Hi, I live in Finland and I just ordered a couple of Criterions from Barnes & Noble. I'd like to know what kind of experiences you've had with them as far as delivery is concerned. I'm expecting to receive my orders within two weeks; am I being optimistic?

I've only ever ordered CDs. They tended to take around three weeks. I've never had any problems with B&N and recommend them without qualification. A plus point is that all my packages from B&N have been marked as "BOOKS" which stops Customs from putting on additional duties....

I'm thinking about using that $10 off $30 coupon myself but can't find my CD wants list just now! And the offer runs out in the next few hours!!!

I ordered a DVD last year and it took about 4 weeks to arrive to Sweden. Hopefully they have improved the delivery time, but you never know...

I just got Peeping Tom CC. It took only 12 days! And not only did they write "books" on the package, they also wrote the value of my $39.99 Criterion as $4.

Only ordered once from them and the parcel took 35 days to arrive to Australia, others have had similar times.
The problem lies with Brokers world mail they use, it is very slow but it will arrive.

Have purchsed from them 3 or 4 times. Usually 3 weeks to the UK and they printed books on the customs forms. Generally good.
