OT: Mgoblueshop Question

Submitted by DrewG32 on April 16th, 2010 at 2:57 PM

So after placing my order, I noticed that for some strange reason my cell phone number was listed under the third line of my address on the confirmation page. I called their "experts" because I wanted to make sure this wouldn't screw up the shipment. Only I ended up sitting on hold with my phone crammed between my ear/shoulder for longer than I could take, plus I was really getting sick of the "please wait, no one is available" voice messages coming literally every 10 seconds. I figured this might be a more efficient place to ask, will this have any effect on the shipment? Has anyone else noticed the same thing happening on their orders? Thanks.

FedEx and UPS normally like a phone number on the package, that way the driver (or their distribution center) can call you if they issues delivering the package.

Ha trust me, it crossed my mind, but considering I'm at the office and not really supposed to be shopping online, I figured that might not be the best idea.

And for those, who waited for the confirmation email... I ordered today at about 2:30 and ended up getting it around 3:15

the Purchase Confirmation page promised. There has also been no communication whatsoever from them about shipment etc...

Did anyone else have the same experience?

I placed my order at 3pm-ish yesterday and got my e-mail confirmation at 2:30pm today. I wouldn't worry about it, it seems they've been totally overloaded with orders but if you got the confirmation page, everything should have been recorded.

I did leave the order window open for a while to wait and see if I would get a confirmation e-mail and, when I didn't (at least by then), saved the page just in case since I wanted to make sure I'd get the deal but, as I said, it shouldn't be a problem.

Not a fan of the MGoBlueShop because the athletic department created for a quick buck at the expense of the years of M-Den awesomeness and tradition.

Edit: $5 sweatshirt? Crap, if I actually had $5 to spare I might have to sell out. Oh well, plug was still mandatory...

I called them this morning which meant waking up early since 8 central is 6 pacific. I basically wanted to bypass the slow website and thought I could place an order through the phone. The girl that answered told me that she could not take phone orders since their system was "down". But she did tell me I can place an order on the super slow website.

I have no knowledge of how ordering systems work, but wouldn't the entire system be down, not just the phone orders? I'm guessing they are letting people deal with the slow process themselves.

waited two hours to call them this morning because order said $59 and said my card was going to be charged $109. Was told the system was down so they couldn't help me, but guaranteed me my card would only be charged the $59. So I placed the order only to find out that 90% of my order was now out of stock. Tonight it won't let me put in the promo code and keeps recycling to the front page.
I can't believe the leaders and best are associated with such a Mickey Mouse operation.

so since thursday, i was finally able to complete my order this morning, after all the slow site issues and countless time of having to change my cart, due to things no longer available when it said in stock, i can say i finally completed my order, didnt get everything i originally wanted but still ended up with 23 items for a little over $60, which is still a steal considering one item i got was a football jersey and those alone are $60, to anyone who hasnt started or isnt finished ill say good luck, i know how aggrivating it is trust me
