They do offer free delivery!

Good deal for frequent users of Amazon.

They dont as you end up paying for it by ordering useless stuff you dont want

Seems all the decent stuff add up to like £14 and you have to order something that you dont want

Im pretty sure amazon offered free delivery once

All the other sites do it so why not them

tesco jersey

Oh stop being so bloody serious!! :roll:

Dan, i'm surprised you didn't post a poll on whether people thought it was VFM :lol:

woolworths free delivery???

Even if somewhere provides you with free delivery, chances are you're paying slightly more for the item. They've all got to make a profit somehow.

No such thing as "free" delivery. If Amazon did free delivery on everything then prices would have to go up.

You might find some bargains on "free" delivery sites but on average the prices are higher across the board.

Amazon Prime isn't for me but it is next day courier - which will cost amazon about £4 a delivery wholesale.

Syzable

LMFAO - Sy will rep you for putting a smile on my face :-D

End of the day, those site's who offer free delievery - the delievery is reflected in the price. Say the buy a bunch of, o I dunno, C.D's for a fiver - sell them for £7.99

Thats almost three quid profit, and it can't cost more than a quid to send a CD these days surely.....

Actually I tend to find that it's Amazon that are generally more expensive, apart from stuff that gets posted on here.

I might actually go for this. Amazon are most often cheaper for books that I want, but individually postage bumps up the price. If I could order a single book with an RRP of £7.99 which they have for £3.99, and not have to pay postage of £2.75, it would be worth it over the course of a year.

do you really think it's 'free' or do you think the postage costs are hidden in the pricing of the goods?

Well play.com for instance you can buy saving private ryan on dvd for £2.99 whereas amazon had it for £5.99

You need to average the prices of at least 100 items under £15 to see price trends between sites. Just plucking a random DVD to illustrate your point is lazy.

Look a chart paperback books for example. £3.50 is the base amazon price to compete with supermarkets. Wholesale is about £2 a book. Depending on weight postage will average about £1.50 second class. Not much margin there - hence why play average around £5 for chart paperbacks.

What is book

hmm, I do always still think of amazon as a book seller. I notice their DVDs and games are less competative.

Can anybody tell me the difference between their One Day Delivery (FREE) and their express guaranteed delivery (£4.95).

Because i've had 4 deliveries from them since joining Amazon Prime and 3 of them were for items costing less then £5 and got sent NEXT DAY Special Delivery and the other was sent NEXT DAY CITYLINK before 9AM.

Before joining I bought a camera a few weeks ago and paid £8.99 for express delivery and that got sent by Next Day Special Delivery.
