Found 21st Nov 2010
I want to give my FIL the new Family Guy DVD that is due to be released on 27 Dec. We will be visiting him on 28 Dec to take his presents. I just want to ask if anyone knows for sure that if I purchase this will it get to me on or before the release date.

Also, Play and Amazon are doing it for the same price. Are both of them good for sending them out for the release date.

Thanks in advance.

I doubt it.

Highly unlikely

Why not just pick it up on the 27th from a shop if you are desperate?

At least you will know you have it in your hand.

Thank you, I'm not desperate as such. Will get it in store if it's marked up at a good price, don't want to pay the RRP for it though as I know it will be hugely discounted during the year.

Would trust Amazon over Play IMO. Why not post it to his address (and ask a family member to hide it if it arrives on the 27th) so that if he doesn't get it on the 27th he'll get it asap after.

You could always try your local blockbuster on the 27th and trade in a few DVD's (or games) to offset the price.

As xmas day and boxing day are on Sat and Sun, The 27th and 28th are bank holidays this year. So you wont get any post until 29th at the earlierst

District 9 had a release date of the 26th last year... I received my blu ray on the 24 th!

Thanks for all of your replies, think I'll wait until the release date. If I can get it for a good price I'll buy it then, otherwise I'll wait until his birthday

I'd check to see if whatever shop you intend to use is actually open on the 27th.
