Griots Stuff on amazon?

anyone notice that there is alot of Griot stuff on Amazon, and is also amazon prime? Just a word of caution, I tried to get some wheel cleaner, and it still was going to take 6 days to get, even with amazon prime. Not sure what the deal is with that.

Generally happens when Amazon fulfills the orders but somewhere else ships it.

Yea, usually amazon is good about knowing how much they have in stock, etc. They did ship the squirter, they had that in stock. Oh well, try some meguiars stuff from autolandzonerallysnapa.

Well if it said 2 days then I agree you have a right to not be happy. I didn't know that information at first and just thought six days wasn't an unreasonable amount of time.

I never use amazon so I didn't know that. Seems like you'd be entitled to some compensation if the guarantee is breached..?

Yep they will give you something for waiting so long, either a discount or next day shipping on next purchase.

If it were me, I'd cut them some slack. I've waited almost three weeks from some vendors on here for something that was supposed to be in stock. Amazon is easily the best company I've ever dealt with. Their customer service is amazing and their free 2 day shipping on prime is great! Not to mention their daily deals are insane! Scored me some headers for my v6 for 60 bucks with free shipping. Cant beat that

I have waited before, and it was advertised that way, not 2 day guaranteed

They're also extremely slow on Meg's stuff, pads in particular. 2-4 weeks or so.

I believe griots is sold by some stores OTC now though.

Depending on how big your order is, many of the detail products vendors will give you free shipping as well. I've checked the price of stuff on Amazon against some of the vendors and found little to no difference in prices. It's always good to search for the best deal though.

Amazon?

I just drive about 30 minutes to the actual Griot's Garage.

:-)

it is nice to go there for a tech class to learn to use their products.

Ask them how to use their glass sealant. That stuff sucks tremendously.

Hope you have better luck than I did. Waste of money, straight to the garbage for me.

I do so much shopping on Amazon, it's amazing! 9/10 times they have items for the cheapest prices available. I have purchased clay and speed shine from them and it arrived in the advertised two days. Also purchased some of their thick blue MF towels, great products!

What were the towels you bought? Were they as good as the Rethiuckulous towel from DI?

They shipped me a replacement for the late stuff and it will be here today, no charge. Good customer service.

These were the towels that came with the speed shine kit. They have been great for general MF use as well, not just with detail sprays. I love using them with Adam's detail spray as well, though Griot's Garage speed shine is a good product as well IMO.

I bought mine from Advance Auto Parts. They had a 50% off coupon when you spend $100 and free local pickup (of course). Not $50 off your next purchase, 50% off. I bought 2 gallons of spray on wax and 2 gallons of speed shine. Looks like good stuff so far.
