AMEX cardholder DEALS

http://mywishlist.mylifemycard.com/i...l_em_hltnprod1

Anyone give this a shot? I tried for the Sharp 1080p set for $900 at all 3 sale times. No luck.

3 new Porsches for $5000 each on Monday?

I've actually purchased a camera once through the my wishlist promotion 2 years ago. Hope I'm lucky this year...a $5000 porsche would be quite nice...

They have also offered coupons and discounts to retailers in the past as well, those are pretty easy to get. Not sure if they're offering it this year. Gonna have to check.

If anyone can pick up an extra Porsche for me, I will gladly pay part of the shipping cost so you could ship it to me. TIA

After supposedly "getting" the Zune this morning, it gave me an error after i put in my billing address.

Did it again this afternoon and got it. I'm going to try it out, but if I dislike it it will make a swell gift

2-3 weeks before it ships though

BASTARD!!! COngrats...It gets me so frustrated when I do this, but yet I continue. Funny thing is I cant really afford any of it, but its fun because if I do actually "win" Ill be happy as a pig in shit.

Well I tried for the Porsche, annoying as hell... I was ready a few minutes prior to 12pm EST, I kept getting the "it's almost time" dialogue box, then at 12pm sharp and for the next 8 minutes all I was getting was the "processing request" box. I never got that lame ass box where you type in those security type numbers and letters. This thing is so rigged, I bet the three "lucky" winners are actually either AMEX's most wealthy card holders or friends of really high up execs at AMEX.

I've also tried on the larger quantity items, nothing... zip, zero, zilch. Oh well, I'll just go on believing it's rigged, it's better than thinking I actually had a chance at all... damn you AMEX!!!

They've been processing my request for nearly an hour and a half (good thing it is in the background whilst I'm on the computer anyway). My odds must be really good for them to keep me on hold this long.

Not sure what I would do with it anyway. $5,000 but after all the taxes and fees it would probably approach $10,000 and be a hassle to sell. Not sure what one could resell it for anyway.

The only thing I have gotten so far is one of the Wish Certificates - a sucky 25% off at Borders.

Sony Bravia and Blue-Ray DVD player at noon. I'll be back in the mix... and most certainly not winning anything.

I'm in too for the Blu-Ray package. Was it always just the BD Player for the 3 and 7 drawings without the Bravia?
