Can Amazon Really Deliver...???

Post by C.B & S. » Wed Jun 14, 2017 3:27 pm

Hi,
Okays have placed an order with Amazon for another gas smoker from USA.
Order placed 11pmish on Tuesday 14/6.
Delivery due to Mt. Waverley is this Friday. :shock:
So they tell me....should be a good watch & see.
Cheers.

We having side bets with this :D :D
I will say you have an even chance of it turning up, I ordered a top line spinning reel a few years back and was in my hands in 3 days but was ordered though a different company.
I am looking forward to when Amazon setup shop here in Oz. It is going to kick ebay in the sweet spot !

I only used normal freight too and that was an armnaleg...... but have just done a tracking check......definite for delivery by end of Friday :shock:
It has a window seat. :lol:
Maybe they are doing extra super service in the lead up to Aust. launch.
Keep you posted....should be an interesting exercise in service.
Cheers.

I ordered something small from Amazon on the 5th of June and it turned up today. I was very impressed as I've had to wait longer for stuff to arrive from Sydney :roll: .

Yeah must say it kinda makes it worth the freight cost on a 45kg parcel for 3 days from order.

Amazing Amazon-Far Out

Post by C.B & S. » Thu Jun 15, 2017 12:01 pm

Unbelievable the smoker HAS landed in Melbourne and has cleared customs for delivery. That means delivery will be tomorrow, I have no doubt!!
Can't complain about that for service. 3 days from the USA ...sort of eases the pain of the high freight cost. Maybe this was due to the upcoming launch of Amazon into Aust. :o
Wonder if it flew economy or fist class. :lol:
Cheers.

Truly amazing if auspost were involved at all, it takes 240hrs for them to get a letter from here to 80km away.

No Aust. post involvement 220 that's for sure. Just Amazon trying to impress before they launch in Aust. no doubt.
I have had stuff arrive in Aust. before and then sit in space for longer than it took to get to Aust. because Aust Post is involved. :o :o
E.bay is gonna need to lift the game play that's for sure.
Cheers.

Hi,
So the smoker turned up super fast but had minor damage to the carton that was barely visible to the eye. Only discovered it as driver was about to leave....thank god......made him take a photo.
It had a small dent to this part and upon opening I found another minor dent to the cabinet area. No big deal with either dents.
Sent off an e.mail to Amazon this morning about this, and within 2 hrs offer of near $100.00 discount.
Think that is more than fair......thank you umpire!!!!!

Now that's what I Call Service both with the delivery and handling of the MINOR issue... :D :D :lol:
Cheers.

UPDATE:: 1.30pm Today the refund has been Applied to my C/C....What friggin great competition they will be. :D :D :D

This is gonna shake up the state of play for poor old E.Bay.
