Barnes & Noble: Speedy Delivery kraziness!!

Okay, I just have to report in on this: I ordered this batch of books (see below) on Wednesday the 17th and they just arrived today!  From NJ to MN!

This was my first time using Barnes & Noble (I used to go with Amazon).  Like Amazon, you get free delivery with orders over $25 from B &N, but whereas Amazon's free delivery takes like a week to 10 days, B & N's free delivery got these books to me in TWO days!  

When the UPS truck pulled up and delivered a Barnes & Noble box, I almost fell over.  New books.  Mood much improved.

Wow! I might have to use them sometime. I've heard Borders does the same thing now.

I didn't know that. It's wonderful!

Woohoo! New books always make my day better. I usually get my B&N shipments pretty fast as long as I order books that are in-stock. Any pre-orders can take a few days longer.

Oh Sweet!! Day after delivery - can't beat that.
And I just put blueish purple nail polish one and my nails almost look alien typing this. I've never warn this colour before - it may take some used to getting used to. Not, of course that you care about the colour of my nails, but I just thought I'd share that with you anyway.
Sadly if I were to order anything from Barnes & Noble, I'd have to pay for it since we don't get free shipping here in Canada. Although I did just get notice that Seduce Me At Sunrise shipped- EEEHaaawww
I really can't get used to this nail polish colour.

Liza: It was such a pleasant surprise. I guess these were in stock.

KJ: I DO care about the color of your nails! That sounds like a very daring color...perfect with SEDUCE ME AT SUNRISE.

That is awesome! I usually order from Amazon and very rarely B&N unless I have a giftcard or something. But I will definetely be checking them out now that I know they deliver so quick! You said it came from UPS? Amazon sends Media Mail. That must be why B&N is so much quicker.

Oh wow, that would make my whole week! Looks like I need to do some ordering from B&N!

Yay for B & N! Yay for CJ! :-)

Mr. McFeely just sort of popped into my head with this post. What is up with that name?

Christine said...

Heh. New Jersyites know how to deliver the goods. Maybe it has something to do with the mafia. LOL Kidding!!

... or am I? O_o
