Its been 3 days since the supposed release of the Clip+ to normal retailers and there’s still absolutely no sign that the Clip+ even exists anywhere besides Bestbuy. Even so, when i asked if the bestbuy here in Kohler, Wisconsin had one, they had no clue what it even was. I’m assuming if the Bestbuy here ever gets the clip+, they’ll only supply 4gb since thats all they have online. Thats even worse since half of the reason the Clip+ came out in the first place was to boast its massive 8gb of capacity (for its size). Do you think i should give up on the thought of Bestbuy ever getting an 8gig model? The only reason I ask is because I didn’t want to pay more than retail price and then wait for shipping, but if I have to in order to get an 8gb model, then I will.
This brings me to part 2 of my question… Lets say i order online and decide 15 extra dollars isn’t really that bad for next day shipping. Is it worth it? and if anyone has ever ordered something with next day shipping, How soon did you really get yours (amount of days and the time of day (just curious))…
I order everything online, except for normal groceries and I’ve found that next day shipping is not a very good deal if you place the order late in the week, as many shippers will only deliver Monday thru Friday.
If you order on a normal weekday, each website usually clearly states when the parcel should arrive. Usually it works, but sometmes there are delays, even when you pay extra for fast shipping.
Personally, I don’t use the premium shipping options very often, because with my luck; if there is a possibility of a problem, there usually is.
With that said, I got excellent service out of the Sansa store… From the instant I ordered it online to my doorstep was 2 days. Of course, there won’t be a discount on the item there.
Some of the discount retailers do an excellent job in getting you the merchandise quickly and some are mediocre.
I have great luck with Amazon when I use regular shipping, but not so great when the “free shipping” is selected. Others here have had great luck with the free shipping option.
Good luck with whatever method you decide…
