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.

They removed my release date shipping and switched it to 1 day because "You placed that order before we got the release date (which was when SE said preorders are up) and if you cancel and place a new order, if your location meets the requirements it should pop up" so I canceled them and went with gamestop.

IIRC they require the order to be placed 10 days before the release date, at least that's what people are saying int he forums over there.

I did Release date shipping on the first day it was announced and it still says that for me. Hopefully I actually get it on the 22nd!

Mine still says "Est. Delivery September 22" And "Release date shipping".
I have it coming to my work, and we get shipments non stop all day, I just hope it doesn't get lost in the hundreds of packages. :(

I got an email from Amazon that said:

"We are writing to you today because you purchased a pre-order copy of Final Fantasy XIV Collector's Edition.

We are pleased to announce that we have reduced the price of Release-Date Delivery to 99 cents. Your order has been automatically updated to reflect this change – no action is needed on your part. Your copy of Final Fantasy XIV Collector's Edition will arrive on 22-Sep-10
."

Not only will it arrive on time, but cheaper too.
...
This isn't really the Amazon I know. We'll see, lol.

I've used Release Day Shipping in the past and it arrived on release day, just like they said it would. I've never had any problems with Amazon.

I love Amazon. I've never had any problems with shipping either. Of course, I live in the Pacific Northwest which is where their HQ is based out of. Not sure if that helps as their shipping center could be in Kentucky or elsewhere.

My Amazon pre-order still says arriving on the 22nd. I also received that email about release day shipping being $0.99.

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.

I ordered through amazon and got the $0.99 release day shipping, Ive never had a problem with amazon, they are great with returns and i sell stuff through their marketplace rather than ebay.

+1 amazon!

But as others have said, this is from me living in the continental US, elsewhere may differ :/

My estimated delivery date is still showing as the 22nd. However, I will not rest easy until my credit card is charged.
