Adafruit wants to make sure everyone is well prepared with their electronic goodies this upcoming season.
With all the ups and downs of 2020 its more important than ever to get your orders in early. The Adafruit Shipping Department works hard to get your orders out as quickly as we can, but once they’re in the hands of our carriers they’re out of our control. Across the board we have seen carriers suspend, delay and extend on-time guarantees this year. With carriers already struggling the holiday season is bound to see delays.
So all the Adafruit Shippers say: Please be sure you get your gifts early! Order as soon as you can! Once you place your order we’ll ship like the wind!
If you forgot to heed this warning and ran out of time, Gift Certificates make a great gift for the maker in your life.
