My SE just shipped. i live in the northwest a few hours from Seattle and although the tracking on my order says it will be delivered on the 18th i just spoke to an amazon representative who assured me that it will indeed arrive tomorrow. If It doesnt' heads will roll
I've spoken to several representatives about this (as I have the same problem, even started a thread on it this morning) and have been given wildly conflicting reports.
First three calls, they are so sorry. Shipping is now free, and I receive $15 dollars of store credit (this stands whether or not I receive the game late at this point).
Then, the fourth guy I speak to (via chat), assures me that I should disregard the Estimated Delivery Date of the 18th, and that I will receive my copy on the 17th.
However, the fifth person I spoke to (via telephone), only reassured me I would receive my package on the 17th until I finally convinced her to take a look at my tracking information, whereupon she corrected herself and said that it is very likely I will receive it on the 18th.
I then got a follow up e-mail from the guy I spoke to via chat (the fourth guy I spoke to), who once again reassured me that my order will arrive on the 17th, and that I should disregard UPS's currently estimated delivery date.
So, I am totally lost right now. I don't know what to think. I have no idea if any of these guys have any idea what's going on, and which person to trust and which person to distrust. Or whether I should trust any of them.
Point is, get a second opinion. None of us here need false hope.
