Order from Amazon up until 9.45 for Christmas eve same day delivery
With Christmas fast approaching many retailers will take the decision to shut up shop and have a few days off whilst others will stay open but tell customers it’s too late to order for Christmas and any purchases will be delivered between Christmas and New Year at the earliest.

Sod the poor delivery drivers, they don’t get an early finish on Christmas Eve, Amazon expect you to still be doing deliveries up to midnight!!!
And warehouse workers of course as well, after all someone has to fill the box with goods.
Poor delivery drivers my arse
What about the poor
police ,fire ,ambulance workers doctors nurses
Who wil be lucky if they get a finish never mind an early one
At least the Police, Fire and Hospital workers / Ambulance drivers get paid a decent wage to work over Xmas including Xmas Day and Boxing Day no doubt for some of them. I can’t see amazon paying overtime or an extra rate for working Xmas Eve.
It might me time to get a new job. Doesn’t look as if you are enjoying the one you have…….?
No comparison to parcel delivery and those
who could be saving my life
they cant be paid enough at anytime ,never mind Christmas or new year,
If your talking to me Alan Paterson, I don’t and would never work for amazon, I’ve seen enough articles about the way they treat their workers and sellers to not want to do so.
i felt that you implied you did. Sometimes it better to have a “bad” job at this time of year than no job at all.
Sorry, i thought you were talking from experience and not something you read.
I agree with Alan.
@alanpaterson – I don’t disagree that the emergency services are under enormous pressure, but I agree with petestan on this one (and I don’t think there was any implication in what they said also)! If you knew the sheer pressure and stress that I’d wager at least 50% of the courier workforce drivers are under (a LOT of them self-employed too)………..
I know you said “sometimes”, but I think there’s a lot of leeway for argument over the “better to have a “bad” job at this time of year than no job at all”.
