They're fine. For just a a game they usually use royal mail

pretty good actually

they been good for me this year

yeh games and dvds for me take 2-3 days from there

This time of year most stuff on amazon is sent next day delivery regardless of what delivery option you have selected

I've found it really slow lately, I'm still waiting for items that were sent out over a week ago

That could be a problem at royal mails end caused by what I think they would term, adverse weather

Last week I ordered some stuff Wednesday afternoon and it turned up Friday morning (Free Supersaver Del too). Suppose at the mo it depends where you are with the weather though...

I will clear the snow but no way am I posting letters

Well I am going to say NO,they messed us about last Xmas,so have not got anything from them this year!

Usually four or five days, sometimes quicker.

I think that is more a Royal mail issue than Amazon as they post fairly promptly.

Never had any problems with Amazon, always quick and reliable and well packaged too unlike some. Any delays at the moment will obviously be due to the weather conditions but you can see before ordering when despatch is likely and you always get an email confirming when it is actually despatched. Use them all the time and last year at Christmas they were they only ones I could rely on for stuff - Play.com arrived after christmas as did Tesco and Zavvi.

2 weeks and im still waiting for a hoover, not amazons fault but hdnl who they will use. So beware that it might take abit of time

Ordered a DVD box set from them last Monday and it arrived on the Thursday or Friday. Decent enough unlike bloody Argos who have called twice to postpone my delivery by 7 days at a time!

Ordered something off base.com last Tuesday. Still not arrived. Order something of Amazon sunday. Arrived already

They're pretty good when I've ordered stuff, very quick, although it could be because I've placed so many orders in the last week or so.......

no sorry, that was the delivery estimate, it was actually sent out on the 28th of novemeber, so yes i would have expected it to be here by now, something i ordered on 4t december turned up today

That is quite a while then. I would be more inclined to blame hdnl. At my old house the used to just leave things on my front step which went out onto a busy pavement and road. Once they left a £200 hifi there.

Amazon,are not as good as a lot of chaps think,same type of thing happen to us,and the problem is they are fine when you order gets to you,but as soon as it does not,they do not sort it out,as you said I will never use them again.
