Note that the free shipping will take as long as 10 days.

I don't even get why they would stop the free shipping for the Holiday. I missed out on the free shipping last night. Well, I tried but I must have forgot to hit the final button checkout button on paypal.

Now I am not going to get the player until the free shipping is back in place or I will just go elsewhere for the nextflix streaming. I was upgrading to the better player because of the free shipping.

My fault that I missed it, and am not blaming Roku

The free shipping is too slow, if you used the free shipping now it most likely wouldn't be there before Christmas anyway.

It looks like they offer many more shipping choices than when I originally bought. As I said, I was charged $20 and I think that was the only option back then. Now there is:

Saver: $3.99 (this looks to be the same as the free)
Fed Ex Ground : $9.99
Fed Ex 2 Day: $14.99
Fed Ex Overnight: $29.99

Their website says that the Saver shipping likely won't arrive by x-mas, "Due to heavy holiday shipping traffic, your order is very unlikely to arrive before December 25, 2009 with this shipping option. If you need it to arrive earlier, please select another option."

My free shipping (I assume Saver) took 7 days from order to door for me. I'm in L.A. area.

Cost for shipping?

Thu Dec 10, 2009 6:48 pm

I ordered mine on Monday Dec. 07 and paid $3.99 to ship to New Jersey. They predicted 8-12 days. According to FEDEX it left the Sacramento FEDEX facility Wednesday evening Dec. 09 with an estimated delivery date of Dec. 18 which would be the twelfth day from Dec. 07. It shouldn't take that long unless it's traveling by stagecoach. I'm guessing that it reaches New Jersey on Saturday and will at my door on Monday Dec. 14th which would be the eighth day. I will keep you posted.

You are not getting FedEx all the way. They use FedEx SmartPost for low shipping. FedEx delievers it to some USPS center and then it comes USPS the rest of the way. How and where they decide to stop FedEx and start USPS, I do not know. But I can tell you just because it says FedEx, no not expect quick shipping (at the low price).
