EDIT: As this is the first google result for "spendbitcoins down?" I'm editing it to link to:

http://spendbitcoins.com.au so people searching will hopefully find it.

I have brought my brother, a graphic designer and web developer, on as a partner in the business and there are big changes coming.

As such, Spend Bitcoins will be down for one week for renovations from 0300 UTC 04 February 2012. When it relaunches at 0300 UTC 11 February 2012 it will be a much prettier site which is much easier to navigate and use. As I have not had a single day off since the original launch last May, I will be unreachable during this week, but will answer all emails ASAP after relaunch.

In the weeks following the relaunch, we will be rolling out features that allow you to spend bitcoins on sites that don't accept them without even coming to our site. We hope to make bitcoins just as easy (if not easier) to spend as any other payment method all over the web.

This is great to hear.  Sad you will be down for a week, but the improvements sound awesome.

Jeremy has been the most reliable BTC related business person I have yet run across.

Thanks Jeremy,

Your prices are the best around right now. I can hold off on the purchase until the new site is ready if that means a more seamless process. Can you tell us if your relative prices will change on the new site? If its going to cost relatively more I will definitely order right now but if not I will wait.

Our prices for actually SPENDING bitcoins will remain relatively the same. Once we get our spending tool (will allow you to to skip our site and just spend directly on the site you are shopping on) ready (which will probably still be in development when we relaunch) then there will be a charge for merely ordering a gift code on our site (though still no charge for using the spending tool to actually SPEND on the site). Haven't hammered down what that charge will be, but it will be something.

Looking forward to seeing the new site.  My prior transactions have all gone smoothly with you.

...and we're back.

Lots more to do, but the main functions from the old site should now be working on the new site. Let us know what you think!
