GCU charging for release date now?

Went to go preorder Final Fantasy XII and saw that release date shipping has a $7.98 charge but Wednesday (the day after release) is free. Did something change recently in the terms that affects shipping costs? In the last few years I have had the service I have never had to pay for release-date shipping.

Re: GCU charging for release date now?

Hi MichaelG –


Thanks for your interest in pre-ordering from us and for your post. Your disappointment in needing to pay for shipping to ensure release day delivery is definitely understandable, so I’ll be happy to clarify this for you.


The reason for the shipping charge to get Final Fantasy XII on release day is because of how near to release we are. At this point to ensure your pre-order arrives on release day 2-day shipping is required, which does include a shipping fee. Pre-orders placed earlier did not incur a shipping charge for release day delivery, as we could ensure their release day delivery within the free standard shipping period. If you have any other questions please feel free to post again.
