Keep in mind USPS is closed tomorrow for George HW Bush’s Memorial. No dice if you’re expecting a SmartPost delivery tomorrow, like me. 😔

If anyone here went through SmartPost, how long is the package typically held until it actually gets sent for delivery? This is my first time seeing a SmartPost service for an item I bought, so I'm not sure if FedEx does the delivery, or USPS.

Mine got pushed from the 12th to the 10th to the 7th. Feels good. Gonna sell mine to a friend at cost, so it's nice it should get there by Christmas.

Based on reading SD and here that their PS4 and Xbox games being Mexican copies. Would make sense they also get Mexican copies for switch too. That and I think NA is in the same region hence why it’s rated by esrb and says USA on the chart.

Edit: And haven’t read the product descriptions but apparently on PS4/Xbox games they state they are Mexican copies but play in English. For some reason they haven’t added that disclaimer on switch games or even mention you could get a Euro copy.
I believe someone posted that the seller said Switch games were US copies.

My order got delayed a full week and just went in the opposite direction from my house today. What is even going on with this seller's shipping method? I've never seen anything like this in a FedEx order.

I think it’s just how they handle delivering to your local USPS.
My switch was literally a 25 minute drive away from me but they took it back to a sorting facility in NJ to bring it right back my way.
Shit is weird and inefficient lol

Ahh, I see other folks having their orders switched from FedEx to USPS, as well. How odd. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR, I guess.

Damn say my switch was delivered by USPS

Its too big for my mailbox so where did they fucking put it

Does USPS just drop it off at the front door or require signature?

Delivery date moved from 10/11 to 10/8, maybe I’ll get lucky and it’ll get here the 7th. Either way I’ll get to play Smash this weekend. \o/

So my Eevee came in perfectly fine, but a buddy of mine who ordered his Switch during one of the first Monday waves has still received nothing. In fact, his shipping label has only been created but it hasn't left Miami. He sent multiple e-mails with zero replies received. Is there still hope? He was hoping to play Smash this weekend. :/

My shipping update still says it hasn't left Miami as well but I recieved it yesterday. I also ordered a pro controller. I got it yesterday but today recieved a second one for some reason. There's no rhyme or reason here so he might be in luck or maybe not.

My FexEx tracking updated: my Switch is in transit and is currently in Pennsylvania! It should arrive next week on Wednesday. I still haven't been charged yet on my card, but things are looking good.

Hmm okay, I'll tell him to keep an eye out regardless. Thank you!

well that was unexpected, they actually delivered my switch today lol, guess smart post was important enough to deliver today. Still have no idea where the pro controller is

mine went from a fedex Smart Post facility yesterday to a USPS one to my local post office and it was delivered by USPS
That's what I'm expecting as well, but the tracking has yet to show the handoff complete on the USPS side since Saturday. The tracking seems to lag quite a bit. I don't want to wait for the USPS tracking to update, but actually miss the delivery.

Did the USPS site say Out for Delivery this morning for you? My FedEx tracking says in transit to USPS, but USPS says Pre-Shipment.
Couple of interesting developments. Got my second one delivered today, was an order for a grey, a neon was delivered instead. It said it would be delivered tomorrow when I looked at it 2 hours before it was delivered. I ordered it within 20 minutes(can't remember if before or after) of my third which won't be here until tomorrow. Curious if that will be grey or neon.

I missed out on placing a neon order, so quite happy about this.

Did the neon that got delivered say Out for Delivery on the USPS tacking, or simply Awaiting Package/Pre-Shipment?

Like I said, maybe 2 hours before it got delivered, it said expected delivery 6th. Like 5 am today it just said pre-shipment, so it could have been updated to out for delivery some time in those 2 hours

Hm, as someone whose neon has been at the FedEx facility since Friday with no updates I hope that the shipments were all correct. Would be very disappointed to find out my neon was delivered elsewhere. Of course, you may have just gotten lucky and no one else was affected, which I hope is the case.

Hmm you may be right. Just saw on Amazon at least the esrb logo is the same lol. Don’t have my other switch cases on me to compare. But it’s sounding like a crapshoot if you get the UK or US version.

After 5 days of silence from FedEx my orders have made it to a facility in my state. Funny thing is, both are said to have arrived at the FedEx station less than 5 minutes apart. One will be delivered tomorrow, the other won’t get to me until next Tuesday. FedEx is a mystery to me. Hopefully it all goes smoothly.

Haven't really looked in this thread since mine shipped but I got my gray joycon switch today! Opened it up, updated it and charged it fully so it's ready to go on Christmas :)
