    Went live June 18 along with In Search of the Castaways. My order dispatched a few minutes ago so hopefully the package will arrive by Monday or Tuesday given the usual turnaround time

    I know a couple people paid for expedited shipping so hopefully tomorrow or Friday some 1st impressions will filter in

    I’m just waiting to see if a 60% offer happens anytime soon at DMC cause I have a few things I’ve been waiting to order. One way or another I’ll get this, but since I probably won’t be watching this until later this summer anyway, I’m waiting on that.

    But I’m very excited to hear what you guys have to say when you get your copies.

    An information heads up for those who haven't used DMC shipping lately. Somewhere in the last few months DMC changed their shipping from normal media mail or OSM to some sort of special USPS shipping on most packages.

    Anyone who has bought from Hamilton Books likely already knows this pattern, but when you enter the Tracking Number at USPS it will show Shipment Created/Awaiting Pickup. Then the tracking will likely go dead for several days and look like it's just sitting on the counter waiting since it doesn't give you the Package Accepted, Departed in Wisconsin /Accepted at 2nd site in IL/IN/PA, departed, etc. This lack of apparent activity tends to frustrate folks since it looks like nothing is happening. If it's bad enough you might caontac DMC support and ask them to track (or give you the tracking number if it never attaches to your order. Apprarenly DMC has some sort of internal tracking ability that customers don;t get from USPS

    The next update will likely be when it hits your local or regional Distribution Post Office usually the day before it's delivered. Mine usually show up at the Regional in Greensboro or Charlotte about the 4th day after shipment and deliver the next day. For West Coast this seems to be more 5th/6th business day..

    On your Order History, the orange Tracking Button will light up when the tracking number is attached to your order -- usually a few hours after teh dispatch email. I've rarely found that button helpful. I usually suggest extracting the tracking number from the Order History page:

    Right click on the order or over the Tracking Button
    Page Source
    CTRL-F ( Cmd + F on a Mac)
    Type trackingid in the search bar/Enter and usually it will show up the line below
    If the tracking number start with 9xxxxxxxx then take that nubmer to USPS tracking site https://tools.usps.com/go/TrackConfirmAction_input
    If it starts with Axxxxxxxxx then that's OSM Worldwide and can be tracked on their site https://www.osmworldwide.com/tracking/

    After composing an order and considering the number of classic Disney titles I still want to add, I’ve decided to wait until that 60 day period for including 20KLUTS has elapsed. Then I’ll do the subscription flip one more time.

    Probably a stupid question but: Does buying an exclusive (like 20000 Leagues) at full price count toward your commitment? I bought 20000 Leagues, it even shipped today, but my commitment checklist doesn't show it.

    Not a stupid question. It does count from what an HTF member posted previously.

    I find it takes them awhile to update your commitment screen--like several days.

    Yes, though it usually takes 3-4 days after the charge is posted to see your commitment checkmark fill in. I find most of the time, by the time the package arrived you should see it credited on your list

    Pretty much anything that non customer discounted and 19.95+ should count. The only exceptions I can think of are the rare DMC 50% offer like TV set last month -- I don't think a $20 set at the special price would count though they have surprised my before

    Makes sense that they'd wait until the order is processed, shipped, and your payment has cleared.
