Anyone actually received anything from Play.com July Warehouse Clearance sale?

There's been dozens of Play.com clearance sale deals, often with most people getting 'Awaiting Stock' next to their order status that were in stock when they bought them. But, if you were lucky enough to have your order put through as 'Posted', have you actually received it yet? I ordered two things a week ago that say 'Posted' and they haven't turned up yet. Is it an extended version of the 'Awaiting Stock' ruse, only we have to wait 21 days for them to refund us?

I ordered 2 CDs early last week (Neil Young, so may not have been a popular choice!), both arrived on Friday

Not quite sure what Play are playing at?

Surely it isn't too difficult these days to tie stock amounts to stock purchased, other retailers seem to manage OK.

I have 2 items in the " awaiting stock " queue.

To clarify, my two items are down as having been posted on the 20th but they were both things that almost instantly shut down for other people with them getting "awaiting stock" when they ordered them in stock.

@Djnino, if they say they've posted it, you've contacted them to tell them it's lost, right?

mine was posted on the 23rd of july

Had a few things

Nope, big scam, just says awaiting stock.



I know you must be disappointed but hardly a scam.

Have you received it yet though? Mine was posted on the 20th of July, and not arrived. I'm concerned about things from the sale that were 'posted' not arriving.

There's no point getting too concerned about it, you can't do anything until it's been three weeks from the date the order was posted. If it's not shown up by then, play will refund you- so you're not going to lose any money, whatever happens.

I ordered 3 of the star wars darth vader arms, all arrived after a few days

I know, but it'd be pretty suspicious if the only things I've had that have gotten 'lost in the post' from Play.com are two things from the sale that hasn't been able to fulfill many in-stock orders. Usually they send things of that value via a courier, but not this time...

No mate it just says awaiting stock! It's obvious they're not awaiting stock because it's a massively popular game that you just don't run out of stock with! I just can't understand it. I would just cancel it but the button to do this isn't there like it usually is! Strange
