    Yep. Got a e-mail this morning saying they're gonna have free shipping again. Same as last time I think. Buy at least one item from their holiday sale and pay with their paypal billing agreement and anything else you purchase will get free shipping. Starts 12 Noon Monday 7th to 6PM Friday 11th (japan time).

    I hope theres actually stuff I want in their sale this time...

    Yup, they must be desperate. This year was the first year ever they made those huge sales [SOC stuff, Macross stuff, stuff assorted by companies, saint seiya stuff and so on] on a nearly weekly basis, then the first free shipping offer, then two almost consecutive ones and now this.

    Though it hurts my wallet more than helps it, because like most people, I get greedy and buy EVERYTHING I wanted.

    I want HLJ to update their checkout and inventory programs. Shouldn't have to wait so long for someone to check if they have inventory or not... Amiami and Hobby Search seem to be doing good in that respect.

    Unless they put a shitload of stuff I'm missing in their new holiday sale, I can't imagine why I would want to place an order with HLJ at all this month. Not when it took forever for what were supposed to be EMS orders to ship the first time they tried the PayPal Billing Agreement promotion, and others (not me) suffering the same way with the Black Friday sale too.

    With the amount of people that took part in these deals I'm not surprised they had to slow down.

    in the last couple sales, did the free shipping end up applying to items that someone had already ordered, but hadn't paid for yet?

    I've got to admit, there's some neat items in the sale this time around. Kamen Rider has no representation whatsoever that I noticed, but at least Encore Skywarp/Thundercracker isn't the most affordable sci-fi figure this time either.

    I haven't had any trouble at all with HLJ, and I'm a pretty regular customer, sale or not. I just got my Motion Revives from their Kamen Rider sale. Two weeks, SAL shipping. Everything else I've ordered has been free shipping sale orders, and I've gotten them in less than 5 days every time. The first package had an expected deliver time of 5 days, but it got here in 3!

    It will probably be a while. They're not that fast, especially on those sales.

    Even the very first PayPal Billing Agreement sale? Then you're in a very small group of people indeed. Everyone else here, and just about everyone on HJU, waited around for about as long as a SAL shipment, if not more, for their "free EMS" order.

    The first sale IIRC required you to wait till the sale ended before they charged yor account then it was a waiting game waiting for them to ship.

    I didn't order from the first sale, but I did email them about a long turnaround time for one package I had ordered as a gift a while back. I think a lot of the confusion was from the move to their new warehouse.

    And speaking of fast shipping, I just got my order from their last sale (with the 25% off anything in your order) and it's a day early.

    I'm just saying, I've been a happy customer of theirs for years. I've never had a problem, and I've really been taking advantage of these sales. Thanks to the last sale, I have most of my toy purchases for the rest of the year preordered, and I'll be getting 25% off on them when they come in.

    Also, the Chojinki Metalder sold out.

    This sale has a lot of tempting stuff, but I have NO MONEY right now. Between Christmas shopping and my own stuff, and just getting things ready for the holidays... I'm out. I would have picked up that Metalder though, if I could have worked it into my December preorders to get free shipping.
