My rug was shipped on time and I knew it would arrive then because of the tracking emails. I really like the free rug pad option too, since I have hardwood floors. The rug doesn't slide around and we haven't had any problems with people tripping on it (yet.) It is rather thick, but we knew that, and it feels really great. Such a neat rug.
