  • fairybelle
    Todays catch would have been another box of rubbish
  • nod
    :D Have you ordered one of their box deals before Fairybelle and been disappointed?
  • elegantegotist
    Can someone PM me what the catches are going to be ? I want to be spoiled.
  • smachel
    I'd like to know too. Will it really be worth our while to be online at that time???? :D
  • Brad
    It shall be interesting to see what COTD are going to offer us. :)
  • voteoften
    I would be very interested in what the COTD will be. Does anyone have any guesses? I ordered two boxes of the Bratz jewellry and it has not yet arrived. Has anyone received theirs yet?
  • nod
    Can someone PM me what the catches are going to be ? I want to be spoiled.
    Not sure anyone knows :confused: I sure don't

  • lilpretzel
    Far Out!!! It took me 25 mins to complete my transcation, keep getting time outs :mad: [SIZE=5] SOLD OUT TILL 8PM TONIGHT![/SIZE]
  • lisss
    When I first saw the deal I was thinking WOW With free postage obviously its worthwhile But if you pay $7.95 for postage + $1, I don't think it's that good. The jewelery in the pictures looks really ugly in my opinion - the stuff that they haven't been able to sell no matter how much it's discounted.
  • elegantegotist
    The jewellery is so not worth $100. Its very diva-ish. But you can't complain coz its only $1 !
  • fairybelle
    yeah they had this one before for $19.95 im sure... and i didnt think it was worth $100 VERY DIVA-esque
  • Keeys
    I ended up not being home and can't say I missed much. However if I'm around later I thought I'd try to get one to put under the xmas tree for someone who might not have a gift this xmas. For $1 I'm sure it will put a smile on someones face :) Another $1 deal tomorrow too by the looks of it ;)
  • nod
    http://www.cotd.com.au/images/jewel/jewel1.gif I wonder why they are going to get more stock at 8PM? :eek: Seems a bit odd
  • nod
    For a dollar it would make a great stocking filler for kids :) Personally I would not be paying more than that though - and I would be paying with Paypal!
  • lilpretzel
    Yes you have to go with paypal, can't complain at all for $1. If unsuitable Miss 7 will be getting it to add towards her dress up box. Great idea Keeys if they're good products I'll be sticking it under the KMart xmas tree. :)
  • fairybelle
    yeah i agree with you as well... would be good to give someone who wwont get anything for chrissy, they would appreciate it.
  • elegantegotist
    5 minutes left till the second lot is on sale.
  • Keeys
    soooooooooooooooooo slow getting this one to load :(
  • lisss

  • lisss
    I click "review payment" and then it times out every time... have done it about 10 times now and am soon going to give up and go and have dinner!!!
  • lisss
    I just waisted 40 minutes trying to get something i don't even really want..... im off! better luck to everyone else :D
  • Keeys
    still no luck here :(
  • lilpretzel
    Good idea, turn your pictures off in Internet options, this should give you that little bit of speed. :)
  • Keeys
    grrrrrrr I keep getting Your credit card was declined. Please try another card or contact your bank for more info. No response from the payment processor No response was received from the payment processor. Please contact the store owner for assistance.
  • yugf5m
    after so long, i finally got it and i've been capped too (net) i think people are giving up now so this is your best chance. i hope the jewellery is good. $1 is pretty worth it but all the time i put into this is worth so much more.
  • Keeys
    SOLD OUT!! Imissed out no idea why it wouldn't go through my credit card isn't even where money comes from for paypal its from my bank account. Wasn't ment to get one ...must be something else out there for me ;)
  • lisss
    I also missed out. It kept telling me my address was incorrect????? must be a system malfunction!
  • lilpretzel
    lisss, that happen to me, do you have unit or house in front of your address? Mine is like House 0 / 00 BuckScoop Lane in Paypal and COTD didn't like it so I had to change it to 0 / 00 BuckScoop Lane. I hope that makes sense ;)

  • Keeys
    I can't even get in :(
  • lilpretzel
    Nothing exciting, well that's what I reckon :cool: Not worth the stress, hopefully direct deals has a good bargain today @ 12.30pm http://www.buckscoop.com.au/deals/8623/deals-direct-lunch-time-quickie-dea
  • brooke
    hi guys. i got in yesterday-not sure if it will be worth it, but i got the bratz pack the other week as party gifts for my daughters birthday party and i was quite happy with that... not sure if today will be worth it considering i cant even get in without something screwing up, but for $1+free shipping with paypal it probably is, considering i still have my buckscoop cashback in my paypal account lol. gotta love the lack of information tho! it would be interesting to see what kind of cheap rubbish they are trying to offload...
  • Wally
    What a Sham Spent 50 mins to put in ALL my contact details - THEN to be advised "You have chosen the quantity higher than current stock level for item" - as we were limited to 1 - they had sold out in the time it took to enter those details
  • Keeys
    I missed out again ..maybe I'll be 3rd time lucky ;) :)
  • lisss
    lilpretzel;21600
    lisss, that happen to me, do you have unit or house in front of your address? Mine is like House 0 / 00 BuckScoop Lane in Paypal and COTD didn't like it so I had to change it to 0 / 00 BuckScoop Lane. I hope that makes sense ;)
    Nope! Mine is just a normal house number... there was nothing I could really change about my address, I tried a few things!!!
  • elegantegotist
    I wonder what brand the t-shirt is.
  • trevorf
    I'm not expecting much in terms of brand of shirt, just another shirt to add to the collection of random prints, good enough for me ... though haven't managed to get my order through yet :o
  • nod
    I wonder what brand the t-shirt is.
    Not sure but it is not exactly attractive in my opinion. And the sold out til 8pm message again - what is with that?
  • elegantegotist
    I don't like that colour either. It really washes you out coz its the same colour as your skin ? You would look naked from a distance. But once again, I should stop bitching because its $1. But would it really kill them to put up something nice ?!?
  • nod
    But once again, I should stop bitching because its $1. But would it really kill them to put up something nice ?!?
    I think they are offloading all the rubbish that they need to more - but as you say for a dollar.... can we really complain :eek: mmmmm yeah probably :D
  • Keeys
    hmm timing out lol
  • scatman00
    i got a sold out message 90 seconds into it, but have been timing out ever since :mad:
  • Keeys
    yeah that happened to me as well sold out now nothing :(
  • scatman00
    not sold out yet, now it justs times out when i hit bite me LoL
  • Keeys
    I can't even get to the front page :(
  • brooke
    im having the same problem :S i got to the page finally & got timed out hitting bite me as well... has it worked for anyone yet?
  • trevorf
    Mine gets as far as paypal, but then can never confirm payment ... like yesterday ^^
  • brooke
    this may sound silly but ive had more success getting to the page and into the shopping cart if i type /index.php after the site name and then hit refresh eg: catchoftheday.com.au/index.php then hit the refresh button. not sure why it works but it does for me...
  • Keeys
    almost gone ........button now rather than bite me ...still no luck here :(
  • scatman00
    "Sorry, but you can't buy this product again. You have reached the purchase limit per customer." Well maybe i did get one, even though it crashed and gave me an error?!?! Edit: ^^^ was in IE, my "friend that lives with me and has the same name"'s account in FF hasnt been successful yet.

    There's no real difference, since even without it you're loading the same pages anyway. Think you're just attempting to force a refresh.
  • trevorf
    Aw well, mine managed to get thru finally. COTD's SQL server is the one that's having issues, and it aint help that every page of theirs has that side panel too.
  • brooke
    yeh probably, but the other way has just been giving me th error page, this ones opened up every time. not too worried tho cz evry time i try & hit "almost gone" it tells me i have nothing in my shopping cart... oh well.
  • brooke
    they have just sold out now. i guess the jewellery from yesterday will have 2 do lol..
  • Keeys
    bloddy hell STILL NOTHING!!! I'd want to get something tomorrow ......mind you I won't be holding my breath :( :(
  • lindanat
    I just brought the bag of Pooki $29.95, 15 items, Ill let you know what i get.
  • MillerJ
    Has anyone seen today's Catch of the Day??? lol... What or Who is Pooki? If you haven't already seen their ]'Packing pooki' YouTube video on their website, it's a bit of a laugh.
  • lindanat
    10 mins to go anyone know what it is???
  • lindanat
    pffftttttt 3 browers and now nothing and i was in early all screens blank
  • lindanat

    anyone having any luck its awfully quite here now lol
    wtf... it's slowly showing me the SOLD OUT sign... I cant even see what d hell is on sale....
  • yugf5m
    thats the birthday item for 29.95 15 random items for 29.95. its a surprise i thought they had a $1 deal for today as well but i guess not. anyone gotten a pooki bag before today? is it good? or else i might not bother with this one.
  • lindanat
    I thought there was a super dooper sale today $1, First time for me was today but im confused because i got that deal a few hours ago so what is the live at noon deal then. Am i blonde lol ?
  • yugf5m
    it was up before 12 today ... maybe to ease their servers? pooki bag ... do i or don't i want it. i can't make up my mind ...and then by the time i do, it'll probably be sold out. :D

    That's really weird. I was on COTD site from 11:30am and the Pookie bag also was on sale. I thought they'll have another $1 deal. Oh well..

  • ScarletRubies
    I'd buy a bag of Pooki if there was free shipping, but there isn't, and I'm not in the mood to spend $36 on Pooki today! :) The whirlpool forums have people describing the contents of their Pooki bags (past bags) - some look OK, some fine, some tragic! I imagine this one will have a Bad Taste Bear & crappy jewellery! :)
  • lilpretzel
    I wouldn't even if they had free shipping, it will be just crap they need to get rid of. Now if it was $1 that's a different story, I would risk it :)
  • narut
    yugf5m;21855
    anyone gotten a pooki bag before today? is it good? or else i might not bother with this one.
    I harvested the following pookie item from whirlpool: ----------------------------------- Mouse wrist guard thingy Aqua Nappies – Nappy and floaty all in one. lol Some sort of girly gift set Box of chocolate bars Football DVD Trivia Game Girls Head Band Pair of sox Diary USB 5-in-1 Card Reader USB Fan Pretty Lame Milhouse -------------------------------- mouse arm rest pad thing Aqua Nappies Some sort of handtowel or something in pink Box of chocolate bars Football DVD Trivia Game some sort of kitchen grater thing Pair of socks USB 6-in-1 Card Reader USB Fan FM Radio with a Torch ------------------------------------------ A microwavable pie dish (semi useful, as crockery usually is) A football trivia dvd (somewhat useless, though it does have sheedy on the cover) Electronic scissors (novel, but useless... possibly dangerous) 6 in 1 card reader (semi decent, but I now have more card readers than cards) Megaman figurine (useless, it's not even megaman, it's some random villain no one's heard of) Beanie (Questionable... looks somewhat dirty... I wouldn't wear it) A garlic peeler (aka small bit of rubber tube, pretty useless) Red hair thing that girls wear (by girls i mean 6 year old girls, useless) and a davinci code organiser, a yearless one (not that anyone would be caught dead using a davinci code anything at this point in time... maybe if it was still 2005) Well at least there aren't any nappies... I wouldn't be able to explain that to my family.
  • nod
    I think this is pretty disappointing for the Birthday bash week! Just a lot of stuff they needed to offload. Lots of mystery boxes that they could fill with whatever they please. I certainly have not taken out my CC :(
  • elegantegotist
    Yes personally I like to know what I'm getting.
  • lisss
    I've heard so many people complaining about the contents of their pooki bags, I wouldn't risk it. What a dissapointment after the other stuff this week!
  • ninkasi

    The trick was you had to click on the "review" button and then you would get to the page with the "confirm" button. Threw me as well. Anyhow, bought both $1 deals and the pookie bag. The costume jewels arrived today and there were a couple of things that were "ok" according to my wife who's going to use 'em as christmas presents. The rest was "ugly as" and definitely not worth the RRP. Still, for $1 my 2 & 4 year old girls have got some more things for playing "dress ups". Looking forward to seeing what the post will bring in the next couple of days!
  • ninkasi
    MillerJ;21850
    Has anyone seen today's Catch of the Day??? lol... What or Who is Pooki?
    From a ]previous sale: "def: - Pooki is LG’s daughter’s word for C**P and the bag of Pooki is an exciting random assortment of 10 objects, goodies and just general stuff from our warehouse. Yes, this is just like one of those carnival bags you used to win for great hoop throwing skills, or a pro duck hunt score. Only this time the goodies are hand picked down in our warehouse and arrive in a box, rather than a bag. All you have to do is click on “Bite” before it sells out!" Basically, it's a lucky dip. Likelihood is a lot of it will be "pooki" but you may be lucky. I bought one today ($30 for 15 things, so $2 a pop not including postage), so I guess I'll know soon!

What do you think?
