Yeah, I have gotten up early the last two years and got shut out both times as well. The first year I tried to wait for combines shipping (rookie mistake). The second year, the site was so slow everytime I got to checkout my items were sold out. (But I did get in on the early deal this year!)

Yeah, they will post to all three. They used to have some exclusive eBay deals as well. I don't know if they are doing that anymore.

The above statement about getting shutout is probably the reason they won't change anything. They really don't need to. They get plenty of attention on BF and sell out on all their offers, so why would they need to make the deal any sweeter? I would say take the shipping out of the discount and then decide if you still think it is a good deal. Most of the time it is.

The other populate tip is to prefill your cart with $150 worth of product you would like, and when a deal comes along you want, add it and you will have free shipping for the deal item along with the $150 worth of stuff.
