So I'm in Hawaii and the nearest gamefly center is in LA. My last two games have taken a solid week (7-8 days) between when I mail it out and when I get a new one. How does this stack up to everyone else?
It usually takes between 4-6 days from when I mail one back. I live in Mississippi, and most of my games come from Florida. Sometimes I'll get an email saying the game I am getting wasn't available at my closest warehouse and they have to ship it from another one. That adds another day or two to the process. I don't sweat it though, I am so far behind on playing the games that I own, that I need the extra days sometimes.
Worth checking out Gamerang, same kind of service, I believe same price too. I initially tried Gamefly and was disappointed with the turnaround time. Luckily for me, living in the Twin Cities, Gamerang has a distribution center in the cities so 1-2 days at the max.
Mine varied by certain titles, but it usually took about 1-3 days. I do live in Pittsburgh and that's where their biggest east coast distribution center is located. Sometimes it did take longer and I remember being very disappointed especially because NetFlix usually takes like a day.
