Voted hot! Bout time this came over here!
#3
what a waste of money when they offer free delivery for spends over £15
#4
So...express delivery on any item, for free (after paying this)? Does it work with One-Click ordering?
#5
Who I am to question super mod edi, who has saved me hundreds and hundreds of pounds on this site! But here goes...

Its not free, don't fall for the corporate bs that uses free and then means nothing of the sort! Its £49.

Aaaah - feels better to let off steam!!

what a waste of money this would be

Yeah, spend your money on express deliveries instead at £9 a time.. it soon adds up.
#7
it aint a waste of money if you buy a fair amount, I mean tbh, add up the tops ups you make £15 orders and it would pay for itself over the year...
#8
The amount of time they take posting my books off would make this worthwhile, I may just sign up myself.
#9
This is a good deal if you buy lots of smaller items often on Amazon. Just depends on how much you use Amazon as to if you would think this is a Hot Deal or not.

Also can you get the same day delivery if you do not have this type of account ?

Right, this is a bit mis-leading, it quotes the prices of six Express Deliveries, yet Express Deliveries are only half price (£4.49). Running a book through the checkout makes it to be £2.75, so you'd save the £2.75.. I shan't be signing up, as I only really order books and Super Saver is fine with me.

Having the option to combine four accounts could save some households (Mum, dad and two tenagers for example) a fair bit of money over the year.

If you use Amazon a fair bit I would think this is a good deal, especially if you are the impatient type:thumbsup: . If you don't use them much, or are happy with the current delivery speed and service then this isn't for you.

For me there has been quite a few occasions where Amazon have had a CD cheaper, but I have not ordered because I didn't want to wait until my order was over £15, and postage on top no longer made it cheapest.

Not sure I have ever paid Amazon for express delivery, I can usually wait a day or two for CDs/books and never trusted them for release-day games. SO not sure that in itself is a strong selling point for me.

Help for Amazon Prime and information about One-Day Delivery (applies only to eligible items otherwise they will be sent First Class instead).

Which items are eligible for Amazon Prime?

Most items eligible for Super Saver Delivery are also eligible for Amazon Prime delivery benefits. Gift certificates are not eligible for expedited delivery under Amazon Prime. Some items are excluded, including, for example, oversize or heavy items, items regulated as hazardous materials, and other items with special delivery characteristics. When an order is placed for a product that is not eligible for Amazon Prime, a delivery fee will be charged separately, and the total delivery fee should be confirmed on the Order Confirmation page.

Amazon Prime members are entitled to free One-Day delivery on all items marked as Amazon Prime eligible delivered to mainland United Kingdom locations and free First Class delivery on all items marked as Amazon Prime eligible delivered to all Other United Kingdom Locations (Shetland and Orkney Islands, portions of Perthshire and the Channel Islands and P.O. boxes or BFPO addresses).

An Amazon Prime membership is only available to end consumers using Amazon Prime for private use and is not available for Corporate Accounts, legal entities or for customers who purchase items for business or institutional use or for the purpose of resale.

Were all items actually in stock at the time and available? Looking at that first order it looks as if the item has to be sourced hence the 3+ week delay.

Most of my orders with Amazon, if in stock, are delivered on the super-saver scheme within a week. To be honest if I was waiting 3+weeks for an item that was in stock, I wouldn't be looking to ay £49 for express service, I would be looking for another supplier!

:giggle:

So true. Amazon just seem to get worse with delivery times, as Adamo's post proves. If HMV etc can deliver an order within 2 days for FREE (and give me some Quidco as well) then I see no great advantage in paying Amazon for a 'slightly' better service and no end user discount.
#19
It'll do for me.

Hotted!
#20
im fairly sure amazon are trying to push their priority shipping, as most things i order that are in stock take several days to get around to being actually processed.

having said that, if you use them regularly this is a good deal. paying up front for shipping is a nice idea.
#21
You could really annoy them by ordering the very cheap fillers one at a time with this! you'd end up getting mountains of stuff thats costs a few pence to order all delivered seperately!

1. You get *Unlimited* 1-day delivery on any order


Are you a broadband user? If so you know that 'unlimited' means sod all:whistling: Wonder what Amazons hidden FUP actually is on this?

Express delivery still costs £4.49 with this scheme.

They don't specify what '1-day delivery' actually means, and why you would still want to pay for 'express delivery' if you have free '1-day delivery.

What time do you have to order by? Not explained anywhere in the terms.

To be fair, this might be as good as 'express' for most people, and I guess it is better than 1-day delivery, but given that the 1-day delivery isn't guaranteed and its parameters are undefined, who knows?

Amazon.co.uk does not guarantee One-Day Delivery of items within the estimated transit time or by the estimated delivery date

IMO, this is the same service, rebranded, as first class, which currently costs:

Item Per Item Per Delivery
CD/ DVD/ Vinyl 0.29 1.16
PC/ Video game 0.40 1.59
Books (includes audio books) 0.59 2.16
Baby Item/ Electronics & Photo accessory/ Home & Garden accessory/ Software/ Toy/ Video 0.69 2.54
Electronics & Photo item/ Home & Garden item/ Jewellery & Watches item/ Shoes & Accessories item/ Sports & Leisure item 1.69 4.19

i.e. between £1.45 and £5.88/delivery

In most cases 1-day delivery will be next day as long as the item is in stock & available for immediate dispatch :)

Well put it this way: free delivery is Royal Snail. Express delivery invariably is not.
#26
If they still gave me the 5% student discount I would so go for this.
#27
Its a bit expensive if you ask me. Its only £1.20 for a CD/DVD isn't it?
#28
I can't see why this is being voted as hot?

Amazon giving you a service for £49 which most online retailers give you free anyway? (shipping)
#29
I'd rather they just brought back the free sandwich book ;-)

voted cold, seems a complete waste of money to me

It doesn't come the next day with most. Certainly with Play there's a wait of at least 2-3 days.

Everytime I have chosen Express Delivery with Amazon, I get the item the next day. Its a great deal if you're a regular shopper with them...

If you want express delivery, that will cost you £4.49 each time on top of the £49

This is not Express, it is what appears to be the First Class service

But they don't guarantee it, the way they do express. If it's not there next day, nothing you can do.

THat's why I think it's effectively 'first class'

I ordered an item this morning and it says Estimated Delivery date is tomorrow.

Its still next day delivery for me, making it very much worth it.

Express Delivery is also next day but before 1pm.

I've noticed free delivery taking longer with Amazon these days as they are now using TNT for most of their stuff, so this slows it down quite a bit. The reason for this is it goes via Amazon to TNT who then give it to Royal Mail to deliver. Instead of it just going straight from Amazon to Royal Mail :?

I agree... the problems also are that TNT don't give the item to Royal Mail straight away, and when they do it then seems to be treated as second class mail, and so takes even longer to be delivered.
#37
I think this is cold, for me if you spend enough money at Amazon to warrant the deal they should give you the membership for free. Can't believe the heat this has got ????????
#38
Surely worth it just for their misprices alone. :giggle:

Nah... they just cancel those anyway! :whistling:

OK so I subscribed and did a few test orders today picking stuff off my wishlist - all the ityems are coming separately and all have been sent Special delivery. So this seems a little better than a first class only service (I think Sd costs like a minimum of £4?) Anyways I'm happy as things like Bourne supremamcy at 8.98 are now worth ordering as u dont need the filler items and they arrive SD the day after release hot hot hot
