    [SIZE=4] [SIZE=2] The prices of the movie tickets look good BUT don't forget you must pay shipping... Might not be a bargain after all. I wonder if your only getting the DSi console? $249.00 isn't a bargain if so.... Not worth the hassle if anything goes wrong with it.... For our new members, I recommond you have a read of what happen with their Birthday Bash! :whistling: [/SIZE][/SIZE]]EXPIRED - Nintendo Wii $199 @ COTD B'day sale 29th October PLUS a load of other items [SIZE=4] Don't say I didn't WARN YOU!!![/SIZE] http://img9.imageshack.us/img9/4976/llantistressqq4.gif

  • ciciyang
    I probably sound like an idiot, but I'm new to both buckscoop and catch of the day. Is COTD pretty much luck (whether the pages loaded for you or not)? And does it count you buying it as soon as you click on BITE NOW or all the way through to the end of payment as well? Just wondering if I should get credit card details and everything all ready. Also, can you win more than one thing per day?

    Hi, Quick Answer: - You can consider it luck, but it's more first in best dressed cause they have limited quantities. - It seems that by adding it to the cart doesnt mean they reserve it for you, cause I've had the item in my cart and after entering in my payment details the status was changed to sold out.
  • ciciyang
    Thanks hys. Sounds like I haven't got much of a chance but doesn't mean I can't keep trying. :)

    yep :) well if we see anyone else going to the movies by themselves in the next couple of weeks we will know who bought the cheap tickets :p

    Welcome to Buckscoop! You have picked the wrong day to try and buy something from COTD, it's not normally like this BUT as hys stated " You can consider it luck " it just depends what they have up for Sale on any given day ;) Some day's the product don't sell out, other times they can Sell Out in minutes. I find and so do many other Buckscoop member's, having a ]Paypal account is a must for shopping online + you can receive your Buckscoop cashback paid directly into it. Have a look around and when possible have a read here - ]A NEW BUCKSCOOPER?? Please ensure you READ this carefully

    Me too. $6.95 postage for the PS2. That seems reasonable
  • voteoften
    is the ps2 a good deal?
  • Keeys
    Sold Out!!
  • voteoften
    sold out at 3 past
  • wailam81
    Hmm, yea, it is a good deal, selling around $200 normally I think. Didn't buy thou..got one already!
  • khaz0r
    I was lucky enough to grab the PS2. As wailam81 said, the PS2's are selling for around $200 normally. Shipping was $6.95 on top of the $99, so great bargain.

    http://www.catchoftheday.com.au/images/img/soldout.jpg
  • nod
    :D sold out already ... guess some one wanted them at that price
  • kennethkoh
    I dont think the DSI is that much of a bargain.. 1. you cant pick the colour you want 2. price diff is roughly 20 - 30 dollars (which isnt much) 3. warranty claim might be a pain in the ass :) no thanks! anyone getting the dsi?
  • lilpretzel
    Nope, I too also said it wasn't a bargain and would be a pain if it stopped working. Very strange, they had 100 and the website didn't even slow down for me, when I purchased the lipsticks it was crawling :whistling:

  • femme17

    Thanks for the tips lilpretzel. I do have a paypal account, but I'm pretty clueless about using it. Will probably need to get more familiar with it now so I can make more online purchases without worrying about identity theft. I've heard about COTD, but never visited the site until I saw it today on buckscoop. I was going for the Playstation earlier but since I had just started my COTD account today, I was too slow having to enter in all the details for the first time, so obviously didn't win, but got the GPS so I'm stoked! As for buckscoop, I skimmed over the New Buckscooper thread when I first joined last week and the Buckscoop cashback was interesting but I never thought I'd buy much of anything online. I will go and have another read since it seems I enjoy shopping online as well.

  • mrdravid
    So what are the chances that they are not selling the full number of items until a later time slot?
  • lilpretzel
    A BIG FAT chance... The only thing left is the game ;) Maybe you might see some of today's items in tomorrows sale. http://www.catchoftheday.com.au/images//baitathon/baitathon_writeup_catchathon.jpg
  • mrdravid
    Yeah it looks like Trivial Pursuit for 11!

  • lilpretzel
    Did anybody else buy the Onkaparinga baby blanket? I received mine but wasn't expecting PINK!!! I guess that's why they didn't list the colours. It's packed in a plain clear bag marked Cotton Throw, do you think it's original :confused: I don't want to open it as it was purchased for my daughters teacher whom I now hope has a baby girl :rolleyes: It does look like the original blanket I found on the web. http://img38.imageshack.us/img38/1197/onkapink.jpg
  • geo78
    have a read here: http://forums.whirlpool.net.au/forum-replies.cfm?t=1086881&p=37 cotd apparently refunds customers who contact them without asking for the item back....

  • lilpretzel
    Thank you again Geo, not sure how I missed that on Whirlpool. I just knew it was to good to be true with COTD, again they disappoint me. They didn't have the correct amount to send out than it's they were sent two types of blankets :rolleyes: Give me a break please. This is the correct blanket a person on whirlpool received, how many other customers did they do this to? Quite a few going by whirlpool :spiteful: My blanket is well and truly only worth $2.00 http://img10.imageshack.us/img10/3509/c9571sbl.jpg
