My transferred order for ID4 from Reel was shipped 7/24. USPS tracking shows received at 4 PM at Carrolington, TX. Received on 7/26.

My other transferred order for Star Trek II was shipped 7/25. USPS tracking shows received at 4 PM at Carrolington, TX. So far, nothing. Thought I would receive it yesterday or today based upon my ID4 shipping. 7/24 to 7/26 - 3 days.

7/25 - 7/27 is 3 days, but today is the 4th day.

Anyone else have similar experience or varying shipping time?

funny you mention that. I have the same movie from the same location on the same date. Im waiting too.

Also no confirmation on Phantasm IV (Which comes out 8/1) and usually buy.com is great with pre-orders.

This scares me with all the limited editions i ordered for Aug & Sep

I live 10 miles from Carrolton Tx. 95% of the time the packages take 2 days (ship 25th and arrive 27th ie). Somtimes a package will take 5 or 6 days for some reason. So far they have all made it eventualy.

This has puzzled me for some time. Every order I place says it was received in Carrolington, TX. I've received packages from CA, IL, PA and FL yet they all say they've been received in Texas the very next day. But to answer your question it usually takes 3 days to receive it once shipped. And the shipping confirmation email usually takes 5-6 days to receive. Its sad that the USPS delivery is faster than Buy.com's computer system. Which is snail mail again?

Well, finally got my Star Trek II today.

Interesting. My credit card has been credited today for ST II. Also the day I received my ID4, my credit card was credit for that too.

They all were for the correct amount. No shipping charges and $10 deducted for the Reel SC.

Buy came thru.

Lucky you man. I ordered ID4 since two months before reel went under and i'm still waiting for BUY.COM to ship it. They told me they were out of stock.
