Current Status of Delay



  • Sometime this morning Positive Grid surpassed $10,000,000.00 in gross revenues collected under the pre-order program. I set up a spreadsheet some time ago to track the total revenues based on each level of pre-orders, which early this morning exceeded 42,000.

    Back on March 3 Positive Grid reported that it had shipped all Super Early Bird (300) and Early Bird (750) orders and had begun shipping the Power Supporter Orders (9,000).

    Back on March 26 Positive Grid reported that it had already shipped thousands of Power Supporter orders and was manufacturing 1,000 units per day. That was 16 days ago. Assuming that they are only manufacturing 5 days a week, this is the 12th production day since that announcement, so 10,000 to 12,000 should have been manufactured. Assuming the "thousands" that had already shipped by March 26 was only 2,000, there would only have been 7,000 Power Supporter orders left to ship, which means they all should have been shipped days ago.

    Eleven days ago Positive Grid instituted the Track Order feature, although it does not seem to have assured many customers at all that their orders have been shipped. My Power Supporter order, placed December 3, is #108***, which I assume means it was the 8***th order. Assuming 1,000 units have been manufactured a day since before March 26, it should have shipped by now, yet it is still "being prepared".

    I have been patient and understanding about the delay--even urging others to be patient and understanding--but I think it is about time for Positive Grid to give an honest update about where the orders stand, especially since it has continued to extend the "Last Chance" category. Today receipts for Last Chance orders (20,589) will probably surpass $5,000,000.00. I don't blame Positive Grid for taking that money but I do think they can afford to be more upfront with their customers.

    I will continue updating this post with total revenues.



  • As a pre-order, I was (am) prepared for a delay. I do find it strange, however, that everything ome I check online, more and more people are reported by Positive Grid to have just made a purchase via a pop up at the bottom of the screen. This is not reflected on the pre-order stats and I find it difficult to believe one is sold every minute or so. Delays i can live with, but like many, I fear PG’s reputation is now rather tarnished with Trump levels of dishonesty.
    I’m confident my Spark will arrive, but I won’t believe what PG say until it ends up on my doorstep



  • @drewmcd
    To me it sounds like Positive Grid is being much more like the democrats and fake media news like CNN. I wish Positive Grid would be much more upfront and honest like President Trump as he at least honest and sincere updates every day.

    Fox is fake, cnn is fake.....think for yourself.



  • @drewmcd Actually, Drew, I have been using my spreadsheet for some time to track the growing number of new orders and the total gross revenue taken in. Positive Grid has increased the available number of Last Chance orders for each option on nearly a daily basis as new orders continue to come in. That was the point of my lengthy email, which summarized the developments. Approximately half of the $10,000,000 in total gross revenue is now from sales of the Last Chance specials.

    Unlike a lot of people, I don't believe this is a scam or that Positive Grid is stealing people's money (some of them would eventually be going to jail). I do think, however, that it is about time for them to be completely upfront with the people who have already paid that $10,000,000.00 exactly where the progress of orders stands.



  • @diegofiorillo-uk I wasn’t expecting to open that conversation up! Never mind the ‘fake news’ debacle, a term promoted by Trump, who himself is incapable of rational thought and wouldn’t know the truth if it hit him on the head. A dangerous man who has cost many lives and is followed by an unbelievable amount of sheeple.



  • @drewmcd
    That sounds like the head of the WHO (World Health Organization).
    So I agree with you, think for yourself, as the media, politicians and positive grid have agendas.

    As for positive grid, I ordered my spark back in November. I wrote to them a number of times and I have never once received a reply. Do I believe the updates that they post? NO! However I have two options, I can wait and hope for the best or I can request a refund. So far I am trying to be positive and give them the benefit of the doubt and I hope that one day soon, my spark will arrive. Until then, lets hope everybody says safe (root for whomever media or politician you like, but lets all be safe and one day soon, this will be over and we all can grab our sparks and have fun again).



  • @jameswwiggin Thanks for doing the research. Good to work with figures. They will be delivered, just a shame there’s not more honesty, that’s all. You make a good point. As for the rest, it makes for good entertainment throughout these troubled times. Karma will prevail and history will judge!

    Really, you actually believe what Trump says? He's a grifter con artist that should have been locked up years ago: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7gJgmkWJ6es



  • I ordered my Spark in mid March, PG is telling me it will ship mid May??

    Here's their response to my recent email inquiry regarding shipping time:

    "We will be shipping Last Chance Special orders in mid-May. All orders will ship based on when the order was placed. Please note that all orders are shipped on a first-come-first-serve basis, based on the order date."



  • @macgringo I am a democrat, however I do believe much more of what he says then the politicians and also news media that supports my democratic party (who should be locked up for many many more years for what they have done and also "NOT" done).

    I see that we will never agree. It would be best just to keep politics out of this (which I never started) and just keep to the topic of positive grid and the spark amp.

    No idea who started it, but Trump is compulsive liar, a tax cheat, draft dodging, rapist married to a Russian escort. He is a politician, the worst kind since he only cares about himself. Trump is an autocrat, wants to be king and Foxnews is nothing more than state TV, Trump's propaganda machine. Check out how the grifter-in-chief's family is profiting:

  • @jameswwiggin As the week ends, pre-orders have topped 43,000 and gross income received is $10,158,568.00.



  • @jameswwiggin Positive Grid needs to stop processing credit card orders until the ship date. Accept the pre-order, charge the card when the product ships, like a legitimate online retailer.

    your not a democrat, you are a free thinking human being. Stop putting labels on what your believes "should " be. The labels are meant only to divide. A divided people will never be a threat to a government so they will continue to do what they want. After all what happens if we do not pay our taxes? prison. You think your free...but your really just a slave.



  • Patiently waiting for my Spark, but in the meantime....There are plenty of sites dedicated to political bickering. How about we go there for the Trump’s Great / Trump Sucks BS. Give it a rest and stay on topic.



  • I am a Players Special Order. I ordered mine back in January and have been told late April to early May. I was originally told late March. I am trying to be patient even with the COVID-19. They might even use this as a reason to ship things out even later. I email every two week for an update.



  • @jwhipjr thankyou



  • @drewmcd really? Dragging politics into this. Isnt the place.



  • Yeah guys apologies.
