    It's called an estimate for a reason. It doesn't exactly arrive on the same exact date. Wait until after 5th February THEN start to make a complaint.

    um...what shipping did you get?

    and if the estimate is today through feb 5th, then you shouldn't be surprised to have not received it yet.

    If you went for free delivery then it usually takes about a week before they dispatch it. You'll get an email when it's dispatched to let you know it's coming. After dispatch, allow 2-3 days for it to arrive.

    Otherwise, you might've ordered something that was out of stock. On Amazon, "usually dispatched within 2-3 or 4-6 weeks", etc actually means it's out of stock and they have to wait for it to come in from their suppliers. (link)

    Yeah, plus they have to get past all those snakes...
    ..not to mention the pirhana fish...
    (they can strip a package carrier to the bone in less than 4 seconds!)

    ..I'd give 'em as much time as they need.

    For some reason amazon has been a little slow lately at despatching stuff. I put it down to them being very busy. Loads of great stuff on amazon and if you order over £15 worth its free postage.

    Why would you think it would be fake? Did you purchae it from a seller from Amazon.com or Amazon.com themselves? I've never gotten a fake card from Amazon.com themselves.

    Makes sense now why your shipment took so long, as the seller was probably slow on shipping. [​IMG]
