OMG - I am so excited. This cutter is amazing. Its really sturdy, the drawer underneath is so clever (and it latches) and the LED lights are such a help in seeing where I'm going to cut. I have overhead lighting and the shadows have caused me to cut too long or short. i give it an A+ I even caught my husband playing with it. He thought it "pretty cool" which is about as excited he gets about anything. I can't wait to scrap something.

Wow, that's fast shipping. I placed my order on Sat. I wonder when mine will get here. So glad you love it. I was really hesitate about spending that much money, but my DH convinced me to go ahead and get it. I'm so tired of cutters that won't cut straight.

Did you get a shipping notice? UPS? That was lightning fast! I think I ordered the same day. Right after they reached the 500 "like" mark (Friday 14th). Crazy!

ETA: Here is the info on their site about shipping.

The warehouse handling time is generally 1-2 days. UPS shipping time is 1-5 days depending on your distance from the warehouse (Utah). So early next week is a good estimate. UPS usually sends out tracking info, but they're not very fast about it.

That was delivered very quickly if it was sent Friday night or Saturday morning. I did not see anything about overnight or 2 day delivery but probably missed that.

I ordered mine Sunday night so I guess It will be here in a couple of days.

So far I am very impressed with this company.

Just to back up what Kat was saying, I too love this company. I sent them an email on Sunday and received an email back from them less than 24 hours later. I then replied to this email and again received a quick reply. Very curteous, very helpful and even said they'd look into an add-on for future models to help us metric users out.

I can't wait until I get to America and have mine in my hand.

I went round and round with myself about buying another cutter. I decided to pass. I may regret it though. I have so many different cutters and so far my Tonic is working out well.

I was impressed with the tutorial I saw. Enjoy your new tool.

Urrg! I was one of the ones who was having problems ordering. If my order had gone through I'd have my trimmer right now because I tried to order before you did! How was it delivered?

But Arianne from Cutterpillar replied to my email on Sunday and helped me right away. There was a problem with the AMEX transactions. I was able to order Sunday evening. I wrote her two more times to ask questions and she responded right away. Excellent customer service!

Did you receive a shipping notice?

I have been STALKING my e-mail waiting for a shipping notice and so far I have not seen anything. I think I ordered mine right about the same time as Jilliene so hopefully mine will be here soon. I am so excited! It was such a good deal that I could not pass it up!

Anybody have a report on how it does on chipboard, or are you all keeping the blade pristine for paper? I guess I could keep doing what I've been doing, that is, keeping one "ratty" blade in my Fiskars slide trimmer for board only.

I'm going to have to rearrange some things to make room for this baby, but it sounds as if it will be worth it. Heck, I'll sit with it on my lap if I have to, at that price!

There are 12 inches on the ruler with really great tick marks!

The reason I got mine early is because they saw a thread I had posted about the promo when it first started so they gave me one for free! You might have seen my avatar on their FB page with a thank you. i wanted to post it so bad but thought it best to let the FB challenge run its course first. I suspect they sent it out before they had 500 likes. maybe on wed or thurs of last week. After the promo they are probably swamped. I think they also did a promo with craft channel too so I'm sure their shipping dept. is working overtime. If yours comes in, you should let everyone know so they can predict their arrival time better. I did not get a shipping email or delivery notice. It just arrived on my doorstep monday morning! You are going to love it!. the light is awesome and I just love the drawer underneath. a great feature.

wow!!! that is great.

I need good cutter so badly. I wish I would have just taken the plunge a long time ago and invested in one. The money I've wasted in cutter that don't work or don't last not to mention the ruined papers would have easily bought 3 Cutterpillars.

Has anyone who ordered one over the weekend heard any word yet? The charge showed up right away on my credit card-so I know my order went through...but I've not received any shipping notification or tracking number. Just an e-mail receipt.

I have heard NOTHING!

I figure if it takes the longest shipping possible, as per their facebook page, then I should receive it by Monday. I am sure they are SWAMPED with all of the orders, but I really would appreciate some sort of update.

Just read this on their Faceboook page:


Monday was the first day since the promo started that the shipping could go out (UPS doesn't ship on the weekend) and our handling time is 1-2 days, normally. So my guess is it went out yesterday or will go out today. But please call our shipping department if you believe there is an issue. Simple Products Corp. orders@simpleproductscorp.com or 1-866-553-8886. Thanks!

I just called today to check on my order & was told that for some reason, mine didn't ship out when everyones did, which he said was on Monday & Tuesday....go figure, just my luck! So mine didn't even go out until today & won't be arriving until Monday at the earliest & I really wanted it for this weekend cause my trimmer doesn't even work anymore I am a little disappointed right now.....they could have at least sent me an email telling me when it would ship or what was going on with my order....they charged my credit card right away when I ordered Saturday morning, but yet, mine is going to take even longer to get here

Dear Cutterpillar:

Thanks for the great offer. Don't worry about getting mine out to me at super hero speed. I'm chill. I know you have lives, spouses, children and such.

When someone takes my money, and I hear nothing in return about when my merchandise is going to be delivered, I become concerned. I simply asked if anyone had heard about their shipment.

What day did you say you ordered? I ordered mine on the 14th. It would be unrealistic to expect the merchandise right away. I would, however, expect to get an email update on the status of something like "it's being processed". The only email I have gotten was a receipt and yes my card was charged the same day. I'd be tickled pink to have it appear on my doorstep unannounced, but not very as I do not want something sitting on my doorstep unattended.

I agree, Barb.....their website says it takes 1-2 days to process the order & I know they got a lot of orders from the deal, but still, an email would have been nice. Or maybe they need to change their processing time to 3-5 days because that's what it's taking before they even mail them out. I had to call them to find out the status of my order & get a tracking number from them that way.....if they would have just emailed me the tracking info or some sort of update as to the status of the order, I wouldn't have had a problem.

I guess I need to make a call today

So hasn't anyone received a shipment notice, only getting the details if they call?
I got my receipt but no order number on it and at the Simple Products website it can't find me if I try and log in.
I don't want to call, I would usually have had an email update. I ordered on the 15th.

YAY!! Mine has just arrived-- and it cuts beautifully! I ordered on Sunday and 8 days later, I have it.... in central Illinois! My only wish is that the ruler went all the way to the blade ( it stops about 1/2 inch away). If I could have a second wish, it would be that I knew where the batteries were kept in this house so I could put them in!!
