Yep, I just got the email too! It was for my Ultra PreOrder, no word on my GT PreOrder...

It's about time they moved the date UP instead of BACK for a change!!

So, 7/2 with ground shipping will probably mean about next Wed. I can deal with that! I can't WAIT for a tracking number!

I canceled the BestBuy order (that was tough to do)....After all the fees to return the GT it would put the total cost of the Ultra to over $600.....I can't justify that kind of cost for alittle better OCing....

And if I don't like..I still have an X800XT PE on pre-order from cdw.com due to ship next week :) Ok, now where the hell is UPS....

Well it better show up on sat since I ordered it with overnight shipping otherwise best buy needs to refund the extra money I spent for it.

Unfortunately when they say next day they mean next business day which most likely will be tuesday which gives us a good chance to get out of the house for the weekend and enjoy some fresh air.

Ok bad news guys.

First of all, everyones card is comming via UPS, and as you all know they dont offer Saturday Delivery. I called them asked if they could ship it FedEx and they said 'No'...

And basicly if it dose ship out tomorow, it will arrive the next day depending on what holidays ups takes.

Dose anyone know if the 5th is a UPS holiday?

UPS is union so you can bet they take off as many days as they possibly can get away with.

Thats bull****. Who the hell does not use fed ex. I'm thinking about canceling it because I don't trust UPS as far as I can throw them. I would pay an extra $30 if I had to in order to get it before next week. But looks like best buy continues to be MORONS. Gee lets all ship all these expensive componants via a crappy shipping service that breaks half the shipments.

Dude, you take your meds today???? If UPS was as bad as you claim, they'd be out of business. Fed Ex is also union to my knowledge and also probably wont be delivering on monday(7/5). Best Buy uses UPS because thats the company they got the BEST shipping deal out of for the least amount of money. Its common business practice. Now go back to the medicine cabinet and take those pills.

I'm not on any medication but personaly speaking I have had nothing but bad experiences with them. If you have not then more power to you but I don't trust them anymore. It's not just one thing it has been multiple things with them and Fedex will deliver when UPS will not in most situations. Fedex is simply the best and the only one that I trust. If it's something cheap then UPS is fine but anything expensive shipping with them mainly electronics and you are running a huge risk with them.
