edit- looks like they ran out within a day, again. But their website says they expect to get another shipment next week on Thursday/Friday, and having that knowledge in mind is how I was able to find mine. Good luck to anyone looking to get one.
original post as follows:
I’ve had my eye on them for the past couple of months, but finally was able to get on the shop when they actually have it available, so I placed my order last night. $160 so you’re not paying the multi-hundred dollar scalping price on Amazon. I only heard about it because of this forum, so just wanted to hopefully pay back the favor to anyone else who is interested.
I’ve never fully understood scalper logic
I have _____ it’s good, but nobody can get them
I should sell it for a lot of money, that I can’t use to buy another _____ , that I currently have and won’t be able to replace
I ended up ordering one and had it shipped to Germany where it’s waiting for me in a few weeks. This would’ve been good to know, shipping to the EU, VAT, and euro to USD conversion cost me an arm and a leg.
What is the shipping time/cost?b(to the US)
standard shipping was, I thnk $7. As of today it looks like the shipment is just a few towns over so I assume I’ll be receiving it by tomorrow (Saturday) or Monday, so that took a little over a week.
On that note, flippers are back in stock as of this moment. Good luck biohackers.
Did you ever get yours? USPS is taking incompetence to a new level on mine. Watching the tracking and it stops at every state on the way down then skips my state (Tennessee) then goes to YBOR in Tampa, FL. It has since spent the last three days leaving YBOR then arriving at YBOR every 12 hours.
It’s peak season, so all the companies are hiring temp people like crazy. I worked at USPS and they wouldn’t drug test or do backgrounds during peak season. I would load 6 trucks then unload 6 more to reload them properly. The incompetence level is unbelievable during these months.
I’m guessing the loaders keep putting your package in the wrong place or hidden behind something so the drivers can’t see it or find it til they’re almost done for the day.
I did get mine, but it was on either the Tuesday or Wednesday after I estimated, so still just over a week. I’ve had it almost a week now. The shipping updates were not accurate on either the USPS website or the one for the specific shippers they use, but I did receive an email on the day that it was delivered, that it was delivered.
Lucky you, im 12 days and counting, who knows how long mine will circulate in florida for no reason.
Ordered mine when this thread was posted and got mine yesterday… Honestly insane how slow it was
Just ordered mine, Looks like I’m going to be waiting for awhile
Still better than Kickstarter or preorder times
Lol, I’ve had to wait over a year for firearm stuff… just for some person in a cubicle to do the exact same thing that takes 1 minute for a sales clerk to do…
1st world problems lol
Just updating a few threads.
The flipper zero is back in stock in the US today. Just got one. Have been trying a while!
7 hours later… out of stock again!
They put out that they were actively trying to fight scalpers and not sending several to the same address.
So hopefully it won’t be so long till they’re in stock again
I’d be awesome if they managed to make enough to get money from the scalpers, saturate their inventory, and have enough left for normal people and cyborgs.
Yes, I just said that no one on this forum is normal.
When you last posted that they were available I got so excited that when I found that they had immediately sold out I bought one from the buyer/seller topic on the flipperzero.com forum. Turned out to be a scam and I lost the money I spent. There were some warning signs that maybe I should have picked up on but hey ho… They initially banished the scammer but when I pointed out that it was obvious they had multiple accounts that were still active they shut the whole topic down.
This post is to tell you that I have just bought from the flipperzero.com shop and I hope that turns out to be legit.
Shit experience for you, Thanks for sharing and the warning.
I’m sure youll still enjoy your Flipper when it arrives
Happy you got a reorder that should be legit.
Sorry you got taken advantage of. That stinks. I’m glad it resulted in you getting it shut down though, the hopefully keep it from happening to anyone else.
I’m sure it will work out great for you this time.
