NEVER wait for the emails, if you want the good stuff. That should be a given.

Oy! We know not to wait for the emails. I know good things come up at midnight. I know midnight is the magical moment. If I miss something because I didn't check at midnight, it's my bad.

But getting an email at 2:50 pm the next day about that item, already long gone, does seem a bit sadistic. They may as well send an email saying "Ha, ha, look what you can't buy!"

Nice thing about digital printing is that it allows us to offer all (well most) of our designs all the time. This was something wooters had been begging for.



It makes a little more sense, but does that mean that all sizes come as a whole or that less-purchased sizes will not get the quality boost (I still highly prefer screen prints) unless they also reach a certain number? I genuinely hope it's the former, otherwise I feel I'm being 'punished' for choosing Men's Small over Men's Medium in these cases. :<

The only one who has an answer to this is the production manager. They've done stranger things before; one l/s I have sold 8, but was screened, yet another shirt bought off the reckoning was DTG. Didn't have any qualms about that one (beyond the blank) - it was 1 color. How badly could they mess that up? ...

Like Narf said, it's up to the production manager. But once the machine is set up for the inks, I would think they would run all sizes (two screen sizes) unless there was just a really small number in one screen size.

Only two screen sizes total. Aha. Gotcha.

Well alright then. :3 I guess I'm just one of the odd ones who would rather not have the shirt than get digital printing. :P

I specifically wait for the side sales for shirts I'm trying to upgrade to smalls rather than hit the side catalog because of my preference. So while I understand it, I guess I would rather not have it produced than end up with something I'm unhappy with. Heh.

(When you guys eventually have a fox-specific side sale, I hope you'll at least make sure everything's screened. ;3 Also, reprint on gitd lw Vulpa hoodie. I like it and need a spare. Armpit already has a hole, lol.)

This. My point was not about 'missing' the item, it was about drafting an email for a sale item that is in fact, no longer for sale. Someone wrote it up, another someone approved it, and out it went, listing an item that wasn't for sale and hadn't been for sale for several HOURS prior to the time it was sent. There was plenty of time to edit the email so that it was accurate.

Emails are a bit pointless if they don't actually provide the option to purchase the item advertised. Since this seems to be an ongoing problem with woot, I'll be changing my preferences to no longer get them.

My speech is not parsing. I am speaking in ellipsis.

What's going on here?

Is it just for the shipping dates?

Anyone else's tracking say that it's delivered even though it isn't? ...mine says it was delivered on the 3rd but it most definitely wasn't

I'm sorry for the trouble. Have you emailed support@woot.com yet? If not, please send them a message with your order number and user name.

UPDATE: I didn't think about it earlier, but I bet you got a recycled number? I can't verify that one way or another, but it's just a thought.

Mine still says shipping now. I was going to give them until tomorrow before I started asking about it. I then noticed that most of the rest of the Wil Wheaton Sale says that they'll ship on 12/11. So thought the Mystery Box might ship then too.

Now I'm wondering again...

I think 12/11 is correct, but I'm checking to be sure.

UDPATE: Confirmed, 12/11 for shipping.

Mine says shipped and delivered.
But I did not receive anything yet either. I submitted a note to Support last week, but have not heard anything back from them! No note or email saying it will ship, etc.
Not happy!

It looks like the tracking you received was for the other items in your order. It's likely the item from this sale will ship on 12/11 or thereabouts. When it's shipped, you'll get another tracking number for that package.

I managed to get in for three and am now way too excited for tracking numbers.

I really shouldn't be this excited, it might be a let down, I just can't help myself.

I also got the email asking for a size. It almost looked like spam, didn't say Woot in the sender name or subject. If you're searching for an email to respond to, mine came from Joel Lewis.

Does 'Track by Reference' using your order number pull up any info?

I got an email at 3 am Monday morning saying my package has shipped, but no record of shipping yet. I tracked by reference number and nothing shows up.

I haven't gotten any tracking info, nor does STUFF YOU BOUGHT show any tracking info. Track By Reference is coming back not found too.
