woo hoo, I'm working the overnight on turkey day so I'll be up for the start of this. I may not have any $ to play with, but it was sure fun trying to get in on deals last year. Just make sure the servers are up to it.

This was my experience as well, and I was checking twitter, here, the site constantly before giving up. GL to those with access to a faster internet node.

Yeah, you need a really fast connection and a lot of luck.

I won the 2008 UD Documentary BB case for $11.27 off of Ebay. I believe they posted it on Facebook (after 100's of refreshes) just as I refreshed. I hit the link and hit buy without even looking at what I was bidding on, seriously. I knew it was a case and for $11.27 I couldn't go wrong.

I also was able to get one of the 2007 Bowman Chrome Football boxes for $11.27 as well. Also got a bunch of other good deals, but to get the $11.27 deals, it's pure luck to say the least.

I'll be out of town this year with a cheap laptop and a slow connection. I'll try and get some of the early deals, but will most likely wait until it's over and grab some of the deals they had at the end of the day.

Wow amazing on getting the case! What connection did you have, how fast was it? (Mbs/sec)?

At home I have Verizon Fios, so it's pretty fast. According to Speakeasy, I am getting 25.70 mbs/sec for downloads and 4.60 mbs/sec for uploads. I don't have their fastest plan, but it is quick. My parents, where I will be, has only DSL, so a major slowdown.

As for what to look for, there will be soooo many good deals, you can't go wrong. You need to have open windows on the forum thread, Blowout's Facebook and their Ebay account. I kept refreshing each one of those pages until I saw something and went for it.

Also, you'll have to be very quick when paying. Several times I was able to put some items in my cart before they were sold out, only to go through the payment process and find out everything was sold

Well, hopefully I got a quick enough internet connection and am able to get in on some of the deals. If not, oh well, I'll still have fun trying. So deals wont just be on the website, they will be on the ebay on Facebook pages as well?

Last year there were both box and case specials; a proverbial potpourri of discounts.

You need to be quick though because the quantities for the best "blowouts" are very limited.

So if I’m shipping to Canada and I’m lucky enough to place 3 orders, I’ll have to pay like $20 on each order rather than combining them?

Pretty sure there will be. Those specials are for those of us who don't have the luck of getting in on the great deals during the day. We can get the leftovers after 5:00pm est.
