Sale items + shipping is cheaper than normal item + free shipping.

Refunds don't take months, you have to know how things work and be aware of any factors that could delay shipping/delivery. You can request FT to ask their shipping agent to file an investigation for a parcel after 3 weeks of it being shipped instead of waiting for FT to ask you wait more time and hopefully your package is delivered, then going through the same thing a few more times before they request a trace. And it doesn't take 60 days to trace a package.

You don't have to wait until the sale starts to buy the Swag II, buy it cheaper at SM and it will be delivered faster than if you ordered it from here.
