You probably just missed out before everyone else got in. On internet deals, you're competing with EVERYONE ON THE INTERNET, not just people from SlickDeals. Most deals on this site are reposts from other popular sites and you may just have missed the opportunity. Also, many retailers will time-release stock back into their online sales so it sells in waves and gives people like you multiple opportunities to purchase. What would be the agenda of a retailer to bait and switch you for an online item? Brick and mortar stores do it to get you in the building and attack you with ads and impulse buys, but an online retailer has no benefit from immediately selling out and then falsely promoting stock they don't have. Look at Walmart. They are notorious for cancelling orders because they oversold stock they didn't have.

You just missed out, my guy, and it's not the retailer or their CSRs fault.
