    Depends on the shipping method you used. For Airmail 2 weeks is average.

    [​IMG] From ShopTemp FAQ:

    Hong-Kong Registered Airmail

    The Hong-Kong Registered Airmail method is similar to the method above: your order is shipped normally. Again delays vary from 2 to 5 weeks depending on your country of residence.

    This method ensures that your parcel is registered and a tracking number is given to you to let you track the parcel during the shipping process. The tracking number is sent to you by email automatically, and you may also find it at any time from the order status page.

    Please note that tracking registered airmail is not anywhere near as accurate as courier serivces own tracking systems, such as DHL and UPS. Tracking details will often not appear for several days after shipping so please be patient. We recommend you use DHL or UPS if you want to keep track of your parcel easier.

    Just like $1 shipping, all your original product packaging is included.

    Rates start at $2.50 regardless of the order size and weight, and the higher the value of your order, the lesser the rate. If your order total is $50 or over, this method becomes completely free.

    You paid 2 dollars to get a tracking number but have the same rate as free air mail. That's basically it.

    Well I recently tracked the package and it says "Outward registered letter: The item left for its destination on 11-Oct.-2010"

    So given the fact that it was shipped today can anyone estimate how much longer?

    2 weeks at the minimum like everyone else has been saying? >_>

    I've ordered stuff from DealExtreme that's taken like a month to ship and then some things took 2 weeks.


    you're ordering stuff from hong kong
    it's gonna take forever


    meanwhile, enjoy your last few days of not being a pirate, maybe go out and buy a game to celebrate, idk

    Lol not for me mine came on 10/16/10 which was last saturday! It was shipped on 10/11/10! Which was not two weeks. But I also have even better luck due to the fact that as soon as I got my Supercard in the mail and I opened it, I droped it into a glass of juice by accident. [​IMG] So I waited over night for it to dry after wiping it clean of the juice. I tried it the next day and it works to my amzement!
