    I realize this was in Coupons, but I'm starting to get worried. It's now been roughly 10 days since the box shipped, and I haven't seen any cries of triumph in the other thread, so I figured we needed to see this in the most public area. Just make me feel better and say you got it [​IMG]

    I haven't gotten mine yet either. It supposedly shipped on the 11th. So you are not the only one. I hope it gets here soon, I hate waiting for things that I see at best buy. At least it was cheaper :).

    I just received an email that my copy shipped yesterday.

    I think that TAU is seriously backlogged. I have orders from a month ago (from the sale that they had) that are still pending.

    I received confirmation that it had been shipped on 11/9/01 (I ordered it 11/5/01) but have not yet received it. I also ordered Season 3 during the free shipping sale on 10/21/01 and have still not received notification that it has been shipped and it still shows as pending in my account. I am a bit concerned because they have not responded to my e-mail and they haven't even been answering the phone the last few days.
    NOTE: A few weeks prior to the sale I ordered Season 1 and received it within 5 days of when I placed my order.
    I would like to order from them again for the holidays but I'm not sure if I'll get my order in time. [​IMG]

    I received a shipping notice on the 11th as well, but still no sign of the discs. Do they have a customer service number we can call to find the status of our orders?

    The sale dramatically slowed TAU's order fulfillment. My copy of Sopranos season 2 shipped just one day before street date (TAU usually ships earlier to account for the mailing delays), and arrived 2 weeks and a day later. I spoke to them in the interim and was told that they've received a lot of reports of shipments not yet arrived.

    You guys would be better off calling that 1-888-40-TOTAL and speak to the owner directly. My copy of XFILES season 4 shippied on the 13th. And I know that it takes at least 10 mailing days to get it to where I'm at (Las Vegas, NV). This is due to the crappy shipping and with the recent events it may take longer. They are in Canada after all. I'm hoping it will come today but I seriously doubt it.

    I also haven't received mine yet and it shipped on 11/09. The truth is, even it comes next week it's worth it to save close to $50. This part probably belongs in coupons but I also know they have the 4-disc Jurassic Park set up for $44.58, which is over $15 less than most other places, but if the X-Files S4 really takes two weeks to arrive, I don't think it will be worth it for the JP set.

    When I called around last Thurdsay (15th), the fellow was unable to tell me the exact day it shipped! He said he thought it had gone at the start of the week.

    No sign yet.

    Yeah, they told me the same thing last week. They told me it showed shipped, but also couldn't tell me the day. I seriously think they are so backlogged that they aren't even doing the computer entries. I've never gotten a shipping notice on it, and I'm really starting to get ticked given that now I have to wait till FRIDAY to get it, and I'll have no time to watch it really [​IMG] I'm going to call them again today, but I'm guessing that they all really did go out, and that since we all got cheap shipping (apparently) and the US Mail is running slow [​IMG]

    The only thing I got in the mail today was my paycheck. [​IMG]
    So while I was disappointed in not getting my X-Files Season 4 DVD boxset from TAU, a paycheck is a paycheck.

    FOR THOSE WHO HAVE NOT GOTTEN SHIPPING NOTICES:

    I just talked to TAU, and they were shocked my order still showed P. Some checking, and they found out that it HAD NOT shipped. Anyone who still has not recieved notice should call them 1-877-40-TOTAL(tomorrow is NOT a holiday in Canada, so you should be fine), not email because that's wonky. They will upgrade you to Express shipping for free.

    These people have been working round the clock for pretty much the last 2 weeks with 2 video game system launches, their free shipping weekend etc. We can cut them some slack.

    I got my shipping notice on 11/13, and my copy arrived in today's mail on the east coast (Mass.).

    Anyone know if a shipping notice is a guarantee that it shipped? I got a shipping notice on the 11th and don't want to bug them if unneccesary. As I wrote above, I got an email saying shipping was taking a little extra time but I don't think they checked on my order specifically. Could it never have shipped?

    I received mine several days ago, & I've watched a few episodes. In a word GREAT! If a firm cannot handle the extra business that a special sale or promotion generates, then they should have them or should make sure they have enough bodies ahead of time. Nothing loses customers faster than poor service!
