I was paying 10 bucks for shipping and it said it would SHIP on the 23rd. Mind you, I live in Hawaii, so I'm used to not getting cheap shipping, but shipping the day AFTER release? Frick that.
Yeah I hear you on that one. I almost shat myself when I found out Amazon would actually deliver a computer case to me on Oahu for FREE with their super saver shipping. That site never ceases to amaze me. The case even came within a week! Other sites would have easily charged upwards of $50 for that.
I was going to jump on Amazon for the CE pre-order as well, but decided not to because of the lack of release day shipping for us non mainlanders.
