I was just about to order one, but it seems that people are complaining because it's status was at "waiting for shipment" for about a week. Did any one get theirs?

I've had trouble with deal extreme lately, i put an order in at the beggining of the month and had to cancel a few days a go, as it was obvious that, with it's status stuck on proccesing, it wasn't going to arrive for christmas. Now even after numerous e-mails i cannot get a response regarding my refund.

I cannot believe i'm having to contemplate launching a PayPal complaint on them now, they have been so reliable for so long.

Anyone know how long I have, from purchase, before I must put a complaint in with PayPal ?

Dealextreme hasn't always been reliable for me with ship times, but they've always come through. I think the dispute deadline is 45 days. You're probably SOL if it was a christmas gift though.

Minionlinestore.com has bundles like deal extreme.
They have FAST and FREE shipping worldwide and have DSTT in stock.
I have ordered 5 items from them and Irecieved them all within 3-5 days. Much faster than the 21 days I waited for my R4 from DX. You might be able to get it by christmas, but I really doubt it.

Just trying to help.

I ordered one the day it went on sale. I'm sure that they had a limited stock of them and too many orders. I will just wait patiently for the supplier to deliver more. In the meantime I have my R4 so it's not that big a deal to keep waiting. I have purchased three different times with them and have always been satisfied with the company.

Holy Cow! Just visited minionline store. Exchanging the rate over to USD makes it twice as much as ordering from dealextreme. If anyone has ordered from DE i would recomend just waiting, it's worth the savings!

i ordered the one without the Rumble pack just a few days ago, and the status has changed to Expedited Order Received - in stock.

i read in the forums that the one with the rumble pack had problems cause they received shipments of random colours for the rumble pack so they say thats why there was a delay.

For all you guys that wants a DSTT, try ebuyrealm.com, $36 with free shipping, they ship from California too not China with USPS First Class, I recently just ordered one.

I recently ordered one from DealExtreme and they ran out of stock apparently.

I have to wait until they get their next batch in now. I'm just gonna wait it out since they have amazingly good deals going on at their site and I haven't found a single site to compares to it.

Huzzah! The status is now 'Order Received - in stock'! Don't know at what stage I'm at now, but it'll probably be a week until I get it now!

Does anyone know if they ever plan to carry the bundle with the GBA/Explorer pack? All my searchs on toptoy just turn up the DSTT alone, w/rumble, or one of those two with some uSD card...

    I luckily haven't had a boss in over 20 years, (independent contractor) but the people I do work for, it's pretty much like they my bosses, and yea some can be assholes. But there has been many jobs I've walked off and mailed they're checks back to them.

    At my last job I (as an individual contributor, not a manager or supervisor or anything) used to be the one to tell my manager when I was traveling for work "hey I'm gonna be out of office between x and y dates, I got something on the other side of the country I'm gonna go work on"
