Wow... that is ultrafast service from geomangear.com
 
Wow.. I ordered a Garmin Edge 305 from geomangear at 3:03PM today I received the shipping confirmation with Delivery Confirmation at 3:09PM.
6 minutes from order to shipping. How the hell can this be so fast? I mean their slogan is that they do indeed have "lightning fast shipping" but that's beyond lightning fast.
I can't wait to have my HRM in my hands. Right now there is a 75$ rebate on the Garmin Edge 305 and I payed 269$ for the 305 + cadence and HRM. So for roughly 200$ you can pick up a great training tool.

It's the magic of computerized waybill generation, your order comes up on the computer, they pull the item, stick it in a box, print the waybill (including tracking number), stick that on the box, and put it in the spot for the carrier to pick up. Now once you have the tracking number, you can go to the carriers website and track it from there. Chances are it will not be picked up from their warehouse until Monday afternoon, and depending on the service, could arrive in anything from a day to a week.

Ah.. i c.... but still.. other online retailers who use computerized waybill info have never send that fast a shipping confirmation.

He might have been sitting right there at the time of you purchase. I happened to be at my PC recently when I sold some old PC parts, pedals and other stuff on Ebay, it was weird, everything sold about the same time using Buy It Now, but I had everything ready for shipment within 15 mins. I already had them box, just needed to stick a label on them.

Then again, I have heard this company is top notch when it comes to service in other threads.

Thank you for the mention!

Frankly, we're almost always sitting by our computers - day and night. It raises "heck" with our spouses... ;)
