DS is well known for "slow boat" shipping. I ordered something...can't even remember what it is now, but that was at least a week ago. To answer your question, no. I have no problem with it, because I know not to order anything from there that I need anytime soon.

I think they drop ship from China.

There are very few deal sites that I expect quick shipping.....16 days is less than some orders I have placed. I like to use PayPal and if something is taking too long, I open a case (this seems to quicken the pace).

In this case the shipped from Chino, CA

It's not really the shipping, it's the handling. Some sites take forever to process an order, but lock you in first when you purchase the item :::(cough)gearxs(cough):::.

I bought something from them once...................once

TL;DR: No, 16 days isn't too long from a daily deal site. If you needed or wanted it fast then you would have gone with Newegg or Amazon and paid extra for expedited processing.

I've purchased a few items from Daily Steals and all but one had no problems at all; with the exception of that item (lost by the US Postal Service and thus not DailySteal's fault), I do not recall especially slow delivery with any order from them.

Note however that I don't consider 16 days from order to delivery to be even close to a problem when dealing with most of the cheap daily deal sites. Usually items come in much faster than that, but I've also had items take more than double that time.

As @jsimsace points out above, there is the "order processing time" (ie. time "without any scans") and the actual shipping time. In this case, it sounds like the shipper got the item on 5/31 or 6/1. Since 5/25 through 5/28 (four days) is a holiday weekend, I'd say the timing is quite acceptable and reasonable.

@mkentosh I have used them several times but this time it was something I needed vs wanted. I won't be buying anything else.

yes, they are very slow in shipping matters and the delivery is not consistent. sometimes it takes 2 weeks but from my order history, most of them took 3 weeks to a month. sometimes drop shipped from China, sometimes from westcoast sometimes east coast. i guess they are using drop shippers all around the world.

I can assure everyone with the highest level of confidence that I will NEVER purchase from Daily Steals again...EVER..!!!!
