3/4 Walmart shipping thread

1 : Anonymous2021/03/08 06:47 ID: m09xbq

My fellow Redditers.... Redditors? Ehem... who were lucky enough to score a PS5 on the most recent Walmart drop on 3/4. I've seen a lot of questions on this subreddit related to what wave you were in, and when you're supposed to get your shiny new fun machine. These are things I would like to know as well, because I haven't had an update yet and I'm so very anxious!

Well I was thinking there should be a dedicated place where people like me can go to view these details. If you purchased a PS5 in the 3/4 drop, and would like to contribute, please reply with the following: what wave you were in (EST for standardization, please), what your initial estimated delivery date was, the new updated date if you have tracking, and what state you're in.

From what I've seen, I don't think it really matters what wave you were in, but I still want to include it for science. Perhaps there's someone out there who can see a pattern to reveal why some of us are getting them now, and some are still waiting. Perhaps someone can tell what factor makes that decision. Even if not, at the very least it will feel good to talk about it.

I've seen that a lot of folks on the East coast have tracking, or have already got their PS5. However, this doesn't seem to be something that's exclusive to the East coast, and certainly not everyone there has tracking yet. Please don't feel obligated to only reply with the requested information, discussion is absolutely encouraged. Thanks in advance for your participation, and I wish all of you the best of luck and a speedy shipment.

I'll share first: I purchased in the first (3:00 PM) wave, have an estimated delivery date of April 13th, don't have any tracking information yet, and I live in Arizona.

Midwest with a later estimate than mine. Guess there goes my theory of East to West (as far as the estimates go). Glad you were able to get one. Congrats! Thanks for the reply.

I got mine at 3:20, still preparing but estimated arrival is still 4/13. I’m from NJ. Good luck to all!

Thanks for sharing! Hang in there mate. I'm in the same boat. This sub, and people like you who share, is keeping me going.

4:40 drop

4/14 no updates yet, no tracking

I'm in Hawaii so I'll probably be one of the last or the very last to get mine if it even comes at all.

ID: gq6sk7v

Oh, man! I can't even relate to this, but if you want to talk I'm here for you. Hawaii sounds like a great place to live, until you need to ship or be shipped something. I never thought about that!

Made the 3:30 wave. Order says it’s still preparing, estimated by 4/14 Edit: I’m in WA

ID: gq6xm77

Same! You in seattle?

ID: gq6xnvo

Thanks for the reply! West coast seems to be all over the place. Have seen some estimated for the 10th though the 14th. Keep up the good fight!

3:00 drop 4/10 Still Says Preparing Order . I’m in Illinois

ID: gq6xrlq

Ordered in the same wave and yours is three days before mine at least. I'm not even mad! Good for you!

I think I was in the 2:40 PST wave, and I got shipping confirmation on the night of 3/7. Originally scheduled as a 4/10 delivery. Was shipped from a warehouse near me in SoCal.

ID: gq6xyc6

Thanks for sharing the news! Congrats on your shipment. Hope it comes before the delivery date for you.

ID: gq77cud

Just curious if it's the one in Lake Forest?

So cal; 4:20 drop; 4/10 delivery hasn’t changed; Ps5 disc. Also, read in another thread at least one person in Los Angeles has already received his. So there’s hope!

ID: gq6z1jq

Wonderful! That's great information to have. So it seems there's more at work here than just the location. Maybe each distribution center needs to stagger their shipments? Either way, congrats on getting one!

4:00. 4/10, OH. No updates.

ID: gq74jbi

Fellow ohioian here. Mine is 4/10 as well.

Hey I work at Wal-Mart DC and they don’t come from us. Their 3rd party. They were coming through the trucks when they first released being already loaded blocked off and everything, but now their coming from another vendor. We still get the controllers and stuff but that’s it. Hope this helps. I’m waiting too. 3 o’clock 1st wave ETA was 4/10, Charlotte, North Carolina. Just got shipping info when I woke up for work for work. 3/10 is now the ETA.

4:00. 4/13 updated to 3/8 Florida

ID: gq6sowi

Thank you for your contribution! Seems Florida folks are getting their tracking pretty quickly. Good for you! What's the first game you're going to play tomorrow when you get it?

3:40, 4/14, SC with no update

15 : Anonymous2021/03/08 10:36 ID: gq74doz

4:30 wave. Estimated shipping date is 4/10. Still have no tracking info. From Ohio. I'm sad af

4:50 EST wave. MA. Still have 4/13 preparing order. I’m so worried that they’re gonna cancel for some reason.

17 : Anonymous2021/03/08 12:03 ID: gq7a0rv

3:40 est wave with a 4/13 arrival in Buffalo, NY.

I can be patient and wait but not knowing if the order is going to get canceled is not fun. I've had two consoles from different retailers cancel on me so far since release and still empty handed.
