- Nov 21, 2001
I ordered several DVD's from Amazon recently, including some that have not yet been released. I selected the option for them to ship in as few shipments as possible. When they didn't arrive, I looked up the estimated date, which was listed at January, 2003. I emailed them asking why the ones available now weren't being shipped now, as they've done in the past. The email I received back indicated that one of the DVD's, A Hard Day's Night, had an indefinite release date (why are they preselling it then?) and that their policy was to ship them all at once if the aforementioned option is selected. Furthermore, the correspondence stated that it might not be released until 2009/2010. Needless to say, I canceled the order and now will do my online shopping elsewhere. Funny thing is that I once swore by Amazon and have probably spent thousands there.
