    So i just got a Gamestop email about my switch order.
    They said that they will be putting a hold on the money on 2/25 in order to get everything process and ready to ship. They will be shipping them out on 3/2
    I wont be getting mines until 3/6 since i pick the 2day shipping. (last time i did next day it still took 2 days, and when i pick 2days it took 1 day lol. So yea thats an amiibo lol).

    Just a heads up for others.

    Congrats. I did the Walmart layaway desk thing so who knows when I will get mine. TRU, Target, BB, GS are all within an 1/4 mile of each other by my house so I might try the midnight thing and see what happens. Pick the friendliest looking line. Mostly for my kids, I am patient enough to wait a few weeks.

    I was lucky enough to preorder in-store at gamestop, so I'll be getting mine at 12:01am CST on the 3rd.

    Here's hoping you get yours quite a bit earlier than the 6th =]

    Thanx. I hope i get it sooner also.
    I got have alot coming from gamestop, Switch and games and then some from acc from Bestbuy. Bestbuy hasnt contacted me yet but on my order page it says delivery date the 3rd.
    Would kinda suck to have the acc but not the system. But oh well i waited this long i can wait a little bit longer.

    @WiiuGold

    I feel your pain, my GS order is like $680 then my best buy is $125. My wallet has been crying. But on the bright side i will get some PowerupRewards points and at lest a $10 bestbuy gift card.

    I waited a few extra years to play GTA V on PC. Waiting 3 extra days is not bad.
    On a unrelated note, f publishers who started from PC Games and now make PC versions last. Ungrateful companies.

    I actually just got my email today. It said it would arrive 3/6, but I've been trying to find a way for the last week of changing the shipping method for my guest order. Turns out within the email it states I could just reply to the email telling them I wanted it day one. So I did and they obviously increased my total to pay for the shipping but I should now be getting it 3/2.

    Sorry bud, that is very unlikely (and I'd say impossible). They won't ship any earlier than march 2nd, and unless you paid for overnight you won't get it march 3rd. At best you may get it the 4th or 5th.
    They are only charging today in preparation for shipping out to make sure the payment processes fully before sending it.

    The only thing I've got coming in the mail is breath of the wild via Amazon prime, and I've never gotten a game late from Amazon so far when it comes to getting them on launch day. The rest is in store at GameStop, so as soon as I get out of school Friday I'll be getting to GameStop asap. Also I had all my stuff paid for with trade ins at Amazon and GameStop.

    I said in my post it is very improbable getting it Friday if it doesn't ship out earlier than the 2nd. You may get lucky and get saturday, but I wouldn't hold my breath. For 1 day overnight and 2 day shipping they are usually extremely accurate. I've only gotten it early for standard shipping, or an amazon package that ships earlier than expected (not expected to ship out to monday but ships late friday)

    Are you sure it got shipped today? Gamestop charged my card, but they shouldn't be shipping till 3/2. Unless you are a different country and/or seller.

    I paid the instant I ordered, and they sent it yesterday, confirmed via customer support. This is to compensate for shipping time they say. Using CDON.com in Norway

    Well bestbuy just shipped my guardian amiibo. They sent me a UPS tracking number that says it will be picked up today.
    I also have some joys and a charge grip that im sure will also ship by the end of the day :D

    It would be cool if i got them 3/2 but im sure there using 3day mail (even tho i can do much with them until i get my switch but still would be cool).
