I get daily offers for online photography classes, online cooking classes, trips to the zoo and today kickboxing tickets but alas, no tracking number. Now if it was for tickets to see kickboxing octopuses, that would peak my interest.
I get excited when I see a Groupon email, but alas, mine are usually for a massage or dinner at an obscure restaurant where they probably serve octopus.

Good to see some are shipping.

I jumped in at the 400 mark and mine is out for delivery today. groupon is reliable, but their shipping habit is generally haphazard. the goods have always come no later than 2.5 weeks

Interesting. I jumped in right about the same time as ivoire. Maybe right around 450. But I haven't even seen a shipping notice yet.

On the plus side, I did get the extra battery charger and 2 extra batteries so at least I'll have charged batteries when it arrives.

Sounds like I'll be at the end of the 2.5 week window. On the plus side, this gives me a few more days to develop a plausible reason to give my wife for why I need ANOTHER camera.

Packaged just received on the doorstep, a day early. I got in early when there was just about 40 sold

And also it's confirmed to be the 01 standard prime kit!

Confirmed that it is the 01 prime lens. My good friend ordered one when he saw the price...and I had to resist ordering a 2nd one (I got the ShopNBC deal - damn my drained finances from the holidays ). This was his first Pentax camera - hes a former Canon shooter that has dumped his gear in favor for the m4/3 setup. It only took him 30 mins of playing to determine that the Q was a lot of fun to use and was a helluva deal at that price.

Ordered 12/30. Still not shipped as of 1/10. Groupon certainly rides the float.

Same here. Almost would have been worth it to spend the extra $50 at Target for quicker turnaround except I really wanted the 01 lens after reading all the posts.

Ditto, ordered on 12/30 also.

But I do have a 3rd party adapter, two 3rd party batteries, and a case on the way.

Maybe Amazon Prime has spoiled me.

Oops, as I was typing, an email from Groupon popped up.
but it was for:

For those hoping for the email, I got my notice today, I ordered at the 60+ been sold range. FedEx isn't showing anything yet about delivery or where it's coming from.
