    For a minimum of £20. What are your thoughts on this? I think it only makes shoppers less patient and possibly more impulsive with their shopping (of course, Amazon wins from this). I think next day delivery is awesome but this is a bit too far. -_-

    So yeah, thoughts?

    If you're a student, subscribe to Amazon Student. Basically, you get 6 months trial of Prime, then it's half price per year.

    I have it, it's worth it so far

    Amazons next day delivery service never turned up till between 6pm and 8pm so after many days waiting in all day for my parcel,a 2 hour service sounds ideal for me

    Yeah it is worth it, though I did this and ended up hardly using it. Also I don't think you get films/videos etc on it which I was looking forward to.

    OP how much does this cost?

    Amazon loves you. Can you feel the Amazonian love?

    Odd. Mine always turns up at morning. I just wake up and a lovely packet from Amazon has come already. Feels like Christmas!

    You do get videos with Prime. Hell, amazon keeps annoyingly telling me that (they have already sent me two letters with two Amazon video cards) and they keep emailing me about it. Funnily enough, I don't use it.
    It is free (for Prime Members) if you spend a minimum of £20. So you won't get a pair of socks delivered in 2 hours. But normally this extreme priority is most likely associated with high value products.

    I complained to customer service when i cancelled prime and they gave me a refund so wasnt all bad.
    £20 would cover that emergency textbook the library has run out of for that essay due the next day:P

    I couldn't work out how to get the videos to work, they kept asking for payment so I didn't bother.

    Cheers :cool:

    Doubt it. It covers most of London and I doubt they have warehouses all over London.

    Then return it, get a refund and get Juichiro some drinks for having that awesome idea.

    P.S. Irrelevant question: do you work at the TSR offices?

    Good news that you do it early. Bad news I don't get my drinks.

    Hmmm, interesting. It's because some people of the Community/[insername name here] Team posted some pics of themselves working in the TSR office. Exactly one week ago.

    Oooooo! :ahee:

    i guess its only worth it if you need something urgent. Otherwise the free delivery in 3-5 days is fine as i usually get stuff quicker than that
