SF Free Day 2012


#1

Shhhh… Don’t tell anyone :wink: And pray that they’ve upgraded their servers since last year…


#2

So, if I understand it correctly, you buy stuff, and if you win, you get up to $100 of it for free?

Very interesting marketing strategy.


#3

waste of time. Tried it two times can’t even get to the order page.


#4

i don’t think you have to buy something to enter. free day is so popular you’ll be lucky to get a response from their web server at all. they use the event as a load test of their servers.


#5

Do people actually get to buy or just keep seeing browser time outs all day ?


#6

I think this time you will take a quiz, and if you answer the question(s) you get a coupon code for $100 and have 60 days to spend.

Should reduce the server load a lot.

I’ve never actually gotten past the timeouts… But, it does sound like this year is going to be done a little different. From the comments on the page it sounds like it’s not going to be a quiz but more of a every 10K clicks wins or something. I never expect to win but it’s fun to spend a few minutes and maybe get lucky.
