I only saw the event after checking with a friend's Facebook and looking up Shopsmith. When I placed an order last month, I think the only sale special on the website listed was the 20% off of the massive drill chuck. No other offers were listed, but when I checked Facebook, I saw that I had missed a $50 off for my order that I had placed. It seems like the website only lists one special, so if there are more specials going on, they are not updated there.
I think it is great that Shopsmith is doing more with social media. Unfortunately, I am one of the few who choose not to use it....was hoping that I could still get updates via email though. Only emails that I get from Shopsmith now are my order receipts. I don't get an email with tracking information, nor notifying me that my order has shipped. Like I said, I have "signed up" on the website at least 4 times the past year, but it doesn't work. So, I was more curious about what others are experiencing. It sounds like I am an anomaly as others are getting both postal mail and emails from Shopsmith. In the future, I will call Shopsmith directly to place orders and ask if there are any specials.
I would think you would want to become aware of any/all specials that are offered. Waiting to ask Shopsmith when you decide to order something could well cause you to miss a special that expired the day before.
To be aware of all specials would be ideal. I have thought that I was getting that by signing up for the email specials. Maybe that is not the case. Maybe those specials listed on Facebook are ones that I miss. I don't use Facebook.
As for being notified when an order is assigned a tracking number or when it has shipped. I discover that information only by checking order status.
