    Just a heads up, you might find something worth buying :twisted: Just love this message....
    [FONT=Arial][SIZE=2]Dear Members, I'd like to take this opportunity to firstly thank all of you who visited Catch Of The Day for our 2nd Birthday Bash. To say we were overwhelmed by the turnout would be an understatement. However, whilst we are flattered by the response, we are also very disappointed that our servers could not cope with the traffic influx. For every member that managed to access the site, there was one who could not. We apologise to all of you who were unsuccessful in logging on and we appreciate how frustrating that would have been. We are working to remedy the situation and serve you better. Today is our Catchathon, another big event on our calendar. For those who are new to Catch Of The Day, The Catchathon is our monthly offering of some of our most recent past catches. It's another opportunity to catch a past bargain. As always, it begins at midday. As a way of saying thank you for an incredible 2 years, we have organised for ALL members, FREE SHIPPING with Paypal, ALL DAY for all orders over $50. Once again, thank you for all your support in making Catch Of The Day one of Australia's most popular websites. :whistling: This year we will continue to bring you unbeatable deals, each and everyday, at midday. Thank You, [/SIZE][/FONT] [FONT=Arial][SIZE=2]QQQ[/SIZE][/FONT]

    LOL! I'm boycotting them too...didn't get a thing I wanted!!! But luckily I didn't sit around all day..else I would be pulling out my hair! hahaha ETA: All the stuff on offer is probably leftover junk nobody wants - that's what's on offer everytime there's a catchathon :p
  • lilpretzel
    Anybody else finding the site very slowwwwwwwwwwww?
  • voteoften
    I can't get the site up. Anyone else having trouble?
  • frogduck
    i can't get in too :) edit: i can only get the left side bar thing with the timer on it to load :S
  • AussieMarkMelb
    They have none of the items available from yesterday for sale. So dont waste your time guys =) Can I ask wasn't their cashback 6% before? Now it has changed to 3.6% or am I going crazy?
  • frogduck
    alright, it looks like none of the birthday bash items are there, just had a look through :) don't waste your time people :D edit: hi five aussiemarkmelb!

    I think it was something like that, they stopped the cashback program for a little bit than restarted with a rate of 0.09% :eek: The new rate 3.6% has only been around for a few days I think :D
  • AussieMarkMelb
    ah thanks, hah I thought maybe they decreased it just for the birthday bash.

    just as heads up for people buying from COTD... if you're buying over $50 worth of items and you want free shipping its best to click on the "checkout with paypal" button right down the bottom of your shopping cart.... i tried clicking the normal checkout and it charged me shipping even though I selected paypal as the payment option. So save yourself the hassle! * the site is extremely slow but be patient, i had to wait ages for everything to be added into my cart one by one, but everything seems to have gone through fine!
  • melissanj
    nothing too interesting on there to bother with
  • Wally
    COTD are shysters of the 1st order IMHO If you buy from their site for the CatchaThon items the sale is purchased thru their sister site Daily Deals - so you will not be getting any cashback!!! Ain't it amazing how the site is working really smoothly - even with all the past cotd bargains that got away in the past grrr
  • lilpretzel
    Wally I just tested this again and the purchases stays on the COTD site :confused: members will receive cashback.
  • Wally
    ok I believe you but when I went thru the Paypal checkout on the Make Payment Page I used the link entitled ]Cancel and return to DAILYDEALS.COM.AU. to exit! :eek::thinking:
  • lilpretzel
    oh that's interesting but I think we should still be right for the cashback as the purchase is made on the COTD site. I will have to ask nod ;) Thanks for that info.
  • Wally
    I just went back and checked the Sales checkout process again Whe you choose the Paypal option on the page that you enter your Paypal membership details it clearly says: PayPal securely processes payments for DAILYDEALS.COM.AU. Pay with PayPal in a couple of clicks. Maybe different with direct Credit Card debits on the COTD site - but might pay to check the details IMHO
  • lilpretzel
    Just checked my Paypal statement for last month Wally and yep it has DAILYDEALS.COM.AU these all tracked with no problems. I've never noticed that before. :)
  • AussieMarkMelb
    DailyDeals and COTD are owned by the same people One and the same.. But seperate.. if that makes sense hah. In the sense that if you ask DailyDeals for help with a COTD purchase they will say No and Vice Versa =) You will find most COTD products sold on Dailydeals at an increased cost.
