Bestbuy still hasn't sent my red 3ds I bought a week before release.. So it's not only the MM ones that are delayed.

Really? Best Buy fucked up big time? How are they supposed to ship units that they didn't receive in a timely fashion? Not to mention Friday was Valentine's Day (A high volume shipping day); Monday is a Federal Holiday; And the weather has been shitty in most parts of the country all month.
 
Maybe I'm just old or wasn't raised to be an entitled shit but I can remember ordering clothes out of magazines as kid and having to wait 2-4 weeks for them to arrive with no tracking updates ever.


You're just old


  

All this and yet Groupon was able to ship their Red ones out on Thursday lol. And you could still buy them yesterday at 10% off too. Haven't checked yet if it's still in stock today.


Groupon shipped their consoles already? I don't believe it.

Of course this is "N", it's always "N", and always will be "N"(at least in North America). I can't believe how a once great company has fallen so far from grace. It's obvious to anyone with a brain who is at fault here.
 

  
Nintendo is a horrible company. I don't know what they were trying to get with all these supply issues but it has left nothing but hatred from me. I used to only buy nintendo as a kid but I just can't stand them anymore. Add in their horrible online network and their horrible account system. It's 2015 and nintendo is still living in the early 2000s.

Just the name NEW 3ds xl proves how horribly their company is run.

Looking at the Best Buy forums, it turns out people are also not receiving their black units which are still on stock at bb.com
 
So yeah. It is partially Nintendo under producing, but it also looking like Best Buy being Best Buy.


The black one is sold out at bestbuy.com

  

Does Groupon still have that deal? I might as well cave and get a dumb, red one.


If it's still for sale don't buy from groupon.. you might get it before the end of the year.

Got a Majoras Mask 3ds and sold the sucker after seeing the ridiculous amount of money people are paying for the thing.

Went to TRU last night, bought a black N3DSXL and purchased a gold Triforce decal for it.

This whole deal with amiibos and these 3DS' is beyond nuts.


Where did you get the triforce decal?

My skull kid le from amazon ordered friday now shows status "on the way" arriving tomorrow.  I have never seen that status.  Is that new? I thought it should say "shipped".  

 

It's like they handed them over to some guy with a truck and asked for status and he told them "On the way" and they just put that on the order page.

Has anyone with a Best Buy order waiting to ship not been charged, or had the charges put back?

So funny thing. I remember responding to GMC97 about the Commerce Target in CA had 4 or 5 MM N3DSXLs according to Brickseek.  I decided to check today and it's now down to 1 on Brickseek and the Target website still says In Stock while the Red and Black are still sold out. Not fishy at all. :-

For anyone without GCU and wanting the regular console and regular majoras mask game, toys r us has a deal right now where you save $10 if you buy majoras mask and ANY 3DS XL system (including non-new).  Website has black and red in stock for shipping.

Still pending for me, which is funny since GS shipped both systems already and hasn't charged me yet.

I'm wondering if the charges aren't there because it is in the process of being shipped, and the pending charges went away for the same reason.

I figured out what I want to use my $15 gift card on for Target. They have Game of Thrones Seasons 1-3 for $30 each. Gonna get season 1 Seems like a lot for one season but I'll probably sell it when I'm finished with it.

Groupon shipped the Red one I ordered last Wed on Thursday lol. I was originally planning on cancelling it after on Friday after scoring an MM edition at Target. They shipped it before I even had a chance.

 Amazon customer service is horrible, never trust anything they say. They try to say they have the best customer service but they out source it, at least Walmart,besbuy, toysrus you get America. All Amazon does is slap on some gift cards if you complain and pretend like they're so awesome, and then ban you if you ask for too many refunds. I hate Amazon customer service so much.

Yeah, I haven't dealt with them much, but this was beyond terrible. It's like the CS reps just made shit up to sound cool and keep me happy for the moment. It was obvious from the first message this was outsourced, as every name that was signed was as non American as it could get. I really don't care where the CS rep is from, or where they are in the world, but I do care about proper information being given and following through with what is promised.

non-American... Not as "non-American" as you may think. 

 

But I agree. I usually have a great time w/ Amazon CS but I know that sometimes they BS to get you off. Often times they're willing to compromise and update you with information later.

Brick seek is definitely wrong, you have no consoles there lol



That's just false.

That picture is so satisfying. I have been saying that was what they were going to do for the last 100 pages of this thread. People arguing with me piss me off.


Amazon CS is horrible? I've been a Prime member for years and I've NEVER had an issue with them. Their CS department is hands down the best CS department I have ever dealt with. Not only do they reply to my emails within a few hours of sending it, but they'll issue me random credits when I'm not even asking for one. They also tend to find an answer to any of my questions in a timely fashion and do a fantastic job in assisting me with any disputes between 3rd party sellers. Maybe it's because I've been a Prime member for so many years, but in my opinion, no retailer has a better CS department than Amazon.

That's it? Everything else I've ordered from them has shipped except that, getting a little worried here, especially since I didn't bother going to try to get one on Friday since I had my preorder.

I wouldn't be too worried just yet. See what happens tomorrow. I think 80% of people who ordered Majoras Mask 3ds xl are in the same boat as you. Now if majority of people got theirs shipped and yours haven't. Then I'd start panicking.

Not doubting what you're saying but it is still very likely that others will receive their BB orders before anyone receives a groupon order since groupon is infamous for A) uploading a tracking number once they've created a label (not when it actually ships) B) almost exclusively ship via SurePost or Smart Post which to many parts of the country take 5-7 business days.

Well mine tracking for Groupon order says UPS, schedule to be delivered Tuesday. Yes I was shocked as well. I used free SH.

Read like a couple pages into this thread, Best Buy has told multiple people they will probably ship monday-tuesday and will be delivered by thursday.
