Sly deal is dead.NOOOOOOO

Bullshit. I had it come up as "Join Waitlist" and then "Add to Deal Cart" both times it said checking then presented me with the button again. That was a really annoying 10 minutes

I dont even see the point in waiting on the other deals if this is gonna keep happening. Seems like it worked for others

yup, it'll happen to you again. Don't bother with the other deals.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

I was on the Sly waitlist too. I guess they had X amount of games. When those X were purchased and finalized, they shut it down and gave everyone on the WL the deal over message. Oh well.

Despite you're Raider fan (and I'm a Chargers fan), I'll help you since both of our teams are horrible.

Go to the Amazon home page.
Click on Black Friday Deal on the front page.
Now, without changing any filter (Keep it All), keep scrolling to the right.
You'll see Madden, currently showing 41% claimed.

Another quicker way is to select "Sports & Outdoor" on the filter.


or you could of just linked the page, like this

Hmm nope i didn't. THe only thing was i joined the waitlist at like 9:12 or so. *sigh* this isn't working. It keeps doing the same thing. Anyone know a number i can call amazon? Cant find anything. Not sure how to contact them about this. I did get a couple screen shots.

I dont even see the point in waiting on the other deals if this is gonna keep happening. Seems like it worked for others

They should work on their wording. Time didn't run out. Their stock did. Made me paranoid for a minute.

Really? Care to point out what 4 because no, no one said that. First reply was the guy telling me to check for the discount



Thanks, but, Ya i know about that. Its not there. jUst the shipping thing. Before final check out, it shows the right price. At the final 'confirm order' page its 30 bucks again, no discount

The timer ran out .. but it got me in again after joining the waitlist... BUT same damn problem! WTF is going on. I would love to contact CS, but there doesn't seem to be a number to call for amazon that i can find. This is lame

Just one more day (Thursday), and our chances of getting it that day are no better than they were today (i.e., piss-poor).

you might be able to contact cs and get them to issue a new credit as a courtesy they usually do in scenario's such as this

Actually I'd think your chance might improve since some people already got it today.

I grabbed Madden but am having second thoughts. Eh, for $25 I can see if Christian Ponder is good enough to lead the Vikes to the Super Bowl.

Also, you guys gotta remember - you aren't competing with 100 or even 1,000 other shoppers. It's Thanksgiving week, there are probably tens of thousands of people stalking Amazon for deals. They could have piles of stock and it will still disappear.

i give up i dont care enough to help you


yeaaa.. great help. Listen I dont think i need advice from someone whos truant on a trade anyway. No one said to contact CS, and obviously that will be the next step. The problem is finding a phone number for amazon. First reply was Bishop reminding me to look for the lightning discount, then some other replies about gamefly, ect.

Whatever, something was fucked up. I was seeing if anyone else had a problem or got it ordered right. Or someone knew where i could find a phone number i could call but amazon has it hidden well. Guess i'll try the email way see if i can get the deal through the contact us page. Dont know if it will get anywhere.

I was using Chrome, maybe i'll use firefox for the next one. Hopefully it wont bug out again

Is there any way you could post one or two of the screenshots you said you took of your order (your personal details edited out, obviously)? Maybe we can help pinpoint what went wrong.

My bet is that he waitlisted and it showed that it was available to be added to cart. However, like other people said, all stock was claimed so he couldn't buy it at the discounted price.

And is there a reason why you don't use the chat function?

I suggest Chrome for the Amazon site. FFox and IE have been hit or miss for me with the LD ticker.
