RFD’s can be the ultimate enemy of an individual who lacks self control, and likes to shop.
This past Friday, April 11th, I was doing my regular browsing when I came across THIS thread.
I have been eying the Canon SD 750 for SUCH a long time now. Except I couldn’t do it, cause I somewhat lacked the costs to fund it. (If only I have stopped buying all those miscellaneous products, then I wouldn’t have…esh…) Anyway I jumped right on it, thinking…well…seeing as I am still a bit on the fence, I could always return it if I don’t want it, when I eventually receive it.
But no. That’s not how it went.
I placed my order on Staples.
ACTUALLY I tried to place my order on Staples.
It took several refreshes on my screen, to get the price needed. Though I had 40 mins left til the deal was dead, when I clicked on the link, it would show 288.96, instead of the 100 dollar off price. Then when I was finally able to get the 188 price, and checked out (read: “TRIED” again…) It would check out at the 288 price again! So I had to repeat the entire process, going back, adding it to the cart, checking out…I probably did this for a good 10-15 minutes, until it finally showed up at the right price on the checkout. I clicked, and immediately received an email confirming my purchase at the 188 price. THANK GOODNESS.
I received it on Tuesday, though everyone else was able to get theirs Monday morning. (If only I were able to order it during the day…At least I caught the deal :) )
I wrote to them about the messed up system, when checking out. They said it might have been because of the number of people trying to score the deal at that time, before it ends. But they said that they would look into it in the future, to prevent poor girls like me who desperately need to buy it at that price! HAHA…
Now I have to hope that it won’t drop too much more…and make me regret buying it totally on impulse…of RFD’s has on me…
“That Was Easy…”
Perhaps my review on the camera will come?
