CatchofTheDay - 3 day Birthday Sale - Thurs=Catchathon, Fri=IT Sale

27 October 2009

Starts Wed at midday. I think there will be 3 days of the sale as its their 3rd birthday.

One hot catch every hour.

Good luck getting through as no doubt the server will crash, again.

They are advertising some of the specials to be:

-$1 bottles of wine
-$1.95 movie tickets
-10c chuppa chups
-$4.95 RC Heli

    My bet is the server will crash and a lot of people will get very annoyed.
  • Keeys
    I'm wondering what the postage on 10c chupa chup will be?? ;) :)
  • kazyazy
    It must be free post on the chupa chups... $9.95 postage just won't work.. The pub I go to gives them out for free so I stock up when I go there haha :D
  • ExoticFamiliarity
    lol, once they had some cheap make-up there and the postage ended up being SO high I didn't bother... SO will be interested to see what postage will be!

    Our local pub has free lollies too. It's to help the smokers have something to do as they can't smoke inside anymore.

    Yep true- deals arent spectacular, but id much prefer these deals to a dirt cheap wii which they only have 2 of in stock and which causes the site to crash :rolleyes: Wine & chupa chups not bad so far. As ntowill says, they have also put stricter quantity limits than usual on the items.
  • Cherrybabe
    I got a 6 pack of the wine! ^_^ so far so good...

    believe me, not worth it I bought the same deal when it was free, pay $5.95 postage , and what came was an old english beach cricket team shirt. The word reebok is on the shirt in small print. edit: sorry by old i don't mean used, I just mean way outdated style

    Now they're flogging beach cricket sets til midday... I managed to get a movie ticket, though like the rest of you I had trouble with the last page too. I payed via paypal, but the 'confirm' page crashed on me. I refreshed the page though, it still didn't come up but a couple of minutes later I got an email from COTD confirming my order/shipping. Sooo... I guess if you have trouble confirming your orders, it's worth trying 'Refresh'. If it doesn't work, no harm done I guess!
