No just some in-store woolworths vouchers

I sent something 2nd class, received the next day I think they're good.

I signed up for a Amazon Prime trial, and the first order is 2 days late at the minute and still not here. They didn't send my recorded delivery a pair of X11's worth 35 quid and no tracking!

Phoned them up and cancelled amazon prime, if they can't get it right on a trial then what will they be like once they have my money!

Not just inland mail slow i posted 2 items to usa on dec9th 1 a cd the other a 7" record to diff parts of usa...neither has got there yet

I have similar experiences as well, but I think it all depends on where you live and where the item is coming from. For example quite often if I send something 2nd class from Dundee it will reach NI the next day, but if I order something from England and they send it send class to Dundee I could be waiting a good week or so.

Ive not had any problems here, I guess some areas are still back logged after the snow

Still waiting on a few things that were posted out straight after Christmas & so are lots of people!!

Apparently they are delaying putting their prices up - good job really when things aren't even being delivered!

True. God knows why some of my things take like a week or so to come

I ordered from Shopto yesterday, arrived today. However, am still waiting for 4 small orders from Amazon that were dispatched over a week ago

Ordered a pair of trainers from Javari on the 29th never came, they sent replacements on the 7th January still not come !! Great

ive had the last of my Christmas orders today including cards lol, still missing the 2 games from play.com but finally got the refund. Our postie says theres still a big backlog in my local depot so maybe its the same in other places

Didnt order much before Christmas but since then had stuff sent Thursday and Friday first class that hasnt arrived yet.

I ordered on wednesday, with the next day delivery. They turned up today (tuesday).

Not impressed, there's no discount because they're so late?
