    Usually within two to three days from your order (did you order over the weekend?) you'll recieve an email telling you your order was shipped with a link to your account page. Go to your account page and click on the order number and than click on where it says track and it'll take you to a UPS page with all your tracking info.

    Calculated roughly ("it's been, like, two days"), it sounds like you put in your order on Wednesday or Thursday. Depending how late you put in your order (any time after ~noon, in my experience), there's no way they'd be doing anything with it until the next day, so that takes us to Thursday or Friday and getting close to the Labor Day weekend. I wouldn't be surprised if they weren't processing things as fast because of the long weekend coming up.

    Do this anyway, even before you get a "shipped" e-mail, if you want to check on the status of the order. It'll either be...
    "Processing" - Still processing your payment.
    "Paid" - Payment processed, but order not sent to the warehouse yet.
    "Warehouse" - Order being assembled, packed, etc.
    "Shipped" - Self-explanatory.

    Yeah, that's a good point too. I usually don't because most of the stuff I get from them is preorders so I never know if it's come in until I actually get their email. :lol

    BBTS are great! And actually, your order doesn't go out immediately. When you've finished and paid your order, it goes to the warehouse first, which takes a couple of days before being completed. After that your box is shipped.

    This timeframe definitely varies a lot. I've sometimes had stuff go Paid -> Warehouse -> Shipped in a matter of hours if I order something early enough in the day, yet other times it can take 2 - 3 days for something to clear Warehouse. Doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to it.

    Well, one thing I've noticed is that they're buisier at certain times of the year and not at others, but I know what you're saying. I've had stuff that's gone through the process within a matter of two hours and than there was the one time that I didn't get notice of the item being shipped for four days. That's the longest I've ever had to wait though and it was a REALLY big order (think it had a crap load of preorders from a particular month in my Pile of Loot).

    In my experience, those dates are never right; I've yet to see anything I've pre-ordered actually arrive the month it's supposed to (this doesn't seem to be just a BBTS thing, as I'm having the same experience with HLJ, currently). I always assume the stuff I pre-order will come in the month after when it's listed.

    Seeing your location, I'd wait. My guess is, you have it shipped on Tuesday (anything now would prolly ship Tuesday or later) and then all the other stuff shows up on Wednesday... It always works that way.

    Coming from someone that has it...
    It may be pretty and impressive the first day, but the half-assed 'paint' (comes right off) and other flaws set in later.

    Then again, I'm stuck with the one with the fingerprint in the rear window and the large scratch above that.

    It's a good deluxe, but it's worth waiting for.

    It isn't the quality of the apps, it's the quality of the PAINT. It just comes right off.
