Today Show Steals and Deals: Leaving Customers Feeling Scammed?Emma Brady
The Today Show Steals and Deals promotions have been a big hit this holiday season. Within minutes of appearing on the Today Show segment promoted retailers have found their websites crashing and have left customers feeling disappointed.
Are the Today Show Steals and Deals a great deal or a big ripoff?
The Today Show promotions are definitely a great deal if you are fast on the keyboard and ready to start typing the minute they hit the morning show. The deals have proven to be a bit too much of a good thing for some of the smaller retailers whose websites just can’t handle the traffic being funneled to them after a mere mention on the hit show.
The biggest disappointment of the holiday Today Show Steals and Deals was definitely the Radio Shack GPS promotion which sold out of 10,000 units in only a few minutes. Unfortunately these deals are so great that everyone wants to get a piece of them which will ultimately leave loads of other potential buyers disappointed.
Personally I was able to snag both the World Port Seafood Prized Catch Collection and the Aeropostale Belted Fur Trim Puffer Coat from last week’s deals! The deals are definitely a steal, but you have to be fast on the trigger to grab one before they sell out!
