Anyone still waiting for their order of the quarry to ship from the 30% off promo? Shows in my order as arriving June 24th, but the listing page shows it could be here much sooner.
I’m guessing it varies from person to person, but my more recent experiences with Target preorders have been just like you described. Had preordered Hades for the PS5 during a similar B2G1 sale last summer, and it took almost two weeks after the game released to get it. Then later last year, I had preordered Horizon Forbidden West back when there was a coupon to save 40%, and ended up getting that game almost a week after release (which blew my mind, since the order had been made MONTHS in advance and the local store got a ton of copies day one as expected). Long story short, absent a great deal, I don’t look to Target for any future preorders.
Hope your experience proves different and good luck on getting it sooner rather than later! Also, it might not hurt to touch bases with a customer service rep to express your disappointment in your preorder showing that level of delay. Besides putting that issue on the company’s radar, the rep might give you a further courtesy credit/discount on the game. That’s what happened on my end with H:FW when I had a chat with them asking why my preordered copy was showing a 1-2 week delay while the local store had plenty of copies. They took another $10 off the purchase, which I wasn’t looking for but appreciated.
