Yeah, I ordered all over the place during the week and my stuff is in various stages of shipping.

MDUSA stuff (bars, belt) - ordered 11/25, shipped 11/27, arrived 12/2
Spun Performance (compression stuff) - ordered 12/1, shipped 12/1 (!), supposed to arrive today (12/4)
Elite FTS (AdiPowers) - ordered 12/1, haven't gotten shipping confirmation yet. Not terribly worried.
Rogue (bar lock, misc stuff) - ordered 12/3, shipped 12/4

Re: Black Friday

Went and checked, EliteFTS is the only one that did send a shipping notification. Should be here Friday. Yippee.

Re: Black Friday

I got home today (Wednesday) and had two kettlebells waiting for me courtesy of MDUSA. Ordered them Sunday night. Outstanding turn around.

Re: Black Friday

X training was pretty quick on everything. Took about 3 days after I ordered to arrive. 2 shipments are coming in from R&L carriers. X training's arrived yesterday on a pallet the guy was very cool he broke the pallet down and stacked the weights in my garage. My pendlay rack and some other items from MDUSA were gonna arrive today but my wife has nowhere to put it. Luckily I redeploy back to the states in 3 days and she called and asked if they could deliver at a later date and they had no problem waiting till the 10th which is perfect for me.

Re: Black Friday

Well I just got off the phone with Elitefts, and it looks like there is some huge bad news for everyone. I was informed that yesterday they were told by Adidas that they cannot fill their orders of Adipowers. They apparently will be emailing everyone that bought the shoes with refunds.

I am extremely upset, since I sold my Reebok crossfit lifters as soon as I purchased those, for much less than they cost me of course. Not to mention the fact that we have all just missed out on any other black Friday deals for Weightlifting shoes that their might have been.

I have no idea how a company can advertise such a great black Friday deal that everyone jumped on, onlyto to later be completely be unable to fill any of their orders.

Now I guess I'll have to figure out a way to stretch my budget for some new lifting shoes, since I don't have a pair anymore.

Re: Black Friday

Edited to say I can understand from the vendor perspective of being in a tough spot

Obviously you can tell I'm livid
Honestly it sounds like a vendor relations problem if that's the case Andrew. (Playing devils advocate here) Adidas put their foot down and said "No" to what elitefts.com. If Adidas was holding the inventory and did drop shipping, then it's entirely possible.
