Thanks Amazon.ca!...

I had a preorder for:
Trek:Season 5 (2 sets. 1 for me and 1 for a friend)
X-files Season 6
Band of Brothers
Babylon 5 Season 1

I first had ordered it with Total Action Universe. After a week and a half of telling me my order shipped. I noticed it was canceled. So on Monday (11/11) I ordered it from Amazon.ca. I upgraded to the expediated shipping. Which when I used last time from them. I got the stuff in around 4 days. I got an email last night saying my order shipped yesterday (11/12). So I was hoping I might get it this weekend. To my delight, I just recieved the order from them next day by DHL. Now granted the order was over $500 canadian. But, still it is nice that some companies appreciate large orders and the customers who place them.

ps-Actually, the best part of this all. Is that the order even with the shipping was over $20 cheaper than TAU.

Same here but I have faith


and also a ton of other DVDs and games to keep me busy.

But seriously I does take some time. My estimate said it would take up to Nov 24th. After that I'll start to worry.

I'm still waiting on my orders as well.

I wonder if it's shipped ground all the way? Ironic thing is they're not that far from me geographically yet it takes weeks to get their stuff (cheapest shipping). I think alot of stuff is getting hung up in US customs these days.

Whenever I order from them. I upgrade to the middle shipping "Expedited". It is only a few dollars more because of the exchange rate. Maybe, it is like going from media mail to priority mail.

Ah, I'd rather wait an extra week and save some money. No biggie as long as I get it in one piece.

Unfortunately the next level up is double the price, and if you order two or three items it starts getting expensive.

Great job!

I ordered via std shipping and it took just over a week to arrive! Not bad seeing that I am halfway around the world in Singapore!

Same with some friends I know.
