Word of caution,

When it is time to pay and you are redirected to the PayPal site for log-in. Check that a secure connection has been established before you enter your email and password.

Tried several times with different browsers would not get a secure connection.

Even if it is legit problem please check you have a secure connection before entering your PP details and having them fly around the internet in the clear,.

Ah good to hear, hopefully must have been a temp glitch. Tried Chrome, Firefox and Opera no go with any of them for me.

Thank Ezarc.  I couldn't resist. 

I hope my connections were secure.  I checked at one point and it said https, but I didn't check every time a new page loaded.

Same here, I forgot to check too. If I am not wrong, I saw them advertise a few times here?

Can TS update his first thread to alert those who have not read the “possible” scam alert comment.

Its not just the https address, it needs the lock symbol showing (usually in the address bar), that a secure connection has been established. Very easy to miss these days. IIRC some of the early browsers changed the whole address field colour to green if it was a secure connection, wish they would do that now, much easier to see than a small lock!

I wasn’t paying too much attention to security at the time. I do check in the address bar to make sure it has the PayPal website address. I just changed my PayPal password for peace of mind.

Color me stupid, but can they get that info from me placing an order thru Paypal? Is there protection thru Paypal for this? I have an e-mail in to them, but if it’s true, by the time I receive an e-mail reply I may be broke Smile

My precaution was to prevent access to my account. The actual Paypal transaction is not revealing any personal info other than that needed for the transaction (ex. address, name, etc.)

Awesome. Personally, I think its a PR/marketing trick (in a positive way I mean) to get her website known and to generate a buzz/business. Seems legit so far!

It surprises me to see some of the names of contributors to this Forum who have purchased this light. Everybody likes a ‘deal’. Everybody hopes.

How can you resist a $2 sk68? (You can’t.)

Even if it takes 3 months to get here its well worth it. Heck if I can get enough sk68 clones ill probably replace all my ’9 led 3AAA cheapies’ that are littered throughout the house. Smile

I give away most of my SK68 lights, so any cheap ones I can get, I jump at it. I’m quite sure these will ship and actually arrive. Eventually, and I doubt anyone here is waiting on the edge of their seat with hands holding open the blinds watching for the mailman for an SK68. Most that ordered one on this deal already or have owned one/many before. Smile

Ordered as a guest as I could not get coupon to work as a member.

No acknowledgement of order from store or alert but I do have a receipt from Paypal Sad

OP, please update this thread topic as expired. Every time I see it I think I’m about to get another good deal, and buy another light, and it makes me hope it’s a different thread with a new live deal. Or perhaps I think it may be live again.

Can OP add an “EXPIRED” to the title of the post?

It keeps getting bumped, I keep getting excited (yes, I can be a touch dense) and the code is “no longer valid.”
