Mine shipped on the 15th, and said arrival on the 17th. Then I look today, and it says estimated delivery August 22nd. Ugh!! I had plans for them over the weekend. And five more days, I'm going to have boiled olives! They are in Reno NV where it's high 90's, coming to FL where it's low 90's. Hope they will be okay. Anybody know if that many days of heat will spoil them?

I think the choice of shipping partners is harming Woot here. Once it's in the hands of FedEx, those mush-heads are in charge. Maybe there's a reason why it is cheaper for Woot to use FedEx at all (let alone their brain-dead SmartPost service).

Mine claims to have been at my door days ago, yet I don't have the package, nor do my neighbors. I submitted a ticket to service@woot a short while ago, but don't yet have a confirmation that they've received my ticket. Hopefully, I can get a new one shipped rather than a refund.

I just hope Woot has a way to bring these types of issues to the table when they're talking bulk shipping discounts with FedEx - it's costing them money and credibility.

That's one long hot road.
Over a week on the back of a truck. Well I suppose they had to get from Greece to California first... A month and 9000 nautical miles later.

I just wonder when these were prepared?

It keeps all the olives submerged in the brine so they don't dry out.

Same here.... they are not lasting as long as I thought they would. they remind me so much of the olives my Grandfather used to jar, they are awesome!
