Don’t Get Caught Waiting in Line…Pre-order at Abt!

Wednesday, January 4th, 2012

2011 saw a slew of high demand, hard-to-get products released.  The iPad 2, the Transformer tablet by Asus, and the Panasonic DMCFZ150K digital camera are just a few examples of items that loaded our phone lines and online chat with customers wanting to know when they could get one.

Have you ever noticed that some people always seem to get the latest products right when they come out, while the rest of us spend endless hours hunting down these new toys?  How do they do it?  How can you make sure that going forward, you don’t have to spend those hours on the phone and computer?  The answer lies on a roller coaster….

When I was a kid, we used to take a family trip to Six Flags Great America every summer.  It was always a blast to go ride the new ride for that year.  The newest roller coaster was always the highlight of our trip.  I’ll never forget the summer that Six Flags built “The Eagle”.  At the time, it was the largest, tallest, fastest wooden roller coaster in the US.  I couldn’t wait to ride it.

Well, the big day came and we all headed straight for the Eagle.  Holy cow!!!!  You would think they were giving money away on this ride.  The line was the longest any of us had ever seen at Six Flags.  For those of you who have been to an amusement park, you know that that’s saying a lot!  So we decided to wait and see if the line got smaller.  You can guess what happened.  Every time we checked, the line was longer.  In the end, we never got to ride the Eagle that day.

Who got to ride it then, you say?  Well, the people that got in line, of course!  And the earlier they got in line, the quicker they got to enjoy that new ride.

It’s the same with these new, hot, hard to get products.  The best way to get one is to get in line by placing a pre-order.  What is a preorder you say? Abt always gives you the option to preorder any new or hot items right on our web site.  When you see that new item you just have to have, the first thing you should do is place a pre-order.  That gets you in line for the ride and makes sure no more people get in that line in front of you.  Good web sites, like Abt.com, will not charge your credit card until the item arrives and ships.  There is never a penalty for cancelling.  A pre-order costs you nothing but the 2 minutes it takes to enter it online or over the phone.

So,  stop spending your valuable time looking for those hot new products.  Place a preorder at Abt now and get on the ride before anyone else!
