Another day, another Catch Of The Day sale. As always, there’s incredibly limited stock — and a payment catch to boot.
Catch Of The Day loves a bit of hype, and its latest sale — ostensibly to celebrate its seventh birthday — has a variety of technology gear at quite significant discounts. $149 could buy you, variously, a 16GB iPad Mini, 2013 Nexus 7 or a GoPro HERO 3: Silver Edition Camera, with the promise of more deals to be revealed today.
There are two big catches, though. Firstly, stock is limited. Is anyone surprised by that?
Secondly, there’s only one payment method.
You can only pay via V.me, Visa’s digital wallet that we’ve looked at previously on Lifehacker. Given the prominence of the V.me logo within Catch’s own logo and the limited stock, it appears to be more of a spruik for a service than a sale that will be worth chasing in depth.
If you were keen on a bargain, in other words, you’d need to have a fair bit of patience — Catch has something of a reputation for going into server meltdown for major sales — and have V.me already set up in place.
