Huge half off sale at DealExtreme!

We've seen, taken advantage of, missed out on, and cursed the poorly executed special 50% off sales at certain dealers like Wallbuys  but there is one coming up that will last for 5 days and from a long standing dealer.  From May 15 to May 20 DX is having a 50% off sale on over 40,000 items!  I was chatting with Sandy last night and she told me about it.  Looks like she started a thread for it in the commercial sellers spot. here.  This sale looks HUGE.  You have a week to start saving your pennies and dollars. Wink

 

I posted a quick blurb in the deal alert thread but figured I'd make another post here to make sure as many folks see it as possible.

Thanks for sharing, definitely interested, I just hate how long they take to ship stuff. Takes them almost a month before stuff arrives.

I was planning on placing an order next month. Now, I will need to get my wishlist ready early.

On my last order, it took DX about 4 days to ship it out. About a week for it to get through the mail and about 8 weeks to go through customs.

I can’t blame DX about that.

There last 50% off five day sale was one that I spent a lot of time trying to take advantage of but failed each time. You had to put $100 exactly worth of stuff in your cart and be one of the first so many people to pay for it. Well it was never me and I tried all five nights and waited up and did the whole song and dance (jitterbug I think it was) but no luck.

Who knows maybe this one will be different. If so it will be the first time I order from them. I have looked at stuff there for years but always found a better deal someplace else.

Well thanks for the heads up both and the sale and so that I expect a good long wait if I do order.

Cool I’m hoping it’s a good one. If they have some good things I’ll be buying.

 site says they have 80,000 products so i guess it's a half off ...half of what they have .

 

  With 40,000 items at half price they have to have something I need ....

Considering they have an old price for majority of items un-updated for years and over-expensive for others, they might even get near ebay/fasttech prices that way!
What more – you might even get your items before Christmas!

I might check it but knowing 99.98% of their listings is useless crap, keeps my expectations low.

hmm.. yeah i remember that stupid total $100 in your cart sale.. i didn’t get it either.
hopefully it will be simple as WB’s 50% new year’s sale.. REAL SAVINGS on flashlights

The only way to do a great work is to love what you do.

I think the items will be carefully picked.
So – please – don’t buy crap, even if it’s 50% off.
But with these numbers – it’s more about making a mistake and honoring the orders – and that’s what BLF is about after all! Wink

That $100 exactly sale was a waste of time. I only tried it the first two days and gave up. Never got anything. By contrast, I had good luck with Wallbuys and they ship much faster than DX.

Is anyone else having trouble knowing which items are 50% off? Sad

I m hoping this thread is for real.

50% off is a good thing.

Let’s go Deal Extreme. Is this going to happen?

The lighter the brighter the better.
