I ordered mine on December 2nd. On Saturday, my credit card was charged for the Kindle, and the status changed to shipping soon. Unfortunately, the expected arrival date remains January 15th. I am really looking forward to receiving this item, as I am sure you are.
My dh ordered Dec 8 and, using the link listed in an earlier post, I see that my expected ship date is Jan 21 and delivery Jan 23!!!!! Yeah!!!!! I didn't see a ship date going to my account the regular way. Thanks for the special url. Amazon should be more direct this info. It's been hard not to know.
I tried the url you showed (http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/h.html) and it showed an estimated shipping date of 2/18/08 and I ordered on 12/2/07. I called the Amazon Kindle support number and was told they new nothing about the URL you show and that it is not "official", and that NO estimated shipping date is available for my order.
Is this a bogus site is Amazon giving me the "you-know-what"?
You can get the same status information by going to http://www.amazon.com from your cell phone. So I would think it wouldn't be bogus. But I'm curious if you changed anything after placing your order because I ordered on Dec.1 and have an estimated ship date of 12/31 to 1/14. Which, by the way, I am STILL in "not shipped yet" status. :(
LA, Ca I haven't received one email thus far from Amazon and I am checking now almost every hour to see if my status changes. I thought things would start to speed up a bit, seeing as it has been out now for more than a month. I have seen on other threads that some Dec. 1 orders haven't even shipped yet!:( Order Date: December 5, 2007 Order status: Not shipped yet Expected ship date: January 3, 2008 - January 17, 2008 Estimated delivery date: January 7, 2008 - January 21, 2008
Woo! Hoo! My order says that it is "shipping soon" Item is being prepared for shipment and I can no longer make any changes to my order!!! I ordered on Dec 4th at about 1pm. I live in Lebanon, ME. I seriously started to doubt that there was even such thing as a kindle. Hopefully I will see it soon. I will keep you all posted. Good luck everyone!
Hi, I just checked the mobile site from my Treo, and it's not displaying estimated ship dates like it used to. All I got was "Order status: Not shipped yet We'll notify you via e-mail when we have an estimated delivery date for this item. It will ship separately. You can cancel at any time." So if you haven't already checked, you're out of luck.
You need to go to the normal "Open and Recently Shipped" order page to see if it is shipping or not. I ordered on Dec 3, and just checked my status on the mobile site, and the ship dates were gone from there. BUT, when I accessed the order through the "Open and Recently Shipped" screen, it was listed as "shipping soon", same as C. Tice's.
Hope this helps! I can't wait to see when mine gets here :)
I see the Dec, 1 orders seem to have shipped; I Ordered Dec. 8, with overnight shipping (early rumor was that bumped you up on the shipping list) nothing yet. Yesterday I had shipping estimate of Jan. 8 to Jan. 22; that has since been removed and no estimate is available. Will advise.
Since I ordered on 12/5 the mobile site has indicated a ship date of 1/3-1/17. Hopefully this is not a bad sign- last night this was removed and replaced with: Order status: Not shipped yet We'll notify you via e-mail when we have an estimated delivery date for this item. It will ship separately. You can cancel at any time.
