Amazon UK managing director Brian McBride said: “Customers have responded positively to Free Super Saver Delivery during the Christmas period and so we are thrilled to announce that it will continue on into 2010 and beyond on the millions of items available at”

Amazon also said that it had a busy Christmas with 2 million orders delivered on its busiest day which was December 7. At its peak it said it was shipping over 1.2m units in just 24 hours.
