NEW COIN: Water Otter

Recommended Posts

Anne, THANKS for the excellent service, with announcing your opening hours, and for accommodating different time zones. I don't think I would have been able to log on at 3 AM tonight.

Didn't see the Tropical Ocean Water Otter listed?

 

Looks like there are still some left.

 

Oh, now I see it.

 

Tried to order 4 Arctic Sea's, but for some reason it would only allow me to place 3 in my cart, said due to the limit??

Yup, 3am is way to early for me as well. Thanks for having two order times! Managed to get me a few :)

I went back to see if it was giving me that problem and it did. Then I cleared my checkout of that coin and added it again and it didn't give me an error....so, it might be worth a try:)

Couldn't find the money for one but i got it anyway.

 

Where is the Midnight otter? Did they sell out in the first 15 min?

They sold out within the first few minutes. I'm thinking Anne only put half up for each selling time, so if you want one you might want to give the second sale a try.

I went on the site at 1PM EST and it "let" me put in one Midnight and one Arctic.

Then the site didn't recognize my password and by the time a new one was sent, the Midnight version was gone.

I ordered two Arctic. Is there anyone willing to trade an Arctic for a Midnight??? Pleeeeaaase!!!

LOVE there great little guys!!!

Thanks, GeoCharmer81 (AKA Kelly)

Wow - I wanted Arctic, Midnight & Emerald, and Midnight was already gone. Tried for Tropical next, and in trying to retrieve my password, it disappeared, too. So I only got Arctic & Emerald. I REALLY want a Midnight otter...

Thank you so much for considering different time zones - have ordered an Arctic Sea and Emerald Deeps (I think!) as well as a couple of cats I saved up for. Beautiful designs! :)

If anyone got a extra Midnight on the Water Otter and like to trade will you please email me at Lifesaver54149@yahoo.com. Val would have really liked this one and I think I missed getting it for her.

Thank You

Thanks everyone, I'm sorry to hear some of you had some issues with the store. :( I'll check out the cookies thing, but not sure zencart can support no cookies.

 

The other half of the coins will be going on sale at 6pm PDT.

Next sale starts in a little less than 30 minutes.

 

I've removed the buy limits from all the coins except for the midnight and red otter coins.

 

I'll be putting together shipments tonight.

 

Thanks everyone!

Wow, it opened up right before 9:00 for me, I got the midnight and red/blue I'd missed earlier today and was checked out by 9:03. The other red/blues were gone by then!

*refresh* *refresh* refresh*...yahoo! Got my order in, too! I was at work when the first sale happened, so couldn't go online. Thanks for splitting the sale today, I was able to get my otters! :lol:

I will likely have a couple of spare - I just need to check what the others want and how many to send traveling.

I'm glad the split sale worked well for people. :) The shopping cart program I use (zencart) actually made it fairly simple to put everything up at once, so I could set everything up and then one button press to activate everything at the right time.

 

All that is to say, it was quite simple so I will likely do this more in the future. :)

 

For those of you who ended up having to split buy things, I'll combine the shipments and see if there isn't an easy way to refund the difference in shipping. I guess that might be the part that makes it hard to do these split sales. :)

Thank you for running a split sale and taking us in different time zones into consideration. It was fantastic. I can still remember the original ET sale where I had to get up at 3am... OUCH.

 

I must have a play with ZenCart one of these days!

 

ETA - Oh - and I must say that I like the clean feel to your store (not cluttered with advertising and other things) and the lovely graphic you have as your logo. :)

Your store hates me... :sad:

 

What are you after? I'll work out later what spares I have and we can see if we can work out a trade.

That would be great. I was wanting one of each, so Whatever you have extra would be awesome. I will have to look through my traders.

The first sale didn't get me all the otters I wanted, and I was kind of hopeless to get them this morning 3h after the second sale went online. But low and behold, my wanted otters were still availlable. :grin:

 

I'm really looking forward to have them here.... :anicute:

Oh, dagnabbit. I didn't set my alarm and missed out entirely. : (

 

Okay, I didn't miss out entirely, but I did miss out on some of the versions. Teach me to be too busy to log on. Grrr.

Hey Kat, I will have extras of the Red Otter, Midnight on the Water, and Arctic Sea versions. You've done so much for the gc community with all the various fundraisers (plus I'm a member of the crew, and crew should share in the booty, arrrr), I'd be more than happy to send you the ones you missed or set up a trade. Let me know

Drat! Didn't realize these went on sale. Managed to get an emerald otter, but it appears the midnight is gone :( Oh well, at least I got one!

All orders that came in before 9:45pm last night went out this afternoon. All orders that came in after that are packaged up and ready to go out tomorrow. :)

 

If you did two orders over the split sale, I combined shipping and refunded the difference, so check your paypal account. :)

 

There are still a few emerald (antique copper) and arctic (satin silver) otters left. Thanks everyone!

Wow, I guess I have been sleeping recently. Missed out :( Will check and see if ANY of the versions are still left.

Thank you so much for the refund.

I'm really looking forward to get to see these cute fellows in person. :anicute:

 

And should anyone have a Red Otter for trade, I'd be delighted.

I am Impressed - with all the orders you got and still managed to ship them out almost immediately - wow! My otters arrived this morning (East Coast), and they are beautiful! Thank you so much, Anne, for consolidating shipping costs for those of us who had to hit both sale times to get the ones we wanted. I'm glad I checked both times! This is my second experience shopping with you, and I've been pleasantly surprised both times!! :D:grin:

Yay, I'm so pleased they're arriving to their new homes already! Thanks everyone for all the kind words, it really makes my day. :D

 

For those of you who are interested in activating the coins, it looks like the activation code printed on them is not in the system yet. I've sent in an email but since it's the weekend I probably won't hear back until Monday at the earliest. Until then, please use the "Retrieve your activation code" link on the activation page -http://www.geocaching.com/track/ActivationCodeRetrieve.aspx Sorry for the inconvenience!

I've seen rumors in the forum that the coin tracking side of the site is down. Others are trying to log trackable movement and activate coins and can't.
