So I can get it immediately for $9.00, get it in 2 days for $8.00, or get it in three days for free. Doesn't it kind of seem like anyone who would wait 2 days to save a dollar would wait 24 hours to save $8.00?

Exactly, I love that. It's the middle option that I'll bet no one will ever choose.

The middle option makes the one day option seem like less gouging.

The shipping stays the same but you will end up paying more in storage fees while it awaits shipment, so the short answer is yes.

Ridiculous to you, but not to someone who is on a time deadline, needs something to keep a business or machine running, or just plain wants it on a certain day and can afford it. As they say, "It takes us all to keep the planet spinning."

To be clear, I went for the $9.00 option. I already have the damn thing. It's the $8.00 option I thought was funny.
