I ordered from a deal offered in BB I'd did so just after the person posted the deal.  I looked at the date and time of their post.  I did the usual Post there and PM.

The book is still saying waiting for member.  It times out tomorrow.  I PM again explaining my concern about it timing out and rolling over to fifo. The person has read both my PM orginal and second reminder and still hasn't responded back to me or marked book to mail.

Any other suggestions?  or should I just cancel request?

Id punt if it were me since they read both your pm's and haven't done anything.

If the next person prints the wrapper right away she would not be able to cancel at that point. Hope the person with the deal will respond.

I would cancel before it rolled over to the next person. It would be just my bad luck to have the next person be someone who accepts and prints immediately and I'd end up paying a full credit for a book I only wanted on a deal.

Yes, too risky. I'd cancel. If the person has a legitimate excuse, they can always contact you again and re-offer the deal.

Like others--I'd make sure to cancel before the order rolls over.  I'd probably send one final PM to the person who offered the deal when I cancelled--explaining why I'm cancelling and letting them know if they 're still interested in the deal to let me know so that I can re-order the book.
