Good news. I was very excited to see that the unisaw I ordered on
Thursday evening during Amazon's short-lived sale was actually shipped
and is now sitting in a Chicago terminal (my town of residence)
accroding ot the tracking info. The unisaw still appears as a
"completed order" in my account. So far, so good.
Bad news. The part that's keeping me sitting on the edge of my seat is
that my credit card has not yet been charged and this afternoon -- for
some unexplained reason -- amazon cleared out all of the dozens of
"saved items" in my shopping cart. They seem to be messing about with
my account, but I don't understand what is served by deleting my
saved-items/wish-I-owned-it list. I fear that they will recall the
shipment before it arrives, which explains why my credit card has not
yet been charged.
Anyone have one of these recent low-priced amazon items appear as
"shipped" together with tracking information only to have amazon cancel
it in mid-shipment? Someone commented yesterday that this has happened
to them in a previous episode.
I'd rather know now if it is not going to go through rather than spend
another day with my head in the clouds researching 110v->220v
conversion for no reason.
