Pre-orders were only for the Signature Edition which does not ship out until the end of the month. If he is getting confirmation now it is for a regular 690, not the signature.
UPS Ground is usually a 3 day affair, so I would say if it ships out today, you will get your card on Monday/Tuesday.
I just received my confirmation and I will have my cards on Friday!!!
