    I bought some black friday items from multiple places including TW and have been checking on the tracking statuses. Some of them have been delayed for 4-7 days more than it should.

    Anyone else experiencing these problems? :(

    Yeah, I think (hope) they are just slammed.

    My guess is that on weekends their packing department is not at work. So they come in on Monday and have a ton of orders to fill. I just got my packed notice this AM. I am hoping to get my package before Saturday.

    Maybe this is why the 2 day shipping was free?

    Also, this should be in "ask TW" so they can see it and respond.

    The thing is it's not really TW's fault, my items from them are stuck in Ontario California for a few days. I've heard about how backed up that shipping facility is, they probably shipped my package off on the wrong truck and are trying to get it back hence the "An exception in the sorting process has occurred. UPS has taken corrective action."

    Should have ordered a little more and gotten the 2 day shipping, oh well.

    I see what you are saying. Yes this is the worst time to buy online in terms of shipping. I misread and thought you had a packing delay as well.

    Its all good, TW always ships out their packages from their factories quickly. The shipping company just screws up on busy holidays. :)

    Ordered Thursday, TW shipped Monday, expected on Friday of this week, UPS moved it a city down, shipping scheduled differently for some reason, moved back to next Monday, UPS ships to that city and it is stuck in that city, Not getting it until Wednesday at the earliest. Beat that :)

    Sounds like my order. Supposed to arrive Friday---won't get here until Tuesday now. No complaints from me as I'm going away Thursday night until Sunday night & the package would sit by my front door for everyone to see. It was stuck in a processing facility in San Luis Obispo.
