    I'm looking for someone who might be able to get a very very limited item that will go on sale on sunday. There are only 100 of them so they will go quick but I'm looking for someone here who probably has a way of being able to fill out everything really fast and get them (I don't know its worth a try haha). Thanks and PM me if you can help!

    I really was amazed at the demand for those limited edition specials.
    I knew there were collectors but never realized how large and how determined that market is.

    OP, I don't think anyone would help you get them. Whoever is lucky enough to get a pair of those sneakers will probably sell them for a great deal of money.

    It's huge - most people sell them on.

    Very good marketing strategy by the sportswear companies too.

    So basically the OP is asking if one of us could send him some of our own money.

    Why you gotta be so negative? This happens to an item that I really want and means something to me and I'm paying in hopes of getting it. Geez.

    I'm not being negative - I am being realistic.

    Lets say you will pay someone $10 to grab one of those 100 limited edition sneakers.

    Why would someone who is able get a pair do that for you for $10, when they could resell them for a minimum of twice the price?

    Some of those limited editions resell for $1000s - but you want someone to essentially donate their potential profit on a pair to you.

    I've an ndc bot that I coded myself. Not the usual extension thing.

    Supports multiple ndc accounts, auto-login, uses twitter streaming api, you can use early links or product style search links and many more features. The only problem is that the captcha has to be manually filled in but we've been getting great success with it.

    Add me on skype: s.toaster.

    He's not being negative. Those sneakers are going to end up on ebay selling for upwards of six figures. Unless you are extremely rich, you wouldn't be able to afford to pay someone to get them for you.

    Ok wow I liked this forum before but I guess since I'm going to get attacked on here never mind. You don't know how much I was paying for somebody to get them. I could have been willing to pay hundreds of dollars for somebody to get them for me... my grandfather could have worked on the Apollo missions. I guess I won't ever request anything on here again, because obviously everybody always assumes the worst. I got 1 PM with somebody asking how much I would pay. 1 PM. How many people commented on this forum with NO KNOWLEDGE of that? You are included.
