I originally ordered on 13 Jan and received an order acknowledgement. I was emailed an order confirmation and e-receipt with a tracking number on Monday after getting on to customer service. On Tuesday I got the text with the arrival date and timeslot for delivery today.

Tracked it as I was expecting it to be delayed or something, but it arrived within the timeslot and with no extra charges.

Just a quick heads up that those off you awaiting Nespresso Vertuo devices from Currys (I know there's a few of you) that the 100 free coffee capsule offer ends on 31st of the month. If you haven't received and registered your device by then, you have lost not only a 100 capsules but also two free months subscription worth another €60

This offer was the only reason I ordered the machine and it will be heading straight back to the UK if it gets here late. Mine was ordered on 3rd Jan, last DPD update 11th Jan. I'm not particularly optimistic!

Speak to Nespresso direct and explain. They're usually pretty helpful.

I am aware that items costing <€22 don't attract charges . You missed the bit about the desk and other stuff I got.

I ordered from Currys (ie website) on the 7th. I got a text about delays next day and on the 16th, was notified that it's on its way. Tracking says it's left the UK on 18th and no update since. I'm kicking myself for not checking whether Currys despatch from Ireland or UK, it never occurred to me that the stock wasn't in Ireland. I don't need the item really urgently so if I was confident it will eventually arrive, I wouldn't really mind but I'm not sure it will!

I ordered something in early January from Argos and it got stuck in the customs delays (again I didn't know it would come from the UK) but it arrived today.

I’m still waiting on the virus scanner and Microsoft office I ordered from Currys for the laptop that arrived on Monday. It was “heading to Ireland” but for the last 3 days it’s saying “Sorted by distribution centre”. I know if I go and order them elsewhere suddenly I’ll get a message from Currys re next days delivery.

You're going to be even more annoyed when you receive them and realise they are just printed codes that could have simply been emailed :-)

Actually that opens a whole new tin of worms... will UK supplied software licences be valid in the EU? Probably not a question for this thread but definitely something to ponder.

Anyone in same position as me

Ordered 26th December ,these are updates

30 Dec 2020 18:35 Athlone Sorted by distribution centre
29 Dec 2020 19:01 DPD We have your parcel and it's on its way to our depot
29 Dec 2020 07:01 CurrysPCW We've received your order details, but have not yet received your parcel

Currys keep telling it delayed due to Brexit though it seems to be in Ireland since the 30th December or am I missing something ?

Got the text last week to say our order was due yesterday. Instead of the order arriving, got a text from DPD with the customs bill.

Still no update from Currys, just the same apology from the customer service team via twitter. I don't understand how it can take a package 13 days to get back to them from DPD within the same country. Also that they can't just send another items as opposed to waiting to change the label on the original.

I was actually a big fan of currys prior to this happening but the way they've managed it from a PR perspective is terrible. Will aim to use Irish only in future or other EU specific that don't ship via UK.

I might have just missed the Brexit- chaos.
