    I think from the "Pre-order" page it seems that they may just have run out of the book?

    can you check the shipping cost before ordering?


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,916 ✭✭✭dubmick

    I'm asking the same question as shortys94 because it hasn't been answered yet.
    I chose priority shipping and applied the code. The only discount I could see was -£5.99 for the book. I went all the way to the confirm page but pulled out because at no stage did it show shipping of any sort, so I couldn't be sure if the free shipping was also applied.

    Yes it isn't really indicated but it does indicate £0.00 as total figure. I got the book and choose priority shipping and went through with it. I didn't see any shipping cost but just presumed it had been deducted. Got an e-mail confirming deducted shiping the next day. (-£19.96!) Mind you I just ordered the Book therefore I'm not sure about multiple items.

    It doesnt work anymore, only gives you free shipping on the hellmans book, so people stop getting all worked up about not seeing the price of shipping.
    Its in the top right hand corner btw before you place your order.

    No, it's not. i just tried it again. I chose priority shipping and at no stage is shipping shown anywhere. I got to the last stage again and there is a 'place your order' button, with no summary of the order. The only other piece of info is where it says 'promotion applied -£5.99'.

    I think it's reasonable to want to make sure I'm not being charged for shipping, especially choosing priority shipping.

    the book is back in but you only get a pound off shipping and , obviously, a free sangwitch book .


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,404 ✭✭✭Dr. Nick


    They've pushed out delivery date of an order I placed earlier in the week (before the Hellman's book went 'out of stock') to after Christmas, even though it's IN STOCK!

    Ordered my books on wed, DHL delivered this morning. Saved £25 on delivery and got the U2 book for £15. (€30ish here I think)

    I can't stand the sight of mayonaise but fair play to Hellmans!!

    I can see it now, sometime in the new year Amazon forward the bill for shipping to some guy in Hellmans and he's like 'WTF :eek:'.

    :D

    Hi

    I think they changed, you do not get free shipping in the whole order if you order other stuff, you only get a refund on the part that would be for the shipping of the book.

    Regards

    I can only get the 99p deduction of the shipping. Does that mean that this offer is over?

    I think it means that Amazon have finally copped on to their mistake, I believe you can still get the "offer" which is of a free book, not unlimited priority shipping.

    Lads, this loophole has been closed since the evening of the 7th! I've learned my lesson... When you see an offer this good on this site - go for it! :)
