        I ordered March 19. Credit card got declined because I also ordered some cups and posters, and card company freaked at multiple International orders (from Canada to USA). Got card re-activated, and got an E-Mail April 17 saying it would be re-charged. Checked mail on May 4 and it was there waiting for me.
