Hi anyone experiencing expected delivery date issues with Amazon?

I'm a Prime member and since Monday everything has a "get it by Thursday, 4 Dec" expected delivery on it.

For example ordered Guardians of the Galaxy Blu Ray on Monday, technically speaking should be delivered Tuesday but is expected Thursday.. No worries don't need it straight away... But since have been on Amazon searching of other things and they've all got 2 or 3 days from search date.

Strange behavior, I'v not seen one item yet that would dispatch for next day. I mean, that's the point in Prime anyway.

Just wondering if anyone else has had this issue. I've spoken to Amazon via the chat and they simply said "for all the examples I provided these items are eligible for dispatch until Thursday. I'm think how can all these items be eligible for next day.

Anyway, anyone other Prime members noticed this?

Regards

yep

glad I'm using atrial and not paying

Same here, ordered on Sunday and estimated delivery date on Wednesday. I thought it was just me and what's the point of having prime then?

I ordered the Harry Potter deal of the day last night and it said expected delivery date Thursday, but it was despatched earlier on in the afternoon today and will be delivered tomorrow. Same happened with few things I bought on Friday, said delivery on Sunday but everything was delivered on Saturday. I think they are adding an extra day to cover their backs in case it doesn't get to you in time due to the amount of orders they received.

Mine said Thursday
But was dispatch today

I've had a good record with Prime but these few days leading to Christmas has got them scared and its not business as usual.
#6
no problem if they are late call them up/ open a chat and they'll give you an extra month

I have had the same problem. Did an online chat with them and they said Prime is not guaranteed next day. I suggested that Prime members should get priority as they pay upfront for their deliveries and they said all customers orders are picked in the order they are received. What is the point of having Prime when the time of year you want it the most they cannot provide it.

They only do that if it arrives later than they say. We are talking about 3 - 4 day delivery time and not next day delivery as it should be.

Had 4 deliveries today.. 2 from Amazon and 2 from Yodel. Chatted to them and said it was crazy
for them this week because of the black friday and weekend offers.

I ordered a printer yesterday, expected delivery with prime on Thursday, came today(Tuesday)

Ordered something on Tuesday, was due to come Thursday but apparently it's coming tomorrow.

It's just a precaution to keep them covered, wouldn't be to happy to receive it on Thursday.

Fair enough, my Guardians (ordered Monday) has just been dispatched and will arrive tomorrow. Still unsure of if its truly next day but see how it goes next week. Thanks for the replies folks.

I ordered 3 items on free (slow ) delivery on Monday, they arrived the next day, yet another item ordered the day before is still awaiting despatch.

So they certainly are not sending stuff out in sequence.
