Glad you got that part sorted at least.
Yeah, I understand. I just wanted to see what would happen if you tried to simulate a transaction.
Can anyone that’s purchased anything since the Black Friday sale began confirm the following for me? Are rewards points not earned when purchasing sales items? I’ve bought 4 things since Wednesday night. Usually, for an item that’s in-stock, the rewards points are instant. This made me assume that it wasn’t a manual process. I see everything in my stash. This is the first year in which I’ve really tried to take advantage since their previous Black Fridays have been somewhat underwhelming, so maybe I’m missing something or there’s a FAQ that I’ve failed to read.
It's automatic rewards instead of rewards points, that's where some of the discounted prices are coming from. Basically the points you would earn on the purchases are being applied to the purchase itself (and then some in the case of some of the better discounts). When it's not a Black Friday sale the points to get added to your account automatically, but in the case of this sale they're applied to the purchase itself.
I figured that was the case with the stuff labeled “Instant Rewards,” but some of the sales items I’ve purchased don’t say that, so I wasn’t sure if those would earn additional points like normal.
Just got charged for the Stunticon's trailer(youth version).
Also bought all 3 of Fans Hobby Monsterbots for $99.99 each. Been wanting them for a while. That's it for my black friday shopping.
Lol they responded with a message saying skywings weight was wrong and now fixed. Didn't say anything about stealthwing. I know for a fact it does not cost $55 to ship usps from AZ to KY and vice versa. I've shipped tons of boxes that are just as big and heavy as what skywing is to Calif and it never cost more than $30. And California has an upcharge from my state. This is a $20 max ship. I'll be waiting until after Christmas to ship and will add either tfc toy if they have any in stock or some gi joe classified infantry to put stash over 150.
Pretty certain the boxes are identical dimensions. It's been a while since I saw both together though.
they are...but when I add Stealthwing to ship it's $55 USPS. But Skywing was $17.96, now $21.65. But Stealthwing is still $55. LOL
thanks again! they gave me the difference in store credit since the order was made within 14 days prior of the sale. I'm loving their customer service so much!
You get a more a human answer from them. That’s part of why I shop with them the majority of the time.
Wondering if I should do the same with my Maverick and Buster Stealthwing that I just ordered before the sale started
Is TCP sending out fake arrival notifications? I got one for FT Huffer and MP-53.
FT Huffer says arriving 1Q 2022 now but MP-53 says Arriving Soon on their description.
Their notification system sometimes sends out false alarms. I know that Skids and Boost were both pushed back to July 2022 on BBTS, yet TCP and TFSource both say December of this year. I'm not sure who to believe at this point, but I'll most likely have an answer once TCP sends me a PayPal invoice. That's usually the indicator that something is pretty close to being in-stock.
Well.. BBTS stock arriving 7 months after other US retailers is not without precedent.
I'm aware of the waiting games with BBTS preorders, the tendency for stuff to get pushed back, and the ongoing pandemic affecting everything on the shipping and supply side, but it's still hard for me to believe that BBTS, a retailer that's been around for as long as it has (20+ years), would get stock so much later than a much younger competitor like TCP. And this has been a thing well before the pandemic if the BBTS thread is any indication.
Chosen Prime has excellent customer service! Messaged them asking if a price adjustment was possible since I ordered Maverick and Buster Stealthwing a few days prior to the black friday sale. Wasn't really expecting anything since I made the purchases knowing what the prices were, but they refunded me the difference of the sale prices as store credit. Gotta love that level of customer service
Yeah, got ones for FT Huffer, Skids, and Reboost. Then even an “in stock” notice for Huffer.
I don’t buy it, though. Probably just another TCP preorder-system error.
So sad to see so many of my pre-orders get bumped to December release...
Maybe this will be the month some of my stuff comes in....damn dock issues....
I'm going to try the same with Robot Paradise Airwolf. My preorder came in within a week of the Black Friday sale. I paid the original price, but it was marked down to $74.99. Wasn't expecting it to be on sale on account of it being such a new release.
