    Hey everyone.

    So I ordered a new stock 13" Macbook Pro this morning, and it shipped today. I was given a tracking number, but it hasn't activated yet.

    I got free shipping, but when I called Apple for a shipping estimate, they said it should either arrive tomorrow, or the day after. I asked if I would really get it on Saturday if not Friday, and they confirmed the package will be delivered Friday.

    I was like what? I asked them if they were for serious, they said yes. So I called back and talked to someone else, similar answer, but they added and said Monday for sure.

    I thought free shipping was 3-5/7-10 business days?

    I dunno if I should get my hopes up or what.

    Any input would be appreciated.

    So the configuration you ordered is in-stock at a warehouse nearby and you're complaining it'll arrive early? :confused:

    Free shipping on Macs is done by FedEx, which is a next day service in the US.

    FedEx Ground is not a next-day service in the US; sure there are locations where it's 1 day transit time, but in no way is it guaranteed.

    Complaining? Um, no. Questioning whether a delivery estimate is accurate? Yes. If you read my OP, you'll clearly see this sentence which explains the premise for my post:

    I dunno if I should get my hopes up or what.

    I called Fedex. Turns out the delivery estimate was wrong and I won't be getting it for another week.

    Thanks.
