          Hijacking this comment(sorry plese) to warn ozbargainers-

          Each of these products are full price and/or sh*t-

          Hear me out-

          Item Why it sucks Normal price
          Sony Headphones They require sony phones/5 headphone poles to be fully functional. ~$45
          Google chromecast 2 It are cheaper elseware if you know where to look. ~$35 with good guys voucher
          Casio GShock Watch Why wear a watch which looks Like sh*t as a fashion accessory(orange? Seriously?) ~$100 from amazon
          Fitbit flex Honestly its outdated. Just buy a Miband 2( which has better specs+HR) which costs the same(if you account for shiping) ~$59
          Ray - bans True ozbargainers are not brain washed by name brands. You can find similar glasses for ~$5.99.(Dont give me that "protection" crap) ~$$100
          Dyson hairdryer Whoever buys a ~$600 hardryer stfu and give me your ozbargainer licence. You can buy hairdriers for cheaper ~$$600
          Bose headphones $300 is the the normal price. In fact you may even get them cheaper occasionally. ~$$300
          Go Pro hero 4 session ~$200 is the normal price and the camera apparently sucks. ~$$200
          CK Euphoria Apart from the shitty smell of all CK perfumes this is the normal price if you consider shipping. ~$$30

          That said there are some deals in there like the speaker which i can anecdotally can vow for the price.
          please dont spend your hard earned money on this crap.

          XOXO (LoL)

          Firstly I upvoted you because of your efforts…but…

          You seem to have gone out of your way to express quite a lot of subjective negativity here. Any reason?

          A lot of what you said is simply personal opinions and I'm just wondering whats your angle. Some people love the look of the G-Shock; Raybans are overpriced but they are gonna last a lot lot longer than a $5.99 ebay pair. Actually all name brand sunnies are overpriced but most of us here own a pair; GoPro has mixed reviews, a lot are good. Why pick the bad one? Gotta agree about the perfume but again it is subjective…some must like it!!

          @slipperypete: even if i replaced the ebay pair 10 times, ill still be ahead

        •  

          @0p: >True ozbargainers are not brain washed by name brands.

          Oh sure I bet everything you buy does not have a brand on it and you are totally immune to marketing even though it relies on automatic processes that no one is aware of.

        •  

          @Tm15: i have the session 4 and I think it is a good camera, not worth the original $400 but at $200, cant complain

        •  

          @obiwan:
          Normal price is $299 AUD
          Agree it's a really good buy at $200 - the guy on youtube was criticising that it wasn't good value @ $400 but at $200 it's a steal.

          Same features as Pro 4 Silver but without 1) Touchscreen LCD 2) Replaceable battery 3) 4k 15fps (which isn't usable anyway)
          Better because 1) Size & weight (cue helmet users) 2) Waterproof without any cases 3) Same quality for half the price

        •  

          @blonky:
          Also everyone note that the current version of the session 4 doesn't come with half the accessories such as rear mounted cage and ball joint. You get the standard bottom mount frame/cage, 2x 3M quick releases and 2 types of mounts
          Probably how they cut the price so much

        •  

          @0p:

          $200 is definitely not the normal price for the Go Pro Session. It's usually close to $300.

          And that review is bullshit because it's solely based on the fact that it's the same price as the Silver version when it simply is NOT; the Silver is double the price (I guess at the time of the review they were probably the same price ?). It's a shame that video review is one of the first google search results that shows up when searching for go pro session; this is one of the reasons I hate the internet.

          @furythree:

          I'm making no sweeping statements about them being more effective at blocking UV etc. I'm just saying the build quality and finish (and in certain cases the absence of swirls and other optical distortions) tends to make the Ray Bans a superior product that an el cheapo pair of sunglasses from Ebay (or a street hawker in Bali).

      Your asking the wrong person

      But I am predicting there will be plenty of Chromecast 2 since Version 3 of Chromecast is being released next month. Same prediction for the fitbit too

      i've been trying for the last 8 years but still no success. usually very low stock or site crashes. but best of luck to me for this year

    • +1 vote

      And how much stock of each?

      Maybe none or by the time you checkout and you'll get a sold out error message. I won't be wasting my time on this BS deal like many of those BFriday drop shipping sites.

    Ah, the old catch-a-thon disasters are back

  • +31 votes

    Comes with free server time-outs, stock counts in single digits, refunds/returns for faulty crap that never are actually processed and being charged multiple times when you can process an order for shit you didn't plan to buy, yet buy out of frustration at missing everything else you actually wanted during the day!

    will there be shipping fees?

  •  

    can i mass buy those earphones? I want to buy enough to last a life time or a few.

  •  

    Can't imagine Sony noise reducing headphones will last long @ $1.

    •  

      it will sell out really quick i reckon, they might put a limit on how much you can purchase, so other customers get a chance at it

    •  

      Pretty sure it's the headphones which only work with Xperia too

      • +3 votes

        yea it looks like them, NC31EM. I bought a pair for around $50 and they are well worth it if you have a compatible phone. i think they only work with a few sony phones, and if i plug them in my laptop i only get sound out of one ear because it has extra connections in the plug, and the laptop must not make contact at the right spot for both ears

        if you have a compatible phone these are pretty good though. they look just like any other pair of earphones, with no extra bulk or anything. the noise cancelling works pretty well, and is good feature when it doesnt cost an arm and a leg. really useful for study and work, or just listening to music on a bus without having to turn the volume up to drown out the noise. they sound decent too

        if you dont have a compatible phone these will be pretty useless though

    Inb4 the site gets hammered and deal gets negged.

    Haven't been impressed with COTD's offerings lately. They used to regularly offer a lot of extra discount - 30,40,50% off, usually - off their listed prices across various different sale areas.

    Could get some super deals then, made it worth trawling through their pages.

    Now, they might have the occasional low price headline item, and most of their products are not expensive, but not exactly bargains. I think they are trying to transition away from the big % off sales by the look of things.

    10 years of over quoting RRPs.

    Well done CotD.

    •  

      10 years of server crashing catch frenzies

    •  

      And the RRP appears to be doing exactly what was intended which is manipulating anyone* that sees it into seeing more value than they would otherwise.

      *It isn't everyone (for the same circumstance) but you have no way of knowing if it happened so the rational option is assuming it has. No one is immune to the effect occurring and the only way to avoid it is to not see the number. If it's printed in a deal the effect has occurred already.

    Im sure some will enjoy it, but the site has always been so dog slow (probably due to to the heavy graphics AND the customer base) — havent bought anything for a long time… lot of the deals arent really they great when u do a bit of reasearch (postage costs….)

  •  

    Have never had any luck with these events until last year where I managed to snag a few food things, so hopefully this year is the same. From what I can remember, the mobile site/app worked better under the load than the desktop page.

    By the way everyone on the 4th of Oct its rumored that a new Chromecast is going to be released.

    Supporting HDR and 4K, so if you care about those things you might wanna hold off :D

    Mad deal on the fitbit. What are the chances of getting one? Never done the whole COTD thing

    I know it's going the way of the dodo but it'd be interesting to see what price it gets.

    Knowing COTD though, it'll probably still be a joke.

    5 minutes and the chromecast2 is sold out.. gg

    any deal under $50 will be destroyed by its shipping cost. like ChromeCast 2 for $29 is a good bargain but once $10 shipping adds to it its no deal.

    Got me a Chromecast 2 at 10:03am, now sold out

  •  

    Where is Fitbit guys?

    •  

      I think hot items will be saved for later to keep you checking out their website often for the entire day.

      •  

        I guess so, anyway I am on the Q to talk to them, will keep you all posted here.

        UPDATE:
        this is what Clare from COTD told me when I asked for the exact time for Fitbit:
        Unfortunately we're unable to confirm which items are on at which time during our birthday sale, however we recommend checking the site each hour when we release an item
