Option to hold + add to your order until 12/3

We decided to split the 12/2 debut so that people with varying work/life/family/school schedules would have more of an opportunity to order (just in case some of the debut items sell out). On Monday, December 2nd at 8:00am PT the first 1/2 of the stock will be added to the website; at 1:00pm PT the second 1/2 of stock will be added.

Splitting the debut means it’s possible some items will sell out in the morning and be available for order again in the afternoon. Because of this possibility, we’ve added an option in the shipping choices during checkout called “Wait! Hold My Order Until 12/3” that will allow you to choose to hold your order until 12/3.

“Wait! Hold My Order Until 12/3” is live now until Monday 12/2 at 1:00pm Pacific Time.
“Add To My Held Order (Shipping 12/3)” is live now until Tuesday 12/3 at 6:00am Pacific Time.

So, basically: if, during checkout, you choose Wait! you can place additional orders to add bags to your first order up until 6:00am PT on 12/3 — and we’ll ship your order on 12/3.

Worth noting: it can take up to 60 seconds for the “Add To” option to appear after you’ve placed the first order.
