    Same here. I've never used this before, but WTF? Just checked my credit card, and no activity there.

    Well that was some shit. Got in, put it in my cart, went to check out and it was still there; entered in my credit card info, to be charged $150 plus tax, all before the timer ran out; hit submit and got nothing. Not that I expected anything else, but Christ, that sucked.

    Oh well...glad I had the chance even though I'm not a local. Hopefully I can get some ammo to trade for some round 3 bottles.

    ^Yeah... I know I'm crying over spilt milk but what a bullshit system. If it's in your cart it should be held. Not that I wasted any time but what a sick sinking feeling to have it not go through after all that.

    did anyone not expect this to happen? basically every release CCB has done like this turns into so many people getting butt hurt. 200 spots and probably 5-10k people trying to get in. if you thought it would be easy as goin to the store to buy some coors lite, you are all too naive. just be happy they made it an online process so everyone could get a chance to try and become a member of el catador club.

    I paid the $160.50, but my cart only had 1 item.. Got the confirmation for my purchase on the actual membership, but not on the three $0.00 items. Wonder how this will play out

    Moc513 Initiate (162) May 24, 2012 New York

    agreed....if you had it in your cart, nobody else should be able to snag it. I had all 4 in my cart and then lost them when it froze when going to load my info.

    What a rush. About a quart of adrenalin pumped through me. Need a Hopslam to unwind. Maybe 4 will be a winner.

    Got in...it sounds like they let tons of people put the membership in the cart and then it was a race to fill in your info and checkout. It was a crawl through those three pages, but somehow got through. Glad to have had the opportunity, but with so few spots, surprised it wasn't just done locally.

    Why be happy they made it available to people anywhere? Local breweries are about the local people in the community still, kinda-sorta, right? They should take care of the people that helped get them to where they are. Opening this up to online sales was a slap in the face to those of us that are local. Call it entitled, etc. if you want, but there's a reason many breweries keep their clubs to locals only.

    Anyone remember El Cat 1 sign-ups that lasted from open to close and they let anyone that got there before close join? That was nice.

    as i scrolled through the people who were posted being upset, majority of them were not local. i tend to agree with you that if it is less than 500 memberships they should do it locally or do an in person lottery or something. but, its not my business to run.
  31. raczkowski

    raczkowski Initiate (0) May 16, 2011 Florida

    i am not trying to piss anyone off...just that when people get shut out of a sub 200 bottle count, or in this case membership deal, everyone gets upset and wants to throw the kitchen sink at Cigar City. I know people had it in their cart until checkout, and all signs lead to them getting a membership..i just think people need to remember how many people were trying to get el cat membership vs how many were available, and the track record of these things going sour for CCB. almost all of their online sales like this have had problems. if it wasn't in person for me 3 years ago, i would not have gotten in.

    I got through by some stroke of luck. Was having it time out on each of my 5 chrome browser tabs, but by some stroke of genius I opened an incognito tab and about a minute into it, I got a halfway loaded page. I checked the I agree box, clicked add to cart, and checked out. It took about 5 minutes to check out, but I ended up with a confirmation email for $160.50. Under my account it still says unbilled, but apparently as long as it doesn't say $0, you are good.

    Maybe there is still hope. I had the same thing happen that most of you did... got to the CC page after a ton of lag, entered everything and clicked to complete order, then it timed out and removed everything from my cart and said sold out. I had completely given up trying about 8:40pm, then got a push alert from AMEX on my phone at about 9:15pm showing the $160.50 charge and got an email confirmation from CCB shortly after showing the new membership and $160.50 charge. Looks like maybe I made it??
