The deal started at 12:19. Not that this makes it any better for you... But I didn't even watch the item, I just searched for "Brave" as soon as the clock hit 12:19. Whenever an item is claimed, the purchaser has 15 minutes to check out or they lose it, so you shouldn't be sitting and waiting for too long.
I was lucky enough to get in on this one. I too watched it tick down to zero and when the click to purchase button didn't come up right away, I reloaded the movies black friday page and it was there on page 2. I then clicked to buy, and it took several seconds to come back and tell me it was added to my cart with less than 15 minutes to check out. Hopefully you joined the wait list, and someone will wait too long to checkout and it will be offered to you. I was able to get in on a couple deals this way yesterday, so good luck to you OP
The "Join waitlist" button will show up in lieu of the add to cart button when an item is 100% taken, and a page will then tell you what place you are in the wait list line. Those people have 15 minutes to check out, or they lose the item. Then those who are on the waitlist get an opportunity to purchase on a first come, first server basis. A box will pop up by your cart link letting you know if is available to you if you get in on it.
instead of waiting for it to change by its self, a couple of seconds before the deal is supposed to start press F5, this will cause your browser to reload the page and will almost always (Almost depending on your internet connection) be faster than waiting for the page to just refresh automatically for you.
This waiting's for the birds. I get paid more at work just sitting here hoping I'm getting the deal (it says I'm on the wait list). It's good of Amazon, yes, but this is silly. I've gotta leave to go to someone's house for Thanksgiving very soon so I CAN'T wait. :(
I've been searching online for that and cannot find an answer. As I posted earlier, I can't leisurely veg in front of my computer for hours since I have to be at someone's house for Thanksgiving soon....
But how do you claim it? Do you have to be NOT on the wait list? So in other words, if you're on "wait list" it's like flying "stand by" hoping you get a seat on the plane while others apparently actually GOT the deal and have moved on with their lives?
So, I'm on the waitlist now what?? I'm a little confused as I don't have a pop up to state what number I am or when and if I will get the movie? Anyone have any direction? I agree with all frustrations that have been stated thus far in the thread. I was pressing the button when it said 85% left. Still came up with nothing. UGH!!
