Amazon pre-order deliverys?

Quick question, ive never pre-ordered anything from Amazon before and was wondering if they deliver on the day the item is released? Im going to pre-order a game from there and its due out on the 27th, so can i expect to see it pop through my letterbox on that day?

Im going pay first class btw

thx for any info!


I last thing I pre-ordered from Amazon arrived the day before it was due for release, although it was only a book not a game.

I have pre-ordered a couple of things (2 x DVD boxsets) and they have arrived the day of release. However my friend pre-ordered the new Harry Potter book and it did not come until the day after, but I understand that was because of the amount of books they had to send.

I have received things the day before release as well. a good system

I pre-ordered GTA4 using free super saver delivery and got it on the day of release but my friend who also pre-ordered from amazon months before I did went for first class delivery to make sure and he got it a day after me! I'm guessing that wont happen very often, probably just because of the demand.

I'd stick to free delivery though, I've always got my pre-orders on time doing that, dont think it will make much difference :thumbsup:

Hi, I ordered a PS2 game pre release and it arrived a week before the release date! Was over a year ago now but was a nice surprise. Probably a one off though.........

I'v always had thing arrive on or before release, though admittedly I am a prime customer so everything is sent via special delivery, dhl, parcelforce or home delivery network.

One more thing, do Amazon take the cash out straight away or when the game is released? I can't check yet and i can't ask the missus as she doesn't know ive pre-ordered it so i can't look on Natwest online banking.

Aye im naughty ;P

I think they don't charge you until they are to send it out
