Hmm that sucks. Thanks for the info though. If they're going to end up canceling some/most/all of these preorders, they could at least have the decency to NOT tell us they shipped and instead give us cancelation notices in a timely fashion. Time will tell I suppose...
My tracking finally checked in. Got a departure scan. I'm sure yours will too in time.
Here is a possible reason we are having shipping issues for this order: they used UPS SurePost.
I actually paid for premium shipping on the two Wii U pre-orders (10/31) and they shipped it using SurePost. This is essentially the cheapest and least reliable/speedy option available for Target to use for shipping. My pre-order ship date was delayed last minute because they used this shipping method and I had to notify the people I sold the pre orders to that their Wii U's would be delayed.
I hope the few bucks Target saved on shipping was worth losing me as a customer for life.
All the order detail says that 2 units shipped in 1 package... but Target CS gave some bs line about it being possible to still receive a second package by the 27th. So I have to wait until I haven't received the 2nd unit by the 27th before they'll do something about it. However they've already charged my credit card for two units, and they have no clue where the second unit is at....
I called Target and complained that they shipped via UPS SurePost (lowest/cheapest shipping method for them), even though I paid ~$8 each for "premium" shipping. The representative offered to send me a $5 GC for each order via mail or email. Worth a try if you chose this shipping method, or had other shipping issues.
