So I try to place an order with Hobby King . . .
A trying experience with a crappy website but at last I'm ready to check out. Punch in card info = fail WTF? retry, fail again. Retry with a different card = fail. Call the "customer service" number. HA! No luck there customer service scores zero.
Note: both credit cards are 100% valid and in fact used today with no problem whatsoever.
So far Hobby King scores a zero.
