Banana Hobby lured me into placing an order on their new website (bonus 3% off). I had the 20% off July code in hand and was looking to see what my order total would be for a 1400mm zero and 1400mm stuka (based on all the fantastic comments from owners on this site). Well, the new website doesn't allow for code entry upon returning to the order screen from PayPal... and my order was placed straight away. The old website would come back from PayPal and allow you to enter promo codes before order finalization. I was guesstimating my order total around $300 with 20% off... well, because I couldn't enter my promo code my order total is $380. I immediately fired off emails to Banana Hobby to cancel my order to no avail. So now I am left trying to cancel order through PayPal... wish me luck and I hope everyone else proceeds with caution...
