Hi All

I ordered some DVD`s this morning and when i checked out i noticed some changes in Amazon`s Shipping Prices!

You can choose now between Intl. Courier (1-4 Days) then the NEW Expedited Intl. Shipping (5-10 Days) and the normal Standard Shipping (NEW 11-21 Days!)!

According to this info the Shipments should arrive quicker and also the Shipping is much cheaper now! Standard is only $3.99 per order and $1.99 per item!!

Thanks for this one.

But I don't know about Amazon getting back in my good books, think about, most pre order are at 25% discount now instead of the usual 30%.

They have increased prices and reduced the shipping, so long term, the only benefit is that it is marginally cheaper to buy one DVD, but after that there is no gain.

Hold everything.
Just went to buy a single DVD and was charged $5.98 standard shipping, so apparently it must be $3.99 for basic postage, then $1.99 for each and every item, including the first.
I suppose 2 bucks are 2 bucks, but I was hopeful for a while that amazon had come to their senses.

I like it a lot!

But seriously, it is something. $8 just to ship one DVD was too damn much. Especially since it probably costs them $2 to ship it.

Thanks, this was very useful.

BTW - you don't have to cancel and re-order, you can just change the shipping method from your "account-page". This is useful when you used a GC.

where the new amazon shipping rates really benefit is to those buying VHS. The cost of shipping internationally is alot cheaper now for VHS tapes
