    I got an RA#########HK number. Do I place just the numbers (#########) on their tracking site? I did that but it ain't showing =(.

    I have the same problem.
    When you go to the HK Post website it asks for some kind of number, but I can't seem to find out what number it means.

    Trust me when I say that DealExtreme's tracking blows chunks.

    I don't know about in the US but for Canada their tracking works just fine. First they inform you if the package is still in the Hong Kong system through the link given on your account page. After it leaves the country that link will then reflect that. Once it enters your country you follow the appropriate link from the drop down menu to your country's tracking system (mine is Canadapost). Then it's updated in pretty much real time.

    It can take up to 2 days from my experience before it gets into the hong kong post system from getting the tracking number from DX.

    2 to 3 days before it enters the US postal system and becomes trackable.

    To promptly retrieve the record of your item, please key in your Enquiry Reference Number (if available), for example, 05000123A:

    From DX FAQ:

    "Live tracking is only available after the carriers have a chance to initially scan the package. Between the time the item leaves DX and the time it is scanned, tracking numbers may not show any results. For Express packages (sent via EMS/UPS), the delay is about 24 to 48 hours. For Airmail and Registered Airmail packages, it takes 3 to 5 working days for postal tracking to show online."

    GX255, if it asks for your Enquiry Reference Number, I'm pretty sure your package hasn't been scanned yet. Once it's been scanned, (and assuming you've clicked on the tracking number fom DX), you won't need to be inputting any numbers, the status of your package should immediately show up.

    From my experience anyway.
