    Ordered a BBB from MCMelectronics with a 66 day wait but still at the original price $45 Free Shipping. I wasn't in a hurry so I placed the order and decided to wait. I received an email 4 days later that it had shipped and I should be receiving it tomorrow. I guess sometimes you just get lucky.

    Ordered a BBB right after Christmas from Jameco through Amazon, received an email yesterday stating the following:

    "We're writing to inform you that your order from Jameco Electronics has been canceled because the item you purchased is out of stock. Please return and place your order again at a later time. We're sorry for the inconvenience this has caused. In most cases, you pay for items when we ship them to you, so you won't be charged for items that are canceled.*

    No option to reorder or go on waiting list. Talk about being p***ed off. I was really looking forward to it too........
