Hey,

Quick, here's the deal...our CEO is on a flight for the next 5 hours and the team at Bucky HQ is taking over the site 'til he lands. We're all aware and grateful of all the support you've given us, and it's time to get in touch with our rebellious streak. Before his plane lands, we're marking down ALL products sitewide to thank you.

From 1-6 pm (EST) today, everything at http://www.getbuckyballs.com is just $5!

Mine took a couple of days to start working. Finally worked on tues and it said I'd get the package saturday. Today the package made it to my local post office and they always deliver the day after getting a package so I'm expecting it tomorrow.

Not directed at anyone in particular, but I've got to say, in all my time reading SD forums, I've never come across such a high number of people complaining and poo-pooing a vendor.

From the very onset of the sale, when their website was crashing for hours, to receiving 10's of thousands of orders in a span of 10 hours, you'd think people would realize this company was unprepared for the popularity of their products.

Almost immediately the negative posts began... they charged my card without shipping... they better ship or else... I've gotten no order confirmation, I'm going to dispute the charges...

Realize that this company probably only has a handful of employees, and that with a tsunami of orders, it will take time to process them. That's the nature of SDing...

Received the package from FedEx earlier today. It was waiting for me when I got home.

Although out of the 5 of the 125 balls I ordered, one package is the wrong color. I got the original metallic one that has orange lettering on the bottom instead of actual orange buckyballs.

I'm slightly disappointed by the profiteering they appear to be doing on shipping. My order would've easily fit in a small Priority Mail flat-rate box, would've cost them all of $5.15 to ship, so they charged $5.95 instead, and are shipping it via constipated sloth.
Agreed, flat rate priority would have done so much better for them, customer service wise on these orders. The items DO FIT, so they could easily ship in the priority boxes.

Tracking still does not work. If they really shipped it from MA it should at least be here in NY by tomorrow.

Hi,

We had a small glitch with Google Checkout but did get your order and will ship it out by the end of this week.

Thanks,

Reid
I ordered on the 20th. Though, I'm not really too upset. Not in a big hurt to get them. Only thing I had an issue with is charging me before shipping but as long as I get them. Not like they're they only place that has done that.
