Also, "the Two-Day Delivery service for products stored outside the UK is available at no charge for Amazon Prime customers". Seems pretty self-explanatory.
Loooks like the European price comparator will really come into its own for Prime customers - can't wait !!
FYI, Prime costs £80 a year. It inculdes the Netflix like Prime Video service, which I never use and unlimited free delivery. I probably do a couple of deliveries per week, so it's less than £1 per delivery for me.
As for the comment above about delivery not being as fast for non prime members. I don't think it's as fast for prime members nowdays either. I think in the first two years I had prime, only one or two deliveries didn't arrive next day. Now it seems to be about one in three.
I was actually toying with cancelling, but this euro wide thing, plus the fact that I often need books quickly for work purposes probably tips the balance in favor of renewing for another year.
It LOOKS like it's come from the UK because it only has a UK courier label. City Link most likely. That's because .it will package everything from their warehouse in Milan or wherever and then send it straight to the Amazon warehouse here in the UK.
Last thing I ordered from Amazon was a pair of 32Gb Micro SD cards to load up with films for our tablets on the flight over to Mexico for our hols. Ordered 9 days before our hols, in stock and dispatched 10 days later, arrived at home 2 days into our holiday - useless.
And you know this how ? Because per Kev's message above it has a UK courier sticker on it ? Not sure that's exactly definitive proof....
Because I received next day from Dunfermline. It was also tracked and traced from there right from the start. Its happened a few times.
The receipt even had dunfermline address.
Why would Amazon allow Citylink to post fictitious tracking information that (along with the timescale) confirms that the parcel for my Amazon.it order originated from within the UK unless it was flown from Italy to the UK more immediately than I would expect a harvested Heart ready for transplant to be?
