This is the email I received this morning for a phone that was ordered on Black Friday, not Cyber Monday as you keep referring to.
Thank you for your recent purchase from the AT&T Premier Online Store. We're pleased that you chose AT&T as your service provider. Due to overwhelming demand for the Black Friday refurbished smartphones, you can expect your device to ship in approximately 14-21 business days from today. For orders that receive a ship confirmation email by December 18th you should receive your order by December 24th. If you wish to change your order please call Premier Support at 1-866-499-8008. As a reminder, you will receive an email from the AT&T Premier Team confirming shipment along with the carrier information and tracking number to track your shipment online.
So ladies and gentlemen, AT&T knew that Black Friday was the busiest shopping day of the year and instead of making sure they had the inventory for it, they are not going to ship your order until a month after you made it. MAYBE.Hope none of you were planning to give these as Christmas presents
same thing, just a different day, both are days that loss leaders are put up in hope os driving up sales
