....................and worse....you have "actors" :eek3::noes::noes::noes::noes:
well i called and they said they are all being cancelled because the code was supposed to be 20% off not 20$. So they are now offering 20% and free ground shipping. I was excited really hoping to get this, but oh well
I don't buy the argument... it only applies to necessities of life... for example, if we were all stranded on a deserted island.. then yes, everyone should get together and figure out a way to share equally.. but the sharing equally in regular life, ie.. paychecks, freebies, etc. is a liberal, socialist mindset that I don't subscribe to. I believe that greater effort, checking the freebie sites more often equals greater reward.. working harder equals greater rewards, etc.. so.. as far as the freebies go... you snooze, you lose .Nothing personal. I didn't get in on this one either.. and.. as it turns out, it seems like the orders were cancelled anyway.. sorry to those that placed orders.
After reading this thread, I figured I'd find a cancellation email. Nope. I have a "shipped" email. I even have the tracking number. I ordered last night right when it was first posted here so maybe I got through before they figured it out.
The amazing thing is I really really needed a new wallet. Thanks again for posting. So sorry to those who got canceled.
i snooze a lot :uh::rofl:
i had the same experience from another promo code. I think it will be hard for them to cancel the order because you already paid $3 - there might be some extra procedures they need to do.. congrats! great deal
This is why I should have bought the tote for my girlfriend since I would have actually had to pay something OOP. Eh, no harm no foul.
Funny, a big company like that sent out an email with the subject line "Cancelled order". You would think they would know how to spell canceled correctly.
I figured nobody would be receiving anything unless they paid OP for an item. It did not sit well with me when my order total came up -$1.05
cancelled is the British spelling.. i almost always use double l when spelling similar words.. i actually argued with a teacher when i was in high school. she had to change the answer key.
my dictionary is also MW (good one)
Thanks for the info. It's great to learn something everyday... and your info. accomplished that for me!
I have always spelled "cancelled" with 2 L's. That's how i was taught to spell it when i was in grade school in WV.
Me too, and I went to school in Cali. The auto spell check on my computer recognizes both spellings though
I agree, and actually, i feel that this site is very considerate of one another:hug:..many times members have offered their coupons and even their time to sign up for freebies and offers for fellow free stuff times members, when others are unable to do so..:h5:.yet, obviously winning a contest or being first in line to get in on a deal is only relevant to those able to get in on the offer while it is available...while feeling 'sad' about missing out is understandable, those savvy enough to have gotten the deal should be congratulated...it may be someone else's turn next time:fingersx:
very well said and realistic :bigthumb:
