Out Call

I get this email this morning from Amazon.com:

Hello,
We're writing about the order you placed on July 21 2011 (Order# 105-7624741-5920204). Unfortunately, we are unable to ship the item(s) as soon as we expected and need to provide you with a new estimate of when the item(s) may be delivered:
 Nat Cassidy, et al "Battle: New York - Day 2"   Estimated arrival date: September 19 2011 - September 29 2011
We apologize for the inconvenience caused by this delay.*****WHY WAS MY ORDER DELAYED?While we do our best to adhere to our delivery estimates, our inventory is constantly changing based on information we receive directly from our suppliers. Occasionally, unexpected fluctuations in supply, delays during shipping, or changes in release dates for new products will add time to our original delivery estimate.


I'm calling shenanigans on you, Mr. Amazon! You didn't have enough copies because you sold out! Sold out I say!
You should order a bunch more copies to keep 'em on hand. Really. You should.

That's what you get for pre-ordering, sucka. I bought day of and my delivery estimate is still September 8, 2011 - September 12, 2011!

I keep hoping Interplanetary will sell out on Amazon at some point, but they always seem to keep at least one copy in stock.

Andrew Bellware said...

Well they're probably just ordering a few every week to just stay ahead of the curve.
