Bare Bones Pops Special Dec 10-14, 2008

Here's the Bare Bones Special page. Opens Dec 10, NOON Eastern Time (NY)

Here's why we're doing this crazy special:
1) to acknowledge the current economic hardship many folks are experiencing
2) to express our gratitude that the Pops have started so many folks back on the road to their health.
3) To offer you the option of giving someone you care about - this year - the first step back to health. We'll ship them for you in U.S. with a personal card.
4) to celebrate the selection of the Pops as the "Best Multi of 2008"
This special will be available only on this page. Doors open on this bare bones Pops event December 10, NOON ET.

That gives you time to make your list. Each order to a different person incurs a shipping/handling cost - and within the U.S., that's one price for this special. One to ten boxes shipped to someone is one S/H ($6.95).

Okay Kim,

Yes, I know it is probably very funny. You know you are being so American!

You are opening the doors on a first come first served basis at a certain time. (Yep, great marketing ploy.) If I want to play (and I do) I just need to know what that time is.

I googled time zone acronyms and didnt find ET. I'm not American, so Noon ET means zip to me.

So I asked instead of researching what time you are talking about. After all, if you're selling something you'd like to make it easy for your customers to buy, right? Even the dumb ones, right?

So starting with UTC and GMT = Coordinated Universal Time and Greenwich Mean Time. We have AEDT = Australian Eastern Daylight Time. It is UTC + 11 hours.

I am guessing ET is Eastern Time. Eastern Time means you are where... New York?? I guess that is about as East as you can get in the US. OK. If that is correct then you are UTC/GMT - 5 hours. Of course presuming it is EST and not EDT.

So Weds noon ET, or EST, is Thursday 4am for me. If I want to play in real-time I will have to set an alarm...

Thanks anyway.

Hey Wendy -- you write:

DUH, so very sorry. Klutzball, I feel like. YES EASTERN TIME. NY time in the US. So must be: "UTC/GMT - 5 hours."

Goodness, I had a provincial moment there.

Remember that shipping will be whatever it is outside the US, ok? We'll let you know what it is after your order comes in...

Thanks Kim,

I guess that was a weird way of reminding you of your international customers, eh! The beauty of the LIVE TRAFFIC FEED on your site tells me we are as far flung as Norway, Austria, Brazil, Hong Kong, Germany, India... and even down under.

How cool is that!
