Spring pack;
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. :(

4/23 paid
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.

FWIW, the EXACT same thing happened to my last Etre box a couple months ago. Maybe they piss themselves during transit.

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
I’m expecting my package tomorrow (5/12).


Happy Mother’s Day to my wife!! She will be thrilled! :confused:

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.
