    Takes 3 to 5 business days for me. Usually get the package in 2 weeks from shipping the POL. Don't really care about the speed since I'm cheap.

    I'm of the opinion its not what shipping method you use that determines how long it takes for your order to be processed, but when you ship it. If a bunch of people hit ship when a hot item comes, it will take more time. I hit ship on a Friday with the expectation that it will ship by Tuesday and be at my front door by the following Friday (a Friday that I'm usually off).

    I placed a stock order last weekend that "shipped" on Wednesday, but the tracking hasn't moved yet.$4 shipping or not I would think they'd have the foresight to arrange extra FedEx pickups during a busy week.

    So you just have a label created, and info sent to Fed-Ex or is it at a Fed-Ex facility?

    To be fair, that could be FedEx's doing, actually. BBTS can place the order as ready, but it's up to FedEx to actually come and pick it up. Problem is, the weather has been terrible this season and the holiday window is much shorter this year, so they're backed up left and right. I've got two packages that were supposed to be delivered yesterday, but they're just now updating as having been to the hub that's just before my residence...well after delivery stopped. So, now one is saying Tuesday, the other says pending, and I don't actually know when they'll come. So, yeah. That's fun.

    When even Amazon is backed up and missing their delivery windows, you know something's off.

    Of the many reasons why I'm glad I don't have to ship anything from Big Bad till January. I always cringe at anything going through the postal system or private in December.

    The good thing next year FedEx is going to have slot of empty trucks vs this year since FedEx decided to not renew their shipping contract with amazon this year.

    Hoping MMC Tyrantron reissue comes in stock this week / Dec 10 like MMC told me directly on messenger on Facebook. :) 

    Need to ship my POL before Dec 25 at the latest to maximize my $4 shipping and there isn't any left for me to cancel and re-order to extend the POL date since stuff in my POL is not on sale anymore and/or sold out. :p 

    Weird. Must not have been profitable bending over backwards for Amazon. :p

    That's the funny part. They didn't cancel over a profitability factor. FedEx cancelled because they won't haul packages for a competitor. Their bent at amazon since amazon started their own delivery service.

    Update: after 5 days FedEx picked up my shipment.

    It will be a solid 2 weeks from order date to delivery date. I ordered stuff on Amazon Friday night and had that in hand by Sunday early afternoon. I get slow shipments from China and Japan in 2 weeks.

    I really feel like they need to up their logistics game.

    If anybody was like me and relied on BBTS as their last hope for Lancer, my pre-order finally processed.

    Their flat shipping is notoriously slow. Use the cheapest non-flat option to get items in a few business days from ordering.

    Sold out. Don't think they got more, somebody probably cancelled their pre-order or something. :p
