Apple TV $39 Diablo III $20 Flip Flop $1 Amazon Kindle $59 Silver Bracelet $10 1TB HD $49 @COTD


I got an email from Scoopon confirming the COTD flash sale. Below is the email:

The votes are in, and it's all about to start! Tomorrow (Tuesday) at 11AM AEDT, we'll be launching the latest edition of our "FLASH SALE" (our popular hour-by-hour sale where the products are decided by our customers). Simply enter the Catch of the Day site at 11 AM AEDT and we will be featuring 12 deals, one deal per hour on the hour. Here are some of the featured deals:

Apple TV – Just $39
Diablo III – Just $20
Traditional Black Havaianas – Just $1
Pandora Silver Bracelet – Just $10
WD 1TB Hard Drive - Just $49
Amazon Kindle - Just $59
and 6 more fabulous deals!

Remember, this is a members only promotion and as such you will be required to login to gain access. Also note that as always, the quantities on the flash sales are strictly limited and vary from deal to deal. We advise that anyone who may find a few server crashes or waiting around too stressful to give this event a miss. It gets pretty crowded, but there's always outstanding value in this amazingly democratic event!

It seem that they will be doing 1 deal/hour. I am not sure if its by the most popular order first or not.

If yes then it will be Diablo 3 from 11am-12am, then the Apple TV > WD 1TB Hard Drive > Amazon Kindle> Pandora Silver Bracelet and lastly $1 flip flop. They also said and 6 more fabulous deal, so may be they will might be doing the next 6 popular as well.
Good price but stock is limited and the server may crash. If you dont have the time or patient then just give it a miss as they suggested, dont go for it and then complain that they wasted your time. If you do have time and patient then good luck getting a great bargain.

Mod: Please let me remind you again the Voting Guidelines of OzBargain, especially regarding to the negative votes. We will revoke votes that do not have valid reason.

Not Okay —

COTD sucks

Okay —

  • Bait advertising — requirement membership but no stock
  • COTD's server crashes when I am trying to complete the transaction.
  • Their website is no usable.
  • Quantity is too limited to be called a deal.

  • Sold out in a page refresh….is that even possible?

  • +3

    I refreshed my page the second it was 1pm and then it crashed and then told me it was sold out within a couple of minutes.
    These deals are competitions therefore not a bargain therefore shouldn't be in deals.

        im just hoping they dont send a follow up fail email

        • +3

          Maybe we all had to buy the THONGS first to be eligible for a D3?

        • +3

          why the hell did you buy the thongs? any saving you got for diablo was wasted on the thongs.


    • congrats hope you don't get error 3006

    • +1


    • +1

      you must have been the lucky person to score the single copy up for grabs

    • just wondering, did you pay using your credit card or paypal?

    • He's the one who blocked all of us! GET HIM, BOYS! :)

    • I got a copy of D3 as well. I was using the iPhone app on the iPad and it was smooth as. They must have separate servers or gateways to handle the apps as I am having enough trouble at the moment just refreshing the non-bargain page there now advertising the other sites (hardly counts as a bargain for this hour).
      Didn't read that it might be a digital copy and paid $7.95 for shipping. Oh.. paid via credit card.
      I know I'll be firing up the app again for the next rollover of the hour.

    • I'll believe it when I see it, upload a photo…

    COTD is rubbish. This was my first time on the site, I created an account this morning, logged in 2mins before 1PM, waited for diablo, hit purchase, checkout… then WHAM! login again please, so i did, then 'cart empty' at 1.03. sorry sold out now, bye bye.

    I'll never bother with these guys again.

  • DIABLO 3 $20 1pm-2pm + shipping.. will recieve either 1 hard copy or a digital download.. luck of the draw.. 7-10 days for delivery

    • +1

      Don't you mean, 1pm-1.01pm?

  • i got one… I think? Does an email confirmation come or what?

    • yes, I have got charged before but no order on there(COTD) side so they just gave me a refund

    • I got an email confirmation @ 1:02, so I assume if you haven't got one yet, then you have troubles.

    • EMAIL Y U NO ARRIVE?? Don't know why i'm getting all excited for. It's not even for me.

      • check to see what the myaccount for recent orders

      • I'm a little apprehensive posting this but i've just got the confirmation email. :D
        Thanks aacheney!

  • I was logged in and had it in my cart. Then it logged me out, so I had to sign back in and it sent me to server full page. Quality.

  • +1

    Unfortunately the following order has not been processed due to a communication error. Your Credit Card account has NOT been charged.

    To continue with your purchase,  please place a new order on the website.

    We apologise for any inconvenience.

  • Seriously…. do you guys reckon anybody actually bought one?

    I believe they probably use these 'popular' deals to lure the fish in so they can see if they can catch anyone purchasing their flip flops…. as all you see after the page refresh are those (now those wont be sold out anytime soon!)

    Edit: wow cant believe mrjk got one!! lucky fish!

    • mrjk, when your diablo3 arrives, could you please let us know if you got a standard version or a starter version?


      • will do :)

    • +1

      They'll probably advertise they they sold 1000's of them.

  • +1

    no wonder people hate COTD, this is complete BS

    • +2

      Its funny how people "hate" COTD but they get so much traffic and sell so many millions of dollars worth of gear every week.
      I guess its a love hate relationship.

  • +2

    By the time I refreshed the page successfully after 1pm, diablo 3 was already sold out. Obviously very limited stock.

  • +2

    This is an absolute joke, sold out in seconds, servers that go down like presidential interns…

  • Surprise. Surprise. The COTD site is having a meltdown.

  • +4

    Probably brought 6 copies or so from the local JB or EB games, advertise for 20 bucks as a loss leader so they can sell the other shit they have.

    Quick! someone should tell today tonight and ACA about it

    • +1

      I would be curious to see if somebody actually manage to bought one. Let's face it the price is unreal for Diablo, Apple TV or Kindle.

  • +1

    Whats even more annoying is that they have the balls to post this on their twitter

    Over 33,000 Visitors are checking us every second! Viva la Online Shopping!

  • Does anyone know what version of Apple TV they will be selling?

    • +1

      probably the original one.

      • That wouldn't matter as it would be for a spare TV and will probably JB it.

        • -1

          PS: sorry Apple if I swore!

    • +3

      That set top box was the "apple" tv

      • hahah! Gold!

    • the question you should be asking first is…..Do I have a chance of actually getting one Apple TV out of one they have in stock?

  • +2

    Really waste of time and too few copies to call it a deal!

      • Honestly, there are no different between Ads!, $20 Top Box, or even $7 Thongs…at least the Ads gave us a laugh, ROFL!!!

  • +5

    I am unsusbcribing from COTD and Scoopon. Just sticking with ozbargain.

  • D3 bait advertising just to get the hit counter flowing. Not to mention the page hasntl loaded for me in the last 30 m.
