Chaps, ordered something on Amazon to get delivered to an NI address, but it's taking an awful long time to be delivered.

It was received by RM on Monday, spent 3 days in a sorting office in England somewhere, before finally being recorded as being in NI today, but still not out for delivery.

Is this normal, or is there a Christmas rush or something?

+1 Matthew. Depends on the seller. Normally the delivery is 2-3 days. Very good.

On a related note, I'm just about to order my Christmas present from the missus from Homebrewwest, a malt mill. Am at checkout but there's no facility for entering NHC number for discount. Tried phoning them but no answer. How do you use the code?

Cheers,

Cheers, Shane. I did get to that screen, stuck in the number and got an error:

Error: The coupon code you have entered is not valid, please use the back link and try again.

I've been finding Royal mail very slow over the past month or so, its taking 3/4 weeks sometimes.

I used the Homebewest code on wednesday no problems.

Wait till after about 12 or so - don't think they go in before 11 !!

Yes; but unlike you, I was being a complete idiot and using my card membership number  ::) Duh!

All sorted now.

Getting back OT:
Ordered from Amazon.uk on 14th (last Thursday), Dispatched on 15th, Got email from Parcel Motel on 19th (Tuesday). Picked up Tuesday afternoon.

Wow! That was quick!

Thing about Amazon: Not all the stuff comes from Amazon! A lot of orders are redirected to other suppliers so its up to them! Then of course there's the local distribution end to consider!

Just got a small packet (tracked for €4 :) ) from Spain - took 16 days to arrive!. It was tracked so I know it was put into the Spanish post system day after order!

Royal Mail seems to think Ireland is on the dark side of the Moon so deliveries, North or South, often take considerable time.

Standard delivery times, USPS-Texas to Wexford - 5 days, Royal Mail-Liverpool to Wexford 12-15 days - go figure ::)
