Amazon Day 1 Delivery reliability?

#1legend253Posted 9/9/2012 4:48:20 PM
Anyone have any experience with the release date delivery service?

As in, if I ordered from Amazon and paid for that option will I get Borderlands 2 on the 18th?

I got every game with release day delivery on the release day. I thought they stopped doing that though.

yes although they no longer do RDD for .99 cents. you need to get 2 day shipping for 7.98

Yeah, they'll typically charge you the sunday or monday before and it'll be there in the afternoon sometime on tuesday.

Only done it once and it was with the last Harry Potter book. It arrived some time in the afternoon. on that day so it's reliable on my one experience. I preorder Borderlands 2 on Amazon too... hopefully it will be on said day.

That's strange. 'Cause I just paid for a Deluxe Vault Hunter Edition not ten minutes ago, and there was the option for 1 day delivery. It cost $5, but it was there, and right below the 2 day delivery option.

thats 1 day not release day although 1 day and 2 day will give you the game on release day according to them.

Release day used to be 99 cents but they no longer offer it. so for me and my friends we dont use amazon anymore as its no longer cheaper than gs and shipping is 8 but tax is 4.

Really? Noooo. That was one of the main reasons I always pre-ordered on Amazon.

I've always had it come on release day with no problems, aside from the fact that it doesn't get here till like 7pm or so, but still..

As for the release day delivery/prime 2 day, if you can get a prime trial for a month, you could get the RDD for free (2 day delivery) and even when the trial runs out, it'll still come for free, which is what I did.
