    My apologies - I wasn’t clear. This is for Amazon France only.

    What did you order ? Your order must be in excess of 25€ and must be expedited by Amazon France and not by a third party seller.

    I just did it. I have an outstanding order for the Dire Straits box set as it’s at its cheapest on Amazon.fr.

    I ordered it again and applied the code, which both worked and effectively paid the postage. Once it had gone through successfully, I then cancelled the existing order.

    Did it actually say gold vinyl as opposed to yellow ? There appears to be a difference.
     
  9. Does it only work for prime members, or if shipped within France, or if you are registered in France. Not sure.

    I only tried to order items sold directly by Amazon.fr

    No, no and no. As you can see, both myself and @Arknine are in Ireland. Being a Prime member in your own country does not make you a Prime member in a foreign country. All you need is to have an Amazon account to be able to use other Amazon sites.

    However in addition to the terms and conditions I have cited above, you must also see the banner offering the 5€ discount when navigating the French site. Otherwise, for reasons best known to Amazon, you’re not eligible.

    There seems to be a distinct gold release in the USA. The European ones (once touted as gold) ended up with Yellow on their hype stickers, after all. On top of that, hues vary, as the official Dylan site has advised.

    thanks. I tried to order it about 15 minutes after you posted this and it wouldn’t let me. I could see the discounted price but could only add the €65+ versions to my checkout cart, not the one at €33.
    This morning I tried again and now it was possible to order the discounted version, but with a tentative delivery date of 29th of October. So I placed the order, let’s hope it does indeed arrive.

    oh nice ... quite interesting, because after my order, my price became 35,45 Euro ... still a good price, just curious why these prices at Amazon always are different upon ordering than advertised ;(

    Probably the tax/vat. I believe the price always includes German vat which is lower (at least for media) than in most European countries. So when you place your order, the vat is recalculated to reflect your own country’s percentage and thus the price rises a few percent.

    As reported in the thread on this Rolling Stones release, Amazon Germany DID deliver the Super Deluxe Edition sets to those of us who were lucky enough to order it for 25 Euro (or whatever the actual price was)! So, you should be OK.

    As I wrote in the Amazon UK thread, I have, and I am not alone (check the classical mega box thread!).
