Default Get a Zune for $90 at Amazon!

Some of you may know that 1,000 Xbox 360's were sold on Thanksgivings day. When you think it can't get any better, they will be selling 1,000 zunes for $90.

Buying Period: Tuesday, Dec. 12, 12:00 a.m. PST @ amazon.com.

More info here: http://promotions.amazon.com/gp/holiday/cv/homepage and http://promotions.amazon.com/gp/holi...414069-8058525

Of course, there might be a SLIGHT chance that the won't be selling Zune's, but a George Foreman 10-Burger Jumbo Grill. However, that is highly unlikely, for the Zune is in lead by 30%. It'd be miraculous, if the others catch up.

So remember to have a fast connection and a keyboard with a F5 button on December 12th! I have school.

edit: Their rules have changed a bit. Most likely from the server crash before. Make sure to real rules carefully.

I don't think you need a fast connection or even a F5 button because they choose the people at random.

First, vote for the deal that you want. If you vote for the deal that gets the most votes in the end, you will be eligible to receive a claim code only for the winning deal. If you vote for one of the runner-up deals, you will be eligible to receive a claim code only for that deal, at the runner-up discount. (The runner-up discount won't be as ridiculous as the winning discount, but it will still be pretty darn good.) Remember:

* You are eligible to buy only the deal that you voted for.
* You need an authorized credit card on your account.
* The claim codes will be distributed only to randomly selected customers.

Voting ends Sunday, Dec. 10, at 11:59 p.m. Pacific time. Come back to this page anytime on Tuesday, Dec. 12 (12:00 a.m. - 11:59 p.m. Pacific time), to find out if you have been randomly selected for the opportunity to purchase the item that you voted for at a discounted price.


Yeah so. Vote and hope they send you a claim code! WOOO

Ah, their rules changed. Must've been the server crash caused by the xbox 360 deal.

Wow. They changed the rules a lot.. During the Xbox 360 thing, it was even possible to pay via Money Order.

That 360 thing was apparently a nightmare.

Um, is anyone going to hate me if I do the Foreman grill instead, since I've already got a Zune?


Juuuuuust kidding!

I voted..looks like the Zune has a clear lead over the other offerings. Would love to get a second Zune to give my sister for Christmas then we could share songs back and forth.

Well I got the big NO for this round. Did anyone who voted for the Zune here get a claim code?

If they don't become sold out by tonight at 11:59pm they'll sell the rest at a "Discount" but not guranteed at the same price it is now, I wonder if it will make it that long.
