    Is it just me or are postal devlieries from overseas taking far longer than normal at the moment.:( I've been waiting fourteen days for an oder from Play instead of the usual 5 days. I normaly get my CD-WoW orders in about three days from dispatch and i'm still waiting for one order after ten days.:rolleyes:

    I havn't ordered much myself recently, but I did get two DVD's from CD-WOW in the usual 3 or 4 days last week. Am waiting for one from Play at the moment, but I only ordered it yesterday :)

    14 days? Was the item out of stock? If not then you should contact them.

    I ordered 4 vds from play 2 R1's and 2 R2's. The R1's turned up after 4 days But the R2's took 15 days to turn up :eek: Was just about to contact play for replacements and they turn up.
    Cdwow dvds are taking a bit longer I normally get them in 2 days but at the moment its taking 4 days.

    That depends on whether you are an honest or dishonest person but let us know what decision you come to.

    As far as i can tell when you see your orders @cd-wow on the 'my orders' page change to SENT it usualy takes 5 days to deliver,but once you get the confirmation e-mailSENT+DISPATCHED it will be there in 2/3 days.whereas futureent.com now seem to take 5/7 days,which is monitered first class post!!!!!!!!how is this possible? CD-WOW RULE:clap: :smashin: :clap: :smashin:

    As you know Kev, I'm also experiencing extensive delays with my overseas orders from a whole host of suppliers :(

    I wonder if Royal Mail (or overseas postal services) are doing some extra checking on the post because there's a war on.

    Play have been the same for weeks. My friends are also getting delays on over seas orderes. FOTR had to be re-ordered. Donnie Darko was re-ordered twice. Play must be loosing alot of money with lost/double orders.

    A few of my orders from Play have disappeared in the postal system somewhere, usually it has to be a month :)eek: !) after despatch before they send a replacement. Same as BadAss, Donnie Darko was one of them.

    On average it takes about two weeks to get most of my discs.:(

    Do I have to be a Moderator to reply in this thread? :D


    Seriously, shipping times have been 5-10 for the US and 7-15 for Canada -both airmail. CDWow has been 3-4 days.

    Seems normal to me.

    I still use play now and again,but out of all the companys ive used they are the only ones who's films sometimes dont turn up/lost in post!!!!!!!!Maybe they should not put the BIG sticker telling everyone what is inside the package

    Play seem to be fairy slow alot for me, although their great prices and free shipping make up for it. I've never had to wait for than a week after dispatch, although they are slow compared to others.

    Well A replacement disk turned up from play today in under 3 days. :clap: Still no sign of the original which I recon is in a postperson's :D dvd player somewhere along with my CD-WoW order.:thumbsdow Looks like somebody is helping themselve's to every other disk I order. I'll know for sure if this is a pattern if I don't get a CD-WoW order that was posted on Sunday just gone, Sometime this week. :lesson:

    Should these disks ever turn up in there original packaging I will post an apology to all the posties out there.:devil: That is if it doesn't get lost.:rotfl:
