Can anyone confirm that amazon is still shipping the kindles in the original box? I ordered a 2nd gen fire for my son for Christmas and got the accessories I ordered, but not the fire. We actually ordered a second one yesterday because it was $30 cheaper on cyber monday, so we plan on returning the one that has not arrived.

Where are we at on this, can someone help? This was the last scan:

Date Time Location Event Details

November 25, 2012 09:23:00 PM Indianapolis IN US Departure Scan
November 25, 2012 06:30:00 PM Indianapolis IN US Shipment received by carrier
November 25, 2012 01:40:32 PM Whitestown IN US Shipment has left seller facility and is in transit to carrier

Unless you checked the gift option, it will probably arrive in the product box and not be inside another box.

If it is the only thing coming in and you did not mark it as a gift then it will be in its own box like Old Rocker stated.

Im thinking its long gone. Everything I order from Amazon always arrives on time. I have honest postal carriers and ups delivery people here in my small town. I wonder if I will even get the second one, that will be a big disappointment to my son and both my husband and I if our son only gets 3 presents after spending so much.

Old Rocker says:
If the tracking hasn't updated by now, contact Amazon customer service. They can help track it or resolve the issue. I've had two things that I remember disappear in shipping before - a new release video game and a high-end radar detector.

If the shipper has a thief, they want to know about it as soon as possible because if they stole one thing, they probably have stolen before or will in the future.

Yeah, good advice, Old Rocker. I love Amazon's "frustration free" shipping packaging EXCEPT for the fact that usually the product name is seen on many packages.

Good luck, J. Long

What is the commitment date? Who is the carrier? Have you contacted the carrier? Might check with them to see if there is any more info.

Jazzy_Jeff says:
Go directly to the UPS page and it should tell you the date for your delivery.

I thought the carrier was UPS, when I track it that is what it takes me to.

Jazzy_Jeff says:
If it is through UPS the tracking number should start with a 1Z I believe. If so then copy that number and to the UPS page and paste it to track it. It should tell you your delivery date. If it is already past then contact UPS directly by phone.

Tell me where to find the tracking number that doesnt exist. I already have a tracking number as you see, otherwise I would not have the information of the last scan in Indianapolis.

On your Amazon Account there should be a topic that says Your Orders. Click on that and you should see your order. There should be a Track Package Button. Click on that. Your order information should open up and tell you who the shipping company is and the tracking number.

Also you should have received an email from Amazon that should have that number also.

The tracking number would be in the email that you got when Amazon shipped. You should also be able to see it right here on the site under Your Orders, and Tracking for that shipment.

I do know that the UPS trucks around here have made a drastic change to their routes. We had a delivery yesterday before 1:00 in the afternoon. I used to never see them before 5:00.

Who said you were an idjet? Amazon doesn't track people tracking their orders.

No one said you were an idiot. You asked questions and I answered them to the best of my knowledge.

This time of year I have had them here after 8 pm. But the tracking page always said out for delivery.

WOW, that was really snarky and uncalled for. Jazzy was just trying to help you like everyone else. No crap you have a tracking# but have you called UPS instead of whining here? Geeze, try playing nicely

No I didn't miss anything. I've done all I can do. Maybe just contact Customer service. Good evening to you.

You really need to contact Kindle CS. They can offer you far more help than customers can.

With Amazon, you won't have to fight to get your money back. Also, assuming you used a credit card to pay for them, if there are any issues, you can dispute the charges with the cc company while you work it out.

Since there is no info for today, it seems as if there is something explainable at the Columbus hub. Sunday doesn't really count either, even though it moved on a Sunday.

If you are going to get upset with customers that try to help you then just contact customer service or the actual shipping company that is delivering your packages. They would have more answers than us simple customers who have no access to the tracking number or the computers of the company you are dealing with.
