I've got Shield, not sure if it's the same Mon on Sword.
Not sure when this expires.
From Nintendo email:
Before January 15th 2019 2020
Before January 15th 2019 2020
EDIT: Updated year to 2020.
2019 or 2020? It doesn't say in the screenshot. I hope it is the latter or else this post should be removed.
My bad, 2020…forgot what year we're in haha.
Ordered from Big W. I think the W is upside down because it was a Big MISTAKE!
Why do I always put faith in these quasi-adequate retailers? Order from Amazon if you want a game delivered at launch!
Few user also complaining that they haven't received their order from Amazon too.
Both my mates that preordered from Amazon got it around lunch time.
Mine got shipped today :'( Expected Tuesday.
Same I received my dual pack steelbook edition this afternoon.
Mine was in my parcel locker at 7.30 this morning
Ordered mine from Amazon, got it early afternoon Friday.
I'm a Prime member and pre ordered back in August and the only was only sent today, I won't see it till mid next week… Amazon AU isn't the well oiled machine US is.
Damn that sucks dude
I got my pre-ordered ,physical copy of Shield from AmazonAU yesterday.
Just go and buy it from the shop and ask Amazon for a refund. They’ll refund you and then not bother canceling the order or ask you to send it back!
Happened to me with Luigis Mansion.
Pre-ordered mine 2 days before release mainly to get the $5 discount. Got my copy at 11:45am on release date from aus post.
Got my gold satchel thing earlier as well. Exciting times.
Does it do… anything?
I mean, you can see it…
Collected mine… can't see it. Where do I look?
@Dotaguy: How do you collect it?
@lasterato: You need to go to mystery gift. The email sent to you by Amazon will detail the process it's pretty straightforward
@Dotaguy: Haven't tried it yet but probably need to go to the clothing store, use the change rooms to swap from your normal bag to the gold one.
I have a nine month old so I've only managed to get around an hour play time so far. And the starting story line is taking way too long.
How was it delivered if you don't mind me asking?
Email code, if you buy via Amazon.
Thanks! I just got it
Would you mind posting it, in case it's a generic code?
THank you OP. I never know when there’s mystery gift to be received
Dont forget for claiming free pikachu or eevee if you have Let's go pikachu or eevee at wild area.
is it obvious how to do this?
(I'm living vicariously through the internet until Amazon delivers my preorder)
It's fairly obvious if you're in the habit of talking to the NPCs.
To be very blatant, after you take your first train trip and are delayed due to Wooloos on the track, talk to the people in the station.
I’m guilty of talking to every NPC.
But probably a good thing I only do this in gaming and not IRL.
Is it straight forward, like do they tell you about this or is it something I have to look out for?
It's be a the train station at the west of wild area
Thank you for this haha, I usually avoid talking to people… I wish I'd been able to get the Eevee though.
Can't you catch them in the game anyway I seen Pikachu earlier in long dried grass near pokekid dressed as Pikachu. Eevee is also wild according to it's Pokedex entry but I am yet to see it.
Anyone who's ordered on Amazon and not yet received (like myself), start up a live chat with an Amazon rep and voice your dissatisfaction. Just received a $15 credit on my next order for the effort.
It really varies depending on who you get. Mine insisted $10 was the maximum available on my Shield preorder which was dated Wednesday (I cancelled my original preorder to redo it to get the various Shopback promotions).
I only got $7 and I ordered both Sword and Shield in the same order…
In the customer satisfaction survey right after the chat, give them your feedback. I did this and only gave 2 stars because the agent frustrated me with the “your friends agent was wrong to give more than $10” and then I got a call back where they suddenly had authority to give a further $20 credit and will accelerate the timing of delivery from a Fastway (apparently they can request 9am Monday morning).
Mind you I don’t complain often to Amazon and buy a lot so maybe my account is in a good standing… for now. Shrug.
