a short story:

I ordered a set of the cards that just had my first name on them (because I'm a smartass), then a few minutes later I ordered another joke set for a friend. I just received both orders today, but the ones with my name did not show up. Instead, I got a set for a guy from some pest control board in California with a government email address. So I sent him an email to let him know I had his business cards and that he should contact Office Depot to find out what happened. He emailed me back an hour or so later to say that he had never completed the order for the cards, because his office address was changing soon. So, I received an order for cards that he did not place, and the ones that I wanted are out drifting around in the ether somewhere. I called Office Depot and they have scheduled for UPS to come get the wrong cards so they can reissue my correct set. All this trouble for some $1.07 business cards.

Thanks, ordered some for one of my websites, very simple with just the company name and the web address.

Then i couldn't resist so I ordered some with some profanity for people who choose to park poorly. We'll see if they go through.

I got a call tonight saying I should just discard my pest control cards and they will credit me back for the dollar on my original order, because they are cancelling it.

I'm just going to use the pest control cards anyway.

Yea, that was me. I was wondering if you found the deal here. I never did complete my order. I got the the point to enter my billing information and then backed out. It's crazy that they would then print them and then mail them to someone else.

I'm still looking out for your business cards, billz. Nothing yet.

Man when I checked out I had TWO sets of cards in the cart. I clicked 'Edit' on the first one to look at it and it was for a childrens charity in California!

Talk about an insecure website. I checked and rechecked my cards several times to make sure it didn't change.

Now, is this coupon reusable on the same address/credit card?

I hope you don't mind, but I copied this very practical idea. Here's to winning lots of free lunches.

You shouldn't get anything, the CSR said she was cancelling my original order. It took me five minutes to convince her that I didn't order the cards you almost bought. Plus she had a very thick accent, so it was a struggle to communicate with her.

Just kidding about using the cards, but if I did I would cross out all of your information and just write my name on them, though it would delight me greatly to confuse the hell out of people.

I don't think it is an insecure website, I think it is that the link at the top of this post has a session ID, and since we all are using that link , we all are effectively logging into the same session and crossing our orders. It happened to me to, fortunately I "edited" my order before sending and saw it. Try copying the link without the session ID and I'd guess you'd be fine.

I'm in checkout for my order, and it gives me the option to click "pickup at store" in the shipping informaion box. Has anyone does this? Is it quicker? Available at all stores?


EDIT: Crap. I selected the "pickup at store" button, where it had me select a store close to my zip code I entered at the beginning of the process, and when I did that it took me to the shopping card, which says it's empty. It also says my order is scheduled for store pickup. I never entered in my credit card info, it neve gave me a 'final checkout' screen, I didn't receive any confirmation emails, and the cart box under the shopping tools tab says 0 items but has a link that says "store pickup" and if you click it it gives you there page about shippings options, costs, etc and at the very bottom it says most stuff is available to pickup in 4 hours at the store.

But I have no confirmation or anything, so I may call the local store and see what they can tell me if received an online order or anything.

I just received your cards last night.

SERIOUSLY.

Now I wonder who got mine?
