Wasn't Amazon giving away street date shipping for like $1 or something? Sounds like you got screwed over twice.

I just got an email from Amazon saying my order was shipped and the estimated deliver date is tomorrow. It was shipped out from Indiana and I live in California hopefully it actually gets here.

That's what you get for not paying attention to the shipment type and choosing next day instead of release date delivery. Release Date delivery means "We're sending it before it's released in the hopes it will not get to you too early and will come by the release date". Next day delivery means "we'll deliver it the day after the official release date".

Also yeah release date delivery was only $0.99 so...double burn.

I do the pre-order, in-store pickup method. That way it is there, and all I have to do is go pick it up at bestbuy, pay for it and leave.

just an fyi, if you ordered it a while ago "release day" shipping wasn't available yet and if you ordered it in the past few days "release day" shipping wasn't available. I ordered XIV a couple of days ago and it wasn't available. The best I could do was 1 day shipping... but it wont ship until the 23rd.

I can confirm that release date delivery has been available through amazon pretty much since the release date was announced, I pre-ordered the CE from Amazon on June 30th and got release date shipping. Good to know it's not available anymore, but that kind of sucks for the people with the "wait and see" approach.

"Release Date Delivery" was down as of sometime last week (due to an Amazon glitch) and came back on Monday, I'm sure you can change your shipping speed if it hasn't been sent yet.

No one to blame but yourself for not choosing Release Date Delivery for 99 cents. You'd have it in the next 12-16 hours, if you did.

Live and learn, I suppose. You could always go to Best Buy or Gamestop tomorrow, pick up a CE, and return the Amazon copy to Best Buy/Gamestop and get your money back. Win!

I ordered mine from Amazon on June 30, and release date delivery was $5 at the time. It was only a few weeks ago that they sent me an email that they were dropping the price to 99 cents.
So, it wasn't something they offered all along, just a special gift for us special people. :P lol

Yep, just like you guys I just checked my shipping status and it says it already shipped and should be here tomorrow. It was originally scheduled to be here the 24th so pretty good news. Although I guess because of the "glitch" I got screwed on the practically free release day shipping, but oh well 10 bucks for 1 day shipping isn't going to break me.

Well you realize that it says BY 4:30 meaning it will arrive at your house at some time before 4:30. So, chances are it is going to arrive while you are at work.
