Once again Amazon is guaranteeing that if you order Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince from them it will be delivered on Saturday, July 16 in the U.S., the UK and Canada, the date of its official release.
In Canada, Amazon.ca has teamed up with Canada Post to deliver the book and in the U.S. Amazon.com will be working very closely with UPS and the U.S. Postal Service. Amazon.co.uk has also updated their site stating that they will also deliver the book on it's release date.
Mike Badour, general manager, Retail Sector Sales, Canada Post said:
Building on the success of the last Harry Potter special Saturday delivery, Canada Post is excited to be working with Amazon.ca to deliver the sixth installment in the series to thousands of fans on the book's launch date. With this customized delivery solution, using our Xpresspost service, Amazon.ca customers living within our Saturday delivery areas can enjoy the convenience of having this much-anticipated book delivered to their homes, hot off the press.
