Has anyone received their orders from the half off sale during the holidays. They said mine shipped on the 26th of December and it's been over a week with no package arriving.

Etoys said that mine shipped on Dec 26 also. They sent it USPS and I finally tracked it. The USPS tracking said that they didn't receive it until Dec. 30. I have not received my shipment yet, but if the Dec 30 date is true I should get it hopefully today or tomorrow.

Mine has yet to appear on the tracking page so that's kinda what worries me about this.

Ordered Mr. Holland's Opus and Mary Poppins.....well, they got Mr. Holland's Opus correct!!! They sent me the VHS version of Mary Poppins when it clearly states on my order DVD.....Mary Poppins is on her way back to Etoys!!!

They do this crap quite frequently....I will probably not use them again in the future.

They fired 70% of their employees and closed 2 of 4 warehouses.
My order shipped 12/26 and still has not arrived. I think its time to call the credit card company.

Personally, I would never do business with Etoys, because of their harrassment of etoy.com. If you don't know the story of that one, you should look it up; ridiculous.

I'll count myself as one of the lucky ones on this deal. I ordered 3 dvds on the 26th, and they all arrived on 1/3.

I ordered from Etoys and the items supposedly shipped on December 26. However, the products still hasn't shown up. The tracking says it was picked up from Virginia. I think the weather has something to do with the shipping. Lets hope we all receive our items.

I called Etoys regarding my order and was given a refund for my shipping since I haven't received the items within 10 business days (using standard delivery). It came to about $20...which is not too shabby. I suggest anyone who ordered from Etoys and haven't received their items to call them up to at least get your shipping refunded.

I had ordered 4 DVDs on Dec 23: Toy story 2 pack, 101 Dalmatians, Lady and the tramp and Mr. Holland's Opus. I received all items on January 2. However, one of the DVDs had a few minor scratches. I hope you guys receive yours soon.
