    Hello,
    Please look at this auction: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=7573716426&rd=1&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWN%3AIT&rd=1


    Now, I paid for it on Saturday, December 17. It says shipping is 1 to 6 business days. I think that I am correct in saying that today is the sixth business day. *But it also says "Note that transit times may vary, particularly during peak periods" and I guess that means Christmas.*

    I havn't reieved it yet, so, what should I do? Wait another day or report to eBay?


    Thanks for you advice.:thumbup:

    He looks like an ok seller, judging by his feedback percentage. If you're worried fire off a friendly e-mail. They won't bite your head off or anything, just let you know how things are going. Most eBay seelers especially the ones who sell a lot, are friendly. :)

    Oh, I e-mailed the guy like 3 times, once over e-mail and twice on the eBay messenger thing. No replies.

    Agreed. Christmas is a really tight time for shipping... my mom owns an online business selling cookie jars, so we run into this every year. Give it at least one more day, maybe two or three.

    I finally got an e-mail from the guy. He gave me the UPS tracking number.
    Here's what I saw:

    This is horrible service. It seems the seller somehow misprinted my address or something. The thing I don't understand is why it ever went to Lexington after arriving in Louisville where I live.

    Such a disappointment. Oh well, it says I should get it tomorrow... but I somehow doubt it.

    Well, at least everything is back on track and you're likely to get it soon, stay patient. :D

    What she said. It isn't as if you are starting classes as of right now (presumably) and what will an extra couple of days do. :)

    Everyone makes mistakes in life. It should be there by tomorrow. I'd just chill and file this experience under the "$h*t happens tab. :lol:

    Alright. It says it should come today.

    But, who should I blame? The seller or UPS? I mean, I'm not going to give the seller positive feedback, maybe a neutral or a negative. Isn't his fault that it took this long. Since it says the UPS couldn't read the address.

    Depends on if it's the reader or the writer that messed up the address. You'll know more when you get the package. I wouldn't give someone negative feedback over poor pensmanship though. I'd base feedback on the quality of the product since the item is still basically on time
