Hi guys.... When amazon did that 3-4pm offer on 8th... If you were one of the lucky ones and got an order in, what does your order status say?

Mine changed to dispatching soon late last night and I chose express delivery which guaranteed delivery today... kinda worried/****** off it still says dispatching soon...

:rolleyes:

Mine has now dispatched (First Class). Got an e-mail telling me it was despatched also - due to receive on 12th Dec 06.

Mine originally said delivery on the 9th Dec but changed to the 14th Dec later.

Then it changed again to dispatching soon at around 6pm and then dispatched at around 10pm.

I received it this morning at around 9:30am.

The screwy status being showed on screen yesterday caused me no end of hassle and arguments on the phone with Amazon but it has actually come so I can't really complain.

Yes it changed last night to despatched. I was trying not to look but couldn't resist as I was convinced it would never turn up.

Go to any help page on the site and there is an option to get Customer Services to ring you that way it won't cost you anything to hold for 30 mins!

Just got off phone to amazon ... couldnt understand the guy shock hehe

the gist went like.. " yea there were soo many ppl logged on yesterday the delivery estimates got messed up.... your's say 14th now..."

i say to him i paid for express delivery guaranteed for today...

but yours says 14th estimate delivery so will come 14th... ;)

finally got a refund of £8 for money wasted on express delivery...

i really dont think the guy had a clue... and was just reading stuff from my account off webpage same as me

hehe

Yes I am well chuffed! But I did spend first time ensuring everything was setup for one-click ordering and then refreshing the page constantly.....Shame I did not book express delivery as I am away for most of the week and weekend....Ah well gives my wife the chance to catch up with our girls and their granny :D

Hi

I pretty much gave up when logging in a 3pm the first Wii's I saw where at the £400 price bracket

Looked every now and again for the next 15mins or so and wonder of wonders there was one in stock at £179 (frantic keyboard pounding later and one Wii is winging it's way to me)

Mine got dispatched today estimated to be delivered 12th or 13th. I realised it's being delivered by parcelforce. Not sure if I should be worried about that S=

my game arrived this morning via normal mail. and when my wife returned from the school run the wii was just on our doorstep! lucky non of you lot came around! unfortunately i am not home until thursday night. but my wife daughter and mother in law say it is great. i am amazed as my wife never hooks up anything. the temptation must have been great. i am impressed with amazon. great service unlike woolie who still have not fulfilled my pre order. btw apologies bad english. i am writing this from my phone.
