Don't worry. You're not alone. I missed it by about 5 minutes. I've barely missed so many deals I wanted that it would be a smaller number to count the number of times I've caught a deal I wanted vs. the number of times I've barely missed a deal. There were 50' Ethernet cables for 99c at Newegg last night, but I do in fact have to sleep each night before I go to work. I don't know how so many other people are up all hours of the night unless they have magic eyes that don't close or they work night shifts or they don't work at all. (I think it's the latter... I thought I heard that almost half of the country receives govt. assistance.)
What's the point of deal alerts? I just got the email for this getting 4 thumbs up and it's already dead.
Of course the 9000 emails about free books about smoothies on Amazon and the multitude of deals on tampons are still available in mass...
Interestingly the first post on this thread to say it's unavailable was posted at 11:50. The email for the deal alert came at 11:51. So I guess deal alerts on the best deals are delayed and sent out after the deal has become unavailable?
This thread was posted at 11am, has about 40 thumbs up. I have a hard time believing it took 50 minutes for this thread to receive 4 thumbs up. Those smoothy amazon book threads have 4 thumbs within minutes and I get the email within minutes.
I guess the site only wants traffic when it's promoting Amazon. Any real deals and you can expect to get the alert too late.
