Help me if you can, I'm feeling down!

Hi, I pre-ordered the bundle and the Gretsh from Amazon.ca, and I took the free shipping. They told me it will arrive the 16th.

I was like "WOW WAYY TOO LATE" so I changed the shipment speed to Priority, which told me it would take 1 to 2 days. Now, they tell me my estimate is the 15th. I paid 30$ more dollars for a day sooner!?

Did I get scammed or something?

    Business my friend, its the one problem with shopping over the internet, the "I want it now!" aspect. If they shipped it early, there is a possibility you could have it early, so they wait until 9-9-9 to start the countdown.

    they might have sold out of the intial stock and now he has to wait till they get more in. Why didnt you just order it somewhere else?

    I don't know why people buy it on Amazon. Just pre-order it at a local store like Gamestop or Bestbuy. That way you can get it on the day it comes out

    I have Amazon Prime, so I CAN get it the day it comes out. With Prime, you can select Free Release Date Delivery. So for TB:RB, it will be here on 09/09/09. No tax. No shipping. You even get a few dollars off just because Amazon is awesome.

    I pre-ordered it when they were still in stock.

    Amazon is pretty awesome at times. Like when they have surprise sales on games or live point cards. Wish I would have come up with Amazon I would have a big old mansion soaking it up in a hot tub with my soulmate.lol

    Sometimes you'll get the game early if you preorder it online. :D

    Amazon should have release date delivery. You should have upgraded to that option.

    Thank you for writing to us at Amazon.ca.

    I am sorry for any misunderstanding regarding the shipping estimates of this order.

    We expect to ship this order by the date currently listed in Your Account:September 14, 2009. It should be delivered to you by September 16, 2009 - September 17, 2009.

    I understand your concern about the longer delivery estimates, I hope I can explain the reason for you.

    We have learned that these items are now back-ordered, and our supplier is not able to tell us exactly when they expect to have more in stock.

    Even upgrading the shipment does not change how long it takes us to obtain items and prepare them for shipment; it only reduces the travel time after the order leaves our fulfillment center as an availability estimate indicates that we must order this item from one of our suppliers.

    Here's the basic equation we use to determine your delivery date:

    (Availability) + (Shipping Time) = Total Delivery Time

    We will send you an e-mail to let you know when the order has been shipped. Please feel free to contact us again by visiting the following link if you do not receive this e-mail by September 15, 2009.


    with that said, i got the game on pre-order for about $50 cheaper so i'll just suck it up and wait a week or so. it sucks, but whatever..
