Mine is still at:

"Make sure you have entered the tracking number correctly. If so, please try again in a couple of hours." :(

But my Fastway deliveries always seem to take at least 24hrs to show on Fastway tracking for some reason.

Standard Fastway procedure, bonus points if they ring the doorbell before running.
No bonus points for me!

I was at home, waiting for the delivery. They just decided to dump it. No door bell attempt at all. Extremely busy road and no security at building entry, it was only that I was following the online tracking that I knew it was delivered. Could easily have gone missing.

Now listed at the $51.99 price they indicated it would be on sale for in their email yesterday.

Surprised they have any stock left!

Yeah, that's why I have security cameras. But by the time I get the notification and go to the door they are usually back in the van and driving off.

Wow, seems quite a few got through, congrats to everyone who got these through. AFF sharing of specials pays off once again.

Now...who wants to sell me 6 cases for $25 a bottle? Anyone, anyone?? 😂

Just received an email AND voicemail from Qantas wine.
"I have escalated your concern and the order will be honoured, The wine will be delivered."
Nice news to wake up to!
:D
"The wine will had have to be delivered"?
Congrats. They probably thought it would be harder to get the wine back off you than to honour it at this point.

A final word - as much as the volume and frequency of posts may have annoyed some, in my view the communication, interaction and support in this forum can be crucial in achieving good outcomes in situations like this.
We may never know if that was the case this time. On the basis of the evidence I have seen, I have a sneaking suspicion QF Wine sent the cancellation emails but, because they offered a window of a couple of days for customers to make a choice, they may have failed to take the practical steps to stop the delivery process in time to prevent fulfilment of local deliveries at least.
Because they know customers share information on forums like this, once one box had been delivered, they really had no choice but to honour all orders.
Of course they willl present this as a decision they have made in the interest of customer relations and we would be churlish not to treat it as such.
But thanks to all contributors to this (and formerly the other) thread.
And finally thanks again to the OP @Jeffrey O'Neill - without their tip off I would never have known about this opportunity!
I am sure similar thanks are due to @SleepyPolarBear who was the OP for this tip in the other thread before the posts were consolidated here.

Only 1 of my 2 consignment numbers has left the warehouse. I ordered a box of Pom + another bottle.
