My inferno skelly still backordered with no update. Of course, live chat with HD was no help. They probably really don't know anything, who knows.
Thats super weird. It did the initial ping for me at the end of june, then it dropped off. radio silence since,No I haven't. It still says it's backordered. I got a confirmation email when I made the backorder, but it hasn't confirmed the order is in stock or will be shipped. I'm just thinking there will be more shipments of it in the coming few weeks, and those with backorders currently will hopefully get them fulfilled at some point
I also got a notification that the hearse has shipped (was scheduled to ship in August). It says it's shipping with XPO Last Mile (which is apparently for heavy goods?) and the tracking info doesn't work, so unclear when I will actually get it. I'm not sure if I'll keep it or not, so it will be interesting to see how large the box is.I just got an email from HD that said the hearse with pony that I ordered last Thursday with an estimated delivery date of 8/26 has just shipped. So excited since I have been searching for one since last Halloween, however the arrival date now is 8/23-8/26. Where could it be coming from that would take that long? But the good news is, the items are starting to be shipped at least. Tracking will start in a day or two so will find out where it's coming from then.
I would wait until tomorrow morning. I notice a lot of stuff ships overnight. If nothing then it may be a good idea to cancel and reorder.So, my inferno scarecrow still shows as back ordered, but if I go to the website I can order it for delivery on August 2.
I wonder if I should cancel my original order and place a new one?
so do we think im wasting my time waiting for my 12 foot pumpkin skelly to come out of backorder? Will HD put it back on the site when they get inventory insted of shiping it to people that already ordered? I guessI will keep an eye out on the site or hopefully be able to get one in the store when they start to stock. UghWell, I called HD. They can't take my order off backorder. The only way to get one on August 2 is to place a NEW order and cancel my existing order.
I won't lie, I kinda feel like an idiot for trying to order it when it was first available. I thought that I would get my order sooner, I didn't think it marked me as a chump they can string along for 30 days while new customers get product immediately. HD person said they can't see anything about how far back I am in line for shipping, but if I placed an order now they will ship right away.
It doesn't make me want to spend money there on prop building supplies, I hate feeling like I've been used just because I tried to play by the rules. I can't win with buying props. Order early and they sit on the order. Don't order early and you might miss out when they are out of stock. Order for full price and then you learn 700 people got one for 75% off.
Sorry to be a wet blanket, I just really feel stupid for refreshing that site so often last week only to see this happen.
