    If you ordered yours before the discount ended, its fine. That's the point of a temporary discount, anyone who ordered in that timeframe is golden. [​IMG]

    it will only affect you if you left the item in the shopping basket and didn't complete the purchase of your order. If completed it BEFORE the price went up you won't have to pay extra or anything and your discounted price will be what you paid for it. Correct me if I'm wrong, that's how most shops operate (ie. the price you see is the price you pay, except when it's an error on their part)

    Honestly this is weird to me. It was 30. Which i understand was the initial discount.

    Then it was 37

    now it's 40.

    What if I placed it in the cart when it was $29.95 and it is still there? I can go all the way to paypal and the price doesnt change. Will I still get it at $29.95 or will I have to pay more?

    Will we have to pay more later though or will shoptemp honor the price paid? That is my question.

    If you added it to your cart pre-price change, you'll still have that price. So that's all you'll ned to pay. [​IMG]

    What if I have it added to my cart as 29.95 and plan to purchase it in one month time from now. Maybe even buy 10 of them. Would that still be considered?

    No idea, I doubt they've had enough time to test that. But I doubt it, it likely expires after a period of time. I think the ability to keep something in your cart for a little while is just there way making sure you don't lose your order if you have to step away.

    This whole ShopTemp thing just gets worst and worst. Let's hope their isn't another "price adjustment" or "complaints from other retailers" that cause the price of this thing to go up even more on this site.

    Why not wait to see what other stores will be seling this for before bashing ShopTemp? It's not going to go any higher than it is right now; if you didn't take advantage of the pre-order price, then you should've been paying more attention to the community.

    Wow...so because I was WORKING—you know what that is?—and wasn't able to listen to the tempcast, I'm now being told to "pay more attention to the community." [​IMG]

    Not to mention the whole email—that I assume went out to everyone—that said the discounted price was going to be offered, but pre-orders haven't started yet. Now, usually when something like that is said, they don't start the pre-orders mere hours after it's sent out, or if a website does do so, they at least have the courtesy to send out another email stating that they are doing so. You guys can make up all the excuses you want, but this whole grand opening for the shop and pre-orders for the supercard was handled in a very unprofessional way. Not exactly what you want when endorsing a new partnership in which you are trying to get your userbase to go to for their services.
