    They've added another item to the baitathon on Catch of the Day - a Jag mens dress shirt $5
  • geo78
    i have to say i'm pretty impressed with the "new" COTD. first such event for their birthday (http://www.buckscoop.com.au/forums/deals-bargains-coupons-vouchers-cashback/11997-expired-nintendo-wii-199-cotd-bday-sale-29th-october-plus-load-other-items.html) was a disaster, but they have improved a lot for their first baitathon (http://www.buckscoop.com.au/forums/deals-bargains-coupons-vouchers-cashback/16417-expired-catchoftheday-baitathon-one-crazy-catch-every-hour-got-lucky.html). no so many crashes of the server, items were delivered very fast and when an issue arised with one of the items, it was handled well by COTD. it's good to see a business learning from their mistakes and improving for the benefit of customers. their representative on whirlpool is very helpful and responsive to suggestions from customers. all in all, I'm looking forward for this Baitathon #2.

  • Keeys

  • ruthiech80
    yay, wireless set coming my way!
  • fry888chip
    Server already down :( Does anyone know the model for the camera?
  • snoozin99
    so is that a good deal with the wireless set?
  • ruthiech80
    1 x HP Wireless Multimedia Keyboard & Mouse () = $9.95 ------------------------------------------------------
  • snoozin99
    doesn't matter got sold out at checkout
  • snoozin99
    does anyone know how much there is of each item at all?
  • cookie087
    Each item has different quantities but im not too sure what they are. It did say on the advertisement how many of the advertised items, but i cant find that on the site now.
  • snoozin99
    deal or no deal dvd up for free ($4.95 shipping)...is it worth $4.95? LOL - 1000 of these
  • cookie087
    Next Item: Deal or No Deal - Interactive DVD Game Hosted by Andrew O'Keefe. FREE + Shipping!
  • lisss
    I can't even get through... whoever said COTD have improved spoke too soon :/
  • ruthiech80
    Deal or No Deal DVD games another point for me lol
  • cookie087
    I press the refresh button when there is just over 1 min to go, by the time the server refreshes you can see whats up, page looks slightly mixed up, but scroll down and theres the next item. Might be worth a shot if your having dificulties getting through.
  • melscott28
    when i go to "BITE ME" i get page servers down. Its worse then waiting in a queue at the shops, ive even got the screaming kids.
  • sparrow
    Says ALMOST GONE now.
  • melscott28
    NOOOO I want one for my sons xmas present, thought would be a good family game to play xmas day for quiet time.
  • sparrow
    Hang in there, still says Almost Gone. Good luck.
  • melscott28
    omg i entered card details got to shipping press confirm and it went to server full page again. now what do i do? if i keep refreshing will it keep processing and charging card lots of times?
  • cookie087
    Not to sure, but id think it hasnt gone through. If it did theyll have to refund you. Maybe reload the home page and try again instead of keep pressing refresh?
  • snoozin99
    check to see if confirm email of your purchase in your email inbox
  • melscott28
    No email. i went to home page and then account and got the same server page. Im not winning.
  • cookie087
    Sold out now
  • melscott28
    :cry: Unfair. I have wasted 45 mins trying to buy something that didnt really matter - im so stupid but i bet i do the same for the next hour.
  • ruthiech80
    I ordered 10, so if anyone else wants any, send me a message lol
  • snoozin99
    I think it easier to pay via paypal when they have these catch every hour days...more likely to go through and quicker
  • cookie087
    If you purchase the 10, would it be $4.95 postage each or for the lot? Sorry new to catch of the day and havent purchased multiples before.

    ruthiech80;93667
    the 10 cost me 23.70 postage
    WOW i thought it was per item
  • cookie087
    Thanks for that... here comes the next catch...
  • sparrow
    I think it's something like 50% off for each additional item or something???
  • melscott28
    12MP Olympus Digital Camera FE-3010, 2.7" LCD Screen, Li-Ion Battery $99
  • cookie087
    This ones not for me... Does anyone know a list of all the other items that will be going up? I'm presuming there will be 24 items, one for each hour?
  • ruthiech80
    3 in a row, must have luck today, hmm, lotto ticket time maybe lol

    Theres a list in the first post - normally it ends around 9pm - so I would think they would do everything left on the list (which will take it to 8pm) - then one final item (something cheap that they have thousands of) for all those who missed out on the main items and want to feel like they haven't wasted the day and not got anything.
  • fry888chip
    The camera sold out within 3 minutes... that was fast :(
  • sparrow
    I think there was a free phone case, mens shirt might have been jag brand, and I remember nintendo wii or similar. Can't remember anything else.

    Oh, take no notice of me, I forgot that it was listed a few pages ago.:o
  • snoozin99
    Nothing has interested me so far....except hubby might of wanted the wireless set.
  • cookie087
    Oh i get it! I didnt realise that was the only items coming up for "biting". I thought that was just an example. WOW, it makes much more sense now!
  • snoozin99
    EEE PC 1000HE Netbook up next according to twitter
  • ruthiech80
    Any one know how much the netbook is going to be?
  • lisss
    Missed the camera, missed the dvd (which I didnt even want but thought I might as well buy to give as a gift...) I don't have time to just sit here and keep refreshing as I'm at work. How annoying :(
  • snoozin99
    Dunno but they last sold them for around $600 all up on cotd - say they have RRP of $899 (well catch does anyway) http://www.catchoftheday.com.au/past_product.php?past_product_id=1121
  • cookie087
    Yeah $899 is RRP for this laptop, however it was a first quarter laptop (meaning Jan-Mar09) therefore you will prob be able to get it cheaper if u find a shop that wants to clear stock. For anyone interested stats are; •Intel Atom N280 Processor @ 1.66GHz, 512KB L2 cache, 667MHz FSB •1GB of DDR2 Memory •10.2 inch LED-backlit LCD (1024 x 600 resolution) •Intel Mobile 945GSE Chipset •160GB Seagate Momentus 5400.5 Hard Drive •10GB Online Eee Storage (free for 18 months) •802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi •Bluetooth 2.0 •1.3 megapixel webcam with Digital Array Microphone •4-in-1 Card Reader (SD, SDHC, Memory Stick and MS-PRO) •VGA Output •USB 2.0 x 3 •RJ-45 (Ethernet 10/100) •Headphone / Mic Input Jacks •3.2 Pounds (with Battery Installed) •6 Cell Li-ion High Density 8700mAh Battery (Up To 9.5 Hours of Computing) •Windows XP Home Edition •Color Options: Pearl White, Black, Blue, Golden
  • cookie087
    And there must be more items than those listed on page one, as the Netbook wasnt on there (unless im going crazy - which is possible!)... I hope theres some more good bargains that i want - havent needed or been interested in anything so far!

    typically the label is removed when the clothing is being rejected and returned to be disposed of through an outlet or something like this.
  • ruthiech80
    yay, back in the flow now lol, only missed the EEE (by choice lol)
