    On Dec 17th ordered a 4th gen iPod touch with engraving from the Apple online store. An email they previously sent said any iPod ordered by Dec 18th arrives by the 24th with free expedited shipping.

    On the order page it said to expect it between the 21st-24th, but in the email receipt it said "Left Apple: 18 Dec, 2010. Receive it: 28 Dec, 2010." Just wondering which date you think I'll get it. The tracking number says it left Suzhou, China, on the 18. Think I'll get it by the 24th? I live in Ontario, Canada.

    A buddy of mine had one engraved. It arrived 7 days later.

    Shipping can be very vague. Depending on how many terminals it goes through. I purchased a Mac online, It said Shipped Dec.3 est. arrival Dec. 15th. It arrived at my home Dec.5

    It sounds like maybe the confirmation e-mail you received wasn't updated to reflect the free expedited delivery meaning it didn't take that into account and therefor quoted an estimated delivery date after Christmas.

    I wouldn't worry about it as it will probably show in the next couple days. Does the tracking website provide an ETA? If so I would probably trust that one over the confirmation e-mail you received from Apple.

    That's reassuring. I've had good luck with Apple in the past, but wasn't sure about this order being so close to the holidays.

    Thanks! :D I'm pretty excited. I think it might arrive tomorrow.

    Mine shouldn't take much longer, then :)

    Yeah, you're probably right about the confirmation e-mail not reflecting the free expedited shipping. On the UPS tracking page, it doesn't show an ETA, but it is now in my province. I'm thinking it will arrive tomorrow. On Monday it went from Suzhou, to Shanghai, to Alaska; it really moved fast, which surprised me.

    Thanks for the insight, everyone. I feel more reassured that it will come before the 24th :)
