[...] My point is: if you're buying a "package deal" you should get the 5% off on that roll automatically even though your printer hasn't shipped.  What's the point of calling it a package deal?  Even if they want to be dicks about it, I should still have gotten the 5% as a current owner.  Now I'm wondering if I screwed myself out of a dollar and lost out on getting some free sample filament too.

Obvious question, but what did you pay for the package deal versus what you would have paid on the same day with your then-current status for the same items? If it was cheaper, you got the "deal" part of the package. As you weren't an owner at the time, you would not have received the additional owner's discount, but discounts are not usually cumulative in any case.

Prusa usually ships some sample filament regardless of what else you put on your order. I haven't purchased a Mini, but everything I've read indicates this is still the case. 

 

I bought the package deal mostly because it was offered with Azure Blue, which isn't available for right now.  It wasn't until I had checked out that I noticed Azure Blue was not discounted.  The other 3 rolls on that receipt of Purple, galaxy black and mystic brown, all were discounted since I'm already a MK3S owner.

Good to know I'll also get the free sample filament too.  Didn't want to miss out on the freebie just because paid for a extra roll.

I guess I understand them not giving the discount until the printer has shipped.  Maybe they don't want someone to order a printer, then order a bunch of discounted filament, then cancel the printer.  But if you're buying the combo from the pulldown menu that says "Mini + 1 roll of galaxy black", the 5% discount should apply to THAT roll at least.  What's the point of having a combo offer then?

RE: Unofficial Prusa Mini Wait Thread

I think I'm getting close to the "anxiously awaiting an email to show up at any moment but likely going to have to wait 2 weeks anyway" phase now that December orders are shipping in earnest, and that an order from the day before mine has shipped! I'm the lone black Mini on the spreadsheet on Dec 26...

RE: Unofficial Prusa Mini Wait Thread

I notice a lot of you ordered Black.  Just out of curiosity, why?  I ordered Orange, to match the MK3S.  I'm sure they're both identical in quality but just curios as to what was the deciding factor.  Had you seen both prior to ordering?  Any regrets now?

I think if I hadn't already had an Orange MK3, I probably would've chosen Black.  So minor regret for me personally.  I also ordered the filament sensor, but the textured plate says out of stock.

This is my first printer. I ordered black because the current plan is for this printer to be in my home office and bright orange doesn't really fit in so well there.

Went for the all black to match my enclosure which is white, so going for a black and white style. Instead of orange, black, white style.

I also ordered orange to match my MK3S. I plan on growing a print farm & will go with black to differentiate from my original printers. 

Whatever you find to do with your hands, do with all your might!

My printer is in my home office with me right now.  To be honest it doesn't match the rest of my decor either, BUT all the various color filament rolls nearby don't match either ... so it's not as obnoxious as it would be by itself.  I picked up a tall workbench to set up on.  Very happy but hadn't given much thought to matching colors.

15th December? Congratulations! 🎉 Where are you located? Do you already edited the Google Sheet?

Yeah, this is frustrating for me 😉

Sweden. Yes, but it was a bit tricky, had to remove the /htmlview stuff in the webbadress to be able to edit it.

I just don't like the color orange that much. And black fits to the rest of the printers as well as to my clothes 😉

while I am extremely happy for those who got their December orders already, I am also very very very jealous!

 

the wait is killing me 😝

RE: Unofficial Prusa Mini Wait Thread

My Prusa Mini has arrived today. I was thrilled with my first prints, out of the box. After the assembling, I only did the self test and the first layer calibration. The last firmware was already on the printer. I am also surprised at how quickly the parts were printed. Thank you PRUSA for this great Printer, I love him!

With one of the two Prusament Samples (Mystic Green) I was able to print 4 parts. I'm so happy 🙂

Great news!  I've received my shipping email - ordered 18/5/2020, orange and black, both sheets with filament sensor - cant wait.

Does anyone know where I can find the DHL tracking number so I can painstakingly watch it travel literally across the world to South Australia?

Spreadsheet updated.

I almost got rather upset reading this until I figured out you probably typo'ed the order date (should be 18/12/2019, i think?)
