    Default Anyone know what time zone is used for the weekly specials?

    I could have sworn that the weekly sale -- as advertised on the website home page, daily deal page and Facebook -- said that M* was offering free shipping on orders over $60. I placed an order this evening, (email confirmation sent at 7:25 pm EST), and the shopping cart said I needed $100 for free shipping. The header was gone from the website, and I couldn't read the fine print very well on the picture posted with the DD, so I looked on Facebook and it clearly states the deal was until 5-14-18. I thought maybe they used Greenwich Mean Time, but that is only four hours ahead.

    It turned out I got free shipping anyway, as my order was large enough to qualify, but I would think a sale ending on 5/14/18 should still be good on 5/13/18? Maybe they need to include the end time along with the end date?

    For the Daily Deal I know it is Central time. It changes at midnight, but I can see it at 11pm mountain time. I'm not sure when the Weekly specials change. Never have been able to keep track of them.

    Before you speak,
    T - is it TRUE?
    H - is it HELPFUL?
    I - is it INSPIRING?
    N - is it NECESSARY?
    K - is it KIND?

    For me, it's midnight EST. The free shipping over $60 still shows on my header, but it would probably be (usually) a reduction for int'l shipping. I have been tempted to order, but still waiting on order placed on May 4th. We are also going to the Adirondack quilt show this Saturday in Malone, NY, so I will hold off on spending, that is if I am strong enough.

    Anyone else been to that show?

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.

    Have you appealed to M* customer service? They are really great at what they do.
