You guys will be all over the excitement and on to something else by the time mine arrives. I'm the one getting free standard shipping and didn't order until a couple of days ago, so delivery is given as November 22-24.

However, the discussion about how soon a new device shows up on your account made me go check, and my Oasis (8 GB, wifi only, SO) already shows as mine. I renamed it, but I'm not creative about that. I give my Kindles a phone number or email address as a name in hope if I ever misplace one whoever finds it will contact me.

Thanks for the mention of Mobile Reads reviews already up. What's there is encouraging.

My credit card finally got charged and I got a tracking number! I got an email from UPS saying that I have a package coming but it says its arriving on 11/1. My order page on Amazon still says 10/31. Im going to be really ticked off if I dont get it on Tuesday when I ordered on the announcement day, because of Amazons shipping. Oh well. Ive got my fingers crossed that the date will move.

No point in getting ticked off prematurely. Your order says 10/31 -- think positively. But if you feel the need to do SOMETHING. Take a screenshot of it and, in the event it does NOT arrive tomorrow, send a pleasantly worded email asking why and request a credit for late shipping. If you're nice about it, you'll likely get it. :)

Caveat: if there's something extreme in the way of weather or other transportation disruption, that's a different story. But that doesn't seem to be a problem at the moment.

THAT, on the other hand, is a big enough difference that I might ask the question NOW. :o Or, wait until tomorrow and hope it's a glitch. Seems very strange. ???

Me: no change in shipping or email with a notice; it still says shipping soon, and indicates arrival tomorrow by 8 p.m.

Monday AM and it STILL hasn't shipped, still isn't listed in My Devices and card hasn't been charged. Still says delivery is for Oct. 31 but instead of by 8PM, it now says 11PM. I'm glad I ordered it minutes after the Oasis 2 announcement was made, for all the good it did. Calling Amazon soon but I expect the date will slip into November somewhere.  :'(

Mine still says Pre Order and says estimated arrival October 31 by 8pm. Estimated could mean anytime after that.

Mine hasnt shipped either. However, I live about 12 miles from an Amazon warehouse. The only wrinkle that might develop is delivery by USPS. My local post office is a little bonkers. Mail delivered anytime from 10:00 am until 8:00 pm. Changes day to day. Occasionally they will list some silly excuse for non-delivery on time. Last week it was the lack of a code or key for the front door to my building. I live in a townhouse with a front porch, where USPS always leaves packages. They usually deliver the next day. Suspect these excuses are for Amazons benefit.

Yes, very true. Im still remaining optimistic that UPS will pull through and Ill have it tomorrow. I did go ahead and take a few screenshots that say Im supposed to get it on Tuesday. Ill definitely be contacting Amazon if something goes awry. No bad weather here in IL but the package is coming from NJ. So maybe between here and there.

I missed the early order date, and placed my order last week.  The order says shipment on Nov 24.  You early birds are lucky.

On the main order page mine now says shipping today. When I click to track it still has delivery expected by tomorrow 8 p.m. but no delivery tracking.

I do think it's at the Warehouse in Springfield -- they'll probably 'ship' it today by having UPS pick it up late tonight or early tomorrow and deliver it to me in Arlington -- not even 10 miles away. :D

They have debited my Gift Card balance, which triggered an auto re-load. And the balance is a pending charge on my CC.

My main order page says "Arriving Mon, Nov 6, Shipping today".  When I click "track package" it still shows, "Expected to ship Nov 3 - Arriving Nov 6, 2017" as it's been since I placed the order on 10/21.

My credit card shows the sale as pending, so I sure hope this means it will ship earlier and I'll receive it before Nov. 6! **crossing fingers**  :)

I had paid for 1 day ship to get it Friday the 3rd, instead of the 6th it said with 2 day prime. My order says now preparing for shipment, but still says it gets here by Friday and will ship on Thursday. My credit card has a pending now on the cost.
I still expect to get it on Friday as planned though.

i forget. Does UPS leave it at the door or do they require a signature for Kindles? Can't remember what happened the past few times.

I would call these excuses "lies". On one delivery that was switched from Amazon to USPS I got a message that delivery was attempted at 11 pm and couldn't be completed because the mailbox was locked. My mailbox isn't locked and at 11 pm I was sitting at my computer in the dining room still hoping the item would be delivered. I definitely would have heard anyone attempting to unlock my "locked" mailbox. Every time this happens with USPS I write to Amazon to tell them what goes on, but I doubt it does any good.

I'm in the UK. Mine was dispatched about an hour ago, still scheduled for delivery tomorrow. There is no specified time, but on past patterns, I would expect to get it late morning or early afternoon.
