For 40% of, I can finally experiment with a poncho/tarp system, not to mention the Reed, pants, 2 running shirts, and Ridge Runners shorts I also picked up. I was being so good, too. Looked at the Quest pack and Ultra 20 quilt for winter camping but decided I'd be happier with a ULA catalyst and JRB No Sniveler in the long run.

Hmm....STP does have some good deals. They have the Litespeed for 35-45% off. Maybe if the Ultra 20 makes it there I'll place an order.

Thanks Sam! I got a Golite Ion for 30 bucks and also the Poncho/Tarp for 30 bucks.

Like a previous poster, I can experiment with a poncho/tarp on the cheap now. Worst case is I sell it on the swap :-)

Oh yeah, got a visor too hehe.

Dan,

Why not get an online retailer, such as www.frontcountry.com to price match the golite sale?

Moosejaw would not price match when I tried. Normally moosejaw will price match but denied me based on not matching promotional codes. I wanted the reward points from them.

Other retailers are certainly worth a try.

Has anyone got shipping confirmation? I haven't.

"40% Off Golite" shipping confirmation on 06/08/2009 19:00:53 MDT Print View

I got UPS tracking codes for both my quilt and my Gust windshirt within 24hrs from ordering them of Friday.

Re: "40% Off Golite" shipping confirmation on 06/08/2009 19:33:36 MDT Print View

I ordered on Friday and got a receipt with order number but now shipping info yet either. I'm having trouble emailing them at the moment, as either their contact page or my browser is being wonky.

What might have happened is that we ordered faster than their inventory system could keep up with, and so some of us ordered something that was actually out of stock? That may be why the shipping is being held up.

I ordered a long ultra 20 quilt Thursday, and received shipping information Friday. Went back and ordered a shrang-li yesterday, but haven't got anything on it yet except the receipt.

I called earlier today and was told that "on the e-mail announcing the sale and code, that their normal same day shipping didn't apply to this sale..."

I then got my "shipping info received" notification this evening.

The original sale is good through Friday 6/12 at 11:59 PM. It hasn't been extended beyond that as far as I know.

just got off the phone with golite on 06/09/2009 10:16:00 MDT Print View

CS said shipment from warehouse could take up to a week.

It seems those that got in early avoided the bombardment that likely took place later in the weekend.

I notice that backcountrygear.com has the ultra 20 at a steep discount as well.

Edit: Just got my shipping confirm. Should be here for the weekend.

Thanks for callinh, Jay. I was probably going to do it this morning, but what you found confirmed my suspicions . . . we just overwhelmed them. I really wish companies could update you when your order isn't going to ship immediately. Lack of info is what ticks people off.
