I know UPS offers Saturday delivery, sheesh. I meant Amazon. I never saw any options for Saturday delivery and always got stuff on Monday if I ordered on a Friday. Maybe its a Prime thing? I'm not a Prime member.


Yeah amazon does do Saturday shipping. I do it all the time.

Why don't you stop making up lies. I order stuff overnight from Amazon all the time and they never deliver on Saturdays. They don't even offer Saturday delivery.


amazon offers saturday delivery. They use fedex which delivers on saturdays if they expect it to be delivered on Saturday. (atleast they do that for me)

Ontrac also delivers on saturday from amazon. In fact, I just got a confirmation for some stuff that shipped today with a delivery date of tomorrow.

What a joke. Had I known I couldn't use it right away I wouldn't have even signed up for the damn card.


if you apply in store you can use it right away, and they give you a receipt with a barcode that acts as your temporary card until you get the one in the mail

My BB.com order just shipped! NSMB is still in payment validating though, which sucks. Was hoping that they would ship together. May have to go out and buy another game if I only get the console.

Seriously thinking about canceling my order from TrU. No TVii or whatever its called at launch and a bunch of lazy ass ports is annoying.

Mostly though I just dont have the money and I'm trying to think of reasons to not get one. The only thing really stopping me is that if I decide I dont want it once I have it I can probably just turn around and sell it and get most/all of the money back.

Sigh..

Gamestop shipped my Wii U and it will be here Monday along with 17 Wii U games. It will take me a year to pay for it all but it is worth it. Nothing like being irresponsible with your credit card LOL

It depends upon where you live and if Amazon has local delivery in that area.

BB sent me an e-mail saying the console was shipped. The games however were not shipped. I'm going to take my chances on launch day for the rest of the games.

I pre-ordered the first day at Gamestop and didn't receive any call yet. Is that a bad sign?

I have no idea what shuffle ware or ports are but with 17 games I guess I am getting a few of those LOL


I ordered my Wii U as soon as gamestop put it up. I started checking the page during the press conference and kept refreshing until it was available which was about 2 hours.

I am a us postal carrier and we deliver tons of fed ex and ups parcels everyday now. Ones that say ups innovations or fed ex smart post are dropped off at your local post office on pallets by fed ex and ups and the postal service delivers them the "last mile" they call it. Alot of times you will see 2 barcodes on a package, one from fed ex and ups then a usps delivery confirmation barcode. The tracking on their packages end at the post office and the actual delivery scan comes from a letter carrier. I havent seen a box big enough to be a wii u on my route but the drops usually happen the day before for delivery, ie they get dropped off on fri for sat sat for mon ect.

Dont know if this helps anyone but we deliver tons and tons of amazon parcels

Just call your store and ask. My store told me earlier today that they have enough only for pre-orders.
