Ordering and Shipping

Hopefully, tomorrow, I shall cheer up.

I live in Sydney. The book I put together should have been part of my birthday present to my daughter. That dead-line has long since passed. I keep walking to the letter box and the front door, hoping.

From tomorrow it will be outside the number of days that it should take for the book toi be delivered. 

 

I am so disappointed!!

How many days did it end up taking from shipping to when you received your book? I’m in NZ and I’m at about 19 business days.  I don’t want to bother the Blurb staff since I chose non-trackable and I figure it’s outside their control.  I was hoping to get it in time to check it and then order a couple gifts for Christmas.  I’ve run out of time to check it first so am considering ordering blind so I can take advantage of their "buy 2 get the soft cover free" deal that ends tomorrow.

Can you give a link to that "buy 2 get the soft cover free" offer?  I don’t see it on the Blurb website?  Or is it a special deal only for select people?

I found out about the offer when I went in to order my book.  It’s only if you order your own book and I think only if the 2 you order are the same type of cover.  If you go in to order your book it should show up.  It isn’t a link so much as something that is there when you try to order.  It says:

"Get a FREE Softcover Book!
Buy two or more of your book in Hardcover (Dust Jacket or ImageWrap) and get one free Softcover. Just add one Softcover to your order above and use the promo code: softcover during checkout."   When you click on more details you get "se the promo code: softcover during checkout.

About the Book

Edit Book Settings
Edit Book Summary



New Zealand is a diverse and beautiful country. It is a land of contrasts: of snowy mountains and fiery volcanoes, of alpine deserts and rain forests. According to the Maori this is Aotearoa, Land of the Long White Cloud. This 40 page book is a small selection of images highlighting the beauty of the South Island. 

Join me on an armchair trip through this stunning scenery. Traverse the Southern Alps, take in the glacial lakes and braided rivers and step back in time to walk an abandoned gold mining town. This is not just a book, it is a journey. Come with me as I wander.

Ah sorry about that!!! I tried to only copy the info on the coupon but it looks like the copy spilled into the the other boxes on my book page.

Thank you Ozcloggie and Pinepig for posting your experiences of the shipping to Australia and New Zealand. I am in ACT, and, after over 15 business days waiting, was wondering what is going on! After reading your posts, I am happy now to wait for another five bus. days before I start to worry!
