Yeah I kept refreshing the screen and somewhere around 8:59:30ish the add the cart came on.  I think it might have been the first time I was lucky enough to get one on sale.

Placed my order at 9:02 (est) but have to keep refreshing the page now to see what is selling out.  Wish they would post how many of each item they had originally to see just how lucky I am to get what I wanted.  Got a Pixcon16 which was the first thing to sell out.

Yes

Don’t give up if sold out- sometime things get added. Happened last year when I had bad reception. Time I finally got on the item I wanted was sold out. 1 day later I was able to get it.

I actually not looking at Sale this year.

Yes, very surprised no AC controllers sold out yet, last year only took 5 minutes for controllers to start to disappear, this year the Pixon and ELL items and now Vampire plugs.

Well everything went as planned (ALMOST). placed order at 9:00 but the DW walked in as I was speed clicking and said it looked like I was up to something and she saw the order confirmation total as I clicked send order. she was not happy and said I need help. Funny thing is I didn't even see the page or the total I was just going through the motions I had been practicing for the last 3 days. I may go back in for more after I pay the light bill. oh well guess I better figure out how to use this stuff.

Good grief Deb, what are you adding this year - or is this to RGB the mega-tree?

You’re gonna make me want to drive up there again...

This is how long the items lasted in the first hour.    I rigged a web scrapper to monitor the pages and pull these times.

Great work as always. I only needed vampire plugs but I prefer the 50 count boxes. 

Hopefully everyone received what they wanted.

I didn't get any chance to even try with this sale!  We lost our power last night at 6:30 and just got it back on at 7 this morning!  Probably a good thing for me though - LOL!

Should I ask what the complaint was?  Let me guess - the thing I wanted was sold out.

Well, I got what I wanted, and you have about a minute of order processing in order to get to mine...

I was thinking because they haven’t received it at their house yet.
