Default Who all got the $100 gift certificate from J. Stockard?

I got an email a little while ago from J. Stockard with a $100 gift certificate. I thought that seemed really weird so I went to their site and put a new vise in my cart. I entered the code and BAM! It was invalid. So I emailed them back asking if this was real or some kind of physhing thing. The emailed me back with an apology for sending me a bogus code along with a gift certificate for free shipping on my next order.

For a second I felt like I had won the lottery but I knew it was too good to be true.

I had the same feeling. Then I thought it might be a scam of some sort. Then I got the follow up e-mail. Oh well.

Got the same email... and the "oops" follow up email. Free shipping on some fly tying supplies this winter will be nice, though!

Yeah, the second, apology email was a bummer to get. Oh well. Free shipping is nice--I wonder if it will work on an over-length rod tube...

Yes, my excitement was short lived as well. I too thought it was too good to be true, but still had hope that it was. The free shipping did get me to place an order with them last night...

I have to wait to place my order with them since I just got an order from you and an order for tungsten beads from Allen. Add in the cost of me going trout fishing this weekend and heading north to go Steelhead fishing in two weeks and I had better let my wife forget about how much money I am spending before I order more!
