    The Super Saver shipping option ended mid January iirc. Checked out the T&C's on it some time ago. I'm not able to get any shopping done as every month, there seems to be 'Fires to put out' :/

    Much of a muchness?

    Thanks.
    I have ordered a few from Amazon UK, no issues at all. They delivered faster than Kalahari a few times.

    Been a pleasant experience, of course depends on the vendors and shipping type i.e. combining purchases for cheaper/lengthier shipping or separating purchases for pricier/faster shipping.

    Most orders are with Amazon for cheaper shipping (only pay shipping on 1 CD), estimated at 24th February (was nothing yesterday), and 5th & 8th March.

    Other vendors used (all ordered 4th February):

    youwantit-wegotit - 1 CD - received 14th
    Jim ExSelecky (seem affiliated with Amazon) - 1 CD - 16th
    nagiry - 2 CDs - 1 CD received 21st

    Second CD from nagiry arrived cracked, was severely damaged. They refunded the purchase.

    Sigh, thought CDs were tax free - got one now and paid R25 customs tax. Got about 10 more coming which will be R250 at least. And more customs delays.
