Mrs.Litz said...

It worked for me, it took forever to load, but said I'd get my paint in a few weeks! Thank you so much!!! :)

it's working now

Amanda said...

It worked for me! Can't wait to get this little surprise in the mail. I love it when free samples come in the mail!

Jessica said...

After I ordered, it said I had already ordered. I have not ever ordered anything from this place. I have never even heard of them. Maybe the free paint is all gone??!

Shopping Frugal said...

Site is loading really slowly.. but hang in there

fran said...

Got mine. Thanks...this is so much fun getting all these "freebies".

Kate said...

I am stuck on the order page, it just keeps saying "order transmitting"....wonder if it will go through?

fran said...

Kate,
Hang in there...mine did the same thing, then I saw at the bottom of my screen that I got an email confirmation.

Stacy said...

I got mine thanks!

Looking4Deals said...

Well, I think I got mine!?! I did not get an order confirmation. the site is SUPER SLOW.

Anonymous said...

It took forever to load but I picked out the one I wanted and it said I;ll get it in 3 weeks. Thank you

Reiko said...

Fran - How long did it take to get an email confirmation? I'm not sure if mine went through...I think the site might have crashed before it went thru.

Jen Pix said...

I got mine and my e-mail confirmation came within minutes.

Jenna said...

Got mine...thanks for the reminder!

Tammy said...

ok so how do you order? I selected my color and nothing happens? What do I need to click on or has the website crashed?

Anonymous said...

Not sure if I am doing something wrong but I click on the color and then there is no way to order. Does anyone know where I go to order? Thanks for the freebie as always you are an incredible resource!

Congratulations! Your order number ____for one quart of GLY15 Early Morning Sun Glidden paint (Eggshell sheen) has been processed and is on the way. You can expect to receive your paint in 3 to 4 weeks. If you have any questions about your order, call our customer service line at 1-800-GLIDDEN.

Please note: This is your only e-mail notice, we won't bug you again!

fran said...

Reiko,
I would say maybe a few minutes. If you can't get it through the site, you can also call for your paint at 1800GLIDDEN. The promotion runs until 7/2/09...I just don't know, if they get hit with too many orders, they might pull the promotion. Try calling...you might be on hold for a while, so put it on speaker phone, and you can do something else, while you are waiting for someone to answer...then again, you might get through right away. Good luck:)

Kate said...

yippee! You were right Fran, I got the email! Can't wait to start painting!!

Anonymous said...

It worked for me! It took a long time to load - even with my cable, but it is worth it. Thanks for the tip!

SuzyQpon said...

The site is SUPER slow but if you let it take it's time (I just let it run in the background) I think it will work. I just got mine.

molly said...

my order has been transmitting for like 8-10 minutes- anyone else's take this long?

Reiko said...

Mine has been over 15 minutes...I'm letting it just run this time in hopes that it goes through. No email from them yet.

fran said...

Reiko,
Are you at the page where they are processing? That's where I was when I got my email. Did you check your email?

Reiko said...

Fran -

I've been refreshing my email every few minutes...LOL

The site is still stuck on transmitting. I'm keeping my fingers crossed. :)

fran said...

Reiko,
Minimize that page and try to do it again, maybe something is just hung up, but don't close it...that's seems like a long time...mine might have been more that a few, but not 15 mins. Why not try to call them?

Rebecca said...

Last night I tried the site..and it took a good 5 minutes just to bring up the "come back tomorrow for free paint".

So no wonder it's taking so long now with a bunch of people all trying to get on at the same time!

LilKim said...

mine only took about 5 minutes processing time

Danielle said...

I keep clicking on a paint color and then nothing happens :(

Melissa said...

I just called 1800-Glidden and placed my order. It was much easier that way.

Rebecca said...

It has been stuck on "Your order is transmitting" FOR-EV-ERRR!

Rebecca said...

Okay i just got the confirmation email before it finished "transmitting".

So check your email!

Anonymous said...

waiting for everything to load is kinda like watching PAINT DRY...so I guess we will be ready when the paint comes. LOL

Reiko said...

Fran, I took your advice and called. Attempt #3 at calling got through. Apparently, the whole site crashed and they can't even input the info via phone. The CS agent is just writing down people's order and said they will process it later!
I guess I'll see if I get an email sometime today. Thanks for your help!!

fran said...

Reiko,
Glad to help. I'm sure you'll get it.
Just a quick question for you. Who do you use for emails? I have Microsoft Outlook, and I don't have a refresh button...I just leave it open in my task bar, along with Hip, and today, Glidden, and I just click from my task bar and go back and forth to view what's happening on each site.

Reiko said...

I have yahoo but use Firefox which has a refresh button in the tool bar (is that what you're asking?). Sometimes I have to refresh the page in order to see new emails or comments...

fran said...

Reiko,
Yes, thanks. I like to learn new things when it comes to computers,although I know everyone has different programs.
By the way, I like your name...is it pronounced ree-ko?

Anonymous said...

I was able to get a sample ordered for myself! It did take a few attempts to get the page to load; firefox was more successful than IE.

Andie said...

Just called at 11:45 to 1-800-GLIDDEN, the site has crashed- but they will take your order. Nice. I ordered crisp linen white- it's a can't fail in case you can't even look at the colors.

Hanson Girl said...

The link doesn't work, but I called 1-800-GLIDDEN, Option #1, and requested it that way, it worked great.

Anonymous said...

The site took along time to load but I got my sample. Thanks, Hip2Save.

Jenn said...

how much area can you paint with a quart?

Anonymous said...

I called the number, pressed 1, got a message saying something about trying again later, so I tried again right away and got through!! I will be getting my free paint in a few weeks! YAY!!

fran said...

Jenn,
When the site calms down, go back on it. When I was on at midnight (I didn't know if they would be starting then), I clicked on "paint calculator"...you might get your answer there. HTH.

Matt & Kristin said...

Yea! I love that I am getting free paint! It took forever to load the page--it said "done" but the page was blank, so I had to keep trying it over and over. Once the page came up it took no time at all to get through the process.

Thanks for the reminder! It took a while but I finally got mine.

It says 'while supplies last' so it's very possible this offer could end before they'd intended it to. :) Something to keep in mind!

I ordered one through the web but my email confirmation said the wrong color, so all I did was call the service number and the lady wrote down the right color and my paint should be here in a few weeks. I am so excited. And super nice customer service.

Reiko said...

woohooo - got my email confirmation FINALLY!

Fran it sounds more like Ray-ko :)

Anonymous said...

I get to pick the paint color and then what? Is there an 'order' buttom somewhere? I don't seem to get past the swatches.

Anonymous said...
