Just an added note - the seller in the auction listing mentions having "a few" of these available, and has sold at least one through eBay already - so don't hold back, if you want one go buy it!

I got a quick response from Doug on this when I asked him, here is what he said (when he has some more time I will try and get more details)

No news on the interviews book. Nothing is yet settled.

Here's the Amazon Prime overview link.

From what it says, you pay £49 per year, and you get

- Free one day shipping on any orders

- up to four Amazon accounts at the same household can take advantage of the offer (so if you have family members that live with you and shop separately, they can also get free shipping)

- Discounts on Express and evening delivery orders

I haven't gone with the US equivalent, since I have not yet been in a position when I cannot wait for the Supersaver shipment (which over here is a difference of 2-3 days for Prime vs. 1-2 weeks for Supersaver).

I put in a small sample order with delivery to Birmingham, and it quoted £2.75 as the shipping cost. So you would have to place somewhere around 20 orders per year to your household to save money on the Prime account by my admittedly rough napkin math.

For those of you in the UK who buy Tolkien books at Amazon.co.uk, they have dropped the amount you need to buy to qualify for free Supersaver shipping. You used to need to order at least £15, but now you can get free shipping when your order just £5 worth of eligible items. I wish they would do the same for the USA!

From their announcement, this appears to be a permanent reduction, and not a short term offer.

Thanks for the note Josh, there are some good looking items there that I will have to keep an eye on. Welcome to be boards!
