    I am not 100% sure, but on March 14th I ordered their SD Media Launcher for GameCube/Wii from their site: HERE

    And upon checkout, they said to expect delivery in 7 to 10 business days. It is now day 16, should I be worried? I check my mail daily, and it's only accessibly with my key, so I know nobody could have stolen my mail.

    Has anyone ordered stuff from them directly like this before? I haven't contacted them yet, I'm gonna give it a few more days... But I'm just curious if I've been swindled.

    I didn't know they still made those.

    I got mine years ago.

    If you paid via PayPal give them at least 30 days and if it doesn't turn up open a claim.

    I didn't use Paypal, I paid via MasterCard, and have the payment date on my card history, with the purchase date there and everything.

    Is it Day 16 or Business Day 16? 10 business days means two weeks (roughly) so day 16 isn't that far off. It's possible your package arrived this weekend and is awaiting delivery at your local post office. I'd wait until the end of the day today (Monday) and you haven't received it yet, email them.

    Yeah, I understand business days. That's why I'm giving them a few more days on good faith before I open a claim.

    Well, to address your concern in the OP, I doubt you've been swindled. Codejunkies isn't exactly a big name brand (since Action Replay has been nonexistent for years with the exception of PowerSaves), but it's not like they're "r4iFlashCards4U.ru" or some other small, possibly fake business.

    Give them 30 days. Are you able to email them or contact them? Tell them that it hasn't come yet and it's been quite a while.

    It finally arrived a few days ago, the mail was just terribly slow. Thread can be closed now. :)
