Opps, my bad. I contacted Tom about the Add button and the Cart working and here is his response;

"Hi John,
Sorry no we are not yet open for business, thanks for alerting me that the cart was open. It will be probably another month yet before we have everything updated.

Cheers,

Thomas Johnson"

Sure glad I checked before I paid..

So... Mid-America IS NOT OPEN..

I still get the old web site when I go there, saying it will open in February.

Good morning Tom.

Yes, but the cart is working. And it appears checkout is working as well.. The home page still has the 2015 info. Has the same bonus iris as 2015 as well. The bonus add to the cart with no problem either.

I don't know if the prices are updated though, as last year's intros are all listed with last year's prices.

Tom noted in another thread that prices aren't updated and the new additions aren't there either. Think I'll leave everything in my cart for now.

Well, you're ready to pull the trigger as soon as it's updated. Hope all you selected are still available when it's open. Of course there may be some new ones added that you want to add! Whistling

I sent a message to them asking if they are open since all the buttons are functioning. I'll post the answer here.

Sure glad I checked before I paid.. Guess I'll clear the cart as well..

I am really excited about Mid-America, I first learned about it on this forum. I haven't narrowed down my wants from them yet. I definitely want to visit them this spring.

Our Iris Society usually orders from MidAmerica for our private member sale. I hope they continue to use them although last year's Superstition order was really nice also, big and with many increases.

Sadly the closest Iris Society to me is 2.5 hours away. I have been trying to narrow what I want at Mid-America. I made a note last year, and have noticed prices are being changed on the website(getting lowered, some dramatically)!

Niki, if you have a list of what you want you should post it to see if anyone has any to share first! That might help on trying to decide what you want from them.

They are certainly adding quite a few Iris and cutting prices, especially on the 2015 Black intros. For me, ones that last year were not affordable now become possible. Thank you Paul!
