* All products are brand new.
* Voting closes Tuesday at 9 p.m. Pacific Time, and the winner will be announced Wednesday at 11 a.m. Pacific Time.
* The winner will go on sale Thursday, Thanksgiving Day, at 11 a.m. Pacific Time. Be here!
* Increase your odds of scoring the deal by reading our buying tips.
Thought you might like a shot.

Too bad they don't offer it to Canadians

so basically, on thanksgiving, I sign on amazon.com at 1 p.m (est) and just check on core consoles?

It would be amazing, but I'm doubting it :/

I'll try it, to have a backup 360, but I imagine there will be a lot of "server is busy" errors.

Not exactly. You have to go through the voting link page:

Each week's winner goes on sale Thursdays at 11 a.m. Pacific Time. Buying will close when available quantities have sold out. Be online, ready and waiting on Amazon.com, the second buying goes live. If you don't have an Amazon.com account already, get one now. We predict that these deals will sell out rapidly.

You won't buy products from Amazon Customers Vote the way you'd ordinarily buy at Amazon.com. We've implemented a special series of screens to ensure we only take as many orders as we can fulfill, and to ensure that each customer buys only one item. You'll be asked to verify your identity, and issued one of a limited number of claim codes that allow you to purchase at the special discounted price.

You must buy via the Amazon Customers Vote page (amazon.com/customers-vote), not the product detail page, in order to buy one of the set-aside items; otherwise, you will not pass through the series of screens in which we issue the claim code, and you will not receive the discount.

Additionally, only items shipped from and sold by Amazon.com are included in this promotion, although some of these items are sold on our site by third-party merchants. If you add an item to your cart from the detail page using the "Add to Shopping Cart" button for a different merchant (such as Target), we cannot apply the claim code to your order.

I can't wait til they sell all 1000 alloted in 2 minutes and then see the throng of internet posts whining about bait and switch and threatening to sue amazon for not selling it to them for $100.

Canis Firebrand 11-21-06 09:23 AM

Don't forget the greed that will place at least half of those 1000 alloted items up on ebay for profit. :rolleyes:

KurrptSenate 11-21-06 09:28 AM

i want to try to get one for a friend for christmas. If it doesn't work out, im sure I won't lose any sleep over it

DJ_Longfellow 11-21-06 09:52 AM

Yeah, it's funny...people are ALREADY bitching about this deal. I will try, It will be 2 minutes of my life.

KurrptSenate 11-21-06 09:55 AM

people are so damn whiney on the internets :lol:

porieux 11-21-06 09:56 AM

Even though I don't have too much interest in the Xbox, I will try just for the hell of it.

Iron_Giant 11-21-06 04:53 PM

Bring it on...my son would love to open the XBox 360 under the tree.

Nazgul 11-21-06 08:14 PM

Cool. I voted for the Barbie deal!

heavywear 11-21-06 08:22 PM

84.3% of votes so far ;)

bahgee 11-21-06 10:10 PM

I think Amazon may be trying out this method of handing out claim codes for when they finally decide to sell PS3.

No way this deal lasts for two minutes. This deal will last as long it takes for 1000 people hovering over the the Buy It link to left-click.

It would be amazing if you got one an hour early!

KurrptSenate 11-22-06 07:58 AM

PixyJunket 11-22-06 08:11 AM

I might be at my girlfriend's parent's house for Thanksgiving.. with DIAL-UP! NOOO!

KurrptSenate 11-22-06 08:13 AM

I'll be at the in-laws, also with dial-up. :(

Xander 11-22-06 09:09 AM

Huh. Well, I suppose I'll give this a shot tomorrow. Thanks for the heads-up! :)

I'll be on dial up at my parents house as well. I'm still giving it a try though.

I was very excited about this deal until I saw posts about it on almost all the message boards I go to. There's definitely a lot of buzz about this deal and I think it may be tough to get in on it. At my house we'll have at least 2 people trying for it, I let some of the more tech-savvy relatives know that if they wanted a shot they may need to bring their laptops because we only have 3 computers that can be used at a time.

chrisih8u 11-22-06 05:23 PM

I'll give it a shot. Do I just have to go to the page that XBox 360 sells at normally, or will there be a special link?
