Nothing worse than waiting for a package, knowing it's in the warehouse via tracking and you won't get it for days. Public holiday long weekend for new Years so no delivery until Tuesday.

All my packages have to be delivered to a Military APO, so I have become accustomed to waiting.

I had a case of TP stuck in Chicago for 12 days for some reason or another. It was way past its delivery date so Amazon sent another rush order for free.

Amazon (IMO) has a great customer relation office. I order a lot of things via the Subscribe and Save feature and have received a lot of free stuff due to delays in the mail.

I never complain once it hits the APO service as Amazon has no control over that area.

I send packages to my son in Japan (Navy) and they seem to get from Ohio to California at a pretty good clip (USPS standards) From that point on... Who knows what happens? I have seen them take another month to get to him. Usually though, a week or two is about standard.

I've have had letters take a scenic route through Afghanistan for a month before it gets to me as well. They have updated their addresses to include unit numbers to help elevate those issues.

Christmas always slows down package deliveries but for the most part they make it here within a week of entering the APO system.

The things that annoys me is it arrived in Brisbane about 4hrs late for a Friday delivery.

Amazon are ok here in Oz, but really no different from any other overseas supplier. Been a lot in the news here about setting up a physical presence - this will make a bug difference. Until this happens there is not a lot of value for me to buy other than eBooks from Amazon.
