Three 80G FW FireLites, $92+change, tomorrow.

I like Superwarehouse.

I'll have to send them an e-mail thanking them, and letting them know they now have a new customer.

That makes three Go-To vendors I check before going anywhere else.

However, that does not preclude looking elsewhere immediately when there's a RUN, YOU FOOLS!® production.

Funny you mention that, and in those particular terms. A little while ago I received a 'thank you for your business' email from SuperWarehouse, and I decided to reply with the following:

Russell,

I'm glad that you sent the email below, because it reminded me that I had been meaning to commend you on the way you handled the apparent price mix-up of last week on the SmartDisk FireLite portable drive. At the time I placed the order it just seemed like a great deal. It wasn't until a day later when I read of other companies canceling orders that it became evident that there may have been a widespread mistake.

That said, I appreciate your honoring your website listed price, and I know for a fact that the way you responded made a positive impact on me and many others who have now added SuperWarehouse to their list of "go to" vendors. There is much praise for your company on some of the forum sites I visit regularly and I hope this proves to be a positive thing for SuperWarehouse in the long run.

I wish you continued success, and I will certainly be checking SuperWarehouse first, when the time comes to purchase supplies and other equipment.


I think it's nice to let a company know when they do well as well as when they screw up.

Yep, I have 2 waiting in the mail for me when I get home $60 total. BTW I just got this email from SW. Looks like a stand up guy with a stand up business. They are definitely in the mix for my business from now on.

Yeah, I got the same e-mail from Russell. I also got an e-mail on Monday saying my order was processed but when I try to check the status, I still get a "Tracking No. not available yet" message. I'll believe it when I see it.

actually, it is Señor Cinco Equis; the SW folks are friendly and informal, hence "xxxxx"...



Sometimes it is what it is...
and then there's times when it's really better.

I think it's nice to let a company know when they do well as well as when they screw up.

My sentiments exactly.

I got five e-mails total; two from Russell, two from Jennifer, one from Irene.

Given the late hour I jumped in the pool, I fully expected to strike out, and no hard feelings.

But SW came thru even though they didn't have to. Since the $30ish price was a wholesale price, some places may not have done too bad with shipping. But since SW gave me free shipping (3 or more?) this may have cost them.

I'm in.
