Of course, being I really just started reading my stack from last month I'm not sure why I'm excited they are coming.

Okay guys, when do you get your DCBS orders? I ask because I have to wonder if I should be pissed and write to them.

So, I do once a month shipping. I see by the package and mailing label, it was packed, or at least mailing label created March 26th, Thursday.

However, on tracking, it wasn't accepted until after 8 pm on Friday, March 27th. Now, Perry I'm sure will give a bit more low down on whether or not my package was there all day, and it just took time for mine to be processed through.

I finally got my package today. I know Saturday is limited, and Sunday is Sunday, and yes, this may be within the 1-3 shipping days, but still, I'm frustrated. Second time this happened. I don't even remember the last time I got my package on a Friday.

So, is this just a bit of "them's the breaks!" and I'm being a pissy bitch, or should I at least air some of my grievance to DCBS?

Honestly, just looking for an opinion. I wouldn't go head hunting; I simply want to know and understand what is occurring.

When DCBS was using UPS or USPS there were many times (well, not many, but a few) that I wouldn't get my books until Monday. It was frustrating so I know how you feel.

However, now that I get my books shipped by Fed-Ex, I have yet to have any problem getting my books on Friday. In fact, I can almost open my door between 10:00 AM and 10:15 AM and I will find the Fed-Ex girl (Jill ... who use to give my boy Baxter dog treats each Friday) walking up to my door. Like clock work.

Also, about 3 or 4 months ago, DCBS sent out an e-mail to all their customers stating that due to them obtaining "MAIL ORDER COMICS" (who filed for bankruptcy) and having to  take over 90% of their Mail Order Comics customers, DCBS stated that those once a month customers who decide to keep their shipments on the last week of the month can almost be assured of later delivery as they have too many customers now to ship everyone's comics on that Wednesday and will have to ship some on Thursday.

They also sent out a link for customers to click on four options:

1 - Keep their books on the last week of the month (Either week 4 or 5 with possible delays)
2 - Change to having your books shipped the first week of the month
3 - Change to having your books shipped the second week of the month
4 - Change to having your books shipped the third week of the month (this is the one I chose)

Perhaps you didn't get the link for these options or perhaps you decided to stay on week 4 (or 5) but my suggestion is to contact them, not to complain, but to change your week to a different week for delivery.

They said the delays will be fixed eventually, but that could still be awhile. A year or so I am guessing.

All that said, I know Jeff usually gets his on the last week, but I have only heard of his books being late a couple times ... I think

This part I wasn't aware of.

This part I was aware of. I figured since everything was working so well, why change? I think I'll just take your suggestion and move up my shipping week to the 3rd week and see if I get more satisfaction. Even the wife was noting this last month "you seem to be quite pissed at them all the time."

Mine get here pretty consistently on Saturday.  I missed the changing your ship week email.  I might switch over to week also.

Of course, even if they showed up on Monday I wouldn't notice because I'm usually still reading the ones from the previous month.   Grin

Yep. Right there with ya. And in fact, along with all those other titles I listed in the Green Arrow thread that I am reading, I just added FF 201-231 to my list as well. One of my favorite runs. Happened right before Byrne took over.

I mean Galactus and the Sphinx fighting each other? First Terrax? Oh yeah

They'll change it to week 3 without a problem. No offer of a discount or anything, even with my grumblings in the email of it always coming so late, (but I did state I understood how busy that last week gets...not a hater, just had to let them know), but yeah, it's all cool.

Well, you did say yourself it was never "late", just later than what you personally wanted.  Tongue

 Grin

If companies gave discounts based solely on what us buyers "wanted" ...
