Default Amazon.com vs Amazon.co.uk

I've seen at least a couple people on here who have yet to receive their copy of LOL4, who have ordered from Amazon.com. Plus a loonie friend of mine sent me a text today saying hers won't be arriving till April!!!

I would recommend shopping at Amazon.co.uk for any and all cds that have been released in the UK and not here in the USA. I've always had really geat service from them. I bought my copy for only 16 US dollars and change, that's including shipping. When I order from them it generally takes a week, sometimes less. Amazon.com is selling it as an import..... maybe they don't keep enough in stock so they have to keep re-ordering and that's why peoples shipments are taking forever.

Anyway, just a word of advice for anyone who is interested.

Jolene, I completely agree. I never did get my Best Of from them, nor my LOL4. And they string you along saying its coming soon, here's the next expected delivery date....on and on and then finally, nope, sorry, can't get it. You would have assumed they would have been affiliated with the UK Amazon and would be able to get it through them.

Thanks to a wonderful, wonderful Loonie, my LOL4 is on its way!

Mine was ordered through Amazon.com, I've just checked the email notifying me of the delay in shipping. I thought it had been ordered through Amazon.co.uk
Still waiting not so patiently.

Beware when buying abroad. I book a special edition CD and LP box set from Amazon.com as it was the cheapest place i could find , then got charged £16 in import charges even though it was only abou $50 !!
