Scholastic is a couple bucks more, but is getting it to the schools on the RELEASE DATE, Amazon is SHIPPING via Prime on the release date (Nov. 15) to be rec'd November 17. I'm canceling my Amazon order.
I wouldn't cancel unless you can buy the hard cover version locally for the same price (very unlikely). Like the person posted after you, the Scholastic version is the soft cover and they had major issues. At least with Amazon, if you have problems, they'll send you a new one immediately (probably 1 or 2 day for your troubles)..or a partial refund if that's what you request.
You'll probably have a 2-3 week turnaround with Scholastic, if there are issues.
I think that if Amazon could, they certainly would. I don't mind waiting an extra day or two. My kids always end up with so much homework during the week anyways, I'd rather they not have the distraction until the weekend.
I agree. When I ordered copies for my school I was under the impression that it would arrive on the release date, like the Harry Potter books did. If I had realized that I would have just bought them in the store in my town at Barnes and Noble.
