I got a 3 gift certficate via Amazon after completing a short survey they emailed me, and as I couldn't find this book in any of the WH Smith shops in Norwich I used it to buy the book online last night and to cancel out the postage costs and get a hefty further 20p off the cover price.

Imagine my surprise when I see the book in WH Smiths today...

Haven't found it in a Smiths near me yet! Will try a few other places and then order although postage costs are a pain.

Mine has also been dispatched via Amazon. I have a delivery date between Thursday the 8th of Jan and Thursday the 20th of Jan.

Basically it can arrive at any time then!

Where the bloody hell is mine? Wasn't in WHSMITH, had to order it online when it was in stock and still no shipping. Even the phone line doesn't work


UPDATE

Processing

So much for changing to shipping, the last time I ever order anything from Retro Gamer!

Not being sold in many of the main stores after they said it would be...
Not being shipped when it's supposed to be shipped...

Tried to order on Amazon: "Sorry, this item can't be sent to your selected address".

Tried to order on imagineshop.co.uk: "Out of Stock"

Is there another store where I can buy it?
Thank you
