Agreed.

Why do they have this go for 4h when the first 200 uses are gone in like 1 minute?

How is that possible?  They were gone by my local time 5 minutes after it started?

Luck of the draw.  Also, maybe closer proximity helps. I'm halfway around the globe!

That’s because final amount does not show that Registered Air Mail ## Package Tracking Service. for US$0.01
and the question now is do you have to make an order for $100.01 and then, when you check out it will be 100.00???

Tried again....and failed again.  Site just can't handle the traffic.  This is really frustrating.

Did you place order for 100$ together with registered shipping or 100.01$?

It’s literally impossible to place an order with or without coupon code, it’s a waste of time…

Meh, my cart was 100$ with that registered mail thingy, got my coupon through, it cart showed 50.01$ total, when I went to PayPal checkout, which came through only on 3rd attempt, it showed me 99.99$!
WTF?!

DX definitely proved that it is a scam.
After about 50 minutes of trying to access my shopping cart I made it, but now I can’t remove “BULKRATE” from the cart!!!
and the grand total is 101,69$ ???
NO way to remove that, coupon field is inaccessible!

They FKING SUCK!

I was finally able to go to Paypal and pay those 50$ when Paypal told me theres an error and go back to merchant, I clicked go back to merchant and DX DELETED MY ORDER!
Now, when I apply the same coupon DX tells me that I have already used my coupon!
Needless to say that there are no orders in oder list and theres not customer service rep to get in touch with!
WHAT THE FUKK?!

I think I saw every possible error message during the process.

First I got some "normal" 500-errors:

 

..then some 503's:

 

..and 504's:

 

..and again some 500's:

 

..BUT then, after about 50 minutes of refreshing of multiple pages, I got this!  Party  Party 

 

..and even the payment went well:

 

=> Three days of trying and finally a Great Success!! Cool

This must be the Chinese way of stress testing their servers.

They promise 50% off and only give the discount to five lucky people. Silly

Don’t stress out too much and stay happy for the new year’s! :bigsmile:

This has been my small way of getting back at dx for all the horrific customer service they’ve given me in the past. Besides, work has had me tied to a computer this entire week, so it helps get out all the frustration. I win… every day I play. :bigsmile:

Keep at it bros!

+10000000

I gave it a try the first day and realized that is not worth the effort. I can afford to pay full price but it was the fun of bargain hunting that got me to give it a try. Turns out, it wasn’t fun at all. It felt more like being played with.

I don’t like it when they offer a good deal but only to the first 100-200 people. The same thing always happens. A few people somehow take everything and most people get left out and annoyed.

If they were to offer 50% any three items for everyone, it would be more fair. I get the feeling that many of these people are stocking up and re-selling later.

I think thats a great idea. You should copy/paste this to DX CS and also post in their forum. Maybe they will listen…
