Amazon, Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Rant
First, before I get into my rant I must say that I love Amazon and I think they are awesome overall and love the Black Friday, Cyber Monday lightning deals that they are doing but I do have one complaint. I Wanted to purchase the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer TF101-B1 32GB 10.1-Inch Tablet (Tablet Only) and they had a lightning deal for the tablet that was an amazing price. 329.00 so I waited and I clicked on it as soon as it went live. But I went into some sort of Amazon Hell where it continued to ask me to add to cart and then join waitlist and then back and forth over and over again. I continued this game until I finally got on the waitlist 35 minutes later. When I finally got on the list I was 500+ on the list and my chances of getting the deal were poor. Now I am not ranting because I did not get the deal, I realize that they only have so many at that amazing price and I might not have been fast enough, but it seems to me that as soon as I clicked add to cart, it should have at the minimum put me on the waitlist at that time. Just seems to me that for the very popular items they could have handled it a bit better.
All that being said I still love Amazon and thank them for all the deals that I did get.
