So round 3 is being sent, but not all of round 3? I’m 1444 and waiting for PM. I think you said earlier up to low 1400’s.

I just got my GT purchase code however I was intending to have this one delivered to a friend as a gift.
I seem to remember there being problems if the delivery address did not match the paypal account address, is this still the case, or is ordering but having delivery to a different address to my paypal address ok ?

I’m sure I won’t be the first or last to ask, but once orders are placed, how long can one expect to wait for the light to arrive? Will a tracking number be provided?

The lights are all in stock with lumintop this time around. So it will just be a matter of sorting out the orders, packing and shipping them. I figure about ~2 weeks for them to leave lumintop.

Then it will depend on your location. Locations that will get DHL shipping it should arrive within a week of it shipping. Areas that will need to use registered mail will take longer obviously.

Excellent, thank you for the quick reply! I’m in the Midwestern US so I’ll count on about 3 weeks or so.

Yes, that sounds about right. Scott picked the final number based on what was easiest to work out with the links and passwords.

I knew it would show up when I was asleep! All ordered and only $217. Thanks Ace, Jason and teacher for being so active since I started following this, it has provided me a good amount of entertainment. And back to just reading everything.

That is a good question. Basically the GT will ship to whatever address is on the paypal payment. So make sure that is set to wherever you want it to go.

Any changes to the order after it is placed will incur a $5 fee.

Thanks TA, just checking as the delivery address is in a different country to mine so if it came to me it would be to expensive for me to ship it on to my friend really.

It seems that one of the links/passwords did not go out in the PM correctly, strange since it worked in the test PM.

For those that can not see the link or password contact Myself or M4DM4X and we will get a link sent to you.

Sadly it appears that way. It had to cutoff somewhere. The next batch should get all remaining orders.

What about the bags, caps, batteries and short tubes? Are those running out or will they be available to order in the next batch as well?

I am pretty sure they will make more if they sell out.

Could somebody on the team define “part east europe” ?
What countries should pay the 20$ extra fee?
I hope they do not send with DHL in there, customs and extra dhl taxes are as high as the light itself
Thank you

I’m living in France and prefer registered mail. Is there a way to have this instead of DHL ?
I’m fine with the real value on the box(es).

Great! I was just about to announce this. The PM’s have now officially been sent!

I actually just got done distributing the donations from the first rounds last week to the 10 team members. We collected a total of $875 in donations from members. I think I forgot to post about this last week it was so hectic.

On behalf of the whole team, thanks for the donations. They mean a lot. Smile

i think only numbers #1050 to #1450. are getting sent out first ?
i am hoping to get it soon as i am getting this for a purpose rather then shining it at a vacant building a block or two away, looking forward to it.


So, you’ve made me curious, what’s your intended use for the GT?

I am very happy to announce that I, #1166 received my PM and made my payment for my GT. 

The PM was professional and the directions were clear.  The transaction went flawlessly. 

Neil followed up with a nice email and everything went through very smoothly. 

Thanks to the GT Team who made this all possible

Does anyone know what the expected shipping time to USA is?

 

To those who have been less than courteous and suspicious about Neil and the team, try to remain on the high road and give the benefit of the doubt as you would want others give to you. 

 

~ Peace, and may the Giga Thrower light your path ~
