep to take a couple of days max, not weeks!

Word to the wise, unless there's a over riding reason buy in store!
The RULES, follow them and prosper!
