On friday some memory shipped from newegg... I got my tracking number hours ago and I just now looked at it. It says Shipped on 7/2/04.. expected delivery date 7/9/04
WTF... I have ordered stuff before (and it came from the same newegg storehouse) and it only took 3 days from the time I clicked "submit" on the order to when it was on my door. And that was over a weekend too! I know there is a holiday.. but I thought surelly they were still transporting and delivering stuff. Even if they do have the day off... why in the hell would it now take 7 days to get here???

You think this is for real or this is an error? Before I have always gotten them 1 day before the expected delivery date...

Same thing here but mine is one day earlier and says 7/8/04. Sunday and Monday FedEx doesn't work IIRC because monday is a "holiday". It stinks but it is just a KVM switch for me. But then again, my iPod got to chicago (and then disappeared) in 2 days.

Also, FedEx is getting overburdened now IMO and that is why dates are set back so far and they are starting to lose a lot more packages. Just last week they lost a shipment from my mother's work and then they lost my ipod...I really don't feel safe and content with them anymore.

I placed an order with newegg last Tuesday(6/29/04) around 9am. I was expecting it to be here by Friday since everyone says how fast they ship things. But no, scheduled delivery on 7/06/04. I'll suck it.

well I checked fedex and at 5:38am my package arrived in Missouri (really close to where I live) and last time a package was there the next day it was delivered.

In general, ALWAYS expect your package to arrive one day earlier than Fedex estimates. This is pretty much a safety precaution on their part. Secondly, if you have ordered any items from Newegg that packed and shipped before Saturday July 3rd, expect them to take a little bit longer because of the holiday. Fedex won't be delivering on Monday, so business is pushed back one day.

Hope this helps,

Odie :)

Yeah, nothing at Fedex or UPS moves during the weekend. It usually does come a day early, but if you order, say, Wednesday, it might wait all the way until Monday (or Tuesday, if Monday's a holiday) to arrive.
