Future Shop / Best Buy shipping status thread 2012

I thought I'd make the annual shipping status thread for Boxing Day purchases from Future Shop and Best Buy, so others can post what their shipping status is to compare and get an idea of when items might ship.

I placed my Best Buy order for two PC games around midnight on Christmas, and unfortunately it still says my order is "In Progress," yet I don't have the option to cancel it.

I spent about an hour on the FS and BB sites on Christmas Eve and managed to snag the $999 MacBook Air. It arrived this afternoon! I figure I got what I wanted at a pretty good price and didn't have to deal with BD in stores so all in all not too bad. And really, can't beat the shipping speed.

Both my FS and BB orders from the 24th arrived today...surprisingly fast.

Waiting for my Amazon.ca order which should hopefully arrive tomorrow according to tracking.

- placed Best Buy order Dec 24th
- received email Dec 25th saying unable to process order due to credit card not being accepted (BB website's repeated attempts to charge card put a hold on it)
- provided new credit card info
- received shipping notification email Dec 27th, with expected delivery date of Jan 2 (although knowing Canada Post's tracking info it will probably arrive a day early)

Ordered some BDs from FS evening of 24th, Received them today. When everyone is getting their stuff on the first possible day you know they must not have been busy with this year's sale.

Good to hear the majority of people are getting their orders promptly!
As for everyone else, I know your pain... Still waiting on any email to say my order has been processed, wishing I could just cancel it and go to a store instead. Frustrating.

Bought 3DS XL on 24th and it hasn't shipped yet. I actually dropped by the BB store in Richmond Hill and they had so many 3DS XLs in stock. I might as well have bought it there.

I just got my FS shipping notice at 3:00am. Looked at the tracking info and it said item was sent to Canada Post on the 26th. It is out on delivery and I should get it today. So in my case they shipped it first and waited a couple days to send the email? Still waiting for BB

Ordered at about 9PM EST on the 24th. Received shipping confirmation yesterday at about 4. Weird thing is the Canada Post tracking.. It says :

2012/12/28 20:25 MISSISSAUGA Order information received by Canada Post

This is in the future from when I received the hsipping notice? ETA is for the 31st but I'm hoping I get it today. (Located in Windsor)
