Amiga Forever 2008 Delivery

Hi all, i've purchased Amiga Forever 2008 Premium edition (download + physical product) on 29/12/08 direct from amigaforever.com
I know there will be delays for new year but its now been two weeks and they claim for the product to be delivered within 9 days to the UK.
So, what i would like to know is, has anyone else in the UK bought direct from them (i believe they're in Italy) and if so how long did it take for the delivery to arrive?

Thanks

Mike

Hi All,

I have bought every version of Amiga Forever from 6.0 to the current 2008 Premium Edition from Cloanto. On three occasions there were protracted delays in delivery (can't remember exact details), and on each occasion the explanation was that the package is very popular (especially immediately following release) and they were having trouble meeting demand, were trying to fit in extra production runs, etc.

Each package has eventually been delivered and they have been extremely apologetic when a delay has been experienced. On two occasions I was treated to a complimentary boing ball decal and on the last occasion I was given a link to download a complimentary 2008 Value Edition of Amiga Forever, with a key which I was told I could pass on if I wasn't planning to use it! (Still haven't shared it with anyone! ).

My advice is to wait, and all will come good in the end.

I guess i'll just have to wait a little longer for my order.

Scrappy, yes they are very thoughtful of their business and the support they receive from all Amiga fans.

So it's for the best that you wait a little longer and you should check the delivery number with your postal office for tracking the package.

In my experience their customer service is crap. I send a support mail weeks ago and no response. No company can get away with that as far as Im concerned. The package is handy though but the way they pick up on this is a total put off. Two thumbs down.
