July is always a big month for new puzzle announcements! This is the time of the year that we see the big limited edition Christmas puzzles and many companies have mid-year releases in July! I have a lot to talk about this month including new puzzles at Puzzle Warehouse as well as some releases/announcements in Europe that we’ll be getting over here hopefully soon. Scroll down for the new Christmas puzzles for 2017!
For your Edification – A Tip on Saving Shipping Costs:
I used to never order a single puzzle because the shipping cost for just one can be nearly as much as the puzzle itself! Yet I’m not always ready to spend $75 to get free shipping either. That’s why I really enjoy the Puzzle Warehouse’s “Puzzle of the Month” club because it means year-long free shipping. You’ll receive a puzzle each month with Puzzle of the Month club, and when you buy other items at any time, upon checkout you are asked if you’d like to hold that new purchase to ship with your puzzle of the month. Yes! This means I can order a single puzzle and have it sent to me later with my monthly shipment and there’s no shipping fee on it. I also keep a “Wish List” on puzzle warehouse, so when I get my email about my monthly selection, I can easily exchange it for a puzzle I really want. Win/win.
When Puzzles are Out of Stock:
The inventory at Puzzle Warehouse moves quickly, and due to limited warehouse space, only certain amounts of any one titles are brought in at a time. But most of our suppliers replenish rapidly. When a puzzle is out of stock, it’s likely to be back in stock within a week or two. Enter your email address on the out of stock page to be notified when it returns so you can place an order before it’s out again!
