  • I'm guessing their website will crash

        I'm not gonna even bother participating lol

        • That's not the cheapies spirit! Haha

          • @NeM2k2: That's amateur Cheapie thinking. I'm a pro now, hehe

    • Link doesn't seem to work for me now

    • timeout of 15000ms exceeded Retry etc then "No matching Coupon found" means 100 redeemed rather than they forgot to add it. To be fair, the coupon code was fairly predictable and was posted here before I found it. Their website didn't perform as horribly as I thought it would although I think one of the advantages is it's AJAX and so it's less obvious when it's dying.

    Lol taxpayers subsidizing millions for this event, good to see they're giving $3600 back.

  • Will the code be on the front page of the link or will it be one of those annoying scavenger hunts like Mighty Ape does?

  • Lol only first 100? Not enough!

    phew that took awhile, claimed the coupon dead on 6pm, and took 4 minutes to get to the payment screen

  • +1

    Choicecheapers profit once again. Took a while for it to go through…

  • i suspect it only let 100 people add the coupon to their coupons page?

    • Yeah, I got the coupon but can't proceed to paid, refresh and checked coupon page it has the coupon there and said Already used, then have a unpaid checkout expired in 15mins so I click paid, was thinking cancel the checkout and add something else but scare the coupon will be invalid lol

      • +1

        thats what happened to me, by the sound of it, i think most of the 100 people were cheapies members!

        • Maybe we just have to claim the coupon at check out but we can proceed to pay just before the coupon expired tonight 11:59

    • +1

      Possibly but I think these kind of things are hard to get right on their back end especially since relying on a single arbiter of the results is a good way to ensure everything collapses. So you have concurrency in your database but you then have to handle race conditions which probably means the final number goes well over 100. And also I suspect it's a lot of effort for something rarely used. So I wouldn't be surprised if more than 100 were able to redeem it. It's hard to pursue them for misleading advertising if they make some attempt to limit it to 100 and at least 100 people do redeem it.

      It's even possible the way they implemented it, it was only after 100 people had checked out that they ended the coupon, but significantly more were able to add and use the coupon. However I could easily imagine that adding up to 1000 or more people using the coupon and that was somewhat predictable. So while they could chalk it up to a marketing expense, it also seems spending a few hundred people hours to make a slightly better system would probably be worth it, so don't know how likely it is that it was like that.

  • No matching Coupon found
    thats what i got

  • +1

    Managed to get one, hopefully they dont cancel haha. Had troubles in the beginning after coupon was added but then it seemed the transaction was saved and you had 15minutes to pay for it after timing out.

    • yeah i have a funny feeling more than 100 have redeemed!

  • Confirmed it ended

    I added the voucher and then kept trying to pay but error after error kept coming up saying there was a problem processing.. tried for 10 mins and then gave up thinking I was just too late. :-(

    BUT.. I refreshed my browser page expecting it to show another error about coupon expired but instead it told me I had an item to pay for.. so I clicked the button and it took me to the payment screen with my $36 discount on my ever so exciting $45 frying pan, woohoo! :-)

    • +1

      same here

    • same experience, said i said 20min to complete my order and it worked

  • Got a PS5 Dual Sense for my brother and Blue yeti mic for moi :D

    Enough hard work for today :P

  • two pizza stone for 40 dollar, I PAID 10.90

  • Got it after a bunch of loading

  • Also worked for me. Got a half price board game. Thanks!

  • PS5 controller for $78! Got it!

  • Out of interest, what was the latest someone was able to successfully add the coupon (and then use it)? For clarity, I don't mean when you checked out. I mean what time you added the coupon for use successfully. (It sounds like once you added it, you were able to use it even if it took a while.)

    • 604 for me

      • Interesting, guess I got unlucky. Since I didn't refresh this thread, it took me a while to find the coupon then to try it. I think I tried it at 18:05 but it was dead by then. Guess I just missed it.

    • Yea sounds like once you 'claimed' the coupon, you have until 12pm tonight to use it. I 'claimed' the coupon at 6pm, but didn't place order until about 6:15pm.

    • The Market on FB comments said all were claimed within 60 seconds

      • oh damn.

      • I dont have an account, any news on purchases post 6.01 then? Fingers crossed!

  • +2

    I wonder what the ratio of choicecheapies users to normals was who got their grubby little hands on the vouchers? It would have to be at least 2:1 wouldn't it?

    • +2

      haha hey, at least we're not as bad as "the ozbargain effect" back in oz….

    • Yeah this site has gotten way too big now, it's both a good and bad thing.

  • Tried at 6:01 didn't work. Don't think I hit check coupon and it didn't apply on the next screen.

  • +1

    Got it added at 6:08 and it worked lol!

  • Also got it.

  • Got a fragrance and some boss coffee. Did have to load the site few times
