    Does anyone know if dealextreme updates you as to whether or not the package is being delivered? Like how UPS would update you from being processed/shipped/delivering.

    I was only wondering so I could stop wondering about the status of being "shipped"

    That's ridiculous to even think of that. As soon as the package leaves China, they're no longer in charge of what happens.

    Ya know I've bought several things from them and I thought the same thing. WE'RE WRONG!

    First, know that you only get a tracking number on orders over $20.

    But, for orders over $20, you get a HK Post tracking number that works for Hong Kong AND several partner countries, including the US!

    That's right, you can take your RB#######HK tracking number and stick it in the USPS web site and get tracking info right to your door! It's all explained on the HK Post tracking results page, but I've never really paid attention to it.

    Like you I always assumed tracking stopped when the item left HK and never tried this before. Now I feel stupid.

    HK Post claims this works for a bunch of other countries too but I can't test that. For example, for AUS, they link you to: http://ice.auspost.com.au/

    nvm i guess i dont get a tracking number, my order was less than $20. oh well. time to wait. i was just wondering if they delivered it, would their website still say shipping, cause it might take days for them to receive that they delivered the product already.

    If there is no tracking, they don't know what happens to it once it leaves them and they don't know when it gets delivered. The website will say "shipped" and that's all.

    Does anyone know dealextreme.com on the back of their hand? Such as their shipping methods that is.

    I ordered my product on the date of 9/23/09 and as of now it officially says, on 9/29/09 status: shipped.

    My location is Texas and I was wondering how long does it take for them to deliver all the way down south over here? I would've thought that it would be here by yesterday, but little did I know, nothing came in my mailbox.

    FYI I only ordered the AceKard2i from dealextreme.com

    Thanks!

    The $20 thing isn't true, at least not for me two different times, I bought about $14 of stuff each time, and they gave me a tracking number, I had exactly 2 items in each order.

    lol

    I've ordered from dealextreme a couple of times. My suggestion is you wait a month THE MOST and if your package doesn't come by then its about time you should inquire their bitch ass. But really, from my experience they take a hell of a long time but hey, what can you say, they're delivering from China. I like their service (one time they had a delay in one of my items and gave me a notification through the items they were able to deliver, aww) and your package should come within that time. And If not you got a copy of the receipt, right?..

    I think the SOONEST I have had anything I order from Hong Kong, was 2 weeks. But def if its been a month, then inquire as to where your stuff is.

    I guess, but im very impatient D:, since my DS lite is bound to snap in half soon. (Also wanted a change of colors ;] )
    An UPS Truck came by and i thought they had my package... but unfortunatly they didnt D: which disapointed me.
