How many other's have had their box sets ship?

I have one question when I put the tracking number in at the UPS site it says unable to find order. Is this normal should I be worried?

Take care everybody!

mine still says "processing" :( :( :( I hope it ships tomorrow

that tracking thing is nothing to worry about...check again tomorrow, it normally takes them about a day to update their tracking info on the site. The reason is says it can't be found is because the UPS website doesn't know the order exists because they haven't put in that it shipped yet. Just check again tomorrow...that happens to me all the time :)

I have another item that shipped separately, which shipped within a day of ordering-it tells you that it takes 24-48 hours(or something around there) for the company it ships through to put the information in there system. Your information should be available, I think, sometime tomorrow.

Mine and Lynette's box sets have the status of shipped too, but when I clicked on the UPS link it said it could not find it.

I'd check mine just maybe 4 hours ago and it still said "processing"......... now it says "shipped".

I've used the UPS tracking system quite a bit and here is my experience and explanation.

UPS isn't tracking it yet because they've probably just been labeled and are being taken to the UPS shipping facility. That's how it usually goes. Some time tomorrow when UPS actually scans it into their system (different than Walmarts) some time during the wee hours of the morning... then it'll show what shipping facility it was taken to and then you'll be able to track it as it gets closer and closer to your home. The tracking updates are only done periodically though so it runs a bit behind where your package really is.

*LOL*...... my UPS guy is probably going to be grumpy. He had to make 3 trips to my house just today because whomever loaded his truck didn't sort the boxes right and put them together. I had a box of a bunch of teaching materials from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute..... a package from Walmart of a movie that I ordered at the same time I ordered the box set... and another order I had of a prescription.

We live wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy out in the boonies down a long country road so it was rather inconvient for him.

Mine was shipped but since Hurricane Katrina delivery dates don't amount to much. I ordered a birthday present for my grandson three weeks ago and it shipped the next day. It says it is in Metairie but UPS has not delivered it yet. I am calling today to see if I can pick it up. I may have to do that with the box sets I ordered.

Mine have shipped :) :) :) as of this morning. However, like everyone else there is no tracking info yet.... and to be honest if I were just guessing I've noticed in the past that UPs doesn't seem to update any tracking info over the weekend! :( So, we may have to wait until Monday to find out where our packages are or maybe they'll just end up at our doors!!! :) :) :) I hope so...

Until UPS picks up these packages at the location and actually scans it in thier system as being in route you will not find anything on the tracking system. I would try back this afteroon or tonight after they make the pickup for today.

Monica Lockhart

I'm confused why everyone assumes these are being shipped UPS.

My tracking information says it was shipped priority mail via USPS.

I ordered another box set yesterday.. and the ordering information clearly says that items can be shipped through many different methods. Are we assuming that these box sets were shipping UPS because of the commercial that Garth did?

I believe some may come UPS.. but mine isn't. If your box set has shipped it will tell you the method of shipping. USPS is the post office... not the big brown truck.

My order now shows as being shipped instead of processing and the UPS tracking is coming up.

MoniI ordered two things from Walmart on the same day. 1 was the box set which of course they held on to until the official ship date. The other was a DVD of a movie I'm using in class. It shipped right away.

The Garth box set is coming by UPS. I didn't choose that... it did it all on it's own.

The movie got here yesterday and it came by USPS (regular mail).


I THINK that what Walmart did was figure out how things needed to be shipped in order for them to get to certain places all about the same time. Some that were probably close by the warehouse or are on direct shipping routes probably got sent by USPS. Those further away or off regular routes got sent UPS to cut some of the time off.

Snow
11-18-2005, 04:33 PM
Ok..... I just checked mine. Walmarts page says "in transit"... which can mean almost anything... most likely it means "in transit" to UPS's shipping facility.... not really to me directly yet.


If I go to the UPS website and check the progress of the package, it says that it is going to be shipped to my location......... but right now it's showing that the only thing that has OFFICIALLY happened with my package is that UPS has received the electronic billing info from Walmart:
UPS has received shipper's billing information electronically. Billing information received does not indicate shipment pickup or drop-off. Please contact the shipper for more details.

So Walmart has put address labels on the package; scanned it; and sent the information as to there being a package and what number it is to the UPS people..... that is ALL that has happened yet. As far as UPS shows the package has not yet even arrived at their shipping facility.

So my bet is that it is on a Walmart truck and is waiting with a bunch of other packages for them to be driven over to UPS...... then UPS will scan them in and start them on their way.



Sooooooooooooooo.......... for the moment those of us with UPS shipping...... we can imagine our packages all sitting together in a truck somewhere just having a party! *lol*

they are being shipped from whatever UPS warehouse is closest to where you live I assume.

Mine says "in transit" at walmart.com but UPS says they have received billing information. My guess is that they will be shipped on Saturday(UPS runs on Saturday, correct?) and they will probably be delivered Monday or Tuesday depending on how far you are from a warehouse. I can't see why it would take untill Wednesday...plus Wlamart just said they would be delivered BY wednesday ;)

Hi! Although I've been viewing for a VERY long time, this is my first post!

My box set also shipped today. I had ordered the 7 covers of Double Live through WalMart when they came out a few years ago. I received them one day earlier than they were released in the stores.

It really depends I think how WalMart handles it...when we ordered the new Harry Potter Book (prior to release), it was shipped UPS, but the label outside said DO NOT DELIVER PRIOR TO JULY 16th. Let's hope WalMart doesn't use the same tactic!

Happy Thanksgiving to ALL!!!!

Well, I'd hate to get the stuff after July 16th! (that means we'd be waiting over 6 months to get hte set!)

(hey, had to be a smart aleck!)
I hope you're right htough, that WalMart doesn't do that rE: next week.. They may, but I hope they dont'...

Yours might be coming USPS Dale..... you'll have to check on the website.

But if it is coming UPS... then no, UPS doesn't deliver to PO Boxes because the USPS can't sign for your box.

But maybe yours is coming USPS and you wont have a problem then as address

Mine is still saying that it is shipped... but "in transit" with UPS so far only having been sent the electronic billing info... which means the package hasn't yet been scanned into the UPS shipping facility.

So it's probably still at Walmart. I bet that they have prepared them all for shipping (labels, scanned for UPS, etc.)... but Walmart is holding them to ship so that they arrive Tues. or Wed.

Usually if it was saying "billing received" by UPS on a Thursday.... by Friday morning it would have been updated to show it was scanned at the UPS facility and by today Saturday it should probably already be moving. So I think they are being held on purpose. I bet they wont actually give them over to UPS physically until late Saturday or early Monday.

Oh they've updated it several times a day...... it's just that the information hasn't changed. That's why I say they are holding it. They'll probably let them all go on Monday.

J,

I read about you getting 10 box sets and Paula getting extra's too, so that anyone who was in the "people abroad who can't get one" thread would get one, but... when I wanted to post in that thread, it was already closed, so I sent you an e-mail while you were in NY for the CMA's. So I'm just wondering if there's any chance that you counted me in for two box sets to be sent to Belgium. If not... any chance you could get them asap for me anyway? Many thanks in advance!

PS. I tried to contact you via PM too, but apparently your "box" is full and you can't receive any further PM's until you've read a couple of them. Or that's what the message I get says anyways!

Mr_Sevens

this means that it could arrive earlier and that wednesday is the latest it should arrive, right? I hope it comes early

Well I can't even wait for the first person that actually has confirmation that the box sets are really on the road, instead of just this billing info crap. I find myself going online to have a quick check of my tracking and of PG so many times a day it isn't even funny... I know the box sets are less than 72 hours away, but that just seems like an eternity! I feel like the kid who can't sleep because he knows santa is coming.... only my santa is dressed in brown shorts(I have to say he isn't bad looking either, just wish he'd lose the brown shorts)!! :D :D Oh well, I can wait.... no, I really can wait....

Just THREE more days, ya'll! How incredible is that?!! Just when you thought you wouldn't have a new Garth CD at your doorstep again, we're getting one THIS WEEK!! :) Having to work the next few days is going to kill me. Just b/c I have a 45-minute drive home from work, and wondering whether it may or may not be at my doorstep will probably cause me to get into a traffic accident! Thankfully my sister should be at my place a good chunk of the day on Wednesday, and can let me know if it's been delivered!

I'm still hoping for getting it early...as much as I want it tomorrow...I don't think I'll get it tomorrow, probably on Tuesday.

I think the only way I could get it tomorrow is if it has arrived at my local UPS place and is just waiting to be taken to my house. I sure hope that is the case...I want this so bad! :p

Ok so I have waited for my tracking info to update, even if I have been a little impatient.... but it is now mid-day Monday and I go online to check with big hopes... but yet there is still nothing!!! I don't know what is going on with this thing, but they're going to drive me a little crazy I think. I know I've had trouble with UPS in the past, including them purposefully making sure p[ackages don't arrive before the estimated arrival to help promote the more expensive shipping. In fact my mother was told by them one time that it would take two days to get a package to a large city not but 100 miles away from here! Which that is just stupid.... I've also watched packages sit in one spot for 24 to 48 not moving, or even arrive to my local facility for a night and them purposefully wait to deliver it not the next day but the one after that to make sure it doesn't arrive before the estimated arrival date. The tend to get things where they say they will be by when they say they will be okay, it is just how long that estimated time is that is unreasonable(the post office is often faster!)... and also their hidden policies bother me(why not deliver something ealry if you are ahead of schedule, and I'm not talking about any time sensitive releases)! But anyway, as much as I detest UPs, we are stuck at their mercy.........

I just called customer service because I wanted to know what was up with not being able to track my shipment. They said that it got picked up on the 18th and that UPS must not have shipped it yet and that it may not be on the way. Today is the 21st and it is shipping from Amarillo, TX. I think either Walmart or UPS goofed by not tracking it by now. This is driving me nuts!!!! I sure wish it was on my doorstep tonight!

Hey Everybody, Im am anxiously awaiting the arrival of my new box set as well. I also out of curiousity contacted UPS customer service and the lady first told me that they had just recieved the billing information which meant that it had not been received by them yet. Then she put me on hold and came back on the line and said she is showing a delivery date being today. So either it hasnt been skanned along with every one else's or no one knows what they are talking about. But she told me to call back tomorrow if I hadnt received it by the end of the day today. Just wanted to let ya'll know. No one is for sure about where these things are it seems

I'm thinking that those who live closer to Arkansas where the box sets probably shipped from, will probably receive their sets before some of us who live farter away probably will.

Snow
11-21-2005, 03:20 PM
I told ya'll........ I'd be willing to bet that Walmart has them all labeled; scanned for UPS; and ready to go on the trucks but is just holding them so they all go out at a time where everyone will get them about the same time and not any earlier.

Odds are that we'll see the status of them updated with something other than "billing received" later today or tonight. By in the morning they'll be well on their way to your homes and arrive on Wednesday.

Right now just imagine all our little boxes sitting together in some semi or storage container ready to go and having a little party together. ;)

Snow
11-21-2005, 03:57 PM
Yep.... it's always possible a small number might slip under the UPS radar early.

I'm sure once they are really delivered and ready to go from the UPS shipping facility that they'll go out to the individual shipping centers around the country to be taken to peoples homes. Some just because of being on faster routes may get to their local areas faster. Walmart may have restricted them to not be delivered before a certain date but it's always possible a few could pass through un-noticed.

I'm sure we'll hear as soon as someone on the board receives their copy! I know I'm hoping someone gets theirs earlier than the rest of us (if the rest of us are getting it Wednesday), just so we can get a concrete look at what there is. :D

EveryNow&Then
11-21-2005, 04:51 PM
well someone may get it today, but at this point I'm not holding out much hope... but who knows. Probably a couple people may get it tomarrow and the rest will get it wednesday...

Late last week it looked like they were coming a bit early, but no such luck... I do expect some of us will have some sort of tracking tonight though, because otherwise I highly doubt slow UPS could get the boxsets to all areas of the country in one day for $4 shipping.

Though I will say someone said their box set was coming from Amarillo, and it isn't that far from me, but I still bet it is going to be wednesday...

No use getting upset with UPS or Walmart at this point since nothing is late as of yet.

Isn't it funny how we've gotten so used to instant tracking and such. Wasn't long ago you had to order by mail or phone and were lucky to have an idea of which week it might arrive.

UPS can't tell you more than what is already on the website as they dont have physical control of the packages as of the last update. All they've gotten is the tracking number and basic info about the packages that Walmart's shipping warehouses have sent them.

The Walmart customer service people cant tell you much more than what is in the computer yet either. Customer service is usually no where near the shipping facility... sometimes they are even in different states or countries.

All they can be sure of is that their shipping department has pulled a box set for you... labeled it, put on UPS shipping labels and scanned the barcode... and sent the info to UPS.

After they do all that they arrange the boxes according to shipping zones on pallets. This makes it easier on UPS or USPS when masses of freight arrive and they are able to more easily get things out right away. The company sending freight usually get a discount in shipping for pre-arranging their packages this way.

And if you live way off normal shipping routes and routinely get things a little late... then it may be the same with this package as well. These pallets of boxes are going to be delivered to the shipper at the time estimated that it will take to get the packages to the individual by Nov. 23rd.

So while some that are right on the main routes might get it a day early.... those way off routes could still get them a little late.

For me I'll just be happy if I get it by some time Friday as that will still have saved me from going into stores on Black Friday... ugh... glad I dont have to do that!!!

I can see your point about not getting mad at the customer service people. I have been more than polite and I only called them one time. Its not that Im expecting my box set today...but I do expect it by the time I leave work on wed. since Walmart said if you preorder then it will be there BY the 23rd. They should still be able to tell us more then they are able at this point about where our packages are. I mean they have the technology available so why not use it? My only point is they should be able to tell us where our packages are. How hard is that?

Just be glad it doesn't say:


Unable to track shipment "xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx".

UPS could not locate the shipment details for your request. Please verify your information and try again later.

Remember, UPS Tracking Numbers appear in the following formats:
1Z 999 999 99 9999 999 9
9999 9999 999 9
T999 9999 999


like mine!!! :o :p And nope, I'm not typing in the numbers, just clicking the link. What the frick is right. :D

Snow
11-21-2005, 05:59 PM
Yeah they have the technology...... and they ARE using it. The customer service people though are seeing on their computers the same things you are.

They know where it is.... it's been scanned but not yet given to UPS... so it's in the warehouse or on a truck, organized by shipping zones & zipcodes... and going to UPS.

Once UPS physically has them it shouldn't take long because the boxes are already palletized by shipping zones. They can then just shove whole pallets onto trains, planes, or trucks and pretty much have them reach the regional shipping nodes overnight. In order to get to your home they only have to be at your regional UPS facility by Wednesday morning so they can be loaded into the route drivers trucks.

EveryNow&Then
11-21-2005, 06:00 PM
I'm as I said earlier still waiting for someone to see the the package is acutally in route to somewhere.... in all logic there is going to have to be that for someone tonight... otherwise there is little way that many peoples packages won't be late. I don't mind the not being early so much anymore, but if they promised it for wednesday it only right for 90-95% of people to get them by then...

11-21-2005, 06:11 PM
For the last few days, when I go to my tracking site on UPS it says that it is "In transit".

TexasCowboy
11-21-2005, 06:11 PM
Im sure everyone will get them on wednesday. And like I said before...I dont expect it to come early. But I hope its here by wednesday like walmart said. If they wait till tomorrow to ship them to ups , then everyone is pretty much gonna get them late cause theres no way they can get them everywhere in a day. If I dont get mine by wednesday when I leave work I have to wait til Monday to get it when my work opens back up.
I also find it strange...that the UPS lady told me she showed a delivery date of today but it didnt come. Can you explain this for me SNOW? And I promise you Im not bein sarcastic.

Snow
11-21-2005, 06:21 PM
It's okay... I know you're not being sarcastic.

Who knows why she said that. It wouldn't be the first time I've gotten multiple different info (all of it wrong) from customer service people. Again remember that many of these businesses are actually outsourcing their customer service these days and most dont know what the heck they're doing. They dont know anymore about the business they are represented than what is told to them. Sometimes they are not even in the same country with the business.

I suppose it is possible that Walmart and UPS worked out some deal to ship with a DO NOT DELIVER BEFORE date on it and programmed their computers to not show anything more to the public than that UPS has the billing info. I'm not sure why they would do that though... except maybe it would cut down on people calling them to say...... "Hey, the website says my package is already in town, can I come over and get it?" Others might call to say... "Hey, my friends package already shows it's in their town but mine is still in Texas. Why?!" They may have had enough experience with time sensitive releases like the Harry Potter books to decide to do it that way.

That's merely guessing on my part though. That's not how UPS has operated before.

Now I also see that the UPS website hasn't updated the tracking info since a little after 2 pm this afternoon. So they could very well have gotten them shortly after that and hopefully will show something different in a few hours.

TexasCowboy
11-21-2005, 06:26 PM
Yeah I dont know either and Im tired of thinkin about. Im just gonna have faith that it'll be here by wednesday like Walmart said. If I dont see an update tomorrow though...I think Im gonna call both walmart and UPS and find out exactly whats goin on.

ProducerJ
11-21-2005, 06:35 PM
Well listen, if anyone has the room to complain, it's gonna be me. I'm scheduling my Thanksgiving vacation around this thing's arrival!

I can't leave town until my Garth Weekend is completely put together and in the logs. I'm currently scheduled to take tomorrow off and go in Wed. to put the segments together. But if one should happen to arrive tomorrow (and I've got 3 different batches of them coming to 2 different addresses) then I could get it put together tomorrow and take Wed. off.

However, if it doesn't come until Wednesday afternoon and I don't get it done in time to make the 8 hour drive home Wednesday night, Garth had better plan on calling up my Mama and explaining to her why her oldest granddaughter didn't make it home for Thanksgiving dinner!

I went in to Walmart today and they told me to expect them to arrive tomorrow. But who knows if the person knows for sure. I went up to her and started to ask, she cut me off saying they dont have it yet. I said, I was simply going to ask if there was a limit on how many we could buy Friday. She apologized and said she was sorry, its just that so many have been coming in asking if they can buy it yet that she just assumed that is what I was going to ask lol. She said there is no limit and to buy buy buy them. I told her, dont worry lol.

well this is what it says on the tracking thing....



*UPS has received shipper's billing information electronically. Billing information received does not indicate shipment pickup or drop-off. Please contact the shipper for more details

however... i think it is all a big hoax. i think they are tracking all of them and i think they know exactly where they all are...but they are not puting the info up on site. i think they are doing it on purpose..that way ,..even though it is irritating as hell... it will make it really exciting when the it actually shows up at your door.

this is ridiculous, mine still says billing info recieved as well..... I mean a couple people have changed but very few.... Walmart did make us a promise that we'd get them by the 23rd, and they should darn well do it... and the fact of the matter is if we don't get it the 23rd we won't get it until the 28th!!

To me I can't deal with that fact and will have to haul my but down to Walmart on the day after thanksgiving at about 1 am or so and buy yet another copy, thanks to Walmart's intelligence...... and they I asure you will get an earful from my husband(who doesn't let people push him around) and me.....


I mean if they hadn't of advertised it so publically it wouldn't be such a big deal, but they basically bragged about how you'd get it on your door step on the 23rd come hell or high water..... yet it seems likely that for many of us they are not going to live up to that! That sounds like false Advertising...

And heck I know some have it worse than us, Joyce doesn't get to start her Thanksgiving until she has the box set...

Why do I have a very bad feeling that come tomorrow, Wal-Mart is going to have a LOT of explaining to do to a lot of very upset fans? They should not guarantee delivery of an item that they can not deliver on the date they promised. I don't want to put the cart before the horse, so to speak, before tomorrow even rolls around. But if come 5pm tomorrow, a whole lot of GB fans don't have this boxed set in hand, Wal-Mart is going to be the one to blame, NOT UPS. Wal-Mart puts the orders through; UPS just ships them when and where they are told to.

Edited to add: I just checked on my order. The tracking page says it's "in transit". I hope that's good news, and it doesn't mean it's stuck on a truck in Nowhereville, USA.

My dad's company uses our garage as a shipping drop-off and pick-up location for copier service parts and their primary shipper is UPS... so I deal with them fairly often. A couple of notes about their procedures...

"Recieved billing information" means that Walmart has sent them the information about the package via computer or phone, but has not actually delivered the package to them for shipping yet. If this is the message you are getting, it is Walmart that you need to call, not UPS. They can't do much if they don't have the package.

Their web-site is not automatically updated when packages scan, either, but that doesn't mean the package isn't moving. Sometimes a package can be scanned in three or four locations for arrival and departure before the website gets updated, so it might appear that the package is sitting in one place for a long time and then suddenly it ends up in a whole other state.

If you know the tracking number of your package, you can call the UPS toll free information line. Sometimes the information available to the operators will be more updated then what is available on the website.

Those of you who have posted already regarding where your package is please let us know *when* you ordered. I'm starting to wonder if Walmart messed up a whole time-frame of orders and didn't send them out to UPS or something. If it was a UPS problem we probably wouldn't see some of the packages that came from the same place already about to arrive and others apparently missing. I think a few phone calls to Walmart are probably in order especially if the packages don't arrive by Friday!

Good luck :)

I am hoping that so many box sets were pre-ordered that Wal-Mart and UPS are just too overwelmed to scan all the packages and that we won't actually see any tracking info until each package hits our local UPS distribution centers later today or tonight. I have had packages that were never scanned upon departure before but that arrived on time so I am still holding out hope.

I did call WM and the person I spoke with said they would put a trace on the package and e-mail me with UPS's response. I'll let you know when/if I hear from them.

I think it's a good idea for us to share or order date and other info. We may very well find some patterns as Wendi suggested.

I ordered mine on 11/13/05

It changed to "billing received - In transit" on 11/18/05 and has not changed since.


I agree that it is very likely that Walmart and UPS are both swamped with this order and it may actually show up on your doorstep before anything changes on the tracking website.

Hey...... I dont think they really had a clue as to how overwhelming a bunch of GB fans can be after a Garth drought and them being the only bar in town. *lol*

BUT..........

To be on the safe side I have just emailed Walmart's customer service people to let them know that I'm concerned that it doesn't seem to yet even be in UPS's hands and it's supposed to be here tomorrow. I also said that I preordered because of their promise of getting it BY 11/23 and if that wasn't the case then I'd have been better off braving the Black Friday crowds and saving the shipping costs.

If anyone else wants to email them... go to this website and fill in the email form: http://www.walmart.com/cservice/cu_commentsonline.gsp?cu_heading=8

Or if you prefer to call, the number is: 1-800-966-6546 from 6 a.m. to 1 a.m. (CT), 7 days a week.

True..... but I noticed in the case of at least one person it showed on their tracking info that their shipping was 2nd day Air with UPS.

Now that wasn't even an option as far as choosing how you get it.... so I think that some of the packages may have been bumped up to Air transportation in order to get them where they need to be. So they still might show up on Friday.

But I dont think we should be getting all upset just yet when they aren't even late as of yet.

I ordered mine the same date and my UPS tracking info says exactly the same thing although on the WM website tracking info they show it as shipped so I assume (HOPE!) UPS actually has the package by now.

I just checked out Walmart.com and tried tracking my order again. This time WAS different that the last time I checked.

My tracking info now says HODGKINS, ILLINOIS and 945am this morning(EST) - which is about 1 hour and 15 minutes ago. I also just checked Yahoo maps, and Hodgkins is 305 miles from me(Norwalk, OH), so hopefully my set should at least be in Ohio by tonight.

My delivery date now says November 23-but it also says that my delivery has been rescheduled.

So, I will be waiting anxiously tomorrow for my Box set

I dont think we just be getting too upset at this point either...however this box set is huge and I am frustrated that no one can tell me where my package is that is supposed to be in my hands tomorrow. Hopefully its one of those things that just slipped by the guy that scans the packages and it will be here tomorrow, but if its not here tomorrow Walmart will never hear the end of it from me being on how they promised it will be here by tomorrow

I just called Walmart and they told me my package will be shipping from Texas. However, it has not been picked up by UPS!!!! Billing information has been received but no package has been shipped! I talked to Walmart and the woman on the phone said that they will not ship the packages until the 23rd. I informed her that my invoice said I will have it on the 23rd. She said it does not matter because the website said it will not be released until then. This means that there is no way I am getting it tomrrow. I mentioned this to her and she said well you should get it by the 28th. I said why would I pay $5 extra in shipping when I live across the street from Walmart and I can get it on the 25th??? This makes no sense. I think I am going to go get mine on Black Friday and then send the other one back for a refund. I talked to UPS and they said they got the billing info on the 18th and it had a scheduled delivery date of the 21st!!!! I said well that is kind of funny being that today is the 22nd! She said that Walmart has not even scheduled a date for pickup of the package to be shipped!!!!! I am so mad right now I could spit! I arranged my departure for Thanksgiing around this delivery and now it is not even going to be here tomorrow!!! I think Garth needs to rethink this deal with Walmart... it turns out it is not in his best interest!

TexasCowboy
11-22-2005, 01:03 PM
shes right Weatherman...its not released until the 25th...but it will be sent. They already sent it otherwise there would have been no reason to preorder it. Youve heard it everywhere....if you preorder you get it 2 days before its released. I think we'll get it even though my hope is startin to dwindle down every minute that passes by.

PJ
11-22-2005, 01:03 PM
Again, before we all panic, let's wait and see what happens tomorrow. Just because the packages aren't in the tracking system doesn't mean UPS doesn't have them. Some packages only get scanned when delivered and not from their point of origin. Unfortunately, the folks we talk to only have the same information we see with the online tracking. I'm trying to give everyone the benefit of the doubt even though I'm as anxious as everyone else.

Looks to me like what they did was scan the packages for UPS billing... sorted them by Walmart distribution centers....... sent them out to these regional distribution centers...... and then are handing them over to UPS from there. So all the time they just said "billing info received" was while they were being transported from the central warehouse to the regional Walmart distribution centers.

I dont think they could have posted it as it wasn't in UPS's hands until just now.

What it looks like is that they labeled and scanned the boxes for UPS billing at their central warehouse. Then they grouped the boxes by regional Walmart distribution centers and transported them to those regional distribution centers.

It was only after they reached the regional distribution centers that Walmart actually handed them over to the UPS people.... and it was at this time that they entered UPS's tracking system.

It really does make a great deal of sense and seems very efficient of them to do it that way.

It might be efficient for them but what about for people who are excited about recieving something new from Garth. I still have hope for everyone getting their boxed sets. Walmart did promise to everyone who ordered by the 18th that they will have it by the 23rd. I just think walmart should have done a better job in tracking the information. I know I shouldnt have flipped out like I did being on how they are not late yet. But to reiterate the point of why ahve a tracking # available if you cant track it. I feel for the ones who still show billin info recd. Cause as of 30 minutes I was in there shoes and I was a little angry

Looks like all us poor souls in the SE must have our box sets traveling together on the same lost truck. :(

Since UPS trucks get loaded the night before and then are out all day delivering, if ours don't show as arrived in our cities by tonight we most likely won't be receiving them tomorrow. :( :( :( :(

My UPS info updated at 11:43 Am Today and my box set is located in Secaucus NJ. So I won't be getting it until Wednesday after all :(. By the way I live in Oyster Bay, Long Island NY. I don't think I can wait much longer!

Very cool!!

I actually live just east of Chocktaw Beach near Freeport if you know where that is. I always say near Destin when people ask cause people tend to have heard of it! :)

For me, out here in California, Wal-Mart's tracking says "In Transit", while the UPS site says only "Billing Information Received". So, I'm wondering if UPS even has my Box Set in one of their distribution centers. I, too, am hoping that my Box Set is on its way and that UPS just hasn't updated their info. I'm going to quit wondering what is going on and wait patiently for the UPS truck to arrive. I usually don't have any problems with UPS getting shipments to me.

Sorry to hear you're in the same boat as some of us Bee, but thanks for helping me update the map.

Just got off the phone with WM again. The first person I spoke to gave me the same story about not being able to ship until the item is available on the 25th, so I asked to speak to a supervisor. The supervisor told me they are having problems getting this item out and that I will not be receiving it tomorrow but should receive it Friday. I asked how that would be possible since UPS doesn't deliver on Friday. His response was there was a special agreement put in place to get them delivered Friday. Does that mean they'll be sent 2 day air (since Moni stated that only air packages will be delivered Friday)? Don't know. He also said I would be refunded the cost of shipping if I do not receive it tomorrow.

Guess I'll believe it when I see it.

my boxed set is in Mesquite, Texas....looks like I'll have to wait to get it here in NE Oklahoma :(

I don't live far from Garth, he could have just brought it by... :p

PJ
11-22-2005, 05:42 PM
Ya know, I have to feel for Garth right now too. I know he has always been a person who stands by his word and this is the first time he put his music into someone else's hands and they are not holding up their end of the deal. To have such a huge publicity campaign pushing for pre-orders by promising box set delivery before it goes on sale to the public and then not meeting that promise, I can imagine Garth's not happy about it either. Maybe he just needs to get in that big WM truck from the commercial and really start delivering box sets door to door.

Hey Garth, you can start right here and I'll even help!

I just checked mine and it says that it is in Mesquite(spelling?), TX. I am in Houston, TX. I am excited!!! That is about 4 hous from me. Looks like I will have to hold on a little bit longer. I am finally able to calm down a bit since ups has been updated. I am going to be waiting for it tomorrow.

PJ,
I understand your frustration. I have heard that it is inroute to my local UPS center so I should get that tomorrow. I will wait to see what happens. I hope Garth realizes that no one is mad at him.

mine still says in transit from Mesquite, Texas

it also says it has a rescheduled delivery date of November 23...I didn't know that they had an original delivery date, UPS coulf have told me :p

Snow
11-22-2005, 07:01 PM
Ya'll.... that "rescheduled delivery date" is just an automatic thing that UPS does.

The first date that you had was really an estimated date based on the processing time for the order and how far/how long they thought it would take to get to you.

Now when UPS actually DOES have it in their hot little hands (the package and not just the billing info) their computer automatically issues a rescheduled date. It should be the same for most of you though (Nov. 23) unless you were late ordering.

It would be cool if PG had a map with just the outline of states that could be filled in when a box set arrives in a state so we can see geographically where they are arriving first. ;)


great idea PJ!

Unfortunately, some of us who ordered early are still waiting to see rescheduled delivery on our tracking info. Am I blue? :(

Snow
11-22-2005, 07:11 PM
Yeah..... I'm wondering if some of you in the far SE (Fl, Al, Miss, La., etc.) are having problems because of limited warehouse space/damaged warehouse space and other transportation glitches in your regional distribution area caused by this year's storm damage?

Mine left Secaucus, New Jersey at 4:35pm today...hope it makes it to Boston before I leave work at 3pm tomorrow since my company is letting us leave early. If it doesn't, I may have to work a little later.
