Man shipping is such a shit show this year because of the volume. USPS, ups, FedEx are just not even scanning stuff except for upon delivery.

Yeah it hurts those who pre-order Yakuza games like me for sure. I wont play it very likely until the PS5 upgrade is out.

That's why I'm waiting right now... I know I won't play it until the PS5 upgrade, since there is no save transfer between the two systems.  So, paying $28 (I still have GCU) doesn't make a ton of sense right now.  Of course, I've done that before countless games that sit in my backlog.... so there is that.

On the flip side, I've chosen delayed delivery from Amazon on several purchases (including one on BF) and still received my items in 2 days (despite saying it would take 5-8 days).

"Made" $5 in digital credit.

Can't you return or price adjust? 

Can if the retailer is Target, WM, BB, or Amazon (return shipping tho?).

I think every year I average about $30 in digital credits this time of year. Get most of my stuff in a couple of days anyway. The trick is to order an item for 2 day shipping in the middle of a bunch of no rush shipping orders, and I’ve found they usually all get out in with that 2 day order.

What do you guys use the Amazon digital credit on? I used to always do delayed shipping to get Xbox Credit but they stopped that awhile back.

Watch out on Amazon, I got burned on a few bucks recently when they told me they don't price adjust. Good to know, they were always my go to on most purchases, now I will avoid big ticket and tech stuff.

Well instead of shipping my items ordered from walmart.com they decided to use some sort of local delivery from store method (which is not an option I selected while ordering). They delivered it to the wrong house, snapped a photo of it at a front door which is not mine. Not sure which house it was or if it is even my neighborhood... It said it would be delivered in a Walmart shopping bag so not sure if there is a way to even tell the person it was delivered to where it should actually go. What a mess. Never ordering from Walmart again.

mainly movies for me, sometimes mp3s. 

 

A lot of the time I will get movies that I already have on Blu-ray / DVD but are older so they were released before digital codes started being included with them.  That way I have a digital and physical version.  Usually they are cheaper or on sale also so the credit goes further.

Not sure what they are doing this year.

 

Had two deliveries from WM today. First was Link's awakening dropped off at the door... with no packaging at all, not even a WM bag, was just sitting on the mat. Second delivery was a fair amount of games in a WM bag, again with no other packaging. Games have a bunch of stickers on them. 

 

Other games I got from Target had the wraps so badly torn they were basically open.

 

Feel like I'm ordering from Gamestop.

Please don't mistake your personal experience or problems with your local area as being representative of shipping for everyone being "shitshow this year". I've bought thousands of dollars worth of stuff from Black Friday delivered through various methods and everything had normal tracking was delivered quickly. I also sent out packages and everything got there in time and had normal tracking. "My personal experience" is not everyone's experience, remember that.

🙄🙄🙄🙄

No shit? It’s YMMV? Really I never thought of that.

There are so many reports of jam ups in the delivery process that Costco sent out mass emails about it.


Thank you for your recent order with costco.com.

Please Note: Tracking on your order may not show any movement or initial scan for several days. There’s no need to worry! Your order is secure and will move through the carrier’s network soon. You can continue to track your order in My Orders or via the following link - xxxxxx

This holiday season, online shopping and shipping volumes are expected to be at an all-time high. As a result, small parcel delivery delays are expected. We’re working closely with our small parcel shipping providers daily. Our goal, and theirs, is to deliver your items as quickly and efficiently as possible.

We suggest you consider enrolling in UPS My Choice, a service that provides you text and/or email updates on delivery status, and provides you with options to reroute packages. We apologize for the inconvenience this short term shipping capacity may cause you.

We sincerely appreciate your business.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays,

Costco Member Service


There’s a goddamn message from the CEO on the Costco website but I guess that’s just a personal message for me.

GTFO.

That’s a great deal, but I’m probably years away from having a Switch at this point...

They do returns, which is what the guy needs to be able to order for cheaper from someplace else. Return shipping is the Amazon catch.

And as a delivery driver myself, I hate going to apartments. Why don't you just live in a house for Christs sake?

Same I used to do delivery and would rather not go up in apartments cuz of annoying lobby entrance. Problem is they have told me it’s been attempted to be delivered 3 times already. No issues with usps, amazon or ups at all. Sometimes FedEx even delivers it to my door except this one damn item still not delivered to this day

I have had around 16 packages delivered over the last week and a half.  Most of them arrived on time, a few were several days early, and one came two days late over the weekend (Best Buy w/ USPS).  Orders were from Best Buy, Target, eBay, and Amazon. The delivery trucks are making numerous loops through our neighborhood.

 

Guess we have been lucky with shipping!!
