Prize shipping info? Answered

Good morning,

I recently won a prize for the fix-it contest.  I received an envelope with the stickers and t-shirt, but it has been like a week and a half since then and I have not yet received the rest of the prize.  Is there a tracking number or something I could get to see what's up?

Just hold on for a little bit. The non-Instructables prizes are either coming from Amazon (less wait time) or from the sponsor (more wait time). They also will often wait until everyone's info is verified before sending the non-Instructables prizes as well as batching the shipping from several contests together.

They just had me e-sign a document with all the taxes, liability, blabla stuff so presumably they're shipping now. But wow! It's been about a month!

Well, hopefully now it'll come soon and I can stop standing by the mailbox with a pitiful expression like Charlie Brown on Valentines day.

Yeah, I know... that jazz about gift horses and their mouths, right? ;)
Thanks for your responses.

Parts of the prize will probably be coming from the sponsors, via a different courier.

If there are problems, drop an email to support@instructables.com.
