Catch Of The Day (COTD) is holding one of its periodic 'Flash sales' at 11am today. There are some tempting potential offers — $399 for the Galaxy S III, $299 for a 16Gb third-generation iPad, $39 for a basic Kindle — but as usual, most buyers are going to be disappointed!
Catch Of The Day is basing the sale on Facebook 'likes'; the six offers which get the most'likes will be made live at 11am this morning. Based on current voting, the three deals above will get the nod, along with a $20 500GB WD hard drive, a $229 Nexus 7 tablet and a $299 Canon EOS twin lens kit.
Previous experience suggests that COTD only has extremely limited quantities of the most heavily-discounted items. Site performance can also be slow when thousands of people hit it simultaneously seeking bargains. If you are tempted, make sure you have a COTD account — and if the deal you want isn't available, don't be suckered into buying something else.
