I ordered an electrical device from Amazon now more than 53 hours ago (i.e.more than 2 days). In the past I have usually had Super Saver delivery and found myself getting a despatched email within around 24 hours.
On this occasion i wanted the item fairly quickly. I had a choice of around £8+ for courier next day, or around £3 for first class. I thought the latter in combination with the usual 24hr despatch would be quick enough.
Here we are 53hrs after ordering my item hasn't even yet been despatched. Delivery is estimated next Monday. I would haveexpected an item ordered Tuesday even with super-saver to have arrived by the following Monday. Personally I think it seems to be a con to order first class recorded. I still have time it seems to order by courier but £8 to order something the size of a compact camera seems a rip off.
