I wish I would have seen this thread before ordering my phone this morning.

Yesterday I won an invite through the Storm Of Invites thing and this morning I redeemed it and ordered the 64GB version. I opted for Express for the extra $5 thinking it would be nice to have it a little sooner. However, if I would have known "Standard" was USPS and "Express" was UPS ground I would have saved the $5 and got it 2-3 days sooner since USPS is always much quicker in my area.

Kind of peeved that I spent an extra $5 to receive the phone later but that's neither here nor there at this point. I'm just happy I got an invite allowing me to save ~$300 by not buying the G3 while still getting the same/similar hardware. I all but gave up on this phone and was just patiently waiting on the release of the G3 on T-Mobile until I got the email from OnePlus yesterday.

Same here. On all points lol. Oh well, at least the UPS guy knocks on the door instead of leaving it outside like USPS does.

I think you guys will get faster shipping.

My "express" shipping was actually $1 cheaper than standard so they may have finally fixed it!

How much did they charge you for shipping? You're talking about shipping in US right?
