It was released yesterday. It's a part of an order that says "Ship as items become available". Has anyone else had theirs shipped yet? If you couldn't use GCs and coupons to Amazon, there'd be no point in getting any preorders because you never get them when they are released.

My roommate ordered a bunch of (already available and preorder) DVDs on Sunday night. Charlie's Angels was one of them. He said that it shipped out with the rest of his "already availables" on Monday.

My copy shipped on 6/26 and arrived today 6/28. Their top record in my book was ID4 arriving on its release day

It doesn't matter if you paid your copy with $$ or GCs. My copy was free thanks to promotional and regular GC combo

This is unfortunately how Amazon operates. Earliest they've shipped a disc is the day before release. A couple of times it's taken them up to an entire week before they ship it.

Update

My DVD finally went from "1 On Hand" to "Shipping Soon". Here is Amazon's explanation for the delay:

"Charlie's Angels - Special Edition" has proven to be a very popular title. We have many customer orders for this DVD, and we've just begun receiving copies from our suppliers. We are filling orders as quickly as we can on a first-come, first-served basis."

I pretty much ordered this DVD as soon as it was available, so that "first-come, first-served" is bull.

Final Update

Received my Charlie's Angels yesterday... nearly one week after it was released. On a positive note for Amazon, I received my Lawrence of Arabia today, the official release date.
