free shipping is included with the Kindle, whether you have Prime or not but i don't think it specifies anywhere how it'll be shipped.

i ordered mine on 12/19, it shipped UPS on 12/20, and i received it the evening of 12/22.  at the time i ordered it, they were guaranteeing arrival by 12/24 for Christmas, so i don't know if two-day UPS shipping is the usual thing or if it was a holiday special.

When I ordered mine, I used Prime 2 day shipping, but it came the very next day via UPS. Along with the (non-Amazon) case I ordered. I was so psyched!

I ordered with super saver shipping.  They sent UPS.  Since I selected super saver they didnt mail it out right away but they did deliver in line with their estimate.  A couple years ago i did think they were shipping faster if you chose super saver, now they seem to ship a little later if you chose that, but still within what the say they will do.

I just received mine through UPS. I also used super saver shipping. I ordered it on the 3rd and it arrived on the 11th.
