Has anyone anyone experiance of delivery times from Amazon.com I ask as my son needs to order a law book which he needs in the not to distant future. The delivery times stated on Amazons site are 9-36 days for std or 6-22 for expedited or 2-4 days for priority.

For Standard delivery, on an item in stock, I have rarely waited more than 4 days.

4 days from the States that very impressive.

Sorry didn't register the 'com' - Forget what I have said.

I've never had problems with amazon,if its in stock ittells you the delivery estimate.Depends what delivery you choose, but usually pretty quick in my experience.
Hope that helps

I have, on occasions, ordered goods online from the States (not Amazon though) and delivery is normally about a week later.

It took nearly a month for Amazon to deliver Acronis CD. I don't see why they sell stuff that is obviously (after your purchase) not a stock item

We buy many books and cds from amazon, especially com. With exchange rate as is, it's often cheaper than uk. standard dely usually approx a week. bought a cd from uk site from an outside company in japan- arrived in two days!
excellent

Thanks for your help one and all.
The book my son needs is only available from Amazon.com as its an American law book.
We'll give the std del option a try.
I'll post back with the del result, just for everyone's info.
Thanks again

If its any help, I wanted some special cd's available from the US only. I contacted Amazon in the UK and ten days later, I had the cd's.
