Question Early deliveries from Amazon Prime common?

I ask because I've only done three pre-orders since joining, and each has arrived on Monday. Wanted to know if this is a common occurrence to look forward to. The three movies were Scott Pilgrim, Moulin Rouge, and now Avatar Collector's Edition. I'm based in Los Angeles area, if that makes a difference.

It happens from time to time with me. I got Avatar in the mail yesterday too. Been a while since it's happened.

I've never gotten one early until yesterday with TZ and I've been pre-ordering for years.
it just depends on how far you live from the shipping outlets.
they ship out Tuesday stuff on Fridays most times, and obviously depending on where you live you might get it on Monday.
simple as that.

Every now and then I do. Specifically I remember getting Avatar and Toy Story 3 at least a day early.

It happens time to time with me. The last time was the 1st release of Avatar. Never has happened with games though. Just movies. Didn't happen with Christmas Carol. That is being delivered today.

Never received anything early from amazon and I live in the 4th largest city in the U.S. Not gonna complain though because my pre-orders for blu-rays and games have always been on time. The only time I've received early blu-rays is when I ordered directly from the warner bros site. Either season 7 or 8 of Smallville on blu was cheaper to pre-order on the WB site, and it arrived 5 days early - on the Thursday before the Tuesday release.

I get a lot of my Amazon Prime orders on the Monday before release. Most of the time they arrive on the release day though, and on RARE occassions it is on the Wednesday or Thursday after release.

I think it all depends on how soon you pre-order the title, and how far you live from the shipping centers.
