I pre-ordered this and paid the extra to have it guaranteed for delivery on release day, but will this mean that I have to sign for it? (Normally, I order my goods and choose "free delivery", but I'm a bit worried that even though it's guaranteed for tomorrow, the last thing I want is to have it waiting for me at the sorting office the following morning, as no one will be able to sign for it when the post arrives!)
I guess this might well vary depending on location and who delivers the mail, but for it to be a "guaranteed" delivery kind of strikes me that it will likely come via "Royal Mail Special Delivery"? I hope not though!
Not if a signature is required it won't. They have a new policy of dropping off parcels with neighbours, if they can not get you. look for a drop off note saying who they left it with. Or listen for shooting sounds as your neighbour plays your Halo 4 lol.
I pre ordered on the 6th October and paid for one day delivery, on release date. My item wasnt dispatched till 8pm last night. I spoke to them twice yesterday and was assured delivery would be today.
Low & behold, when my postman arrives today he doesn't have a copy of halo 4 with him. I'm not the only one, at last count on twitter amazon uk twitter account had around a thousand complaints about today's deliverys.
When I spoke to them this morning I was kindly informed That paying for one day delivery only ensures it is sent first class! Yes that's right sports fans, your one day delivery could take 3 days.
Should still be fine. If you ordered with the guaranteed delivery for today, it'll be being delivered by a courier, not your postman. Mine's being delivered by DPD, who have given me a delivery time of between 13:43 and 14:43 - don't panic just because your postie has been and you've not got Halo yet.
Incorrect, in your order summary it shows how it's been dispatched. Royal Mail. The fact that it wasn't sent till late yesterday is the reason it hasn't arrived. Funny as no pre order customers from game, play etc are complaining about this!
I think you're getting me mixed up for someone who works for Amazon - I don't. I'm just saying what my experience is in an attempt to help. Mine is being delivered by DPD as I've got a consignment number and tracking details from them.
this is an absolute joke, Amazon just to let you know i am cancleling all my Pre-orders with you... this isnt the first time ive ordered something for next day delivery and it not to turn up and from now on i am ordering elswhere!
lol omg tis abit much, i havent had mine either but oh well, maybe it will arrive tea time or tomorrow, its a shame but nothing to do but wait. Gameplay were good as they wud send abit earlier and it came a day early or at worst on the day of release lol sadly they are no more and Gamestation is not the same on that front.
I've got the same problem I'm irratated I paid 6 quid for one day delivery and its not here.. if I knew it wasn't gonna be one day I would have bought it elsewhere. But that being said I got the email saying royal mail has it kinda out of Amazons hands but I'm not happy this happened to me when I ordered Halo reach preorder from game and it Diddnt arrive. So their not perfect
oh ok, hmmmm might not be any good for normal postage "get on release date" etc, i paid for 1 day delivery, but thats just the normal one they say like order with 1st class post to get on day of release etc so no good for me i guess.
Yeah, I don't often pre order with Amazon to be honest, but I just went with the option that they said 'Guaranteed delivery on launch day' and it seems to have worked for me, although it doesn't look like it has with everyone. That being said, I've had the same problem with Game 2 or 3 times, which is why I didn't order with them in the first place.
