Great deal. Hope others have better luck than me. 2 minutes after placing my order for a game that was "in stock", I got an email saying my item was out of stock and wouldnt be restocked.

Are you referring to the Lords of Waterdeep debacle? Or did this just happen AGAIN?

Debacle for whom? Mine just came in the mail today after paying the insane accidental price. I really hope they are still in business after the holidays, I'm starting to feel really bad for them at this point.

I also received my Calendars.com order with no problems.

Will this credit work in their Go! Calendars and Games retail stores as well? Because those stores ALWAYS move everything to 50% off the day after Christmas. Couple that with this Living Social coupon, and you have a stellar deal.

EDIT: Never mind. Orders must be placed by 12/12. But it was worth a shot. Do keep in mind though that Calendars.com retail stores will go to half off after Christmas automatically anyway (not sure about the site). You just risk the selection being a bit thinner.

Happened again. Check the thread for mansions of madness and game of thrones that's near the top. I ordered just 2 hours after it was posted and just had it cancelled 8 days after placing the order.

As I pointed out in the LoWD thread, this seems to be a business practice of Calendars.com.

It's possible they are completely inept year after year, but I think it's far more likely they've hit upon a dishonest way to drive traffic to their site.

I'd be willing to take the gamble being that some did get their orders filled but there's really precious little on offer.

I can't find anything of interest even with $11 off given how high most of their prices are.

It happened again, with Got LCG and betrayal at house on the hill. Thankfully they were nice enough to wait a week without canceling my order shake.

Wow, that's idiotic. My LoW is supposed to arrive today, but I don't think they'll be getting my business again, until I hear a completely positive review.

Did you order it with the code they sent out to honor the price? If so I can't imagine why you'd be unhappy, they seem to have handled that fiasco with an incredible sense of customer service. If not then yeah, understandable.

An incredible sense of customer service would have been to give you the game for FREE.

Giving you the price you ordered the game for after ignoring most people for days (weeks?), failing to timely issue refunds, failing to honor the price for some, and then going on to do the EXACT SAME THING FOR 2 MORE PRODUCTS, is, most definitely, NOT good customer service in my book.

I did order it for that price, and I did appreciate them fixing their mistake, but there were still a couple problems in my book.

1) This has apparently been a pattern which they have not fixed in the past and have not since, regarding the GoT and MoM orders having the same issue
2) While a bit of a minor complaint, Using their coupon code and the price advertised, I would have gotten LoW for 17.99 due to a 10% off coupon code. The code to activate the original price could not be combined with another, so I paid $2 more than I expected. While not a huge deal, and still an amazing price, who doesn't like to save $2

While I appreciate the band-aid they put on the situation I was involved with, I'd prefer they actually heal the wound rather than me needing to get a band-aid every time I deal with them.

Thanks for the insights. I just checked a website with some Calendars coupon codes in it and it says Calendars.com is now offering a $20 cut rate on every purchase at least $30. Just try it now guys and I hope it helps on your next shopping!
