Do you think cancelling a delayed bundle package game could work?

I too am quite happy to skip the forza game to save the cash... 🤔

Well, in my case, the order statuses clearly show two different shipments for the one order, one being the Forza game title. Since the console and tomb raider games are "Dispatching now" but the Forza game is "not yet dispatched" I feel quite confident that I could cancel it without any issue if I so chose.

What are you seeing in your order breakdown?

Mine was the minecraft / forza combo also, and I'm showing the same split.

Will review once the console has actually changed to dispatched...

Mind you its only £15 which is about $30 ish

Trademe shows this game at around $85 min new, so not a bad deal anyway.

Wonder if I could trade it somewhere, for just cause 3 or that new Star Wars game that came out lol

Console and tomb raider game were dispatched this morning. Forza status still unchanged. I'm certain I could cancel it now but I'm keen for a good racing game. I'm sure you could sell yours on Trade Me or even here perhaps for at least $50 in the run up to Christmas. I sell a lot of stuff on local Facebook buy and sell pages but don't expect to get top dollar, everyone on there is looking for thIngs to be virtually given away...

went to cancel forza, has the option, but shows up as cancelling the entire deal.... although the console has shipped... worried if i cancel now they might stop shipment or something.

 

if the console arrives befroe the game ships, i may cancel then.

Forza has now been dispatched also.

Pretty sure the shipping description was 2-4 days, but they refer to Dec 8 as being 'on time' in the communications?...

I see the total value in the checkout as $520nzd with priority shipping. 217 pounds before VAT and then they add import fees 63.38 pounds. What am I missing?

Same for me, shipped overnight last night.

 

2-4 business days - 4 would make it the 8th (Thursday). It'll be tight but I expect it'll be here on time.

Price has increased from GBP$229 to $284 - puts it over the NZD$400 import threshold so Amazon add the import duty by default. All that you missed is the boat I'm afraid... :(

Mine is on it's way, should be here Thursday.

 

Amazon have just refunded my shipping, as it didn't arrive within the 2-4 days!

Did you email them to get a refund? Was it 2-4 calendar days or business days?

My console and tomb raider had their import scan in Auckland today and should be delivered tomorrow according to UPS although Amazon say Thursday. Forza is still awaiting processing by UPS so unlikely to be here by Thursday as Amazon advised.

The Ware house has the 500gb Minecraft bundle for $445 and 10% off tonight only for online orders -$400 at checkout

Not quite as good, but not bad either :)

FIFA console and Tomb Raider arrived today. Outer packaging/shipping box was in absolute bits but thankfully only superficial damage to the Xbox packaging and the contents were fine. I tried my luck with Amazon about the shipping window being missed last evening via live chat but the dude wasn't having a bar of me. Their estimate was the 8th and come back to them if it wasn't with me by then. Absolutely no way that the Forza game will make it by the 8th as it's just arrived in Cologne from France so I'll be hitting them up about that for sure.

Looking forward to trying out the new piece of kit but have to wait until FIFA downloads - all 42GB of it - before I can have a play. Tomb Raider requires an update before it'll let me play and that's queued behind FIFA...

Will make do with some apps for now!
