If I remember correctly, you also can't combine shipping at the end of the day. Each product is it's own separate transaction. Can someone please confirm?

Don't know if anyone wants to throw this out there, but what is the fastest method to use to check out? Is it credit card or paypal?

That is correct.

All I remember is a lot of waiting, and painful lag. I got up when the first set of deals went live, and they reserved most of the great deals for the late morning early afternoon when everyone was awake. There was no need to wake up and be online early in my opinion. I guess the early bird didn't get the worm. I might try it again this year we will see.

On a side note there were some real good deals. I just wish they had solid products early on instaed of pokemon crap, magic the gathering, and benchwarmers.

I too remember that painful lag/waiting last year and not knowing exactly when a new sale would be announced. Most good stuff saved for the end. I was online from 6am and I dont think they announced TTT's until like 4PM. I waited hours upon hours for mostly junk specials (there was a few decent ones, dont get me wrong, not all garbage). But I was annoyed they wouldnt even give us an idea when TTT's would go up. After about 8 hours I gave up. Then when I heard special was on, I came back and tried to purchase but lag/froze before purchase completed and they sold out. Emailed and Fish was nice enough to personally respond and apologize and said to give him a few days to sort things out and he would see what he could do for me. Tried to follow up but never got any further response.

Personally, my advice would be to proceed w/ caution and dont plan your day around it or feel you hafta get up early. And if you snag one of the really good deals, consider yourself lucky!

I remember waiting for some Harry Potter stuff since my wife loves the cards and waited all day only for it to be lumped at the end of the day with a bunch of other deals.

Luckily, I work BF and will be up at 6 AM anyway. Hopefully my workday is slow so I can regularly check the site!

I think you can still combine shipping, but since the deals run out so quickly you have to pay asap. This results in paying shipping for each item.

So you're saying I could potentially be paying hundreds of dollars in shipping if I take advantage of tons of deals? That just doesn't make sense, bo should refund us some of that money since they'll more than likely ship it all out @ once.

Blowout if you are reading this..

I have never bought a case before.. You should definitely put 2008 Razor Letterman Cases on sale for a good price so I can buy my first ever case.

Okay, I'm done making my case for Razor Letterman. I don't know why I love this product so much

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.

They will ship each order individually, they will not combine multiple orders into one package. I'm sure if they had an easy way to combine all the orders throughout the weekend they would do it, it would save them tons of time.
