Honestly, I think in general it would be better for the plants to have it in Jan. Or Feb. Because, as Peter D'amato says , it is usually better to repot or divide plants in the beginning of the growing season because the plants save up their energy through the winter to survive, then use the energy to grow again. If they are divided or transplanted in Jan or Feb, they can use some of that energy to recover from shipping or repotting shock. But if they are sent just as they are going dormant, they will use a lot of energy for recovery instead of staying healthy during the winter.
But, as waxy said, it might help to have it before Christmas or honuka, etc. This is kind of funny, but usually around that time I am saving for meizzwangs updated winter sale list.
Another really good point that philicula made is that people who live in colder climates can contact the seller and request that they ship the plant later, in warmer temperatures.

From my experience with both the CCPS and NASC auctions, early to mid spring time is a much better time to have an auction. More people repotting and dividing. Fall is a better time to get rid of seeds.

sanguinearocks101: What are good plants to make hybrids with S. luecophylla with? Im looking for dark colors.

adaetz100: Sarracenia purpurea tends to add a lot of red/purple to its offspring, but there are some lovely dark red flava x leucophylla crosses too. Look up 'Royal Ruby' if you're not familiar with it already--it's a natural flava x leuco hybrid
