Have to admit to sniping regularly. If I am very interested in a particular book - I will pretty much always place a bid in the last seconds. If I am just semi-interested, I will often bid early.

Interesting...

Seems to be the 1959 Boxset. Box itself suggests this as no price on box. But the Fellowship should be the 8th Impression (not the 5th).

Wonder if the Fellowship is original to the boxset or was it replaced at some point.....

There's a copy on play.com for £22.76 (admittedly from a seller with only 78% positive feedback however)

Use them all the time. Delivery takes an extra couple of days. Amazon now own the Book Depository (but supposedly it still runs mostly independently - unlikely....)

Yes - they take payment at order time rather than when shipped.

If for any reason, publication gets cancelled etc, a refund is automatically credited to whatever payment method you used (i.e. Paypal, CC).

If you want to cancel an order - you need to email them.

If price decreases, no refund. You pay at the time of checkout.

However, over the years, I have managed to take advantage of a few mis-prices on pre-orders.

They used to have very regular 10% discount codes (which can also be used on pre-orders) but these have dried almost completely up since the Amazon takeover.

Also check prices on the .com and .co.uk sites as there is often significant price differences between sites (and you can order from either)

Packaging not brilliant most of the time. Bit of a lottery. But thankfully have had only two damaged books in approx 150 orders (both times they sent replacement without me having to return damaged books).
