FWIW I have never had an issue with them in my 10 or so orders. I note that prices also get reduced as VAT is removed.

What Luke said. In dozens of orders to Amazon UK from NZ, I recall just two that ran late, and most have been delivered early.

Of course, by Murphy's Law, I am now doomed.

That offer is downright neighborly , but game books I want.

Pretty much bought all of the rune quest ii books in existence.

If it hasn't been dispatched/started processing yet, you might be able to change the postage type to free. Or cancel and resubmit the order (as I did with an order of mine).

Decided to pick up the Deathwatch RPG, because I could.

I wonder if this is because of bookdepository.co.uk?

I assumed it was to take advantage of the REdgroup collapse?
