Same as you guys on the HP Box set (Nov 30) i've ordered 2 as Xmas gifts for people - hope they make it in time.

My experience:

order #203-1078929-xxxxxxxx received October 24, 2011

Amazon.co.uk advises dispatch Nov 30th

1 Harry Potter - The Complete £26.92 1 £26.92

Dispatched via Royal Mail and estimated arrival date advised as December 14, 2011

Arrived 14 December and into the Christmas stocking!

Anyone noticed the increase in price on various titles over the past 48 hours? Star Wars went from 48GBP to over 67GBP, Ultimate gangster boxset 17GBP to 31GBP.

Is it just because of Christmas or other factors at play?

I expect Amazon are trying to cash in on the last minute panic before xmas as it is a captive market: only really to nab local customers as given the usual delivery times recently to Oz, packages ordered now possibly won't arrive here by xmas.

However, Amazon prices always fluctuate anyway and it's rare for me to find all the titles I want to order are at their lowest point at the same time.

My order was dispatched on the 21st of November and had and estimated arrival date of 7th of December and still hasn't turned up yet.

Hopefully it arrives ready for Christmas.

got my preorder Harry boxset today

looks like it's not one cover per movie, but for the price who cares

What is the packaging like? I ordered one for relatives and it was delivered to their address, so I can't see it.

Never mind, Amazon has some pics and it seems like 4 separate cases for the 8 movies.

I added a heap of other Movies to my HP pre order while it was sitting there. It wasn't shipped with Royal mail so I guess I will be waiting a while yet.

Still waiting for my order that was dispatched on the 30/11 (albeit via Deutsche Post DHL). Estimated delivery date was today and no show. If it hasn't turned up by tomorrow I'll be getting in touch with them.

Normally Amazon orders take 5-7 business days max for me, so I'm getting a little impatient!

Incidentally, I'm still waiting for an order from Amazon US that shipped on 16/11...must be on a round the world trip!

Still waiting on 2 HP box sets to arrive (sent 30/11 via Royal Mail). My last two orders have averaged about 5 weeks, so I’m a bit worried about presents arriving in time for xmas… Have another order sent today, delivery estimate is Dec 23rd… Hopefully this one at least meets the estimate…

Still waiting on the HP box sets... More than slightly concerned that these will now be MIA on Christmas Day... I contacted Amazon as the delivery estimate was Dec 15th. They have asked me to wait until Jan 3rd... (frustrating as these were bought as xmas gifts). Must say, my last few deliveries from Amazon UK have been rather poor (delivery wise). I waited almost 6 weeks for Rio to arrive and now HP has gone beyond the estimate... Appreciate it is a busy time of year but others on here, received their orders without delay.... :(

You're not alone! I'm still waiting for 3 of my orders - they were estimated to arrived on 13/12, 14/12 and 15/12 - None had arrived!

My HP box set was dispatched 1 Dec via Royal Mail and arrived 9 Dec, but it was the only item in the order.

I wonder if it made any difference sending it directly to the recipient as a gift instead of my own address as a normal parcel.

My HP box set arrived today, it was at the front door when I got home from work, it was soaked & falling apart, thank god Amazon had packed it in the middle of the box & was surrounded by paper which protected it from getting wet or damaged, I was shocked to see the box it the state it was in, never had that happen before. It was like it had been in the garden for a couple of days.....

Are you able to advise whether this was via Royal Mail or Deutsche Post? Mine was shipped via the latter (I assume as there were two, Amazon usually ship heavier items through Deutsche?)

I'm still waiting for mine... Meant to have been here by the 16th. Not trackable so no idea what's happened. I had a package from Amazon US go missing a couple of weeks ago; signed for by a person with a completely different name on a day I know I was at home all day... And yet another parcel that was "on board with driver" yesterday still hasn't appeared (and no update on the tracking site). So I'm not having a good run.

My final order arrived today via Deutsche Post.

had 7 titles in it and all turned up in good condition but the packaging was a little damp on the outside only.

My HP box set arrived much faster even though both orders shipped within 24 hours of each other via Royal Mail.

What day was your Deutsche Post order dispatched?

I have some xmas stocking fillers on the way for the kids that should have shipped on 2nd December.

Dispatched via Deutsche Post DHL (estimated arrival date: December 16, 2011).

Am now starting to worry they will not arrive in time! :o
