Praise for Amazon.
Unusual I know but I have to commend Amazon over a recent purchase. We made the mistake of asking the oldest what he wanted for his birthday which is tomorrow. Mistake for two reasons. We asked last Saturday only giving ourselves 6 days if it was something we could give and two he came up with something I could not find in the UK.
It was a Peanuts watch from Timex. As someone who has collected cartoon watches over years I can only agree with his choice. I searched online for it. Its been sold out since November 2020. It was only introduced to the market in September. 2020. Others in the series available but the Charlie Brown version was OOS.
There was one available for Amazon.com in the states. I pondered a day and decided on Sunday to place the order. I prepaid the VAT but still have thoughts there would be a charge somewhere down the line from UPS. It was posted Monday and arrived at his house yesterday. Two days from the states to UK delivery is for me a fantastic service and no extra charges.
At the end of the day I paid less for it to be delivered from the states that the retail price in the UK and certainly cheaper that the only ones I saw on ebay who were trying to ask roughly double for it.
