    Sportsmans Guide shipping?

    does it usually take forever?

    do the 9x9 'neo' tarps have to ship from some other country or something?

    I just ordered a new 9x9 a week or so ago. Placed order on 7-27 and it arrived on 8-1. About the same when I ordered the 12x12 a few months back.

    dang, thats better than mine.

    I ordered on 7-31 ( in the morning even!) , and its not here yet.

    I wonder if the free shipping with the club membership is my hold up.

    oh well.

    I just checked, and we are very nearly the same distance from them.

    I ordered a 9x9 from them to be delivered 2nd day UPS (for 10.00 extra dollars), -- they shipped it correctly, but UPS decided to deliver whenever they felt like it, 4 days later. Made me very mad as I had gone out of town for the week and needed it before I left... I'm still trying to figure out how to recoup my 10.00.

    You'll be fine with yours though, I'm sure.

    according to the UPS tracking website it should be delivered today.

    thats not too terrible I guess ( 7 days total - 4 business days after it shipped), that is typical of UPS ground

    but it didnt ship until the 3rd day after I ordered it, so I guess thats the delay im seeing.

    if I order anything else from them, I will do it far in advance of any hopeful usage.

    When I ordered mine it seemed like they shipped it out pretty fast. They made have had a supply issue. That would explain the slight delay.

    Weird!

    I have been shopping at the Guide for over 20 years & nothing (unless backordered, & they usually told my that in less than 2 days) has ever taken over 5 - 6 business days. In fact it has been so dependable, I likely would have called them by now. Customer service is STELLAR at SG, so give them a call & see what the delay is.

    It doesn't seem like you can beat it for the price.
