There was a thread about 3 weeks ago about a sale at the Beverage Factory. If you search "beverage Factory" there were several threads from 2009 complaining about this being a substandard vendor. There were two who purchased recently with no complaints. Beverage Factory is also the offical vendor of Amazon.com.

Is this a case of hit or miss service or a bad vendor who saw the light?

I don't know if being an "official vendor of Amazon.com" means anything because I've had lousy luck with vendors listed on Amazon, but I've ordered a bunch of stuff from Beverage Factory before without a problem. They're not the cheapest but if I need something right away, I order through them because their warehouse is close enough to me that even if I have it shipped using ground, it gets to me the next day.

I've ordered from them once or twice and didn't have any problems. Got what I ordered, and got it quick.

I ordered stuff from them last year and it arrived and was fine. I called to get help putting it together and they were absolutely not helpful. There was a missing part and they said they would send it but did not. I got it somewhere else but the whole experience was slightly irritating so I would not order from them again myself. FWIW

Generally, people don't get excited enough to post things online when things go as expected. When things don't meet expectations, that's when things get written online. Whether it's way above expectations, or barely below expectations, that's where you'll find online comments.

This was just an observation, and I've never used this particular vendor.
