Paperwhite shipment delayed
« on: November 02, 2018, 02:14:23 am »
I received an email this morning stating the order I placed for the Paperwhite would be delayed until 11/15.  Bummer  :-[

    :(

    I've not gotten such a thing. But I'm still a bit wishy washy on buying it -- I dont' need another Kindle! :o

    If I get such a note, what I might do is cancel it and then maybe trade in my older Oasis to get the discount and then re-order.

    I might do that anyway.

    No such email here in the UK either and Amazon are still offering all options for delivery on 7th November.

    I don't really need this new Kindle either, but having passed on both the Oasis models, I just want the excitement of a new one.    :o :D

    I saw a similar post on another forum.  They bought a 32gb, WiFi only without special offers, which is what I ordered.  They canceled their order and reordered the same thing but with special offers and the shipping date was moved back to 11/7.  Must be the removal of the special offers.

    I played around with ordering a new Paperwhite with different combinations because I am bored.  I think I need to find a good book to read.  It appears to be the combination of 32GB without special offers that has the shipping date delayed.

    Oh no. The 7th already feels like years away. [emoji23] I hope I don't see one of the emails. [emoji1696] I dont need a new one either. I have been happy with my Voyage, but I really want this one anyway.

    No email still -- I'm getting the 8GB with special offers.

    But I did go ahead and sell my Oasis to Betsy. . . . which helps cover part of the cost and makes me feel a bit less like a lost cause where kindles are concerned. ::) ;) :D

    They have done this before. Order it with SO and then spend the $ when it arrives to remove them. Pretty sure I had to do that with Voyage or the first Oadis.
