    Has anyone ever ordered from USAHotStuff.com? What has your experience been with them if so? Since they are one of the few places that take mastercard.

    I wish I heard that before, Someone on here said they took mastercard. So I looked around and didn't see much info on them, So I took the chance and ordered from them. I ordered 2 3Sky3ds and 2 R4i 3DS Red, So My total was about $215.00. They gave me a tracking number, But it doesn't seem to be working yet. But it is marked as shipped on 3/15/15, But that is a Sunday. So the mail doesn't go out, They say 1-3 days for a tracking number to work, But right now all USPS says is

    I was about to order from them since I read they take MasterCard, too. Have you received the card or any updates?

    Tuesday night DHL updated their tracking information to "Electronic Notification Received",I checked my credit card and the total at check out was 215.00. But the credit card was billed 260.00. I filled a charge back, I wrote them monday morning about the billing issues and nothing. At this point I am going say scam. So stay away./

    I had ordered from usahotstuff on March 8 and worried my order wouldn't arrive. I got a notification email the next day stating it had shipped. Of course there was no movement. DHL didn't even start showing tracking until the 11th. I started looking around and saw this post. I panicked and I sent them an email March 18th, strictly saying "It's been 7 days since it was marked as shipped, but you didn't send it yet. If I don't see any movement by tomorrow, I'm contacting my card issuer and declining the charge."

    I sent that email early in the morning. I started getting tracking movement later that day. I'm not sure if they had planned on shipping it anyway, or if the email got things going. But it just arrived today. I got the EZ Flash IV. It's a MicroSDHC version and seems to play fine in my SP.

    Here's the tracking link to show what my shipping went through.

    Sure. "It has been a week since your marked my item as shipped, yet nothing has moved or changed. If I don't see movement by tomorrow, I'm contacting my card issuer and declining the charge. You obviously lied that I'd get it in 5 days."

    I did wait a week from the ship date when I sent it. But that's what I wrote. Shipping time took a week when it finally started moving.

    I've just bought a DSTWO from this site. I was unsure whether to order or not due to the mixed reviews I've seen, but since the DSTWO seems to be so rare I decided to take a chance. I've had an order confirmation and payment receipt so I'll keep tracking the order and keep my fingers crossed!

    Got my shipment notification and tracking number this morning. The tracking site does not recognise the tracking number yet but hopefully it will start tracking soon.

    Well, after a couple of emails to USAHotStuff (and inconsistent replies...) my tracking number has just started tracking on the DHL web site. Fingers crossed it gets here ok and is actually what I ordered :/

    Just look at the URL name; it itself doesn't sound legitimate to me.
