  2. Anyone had success with the 2021 Black Friday coupon code?

    I'm trying to buy a 0 degree Bandit, and I keep getting "COUPON "BLACKFRIDAY2021" DOES NOT EXIST!" It's 10:16PM eastern time, so even if they are in central time, the 9PM sale should be active. From...

    Hey, fellow left lay-er here. You can't reverse the Wooki (or at least it's not designed for that). When you buy a Wooki, you have the option of buying a custom Wooki with a reverse lay. If you buy a...
