Topic: Amazon shipping pre-orders of Pokemon Sun & Moon later than expected

Amazon Prime members usually get games delivered to them by the day the game comes out, but according to several users on Amazon, Pokemon Sun & Moon isn't expected to be delivered until Tuesday the 22nd in the US. One user cites a conversation with an Amazon employee that said that Nintendo wasn't clear on what day they would get the first shipment to Amazon, which means there's still a chance that the games could be delivered on release day, but it's currently unknown.
In order to fix this, I changed my shipping from two-day to one-day, and my expected delivery date is back to Friday the 18th.

I am getting two copies on Friday for sure (used a birthday gift card to get the steelbook pack) and I have two other copies preordered (for my kids) but I might not get those until Monday since I get my check early Friday morning. So I might be downloading a copy of Moon for myself on Friday. One of the Sun copies is for me but I am not sure I can wait until Monday to play. My eldest two are getting the Moon copies and my other son is getting Sun. If I do not get the second copies of Sun & Moon on Friday then the steelbook pack is going to my two sons and my daughter & I will wait until Monday for the other two.

@DefHalan 1. Even with expedited shipping, Amazon is still cheaper than the eShop
2. I lost all my Pokémon Y save data due to a corrupted SD card, I'm not risking that again by getting Pokémon Sun digitally

@MetaRyan
1) It is the same price on Amazon as the eShop
2) Your Cartridge data can become corrupted just like a SD card can

@MetaRyan No save data is safe without a proper account system and cloud saves.

I know for a fact that both SD cards and game cards can get wrecked. my old copy of omega ruby doesn't work anymore and my daughter had a problem with her 2DS' sd card.

I am really excited for these games. I can't wait until Friday.

That's why you always back up your SD card. And as far as I know, there is no way to backup cartridge games.

Fast or not, preordering from Amazon was still around 20% cheaper than downloading it from the eshop...

And it's still a bit more expensive than buying it in the United States.

That's the risk you take from ordering online. Getting freight to someone on time can be quite difficult. At least these are games and not medical supplies eh?

Yeah i would never pre-order a game through Amazon either EB Games or Bestbuy for me luckily enough Bestbuy had the dual pack still because every EB Games location was sold out
