Quite probably - a buy one get one free thing. I actually think one was sent on 25th May and the other the 29th. Now to wait for two more BR sets from the US of A.

Melbourne? heheheh - noones going there in a hurry!

 

FYI the 3-4 weekly flights from all 3 centres to Aus have basically been canned. All bookings cancelled until end of month.

 

 

It's just arrived in NZ after a week, so things are still moving.

 

 

Now it'll take two more weeks to get here by donkey cart.

The stupidly annoying thing is that according to the store's tracking, they are actually in NZ already - just on the donkey-cart coming from Auckland that has replaced the old-fashioned-yet-efficient courier network...

 

 

We've just had a different experience, had something sent out by the council on Monday afternoon that was here Tuesday morning. I joked that the council must have compromising photos of the NZ Post CEO to get that kind of service.

 

 

Then this morning NZ Post delivered the exact same item again, same envelope, same labels, same contents.

 

 

I'm waiting for the next copy to be delivered by them tomorrow, given the two-day period. Not sure what I'm going to do with all of these identical lots of paperwork they're delivering, perhaps put them on Trademe as scrap paper? Of if I shoot the postie will that break the loop?

Delivered this morning, so overall 8 days to get here from Melbourne, longest delay was a week sitting at Melbourne Airport.

Good for you. Remember to wash your hands afterwards, and turn on the fan if required to clear the air for the next person.

Not here yet (Chch), but not as bad as I feared.  Ordered July 7, sent from Mel to Syd overnight, I guess it'll arrive here in a couple of days - so within the 7-10 days estimated delivery (Kogan/Dick Smith) when I placed the order.

No movement since Monday - according to tracking, the package is still in Auckland.

I received my 22-5 package today, a week after my 1-6 package... but it arrived at least!

 

Looks like Birds of Prey or John Wick 3 will get a play this weekend I guess.

Arrived yesterday, 15 calendar days after been ordered. A little slower than normal.

Prices vary between titles; some more, some less, and some we don't have available here as well.

 

JB Aus has much better sales on UHD Blu-rays though. Every couple of months they are doing a 20-30% off or 'buy 1, get 1 free' sale, whereas the most we get here is 20% off and very occasionally a 'buy 1 and get 50% off the 2nd'.

 

They even did a sale earlier in the year that stacked a 30% off on top of an existing 'buy 2 for $40' promo, so I was getting a bunch of $20-30 ones for $14 each. And its only usually $10-15 for shipping; it's just untracked and takes awhile.

@shinychrome : thank you, I've never thought to look at the Oz site for BRs.

Yes, I was quite happy to buy The Handmaid's Tale S1-3 BR and get Westworld S1-2 for free.
