Nintendo Wii $199 @ COTD B'day sale 29th October PLUS a load of other items

Posted By: nod, posted 2008/10/25 18:52
You really need to set aside some time on Wednesday to watch the daily dal release for COTD
Every hour they are having a new catch with the Nintendo Wii for $199 as one example
4GB Nano iPod at $99
PS2 $99

I suspect the site will get a hammering so you will need to be organised
Expiry date:2008/10/30
594°-+
$199.00

    Wow! Hot, nod!!!

    You're right, the site would probably go under from the traffic!

    No chance for me with my lousy connection (I seem to dc alot nowadays...we are now thinking perhaps it's the router as we have too many wireless around the house!)

    I would be lucky if I snap up a broom on the day! :p (Or whatever that yellow thingy is..mop ? haha)

    -----

    ETA: oh yeah it's a mop lol!
  • frogduck2008/10/25 19:27:28
    i wouldn't mind some of that stuff, but i'll be at university when it starts :( until 6pm :( so i'll probably be missing out on like.. all of it
  • Wally2008/10/25 19:31:59
    It will be a lottery who gets thru on the special deals, last time they had something similar the cotd site was like treacle with page freezes galore!
  • fairybelle2008/10/25 19:49:00
    Id imagine it would be like the Jetstar site when they have the $1 flight sales. Just sitting there for hours pressing the refresh button..
    I wouold love to get a wii though.. it would be excellent I will be tryng to get through.
  • mouldgirl2008/10/25 19:58:02
    Worth it though. Any ideas what generation the ipod will be ?

    the picture looks like the latest generation of ipod nano.
  • melissanj2008/10/25 22:40:04
    i wonder if they will give a 12 month warranty
  • kingyubbo2008/10/25 22:49:00
    woweesss all great bargains. The Nintendo Wii and the Nano do it for me. Depending on what camera, GPS and model DVD player it is I'm in. Judging by the pictures, that Samsung DVD player does DivX as well!!!!

    Will have to see if the pictures are correct though.
  • melissanj2008/10/25 22:52:13
    i want all of them!!!!!....im not that greedy....am i?

    Why do you need a Steam mop? :p
  • fairybelle2008/10/25 23:25:29
    Hey i was eyeing off the steam mop too .. I have house with no carpet only wooden floors so all i do is mop, they look great.
  • khaz0r2008/10/25 23:58:02
    hey, I was looking at the iPod nano and I found something interest and it might be misleading.

    It says the iPod nano is going for $99. From the image they show us it seems as though it's the latest model. HOWEVER, the new models come in the 8GB and 16GB. On COTD they say it is 4GB, so I have a feeling that it might be the older model...
  • winniblu2008/10/26 01:19:01
    I always wanted a steam mop.....I got one and it has not come out of the box......and that was over a year ago!
  • kingyubbo2008/10/26 01:44:54

    There are 4GB Models of the New 4G Nano's selling at JBs, Myers and other retail outlets for between $140-$170. They're limited stock of 4GB chips that Apple had left over from the previous generation.
  • inferno2008/10/26 03:06:49
    im going to order 50 wii's and sell them all!!!!!!
  • khaz0r2008/10/26 03:10:39

    I think there would be a limit on the number of purchases per customer. But good luck, the number of traffic on that website will be horrendus.
  • inferno2008/10/26 03:15:04
    yeah i'll be refreshing like crazy! any excuse to procrastinate ... like i am now.

    Why do you need a Steam mop? :p


    ummmm a new way to straighten my hair???

    my bathroom has tiles!!!! oh and my laundry...the rest is cream carpet *shudder*....well at least it started out as cream carpet
  • admin2008/10/26 12:01:30
    Thats a stunner price on the Wii, but I bet you they will only have a grand total of two of them out at that price or something silly like that
  • MamaK2008/10/26 16:56:03
    I wouldn't trust getting anything big from COTD and dealing with their warranty claims. Great prices but not worth dealing with them for me.

    The iPod is OK as the warranty is from Apple themselves. The Wii is a worry though however could also be a Nintendo external vendor warranty.
  • lilpretzel2008/10/26 22:53:15
    This will be interesting :whistling:

    Good Luck if your able to catch a Bargain :D
  • nod2008/10/27 11:07:23
    I agree. It will be a very interesting exercise. One question I have about the ipods is how on earth did they get permission from Apple to sell them so cheap? Are they being ordered directly from Apple then sent to the customer or have they been purchased by COTD already?? :whistling:

    I wonder if QQQ the cotd rep will turn up to answer any questions :D

    Be very careful that they aren't going to be [SIZE=4][COLOR=Red]refurbished [/COLOR][/SIZE]products ;)

    Yeh I am afraid of them very same thing.
  • weaijiet2008/10/28 16:01:06
    How long does it take for delivery? anyone had any experience with COTD ... ?

    It takes approx 2 weeks. I've bought a few items from them before. And i'm waiting on my mini-x max speakers to come =D
  • lilpretzel2008/10/28 17:07:54
    Oh when did the cashback go up?

    :)
  • frogduck2008/10/28 17:32:59
    Hmm.. for the Ipods, I was thinking that they only sell the new nano chromatics in 8gb and 16gb now? so maybe the 4gb ones are obsolete. I'm just guessing though :) don't take my word for it
  • wombatblue2008/10/28 17:42:28
    the 4gb chromatic nanos are limited edition, I just bought one from Kmart for my daughter for Christmas as 4gb is plenty of space for her, they are still available from some shops but are no longer on the apple website.

    Actually the 4GB are new and 'limited'. Apparently the 4GB chips used in the older models will be put into the chromatic series until they sell out. So yeah, they are just reusing old stock.
  • LisaMaree2008/10/28 21:25:11
    Does anyone know anything about the tom tom? Is this a good price?? Looking at one for my DH for Christmas.

    Lisa
  • admin2008/10/28 21:44:00
    Its hard to tell which of the tom tom's it is LisaMaree so hard to give comment on apart from the general statements that Tom Tom have a good rep etc.

    The site will take a battering today :p Not holding my breath either to get anything! lol

    If anyone succeeds to get anything.. PLEASE POST YOUR BARGAINS! Would be fun to read feedback once you receive your item/s !!! hehehe
  • LisaMaree2008/10/29 11:19:03
    They have at least 6 Wii's lol, there is a vid in their blog!! (or maybe they are just empty boxes :rolleyes: )
  • melissanj2008/10/29 11:24:44
    in another forum ( no i havent been cheating!!!) QQQQ answered a couple of questions and said that there is plenty of stock.....so maybe even 7 or 8 wii's! :p

    Still they avoid answering the questions about refurbished goods :(

    Im excited to see what they have for offer anyways
  • lilpretzel2008/10/29 11:32:28
    QQQ actually has gone AWOL melissa if it's the same forum I'm reading ;)

    I guess can't handle the pressure of the members comments :whistling:

    [SIZE=2]ummmm I wonder how many new members this had made for them?[/SIZE]
  • fairybelle2008/10/29 11:32:33
    Yeah im not holding my breath, but i really really really want one of those damn wii's
  • lindanat2008/10/29 11:37:43
    haha its 11.37 and its already starting to crash, i just got a sorry to many people online try and again later lol
  • voteoften2008/10/29 11:39:49
    I think it would be unlikely that the wii will be on at noon. They will want to milk that part of the promo as long as they can. They will probably put the mop or something like that up there first. Maybe the camera...
  • fairybelle2008/10/29 11:40:06
    Your joking... really.... already.... there is no hope then :-)
  • lilpretzel2008/10/29 11:46:12
    Then image will be burned into our brain!

  • LisaMaree2008/10/29 11:49:12
    ^^^^^was coming in to say the same thing^^^^^^ I assume on the hour every hour the same thing is going to happen
  • melissanj2008/10/29 11:49:45
    ouch so much for their reassurance on the other forum that the site wouldnt crash!

    btw postage for the wii is 9.95 (told by QQQQ)
  • khaz0r2008/10/29 11:51:43
    Would that mean all shipping will be $9.95? I hope so =]
  • voteoften2008/10/29 11:56:40
    QQQQ - is the wii refurb or new and what about the warranty?
  • Leonqt2008/10/29 11:57:09
    site is down...great :(
  • admin2008/10/29 11:57:10
