I believe the sale runs another day, but I ran out of credit and had pretty much picked up what I wanted, so I requested shipment today. It says it will ship 12/16, arriving 12/18. I am curious to know if anyone else is requesting a shipment soon, specifically if you wait until the end of the sale, will it push out the ship date? Based on the last several years, 17 days from request to delivery seems like an improvement, but I suspect if you wait until the sale ends, many others will likely do the same and push the ship date out further.
I also noticed that there was no flat out free shipping this time that I could find. You needed to spend $100 to get free shipping.
