[Rant] Newegg out of stock.

I was wanting to get a SSD drive. I got a email this mourning form Newegg advertizing a Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3/120G 120 g drive for $59.99. When I got to the web page it was sold out. This was about 9 am this mourning.
If I was not wanting one they would have plenty.

I have tried calling them. First time I had them to call me in 18 to 37 min. It been 1 hr now.They maybe using a 800 number which I have blocked. I called again and chose I'll hold but it would be 30 to 40 min. I tried the on line chat it been 10 min now.
There nothing on the web site about rain checks. I going to check tomorrow and see if they have it stock.

Its likely a shell shocker.

It was one the 24 hours only deals. It happen just as was about to by one. If it is in stock tomorrow I'll be thinking it was a bait to get to the site.

No conspiracy just only a certain number to sell at that price.

It was just my luck that I wanted to buy a ssd drive. They had a very good deal and they was sold out by the time I got on line. Monday or Tuesday they had a Samsund SSD 256gb $60 off of the normal price of $199.00. The deal went of at noon and that was when I tried to buy one. No luck the code was Invalided.
I will eventually get one.

Could be worse.

I once ordered a regular priced product from newegg, they stated it was shipped, had a tracking number that showed it went from California to Tennessee, then sent me an email saying the shipment will be stopped as the item is out of stock.

To this day it is still the first time and only time an out of stock item had been shipped to me.
