Just got off the phone with Amazon - my shipping estimate mysteriously changed to November 8th. Amazon will not honor the RDD on the order - I originally placed the order on March 6th. This is terrible service - I pay for Amazon prime to avoid things like this.
I talked to them about it too, but I did it online. I politely told them that when I preordered my 3 games ( Halo 4 LE, Halo 4 standard for brother, and Black Ops 2 ) it said 2 day shipping was release date delivery. Then I showed them the Halo 4 page where it said "Order now and select 1 day shipping to get it on release date. They then changed all 3 of my orders to 1 day shipping for free.
Maybe if I'm lucky ill get it today. I'm in the West coast. Scheduled For Early Delivery On: Tuesday, 11/06/2012, By End of Day Originally Scheduled For Delivery On: Wednesday, 11/07/2012, By End of Day
i was on the phone with them for like two hours last night after my delivery date was changed to november 8th and all the woman kept telling me is that they no longer offered the 99 cent release date delivery and she kept "explaining" to me that since I chose two day shipping when I ordered it on October 9th, it has to come two days after it's release. Amazon get your shit together. Oh and i am NOT in an area affected by sandy.
exactly. They giving some bs excuse saying that Release Date Delivery isn't offered, I had to speak to another rep before they told me the truth. They couldnt ship out because of the high demand. Like seriously why you gotta lie for? My delivery estimate was Nov 6th, after I complained all of a sudden its Nov 8th.
pre-ordered the limited edition the first day it was available to do so...
Delivery Estimate: Wednesday November 13, 2012 - Monday November 16, 2012
i use to be able to get 99 cent release date shipping... haven't been able to select that on any game this whole year... and every game comes like a week late now... i am seriously considering not pre-ordering games from them anymore...
This is garbage. I'm a prime member not in a sandy affected area and clicked release day shipping like usual and lo and behold- november 8th is the ETA. This kind of failure combined with the insulting "10 dollar instant video credit" - jesus... might as well pack me some complementary monopoly money in with the package to try to reach that level of uselessness. I used to buy TONS of games of amazon back when they gave 10$+ credits left and right- great deals! Not anymore. Instead of multiple games a month it's now more like a few a year. Other retailers like greenman are just destroying amazon with their deals.
Adam, go talk to a sales representative about it. Mine felt super guilty and upped me to expedited delivery, and it'll be here tomorrow and I'd get updated as much as humanly possible. Oh and I also got a credit for my inconvenience.
I won't be pre-ordering from Amazon anymore. My delivery date just got extended to Nov 8th too. It's funny because the reason I decided to pass up on better deals from other sites was because I'd have guaranteed release date delivery with amazon, especially because I'm a prime member. I feel like a fool.
I've had this happen with a couple of video games and a couple of other items - the delivery method was changed and I got no notification. I've already decided that if they can't hold up their end of the deal, then I'll return the item as shipped late, they'll have to pay (or refuse the item - don't open it, just hand it back to USPS or the PO (get a receipt though)). There are times, of course, Amazon has emailed me to let me know of a delay in shipping and that I can cancel the order if I change my mind. But that was a loooooong time ago.
Mine should show up soon. However, UPS is taking their sweet time to show up. Seriously, I'm gunna flip if they don't hurry up! Usually they get here sooner than this. But, now that I paid almost $10 on shipping, they wanna take their sweet time! GAAAAAH!!!! lol
I ordered on Microsoft, wasnt even going to buy this game but their $25 credit towards a future game snagged me and i chose free shipping and it arrived a couple of hours ago. First game i havent bought on Amazon in a long time and i think i'll be canceling black ops 2 and ordering that from Microsoft. Buh Bye Amazon!
