Shipping Delay

Made a purchase. Got an email saying that it could be delayed by a month. Why can't I cancel the order? The item is in stock at my local Best Buy. Why do I need to wait a month? Even if it doesn't take a month, any longer than the standard 2 days in not acceptable. The purchase was for $300, so I was able to get 1 day shipping. Why would it even give me that option if the item isn't stocked?

Re: Shipping Delay



Welcome to our community. There is nothing quite so aggravating as having an order delayed. I know when it comes to my orders, I don't want to wait to get my stuff.  I regret that you're having to cope with such a situation.


In my experience the one-month shipping delay notice is a generic estimate used by our order management system when there’s a slight hiccup in processing on our end. In nearly every instance I’ve encountered this, shortly after receiving notice of the delay the system updates the order with a more accurate estimate, sometimes without any actual delay at all. Orders in the process of shipping cannot generally be cancelled.


You should receive a new notification when your order ships. If you haven't seen an update yet, please let me know and I'll be happy to look into it further for you. 


Thank you for taking the time to share your concerns with us.
