I received my parcel early yesterday. No reply has been offered by Australia Post to my inquiry as to what happened that entire week before delivery occurred, just that (by automated business rules) it now considers my inquiry resolved.
The Louis Cardini double pen cases are very nice, and great value for $25 a pop. Too bad I only managed to get three of the four I originally ordered. (One was discovered to be out of stock after the order was accepted, and the item refunded prior to shipment of the other items.)
Christ, I didn't see that coming...! BushFire sale huh...
Frankly, given what is now apparent as to what the intent was, perhaps the discount code could have said CLOSINGDOWNSALE instead of BOXINGSALE. It would probably have attracted more sales, especially with people on FPN spreading the word. FOMO and all that, when it's made clear there is no tomorrow and no second chance.

As always: 1. Implicit in everything and every instance I write on FPN is the invitation for you to judge me as a peer in the community. I think it's only due respect to take each other's written word in online discussion seriously and apply critical judgment. 2. I do not presume to judge for you what is right, correct or valid. If I make a claim, or refute a statement in a thread, and link to references and other information in support, I beseech you to review and consider those, and judge for yourself. I may be wrong. My position or say-so carries no more weight than anyone else's here, and external parties can speak for themselves with what they have published. 3. I endeavour to be frank and truthful in what I write, show or otherwise present when I relate my first-hand experiences that are not independently verifiable. If it is something you can test for yourself and see the results, I entreat you to do so.
