Finn’s Christmas present finally shipped today with an ETA of Christmas Eve! This present is THE present. It’s the only thing he asked for from every Santa we’ve seen: a Star Wars Lego set. So it’s very important that it get here on time!
I ordered it from Amazon about 2 weeks ago — so I thought. Turns out I put it in my shopping cart and never confirmed my order. So this past Sunday it dawned on me that I’d never followed through. I quickly logged on and confirmed my order only to receive an email on Monday that my order wouldn’t ship until January 19!! What?!? I had ordered two other Lego sets with it — a box of regular Legos for Finn and a new box of a Duplos for Caden — and these were out of stock til January.
Once I took the back-ordered sets off my order, the Star Wars Lego was ETA Christmas Eve!! I could have switched from Free Super Saver shipping to $5 shipping, but me and shipping don’t mix. Paying for shipping eats up half of what I saved by ordering online in the first place (the set was $10 cheaper online than in stores). I’m confident that Amazon (er, Santa) will get it here on time. But just in case, Walmart doesn’t close until 6 p.m. Christmas Eve and the one nearest me has three in stock.
