Yes happening quite frequently, to me also.

Wanted a particular Bosch pressure washer. Completely unavailable when delivery address set to Ireland. Once changed to UK (NI address) the product appeared with the deal price and I made the purchase.

I'm wondering is prime worth it . On black friday the was an offer on 4L oil limited to one item per Amazon account. So firstly on my prime account I ordered one 4L can of oil.
I have another amazon account NOT prime that I very very rarely use which I used to purchase another 4L can of oil which included free shipping.
Now my non prime item was delivered today and my prime delivery is not due for another two days.
Both item were dispatched from the same location in the UK and were scanned in to DuB by an post within an hour of each other.

Depends how much you use it I guess. I've been getting deliveries almost everyday for the last few weeks, everything from a radiator key to computer parts so for me it's excellent - I also use the streaming service. If you're using it once in a blue moon probably not.

Have to say, much as I hate Amazon these days (their website is awful, it's all geared towards selling what they want you to buy rather than what you're actually looking for), delivery was pretty good.

Ordered some RAM and an SSD Monday evening, RAM delivered lunchtime yesterday, SSD due today.

And that was after selecting free delivery by December 15th. Glad I didn't bother paying extra for express delivery!

No, I take that back. Got a mail saying for today's delivery they "ran into an issue when attempting your delivery. We will try again". But if I have information which would help them complete the delivery, I should update the delivery instructions.

I might be able to do that if they gave me any kind of meaningful information. Can they not find the address? Not access the building? Will the item not fit in the postbox? Are they missing my contact number? Did the driver retreat after beiing attacked by a flock of rabid seagulls?

That's about the level of completely useless information I've come to expect from Amazon.

The Channel 4 program about Amazon said that where your product is listed depends on how much you pay. Also you pay to become Amazon's Choice.
