I was killing a few minutes at work before a meeting this morning and must have really lucked out. They must have just opened the site up for business (this was around 9:15 ET) because I didn't encounter any glitches, slow transfers, or congestion whatsoever. I was able to get in, get out, and get what I wanted (Indy Kermit) with no problems whatsoever. Then again, I was hoping to go back and browse around, but the site was down by the time I got home from work. You'd think Hasbro was the group behind this, what with the underestimating demand and all.
One thing I was curious about was the shipping rates and what shipper they will use. I was charged 4.95 for the Kermit to be shipped, and in my confirmation email it said I would be sent a tracking number once it went out. But, like an idiot, I forgot to see who would be shipping it. If it is USPS, I'm really worried, since they've already lost my power bill this week...please let it be UPS, let it be UPS.
