Hi Everyone!


Earlier this week, during your most crucial purchasing moments of our Spring Cleaning sale, we experienced some serious down-time. The frustration that many of you experienced while trying to make purchases is unacceptable and we promise to never ever let this happen again forever ever.


To allow you to make the most of the sale, our friends at Rackspace (the folks that host Threadless) are sponsoring five thousand $5 coupons on orders of $50 or more. The first five thousand people to use the coupon code 'spring08' during the Spring Cleaning sale will receive $5 off their order on top of the already discounted sale price. Time to go on a shopping spree!!!!


In addition to the $5 coupons and to make up for lost time, we are extending the Spring Cleaning sale until 11:59:59 CST on Wednesday, March 26th, 2008! The new shirts to be released on Monday will also be on sale!


If you are interested in all the geeky details of what went wrong, please join Harper Reed, our CTO, in a live discussion of your questions and concerns. To chat with Harper please visit threadless.com/springchat. Harper will be available to answer your questions from 12pm to 3pm CST on Monday, March 24th, 2008.


Again, we apologize for the unreliable shopping experience and hope that you enjoy the rest of the sale!


Sincerely,
Jake Nickell
Founder, CEO

Little Apple Girl

I don't know it it's working for me or not. It goes through but doesn't show up as $0.00. I am using my street team points too, so I am worried about having them wiped out again if something is wrong and the coupon isn't working for me and have to cancel.

Little Apple Girl

And now, I don't even get the
*coupon code $0.00

book02683

repwwwinint prehistoric freak or sean combs mightttt frickk out

:(

cristinaish

belladonna.demarco

yep, coupon doesn't work, which is stupid given i only got the e-mail 15 minutes ago...

lunchboxbrain

Nice! I'm sure any other corp. would offer up a sorry ass apology and leave it at that.

jrouse1

yeah, i just tried the coupon and it didn't work either. it said it was worth "$0.00".

atomic child

The coupons are not gone yet - make sure you are using the coupon on an order of $50 or more to obtain the discount.

snaggle tooth

i'm sure most people will just chat with harper, since explanations were given in the blog... seems silly...

so harper, what went wrong?

nickv

This is kind of frustrating to me since I already placed two orders both of which were well over $50 this week. I'd cancel them and place them again but many of the shirts are now out of stock in the sizes I ordered...

Can anything be done for your loyal customers who already dropped big bucks this week?

Sam17

^ Yeah, sucks to be early. I just bought 17 shirts last week :(

berrynoir

Also, it's now about 6:30am here on the East Coast and the sale is still a-happening...

Little Apple Girl

Can someone give me back my STPs that were victims of the orders that didn't make it? It wasn't a fortune or anything, but I'm poor and could use some beer money. Gracias.

No account?
