        About 12:59:40, and until about 50 or 51 seconds.
        My purchase history says it processed on 12:59:59
        When it went through it look longer to process the clicked button, thought it had crashed but it did work.

        •  

          I also tried at 12:59,
          keep doing that clicking confirm button

          and it just gave the error message..

          I think the other purchases were made by bots.

    •  

      What comes after confirm and pay? Worried about the confirm part taking long

      •  

        Used Card as checkout, there was nothing else, just congratulations/email confirmed etc.
        I had the item in the cart with code already applied. Shocked it worked because apparently people are using bots and scripts now.

        •  

          i don't even know how to do a bot or script to do this..
          that such a bummer that us normal mortals can't buy this..

          did you check it showed on your purchase history?

          •  

            @pinkybrain: Yep it's in purchase history now. Estimated delivery next week some time. Spam method about 20-30 seconds before the next hour clocks over seems to be the best method for people with the checkout page.

    •  

      Same here, 11am session, 1pm success. Spammed the button from 12:57PM, looks like I was purchaser #98 in this batch.. phew!

      •  

        lol, i started clicking around the 53 second mark, guess that was late. Will start earlier for the next round!

  • +1 vote

    I received "The seller has made changes to the item"? odd..

    •  

      Dammit me too.. it's because the seller took away the $10 shipping so it's now free shipping.
      By the time I reloaded tried to purchase it sold out again :(

    •  

      Me too. A few seconds before 1pm

  •  

    Got it!

    Is this a joke?!

  •  

    Ok one on my cart.. still shows 249.. where do i enter the code? Waiting before the clock strikes 2.. step by step….

    •  

      haha thats what i'm doing too. Good that I've managed to get it to my cart. Now waiting until 2pm to get to the checkout page.

      •  

        So from here.. checkout then out code.. then hope it goes thru?

        •  

          yes, next hour is to get to checkout page, then at 3pm try to get the code pre paste. 4pm 5pm smashiing that confirm and pay button. Takes hours for this s** u know. And chances to complete it is still very low lol.

      •  

        That worked for some. I kept spamming the checkout button from 12:58:00 and at 12:59:55 it came back with "Item Not Available or you have already purchased error" !!!
        I still have the item in my cart but says "Item not available" and I lost the checkout screen.
        Where as earlier from 12pm to 12:59:55, it was still in the cart, the discount had been applied, just had the usual "insufficient quantity remaining" error.

        •  

          finger crossed then. I still doubt that how do they make money putting 800 stocks with more than 50% discount. Very doubt!

        •  

          got it to one step further with discount applied. now it shows seller doesn't have many left. hopefully next hour will be a confirmation haha. this is fun instead, quite stressed though.

      You have to proceed to checkout to enter your payment details and coupon. If you're not at that step yet then you might have to wait 2 more cycles.
      2pm - Go to checkout, paste in code
      3pm - Spam Confirm & Pay button.

      •  

        That’s tight.. thanks mate

      •  

        was hitting confirm and pay from about 12:58 and still no luck. arrrrgh..

      •  

        I did that. Then it took me to some page telling me they're out of stock still. I definitely clicked it within the 10 second window - my page took less than a second to reload. This is ridiculous!

        •  

          Don't give up, now you've got it in the cart and have the button to spam, you should be in a better position.
          I tried since 10am and only just got it in the 1pm batch.

          • -1 vote

            @unco: Sorry noob question. What do you mean by spamming the button?

            •  

              @rav_stk: Once you go to checkout and enter the code in, you're most likely already too late to purchase the current batch.
              Don't exit that window, the Confirm & Pay button will be there for you to spam in the seconds leading up to the next hourly batch.

              PS. Didn't neg you.

    •  

      How can u get it to your cart mate?

      •  

        Just continue refreshing till it goes in. Problem now is that its on my cart but says zero amount..

  • +1 vote

    Smashed confirm button and got 2 order confirmations but nothing in purchase history or paypal.

  •  

    How Can I buy it? I clicked confirm and pay at 1:00 pm and it says seller doesn't have enough stock.

    • +1 vote

      Ok stay on that page! Enter in your details, visit the site 'time.is' open it up on a second screen spam click confirm when it goes to 1:59pm.

    •  

      Just keep the checkout page on until the next hour, then spamming then Click and Pay button, it will reload and keep clicking until order succesful. If you have already closed it, go to your browser history and click it back.

      •  

        So basically u guys need to click add to cart I'm the last missed round right? Because I just click buy it now, missing then now it's not in my cart.

        •  

          You dont have to have them in your cart. Did you proceed to the checkout page where you applied the code and payment detail? If yes, then stay at that page (not the cart page), if you click the big "Confirm and Pay" button, you will see the page just refresh itself but not doing anything.

          Go to your history, look for something like this, you will retrieve your last checkout page.

          •  

            @JadaJ: I clicked on buy it now, then in a nano second they have review order…when I clicked on it it said what other ppl already reported oos! I can't even got to page to apply code. I'm using app

  •  

    It is kind of a fun game

    What a waste of time

  •  

    Absolute joke. No way they have 100 every hour.

  •  

    Managed to snag the AirPods. I had it on the "Buy now" page from the previous hour with Credit Card and Coupon all locked in already, I just had to wait till there was stock to buy. I'd assume that's how everyone is getting it within seconds.

    •  

      How can u pre enter the code? There is no buy it now or add to cart button

      • +1 vote

        You have to do it while they're in stock. So it's kind of a 2 hour plan; Add to cart in the first hour (so you can add the coupon and preload CC) and then on the next hour, spam the buy now button in your cart.

      •  

        He's dreaming. lol

    •  

      When you say credit card, you mean you picked the circle that says credit card and then entered your details there?

      •  

        Correct.

    Spamming it on 2 different accounts from about 12:59:30 and I still missed out. This time I got a message saying ‘this item isn’t available in the requested quantity. It may have been purchased already, or the listing has expired.’ on a different webpage, now I can’t get back into my cart.

    There goes my chances of getting one, I give up.

      People here have secured the purchase.

  •  

    Had them in cart, spamming Confirm button from 12:59:45 but still no luck :( Sold out before 1pm for me, said no stock.

  • +1 vote

    It was the same listing as I refreshed it on the app and I got the buy it now button, but alas sold out. I'll try again at 2pm, but I have the button at least.

    I'm not sure if I'll keep at this until 5. This is making the Bose SoundSport Free I can get with my credit card reward points look more appealing.

  •  

    I had it in cart and been clicking Confirm around 12:59 and even 1:00pm… then it removes it from my cart and now its sold out.

  •  

    If you click Buy Now, do you still get an option to enter the code?? I had them in my cart but couldn't do anything in my cart, the only option on the listing was Buy Now or view in cart. Was hesitant to use Buy Now in case it just auto processed at $249…

    Sounds like they were gone anyway..

    • +1 vote

      Yes, I could add the code using “buy now”

      •  

        Thanks!!

  •  

    Forgot trying to use the iOS app. Stock came back at 12:59:40. I added to cart, entered code and “out of stock”.

    App is just too slow, even on 7 Plus with 115mb with 9ms internet.

  •  

    Had all details saved from 11am, Pay with CC, code applied, gift card applied.
    12pm - got thrown off by the price change, hesitated for 2 seconds. Missed out.
    1pm - Spammed the crap out of the Confirm button 2 minutes before 1, still no bueno.

    @12 What a bad luck, put airpod in cart, came stock out. Did blunder as I hit back, nothing was showing in cart.
    @1 tried to add on cart, it says, you already bought. What the hell

  •  

    I got mine with the 'still in the cart' method! I unticked, then re-ticked the apply coupon box a few mins prior and that showed the $99 price! Forgot to earn FF points though, can probably live with that!!

    I got a pair too!

    How I did it was, I had clicked 'Buy It Now' from the 10am session, added the voucher but couldn't pay for them because they ran out of stock.

    I didn't get out of that window and tried to pay at 11am and 12pm, but it was sold out before I could pay.

    So before the 1pm session, I added my credit card details instead of using Paypal, re-added the voucher for free shipping, and starting click 'Confirm and pay' from 12:58pm, and I reckon at about 12:59:40pm, after I clicked, my screen took a lot longer to load and I thought it had froze, but when the clock turned 1pm, it finally loaded with "Thanks! Your order was placed."

      Exactly the same for the last paragraph. High five

    •  

      Me to.

      I accidentally got out of the window from my previous checkout. However you can go into your history and reload it!

    •  

      How many times did you spam 'confirm and pay?'
      Basically until it goes through?

      • +1 vote

        I just kept clicking it everytime it went back to being an active button.
        Then suddenly it stayed greyed out with a spinny circle and success.

        •  

          SO every time you click it, it refreshes?
          Until it greys which = success?

          Ok will try thanks

          •  

            @OCD Completionist: Everytime I clicked it, it went grey to think for a bit but then reloaded back with the out of stock thing (and the button went back live).
            I could see the browser page refreshing that way.

            Then suddenly it went grey for a good 7-8 seconds and I got tempted to hit F5 but decided to wait it out and it said confirmed.

            If you have the page where you can click the Confirm & Pay button now, you could always try test clicking it now and it'll just come back saying OOS. You'll see what I mean then about the button going grey and back to live.

        •  

          Just did same

      •  

        Started from 12:57pm, when there's no stock, it only takes 1-2 seconds to refresh. Just keep doing it until you either get it or 20-30 seconds past the hour mark?

        I think the system restocks at around xx:59:30-xx:59:40

    •  

      Thank you so much! Thanks to your comment I was able to get one of them

    This is getting a lot of attention which is what eBay is trying to achieve to counter Amazon i suppose.

    For those that can't even get into the buying screen or can't even add it to cart, I wonder if you go to this link (purchase history):

    https://offer.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewBidsLogin&ite...

    Then spam "Buy it now" on the right hand side near the hour mark, can get you into the paying screen?
