On Black Friday, I took advantage of Titan’s 15% off discount code. I ordered their new glute-ham developer (GHD), which is basically a clone of the Rogue Abram GHD 2.0, but for a lot less money.
The list price is $315, so the coupon took it down to $267.75 w/free shipping. Unfortunately, by the time I placed my order, the GHD was listed as being “Temporarily on Backorder.” No big deal, I figured. I’m patient, I can wait.
Backordered… But for how long?
But how long will I have to wait? Here’s what they said when I asked:
“Thank you for contacting us. This item is on back order until 04/2017. I understand this is a while from now. I can have this order cancelled and refunded if you like. Please let us know if you have any further questions or concerns.”
Yes, you read that right… It’s on backorder until April 2017!
Update: It looks like there might be a silver lining here… Rumor has it that Titan Fitness is updating their design to improve various aspects of their GHD (foot plate, handles, etc.) and it sounds like the backorders might be filled with the upgraded version.
Oh well… I’d like it sooner, of course, but it’s not urgent. Thus, I’ll probably just wait and hope that it comes in earlier than expected. Maybe others will get sick of waiting and cancel their orders, moving me up the list.
