Can't order zumo 550

I have placed 3 orders so far for a zumo 550 and although the places say they have them in stock(they lie) every time I have had to cancel the order because I get an email 2 days later that it is back ordered. Crap. I made up my mind to buy it and now I can't get my hands on one. I am on hold right now (yet again) waiting to talk to someone about getting one. The worst part is they send you an email to confirm the order and it is a sales pitch to sell you memory or a battery and they don't tell you it is back ordered. I finally get an email saying so. Really crappy service,

Ted, You're in the US, just order from amazon.

You may pay a few bucks more, but amazon is a superior online vendor.

PS. I mean buy from amazon themselves, not one of the market place sellers that advertise there.

I may do that if the last place I ordered if from back orders it. I called them first and they said they had them but he answered instantly and I don't think he looked it up. I have been trying to call all day but it has been busy.

I had to do just that, I called those assholes at CameraAddict.com who said they had it in stock only to find out they didn't and if I wanted it before a 5 week waiting period I would have to pay $200 more. FYI 86PhotoVideo said they had it and then back ordered it, as did TechnoDigitial.
Although it is going to be about $100 more then the original price, hopefully Amazon will come through.

I've never had an issue with an order where amazon themselves were providing the fulfillment. I've order tens of thousands of dollars of electronics over the years. If you opted for the free shipping, it'll ship within a day or 2, otherwise it'll ship that same day if credit approval was successful.

There's a reason why amazon is still the #1 online merchant of electronics and related paraphernalia. They've been around since before, or right around the big .com boom, 11 or more years ago.

I opted for the free shipping, I am not in that big of a hurry. Anyway today was an ordering parts day, needed another rear tire, new brake pads, and oil.

Which pads did you go with this time? @ how many miles?

When I did the tires at 8900, the pads looked thinner, but still had some good life left - at least 3-5K. I went with ferodo's per one of the forums recommendations. The new pads look only slightly thicker than what's on the bike, so I may yet have some time left.

Another set of pr2's too?

I went with EBC sintered FA4174HH for the front and FA254HH for the rear. I have 18k on the bike and the pads are gone. But many of the miles are just breezing down the road.

Well we will see what Amazon does. If they come through fine. But I am not getting my hopes up. I may have to make special arrangements.

No, I checked earlier today and they had not shipped it yet. I think I am hosed. I have a order# and I checked "Where's my stuff" and they don't seem to know.

If the option to cancel the order is no longer there (only view order) then it's gone to the warehouse for fulfillment. If you can still cancel the order then you're probably right about being hosed

I just checked and it looks like I can cancel the order. This is bullshit. If the assholes don't have it, they shouldn't say it is in stock.

Hmm... Odd. You ordered on monday right. It really should of shipped by now. I'm sorry you're having such a hassle.

You can call 800-201-7575 for amazon customer service to see what the deal is.

Most products i've ordered with the free shipping have shipped within 1-3 business days of ordering.

Ted, I ordered mine from Beach Camera... I called up on their tool free line and verified that they actually had the unit. There was a an attempt to sell me additional stuff, but the guy wasn't pushy and fulfilled the order quickly. You might give them a try.

I may have to. Amazon looks like it is failing. The worst part is the other guys at least sent me an email saying that the item was back ordered. Amazon is just letting is fly. Could be the last attempt at ever doing buisness with them again.
Thanks

Ted, really sorry to hear about your experience with them. It does sound like they don't have the product otherwise it would of shipped by now.

I've bought many thousands of dollars worth of electronics from them over the years and have had a very favorable experience. It sounds like this gps is in super hot demand right now. Don't let this one experience blemish amazon. I do still think they're one of the better online retailers.

When you placed your order (or if you look it up now), it should state what the estimated ship date was or is. Has it already passed that date?

I just got a phone call from UPS about a delivery from Amazon.com. Looks like it is here. I guess they wanted it to be a surprise.
