I got my laptop via DPD last week. Some An Post and some Amazon. The most hilarious is that they're sending a £1.99 advent calendar via Amazon logistics. Surely cheaper to post

They can work an Amazon logistics courier to death, Postmen have a union.

Only thing to note is, prime video can't be shared in ROI so if you watch on different devices it can be a bit of a PITA especially when signing into any Amazon app on a phone usually signs you into all Amazon apps, ie, if you sign into prime video it usually signs you into that account on the shopping app, kindle app etc

Probably overloaded plus I don't think they scan items in over the weekend, won't get scanned until Monday.

Royal Mail deliver in sacks in cages to parcel wizard and parcel motel and they then get sorted either later that day or next working day
Monday afternoon would be my guess for a message from them

I’ve been using parcel motel mostly for Amazon. My last few orders I’ve noticed once I click away from that default address to my usual ROI address the shipping isn’t affected at all. Just in case anyone else assumes it’s always cheaper, it hasn’t been for me in a while. Half of my prime buys arrived on Friday with an post, the rest have been despatched so I’ll see them on Tuesday. No delays at all, successful enough this year!

As long as you have a Prime Account it is better to use your home address , unless a product cannot be shipped to Ireland. Only then do you use your Parcel Motel, AddressPal etc.

If you have a regular Amazon account you are usually better off using your alternative account than your home address because if delivery charges. That is not always the case though.

I impulsed an Xbox One X from the warehouse during Prime Day. Came in at around £237 delivered.
I tried to cancel not long afterwards, but they said I couldn’t. Said if I wanted, just refuse delivery and it’d be returned to them.
Already have an Xbox S, so I’m wondering if it’s worth holding onto the X or not?

BTW, it’s the kid uses it, not me. And he usually plays Fortnite.

I've noticed that the return date for anything bought between now and Christmas is Jan 31st so you have over 3.5 months to return it.

Probably not if its just for Fortnite - X has an optical drive alright and 4k - however for casual gaming the one S is fine

Picked this up on lightning deal. Anker are solid so just had a cursory glance and bought it. Always read the small print - doesnt support QC, just PD. Makes it a far less tidy solution when I need a second charger.
