It’s your choice if you want to use your own FB account, or hint hint… and they also accept Paypal.

Not sure if you want to trust the site. Whois information shows that it has been registered since 2004….

Cnqualitygoods does that to me sometimes, the order goes through but I get an error code instead of an order number

I’m glad I’m not the only flashlight collector out there, I was beginning to think I was strange.

Due to the unexpected overwhelming demand, we are temporarily taking this promotion offline so that current orders can be fulfilled promptly.

Once that is done, we will bring this promotion back again. Please stay tuned.

If your place order wasn’t showing up in your account, check again now and it should be there.

Thank you for your understanding.

Looks like a great coat light or gift for the nephew, guess I’ll check in later

We’ve been running that promotion for two weeks now but on Friday afternoon literally thousands of orders rushed in, over a three-hour timeframe. That took us off guard and caused some problems in the orders database. We did a stress test before going live, but that was about half the scale of what happened on Friday.

As soon as we were alerted, we restored all orders that caught errors. The lights are going to be shipped today and tomorrow as well. A few persons were really upset about the ordering errors, but the good thing that came out is that our systems are now tested for even bigger promos :).

The $1.70 e-mail was sent because we were worried people didn’t read the shipping methods during checkout. Some people on SD say they expect standard airmail orders to deliver in 10 days. That’s almost impossible during the holiday season.

At $1.70, minus $0.30+ charged by PayPal, we actually lose on each upgrade. So it’s entire an act of good faith. Smile
