We had a pre-ordered item ship to our APO AE address on the 27th of Oct and a according to the tracking info the last entry is the 30th and we still have not received the item. Does anyone know why it takes so long to get items to APO's from Best Buy or even Circuit City? Don't get me wrong, we in the military are greatful that they will now ship items to us overseas but having to wait up to 6 or 7 weeks (sometimes longer) to get them is kind of crazy. We have order items from other on-line stores and have received them in a week to 10 days. I'm just curious. Thanks.

We have never had any problems receiving packages that are sent USPS either but this package started out from UPS and then USPS took over from there. From the tracking info we recieved UPS had it from 27-29 Oct then it was transferred to USPS on the 30th and that is the last entry on the tracking info. I just don't understand why packages from these companies take so long. My neighbor had a computer from the other big electronics company take 8 weeks to get here. Here's another example; while I was at the post office on base, a guy just recieved the exact thing I have been waiting for. His came from the store with a bull's eye as a symbol and only took 2 weeks and it came USPS. So I'm just wondering why it takes so long from here.

My understanding, while stationed in Germany, Japan, and Korea was that anything shipped overseas would have no guaranteed delivery dates because once they leave the continental US, they are no longer in the control of the USPS, but the APO/FPO and therefore cannot be tracked or guaranteed.
If BB does have only a few warehouses that can ship overseas, then the problem is simply exacerbated by that situation.
