Ordered 2 on 11/16 and they shipped yesterday. They are doing much better and their receivers are fantastic. Well worth the wait. I am just glad we have them as an option for receivers.

I am in the process of ordering and seems like the website has changed since the last time I ordered anything..

& I am at the point of completing the order & i haven't seen any "coupon code box" on the site anywhere yet..

maybe i clicked passed it..

Worked for me on the two blanks that I ordered on December 1st. If you go to your cart there should be an option to select "Use coupon code" which will open up the text box to enter it.

yep more options = more wait time apparently

gone are the days when you could order a couple 80% blanks & they would be in your mailbox by the end of the same week.

I am sure the quality will be worth the wait tho.
