Amazon Prime delivery dates

Just recently I have noticed more and more items not being available for 1-day delivery, for example, today Friday I have looked at several items are now only available with much longer delivery times, such as "FREE Delivery by Wednesday" "
FREE delivery by Sunday, Jul 28"
FREE delivery by Tuesday, Jul 30"

Are Amazon in breach of their contract of "One day delivery with Amazon Prime"
What am I paying my £79 a year for?
I understand some items are shipped from abroad and will take longer but lately it's around 40% are now being offered longer delivery days than "one day".

    The only things that I have noticed that say delivery by Wednesday for example are non prime items but to be honest, when I search on Amazon I always tick prime items only on the left hand side so I have not come across your issue.

    and since i have Prime purely for the delivery aspect (dont use the rest) I agree with the OP that its a problem.

    I would concur, I didn't use Prime for anything other than the delivery aspect. After my year's membership I didn't renew, I found (even living in a major city with an Amazon depot) that some items I wanted weren't available "next day" and actually the delays didn't bother me.
