I have 2 choices when it comes to the checkout of shipping:
1. Expedited international (Averages 1-2 Business days) With a delivery estimate of: Dec. 16, 2011 - Dec. 28, 2011 at a cost of $11.98 USD
2. Priority International Courier (averages 2-4 days) with a estimated delivery of : Dec. 14, 2011 - Dec. 16, 2011 at a cost of $20.98 USD
Is expedited slower because of Christmas? Why is priority not slower as well if that is the case? It seems as though amazon have discounted the shipping price because they can not guarantee it will arrive before Christmas, but it still seems strange that they're prepared to stand by priority courier but not the expedited one.
Also does anybody know which company do Amazon use for each service?
Just curious really
Thanks for any help!
