Hey Beren and others,

the Amazon.uk price is currently £36.00 for the deluxe edition (lower than the £42 quoted earlier in this thread). My order from a few months ago still has the £0.80 each copy.

Any idea what price they are going to charge me? Didn't you negotiate something with Amazon, Beren for exactly this situation?

Thanks,
Jeremy

Hey yes, I ordered about ten copies or so... at that incredible low prize. Then wrote to amazon to ask about what would happen, don't want them to charge me for 10 deluxe copies at the full prize... and they garanteed me that the price would stay the same! Once sold at that prize they don't change it.

But the amazon folks are sometimes smart, i did a similar order for the Companion and Guide at 0.98 GBP or something, and the bastards just cancelled it. And if you read their policy they can cancel the sale any moment... let us keep our fingers crossed!

I have a copy on order at just 80 pence but am expecting Amazon to cancel it. I am thinking that thousands of people will have pre-ordered at that price!

I will hopefully pick up an Alan Lee signed copy at the Ted Nasmith/Alan Lee exhibition later in the week.

I never seem to find those ridiculous prices!

Right now I just have the US and UK Deluxe and hardcover editions ordered, and one of the Alan Lee signed ones pre-ordered (from the exhibition).

Fingers crossed... :) I just got dispatch notification from Amazon.co.uk, and I have heard from a few others who also have gotten shipment notification. Looks like Amazon is honoring the price!

We will continue to report other Amazon price hiccups on Tolkien books here in the discussion forums, for those who missed out on the CoH price cut.

I also got a notification to say that my COH Deluxe's had shipped (at the 80p price). And the Regular Hardbacks at 20p (They had the Standard Edition at the incorrect price also last november).

Deluxe's Arrived this morning. Look Great. Match the Recent Lord of the Rings and Hobbit Deluxe's (mostly). By the way, last November you could also order the UK Large Print Edition of the COH for 20p (Due for release in September).

The US Deluxe has been delayed till May 16 according to my Amazon notice, but the UK Deluxe I ordered is en route. I wonder what the delay was (distribution issue, or maybe it hasn't been printed yet).

Took a while to arrive, but Amazon did send the deluxe edition.
Thanks for the heads up Beren
