@3one5 I’ve pre-ordered tons of items, they have always been available or shipped simultaneously with other stores Unless they specifically made a comment about getting it sooner on their own site.
In all seriousness, I am not “that” upset, it’s really only a minor inconvenience.
But saying that this is how all pre-orders go and throwing a definition of preorder has no context with how the term is been used in the last 10-15 years. I find Wikipedia’s definition fairly accurate at least in my experience. I’ve only ran into something like this one or two times before, It’s definitely not the norm. Not getting a product first defeats the purpose of the pre-order. And this is my Whole point. If you don’t want to honor a pre-order, don’t allow it.
Again, I am not full of rage, and this isn’t meant to be ‘hostile’. But there were numerous comments from @ben about how what amazon said for shipping wasn’t correct and completely arbitrary, and that amazon would start shipping this week.
