I love that she didn't even remember that I was a bloke!

Quote:
Dear Sir/Madam,

As per our telephone call earlier this morning, we have received a response regarding your pre-ordered title and I am afraid at the present time we are unsure when we will get the title from our suppliers. We can cancel your order, if you’d like?

I am very sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you.

Kind regards,

Charlotte

Customer Advisor

The Book Depository Ltd


Note that without provocation she offered to cancel twice on the phone, and once again in the email. I thought the price was too good to be true because this does not look good...

devil Oh, I've got time, I can wait. But you are right, I wouldn't be surprised if they couldn't deliver. Right now I'll let my pre-order with them stand. If they can't deliver in 6 weeks I will raise a stink.

Your title is a little bit confusing. At first, I didn't think it would be possible to use a book sized pill to . . . blush

Just out of curiosity, what was the price that sounded "too good to be true"?

Is there something I should know? Has this happened before? If so it might be time to contact the British Version of "Better Business Buero" if they don't honor their sales contracts.

My FLGS says he is not getting a delivery until this Thursday at the earliest.

Does make me worried about Dungeons & Dragons: Wrath of Ashardalon Board Game which I just pre-ordered this morning.

And if that doesn't work we'll contact the SAS.

Yeah, I've been holding off on my preorder for WoA to see how it goes with Castle Ravenloft first. I suppose technically speaking the release date is only today, but I can't help being antsy having devoured every bit of info on this game for the last year or so...

That's 40 Euros or 51 USD. Really a good price if you actually get the product ...

Well if it does get sent, we're in the same boat. But you'll have yours long before me. And mine'll probably get stuck in customs and well, and I'll be forced to fork up some extra dough, meanwhile you would be on your 21st game... (feel better yet?)

I did pre-order over a month ago...after having been bombarded with extra info(pics, session reports, etc.) since GenCon, I CAN'T WAIT ANY MORE!!
Hopefully, they'll deliver. If that's not the case, they'll get a 'nice' formal complaint from me (and my Keyboard of Acrimony +2), and of course, they better forget about further (pre) orders from me. sauron

In Spain we've bought it by 33,74 euros (not pounds). 43$.
And we DO EXPECT to get the product... angry

Well, I got it for 48 Euros at my FLGS last Friday, so I'm following this thread in a relatively relaxed mood.

I've had that email and several similar!

I finally cracked and cancelled my Book Depository pre-order last night. It was bad enough that they didn't know anything about the change of release date but they still didn't have any idea when they could fill the order after the official release devil

A shop in Glasgow had told me they'd have it in to day. Dropped in before heading home only to be told that the delivery hadn't arrived. soblue

I rushed back to Edinburgh having checked on the way that my FLGS actually had it.

Got stuck in traffic arrived 4 minutes late ....shop shutsoblue

I'm beginning to think I'm never going to get my hands on this and the delay is beginning to build an unreasonable and irrational expectation that it will be worth the wait!
