Latest Festool Recon Issue
« on: August 29, 2019, 11:15 AM »
This situation actually started yesterday, however I considered it was only a one-time glitch. Now it's continuing today.

I receive an email announcing: "Reconditioned Rotex RO 150 FEQ Sander"

When I open the email this is what appears

I clicked the Buy Now link as soon as I got the email and actually did see the RO150 for sale.  It might have sold out by the time you clicked the link and you were offered the next item available for sale?  I just checked now and it's a CT Midi.

Definitely a glitch with the email though.

@GoingMyWay  Did you receive another Recon email just now? The last one I received was the RO 150 at 9:31 this morning.

I actually called yesterday because the RTS 400 was listed with that same glitchy email. When I clicked the link it took me to the ro150. The woman said the rts400 sold out so the next item went up. They seem to be shotgunning items today as well.
