    I returned my W37 at BB and purchased it from Target at 10% thinking that it won't ship for at least 2 weeks (w40?). I just got an email saying that it's shipped already!.

    I hope they didn't ship me the W37 stock from their warehouse or something.. :eek:

    wait.. i just checked the UPS tracking number and it says:

    Estimated Arrival: Nov 12, 2007

    WTH? Anyone have experience with this? Could it just be a bad estimation?

    where does it say its current location is, usually they dont post estimated times until they have it in their possession

    thats really odd

    The only entry in the progress list says:

    Sep 24, 2007 04:51:28 PM US CARRIER NOTIFIED TO PICK UP PACKAGE

    So what do u guys think? Just a delivery estimation bug on the UPS' side?

    this is what i'm scared of.. I'd really like the discount.. but don't really want to wait a month and some change for this when I can pick it up in stores in a little over a week.

    Places like Target and Amazon over estimate shipping. Just wait for the tracking number to post and see what that date for that is.

    I know in past shipments from Amazon they are always 6 over what the shipping time should be (i.e. Estimated arrival date 9/27 and it arrives on 9/21). Its happened to me a lot.

    No, it's actually prepped for ship, it just hasn't been picked up by UPS yet (will happen sometime tomorrow).

    I wouldn't worry too much about Week 37. These things usually drop ship which means Target probably got them in on Saturday or got notification Saturday that they were at a distribution center.

    If you do somehow get a W37 then you can always return or exchange at a local Target store.

    That is good to hear that they are shipping early. I am currently contemplating whether or not to order mine from Target or Amazon. If I go by their websites, I would get it much earlier if I purchased through Amazon.

    When did you place your order? If you just ordered it in the past couple days, I think I'll probably go ahead and order from Target since I can get the discount and still get it fairly soon.

    Seems a little fishy. Maybe it was just a glitch on your order... but if you do end up receiving it, let us know what week you got.

    I ordered it on Thursday, 09/20. Many people got ship notifications with tracking numbers. They are shipping and I'd be surprised if they weren't week 38 units.

    It's hard to say how many pre-orders Target had, but they either didn't have a lot of pre-orders OR they got a butt load of touches in.

    Where are they shipping from?

    Where do Target.com orders ship from?

    I ordered Tuesday or so, but haven't receive ship notification yet.

    This is worrying me, I ordered from Target.com Thursday evening and I have not gotten any "Shipped" email, just the auto confirmation email after checkout.

    I ordered last week too and haven't received notice yet. They're just starting to fill orders, no need to worry.

    Hm, I s'pose. Just odd that people who ordered the same day and even days later than us, have had theirs shipped. I'll wait another day or two then for mine to ship.

    I'm afraid to cancel and re-order, for fear of not having the 10% coupon available anymore. The web site still lists the Touch as pre-order as well.

    But yeah, I'm going to give it a day or 2 also.

    I'm worried too. I ordered on the 17 of sept. and it estimates delivery on oct 19- Nov 6. Whats the deal with people who ordered after me having their item shipped. By the way did anyone who reported shipping recieve their ipod, or did the shipping information update(indicating that the item actually shipped.) Hmmm i wonder if any of those shipped were 16GB or were they all just the 8GB model. Well i guess i will just have to wait patiently, i just hope it ships soon.
