Was invoiced on 4/24 and paid right away, no word since. Just sent them an email inquiry.
They are "cellaring" the spring packs before shipping. Some places charge extra for that.
This is me but 4/23.
Okay, so here was my timeline:
Initial email 4/19
Replied back with 2 beers that I had in my cart
Invoice sent from them on 4/20 for shipping/proxy
Replied back with the fact that I paid
Today, 5/6 they emailed me back with tracking
Original email/invoice 19APR
Shipping info received (in my spam) 29APR
Didn’t realize I got shipping info until the package was already in my state.
Received package 03MAY
Got a response early this morning 5/7, with tracking info (they shipped out 5/6).
4/26 invoice received & paid
4/29 box shipped
5/2 tracking info received
5/3 box through NY Customs
5/4 "Notice left - no authorized recipient available"
5/7 "Available for pickup" at local post office
By far the fastest turnaround I've ever had on an Etre box
Etre Gourmet Spring Pack
4/19 invoice received
4/23 invoice paid with added bottles
5/4 emailed with no response
5/6 emailed a second time with no response
I'm starting to get worried it already shipped and it sitting at the post office waiting to be sent back to Belgium.
5/07 delivered to my office, who contacted me (working from home) to let me know the box arrived, is damaged—and "wet"
...never had an Etre bottle break. Hoping it's only one when I get around to it tomorrow.
Update: while the corner of the box has almost completely lost its structure, and most certainly is damp, I'm not sure anything actually broke. (I haven't taken a box-cutters to the bubble wrap yet, but it doesn't smell like lambic and the bottles near that corner appear to be intact and heavy.) The dampness must've been from something else during shipping. Etre continues to impress.
I just got my tracking info yesterday and it was in the spam folder again. I have added Joana to my gmail addresses and everything but gmail considers every single email from her spam. Not sure what it is but it may be the inclusion of the tracking numbers that causes the issue.
I'm pretty sure it's the Bpost link. Generic email with embedded link to a foreign-hosted site probably doesn't jive with the Gmail filters.
FWIW, the EXACT same thing happened to my last Etre box a couple months ago. Maybe they piss themselves during transit.
Was on the waitlist for the Spring Pack, just got my invoice yesterday.
Lol. I was on the original buy, got invoiced today from etre. After a message reminder.
Aint mad, Im assuming they got stomped by agreeing to do this.
Yeah, Joana made shit seem fucking bonkers.
Got my package from Etre today. Very happy with everything, all things considered (I am sure they got crushed by all the pickups)
I’m expecting my package tomorrow (5/12).
Happy Mother’s Day to my wife!! She will be thrilled!
Mine arrived the same day as my wife’s mother’s day present, which had very distinctive markings from her favorite jewelry store. She quickly forgot about the 15-shipper and focused strictly on asking about her future gift. Could not have been luckier with that delivery schedule.
