Daily Blog - Thursday May 28th
The TRUCK IS HERE! That signals the “official” start of the College Football season when you have your Phil Steele College Football Preview in your hands. Way back on Tuesday May 12th we sent the final pages to the printer for this years 2009 Phil Steele's College Football Preview. The magazine was printed, bound and then put into boxes and stacked onto pallets. It was then loaded onto trucks and off to the newsstands and book stores and a shipment was sent to our office. This morning our shipment has arrived and we are unloading the truck as I type this. Today EVERY one of the magazines that was purchased during the winter and spring was shipped out today! As of today May 28th all orders will be shipped within 24 hrs, unless ordered on Fri, Sat or Sun in which case they will go out on Monday. I actually lose money on the shipping and handling as I just charge you for the postage and not the labor or materials to ship the magazines. If you order now I do however recommend that you spend the additional $3 and get it mailed Priority Mail. Priority Mail is $4.95 and if you are like me, when you order something you want it in your hands as soon as possible. The Post Office does not guarantee Priority Mail but this is an approximate 2 to 5 day delivery time which should get it there faster (normally mailed book rate due to its weight which can take up to 10 business days or longer). If you add priority mail your total cost is just $13.95 and it will be shipped within 24 hrs. Call 1-866-918-7711 to order yours today.
The official on sale date of the magazine is June 9th, but if our shipment is here that means most distributors have their deliveries and they will start sending them out to the book stores. The next delay is getting the bookstores to get them out of the back room and onto the shelves. There should be some stores with them on the shelves perhaps by this weekend
but most will be closer to that June 9th on-sale date. If you see the magazine in your area before June 9th, just send me a note via the Questions and Answers with Phil Steele and we will post the different locations on our website.
98 DAYS Until the 1st college game of 2009!
