So I couldn't help myself. I preorder the beautiful golden metallic ghost cube. I haven't ordered myself a puzzle in a long time, and I don't think I've ever done a meffert's pre-order.

What do I expect now?

:( Do you know how badly it hurt to choose between the Curvy Copter Plus and the Ghost Cube? I just don't want to end up regretting not pulling the trigger on the ghost cube and have it go the way of the Golden Cube and miss out on another great puzzle.

LOL DANG, I should've ordered from jade club! I knew I was a VIP+ Member for a reason!

The only way I can comfort you is this: did you use Paypal? Just keep an eye on that 45 day period, you're covered. :)


Also.. many folks have ordered from meffert's and haven't had a problem. But.. see above :) I did use paypal to order the ghost.

I'm not worried about mefferts not sending it out! (I'm a long time user and meffert's supporter), I'm just used to the instant gratification of Order made -> Order Processed -> Order shipped.

It's worse when it's such a good looking puzzle. :(

Meffert's is kind of quiet on e-mails(the paypal receipt usually being the only e-mail you will recieve), but I have never not gotten what I ordered. I will warn you though, if you chose the free shipping, you are in for a bit of a wait. My experience is that the free shipping averages over a month to reach North Carolina.

Also, if you have Jade Club but order from Meffert's, you can e-mail them with your paypal transaction id from you Jade Club e-mail to be refunded the discount. Might take a while to get a response(took a week from first contacting them until everything was sorted out), but they will make the adjustment. I would post the e-mail address, but Meffert's posted it as an image to foil spambots and posting it as plain text seems rude. I think Meffert posted it in the Metal Ghost cube thread.

I have said it before and will say it again: Don't worry!
I have made well over a hundred orders at Meffert's during the last 15 years (many pre-orders included).
All of them were delivered - 100%!
Sometimes shipping to Europe took some time, but I think the parcels spent a lot of time at customs in Frankfurt.
Lately, shipping times vary between 2 and 4 weeks.
I do not even think about a 45 day period for filing a complaint at Paypal. :wink:
I'm just completely certain that the shop is trustworthy. :)

I never receive any confirmation (Jade or Meffert's) from the shop directly, just the Paypal confirmation.
Why should I be concerned? The delivery of the puzzle counts not the emails.

Thanks, I'll just keep an eye out for when they start getting delivered! I haven't ordered from mefferts since the curvy copter (which I love).

Thanks, I did find it! I never registered the RFID with my jade puzzles!

Just received my pre-ordered silver matte ghost cube today.

So, I'd say don't worry... I am probably going to order a metallic ghost cube now too.

By the way, what is the Jade club?

The Jade Club was founded in 2010 by Uwe Meffert.
Nowadays the main advantage is getting 10% off the Meffert's puzzle prices.
Sometimes, Jade members get special offers not available to others.
Membership works via invitation only.
