    Hey guys,

    I know there are many thread about this HostGator BS deal of the year.
    Same like others, i am damn piss off because i cant get the dedicated server at 80% rate!

    And to make things worst, the deal only last for 5-10 minutes.
    Honestly if my pc slow with all the traffic queuing at their site, i believe other people also having the same issues right?

    Is there anyone in this earth that doesnt have any problem accessing the site and having the comfort to click the buy button without need to wait or refresh so many times?

    So basically WHO actually manage to bought the package under the 80% deal?

    If you are 1 of those MILLIONS who manage to get the 80% deal, PLEASE RAISE YOUR HAND....

    Let me know what spec of pc/connection are you using or this promo is purely BS all the way.


    Cheers!

    Hmm if i'm looking at the marketing point of view, i assume that this is just a tactic or strategy to them, and i dont believe there is ONE PERSON in this world manage to bought that package.

    They most probably and purposely create the huge buzz on the 80% and using the expertise of affiliate marketeer to promote their brand/promotion.

    At the end of the day they only have the 50% promo since the 80% is just a dummy. Anyway who ever end up frustrated with the 80% will still HAVE to buy the 50%.

    Just imagine if they didnt mentioned about the 80% and only inform us about the 50%. I believe their sales would be lesser compare to this tactic....

    Yes people advertised, try to make profit in many ways from their 80% discount, but many say that when they were doing it, hostgator when really slow and had issues, but when they stopped trying to get it, it went at normal speed, just a silly tactic of theirs to get them more popular and get themselves more sales...

    Nahhh...that is all BS. Not that i hate them, they are still the best hosting co.

    Let see later i bet they will shoot an email/blog.press release saying that "A TOTAL OF 1000 MANAGE TO GRAB THE 80% DISCOUNT" bla bla bla...

    I really want to see and to know the exact number of people that really manage to buy the package.

    Anyone here in BHW?

    I got it, but I have a really good pc/connection at the time. I posted a pic to prove it in another thread. Hearing that there were only 100 is pretty disappointing. I wish all of BHW could've taken advantage of it =(

    I wasn't able to get it but then when I looked around, however I did get geek hosting for $10 for one year from certified*hosting.c*o*m

    Geek hosting is equivalent to the baby plan on Hostgator

    What most did not realize is that the deal was for the FIRST month only unless you decided to pay for the whole year or two years.

    It did not apply to monthly payments
    .

    That was not made clear in the emails that went out. It was on the sales page as you went to order. *applies to first month only

    Not a clear sales message at all. Still love them though. Always helpful and FAST.

    The first mth is only applicable for the VPS and Dedicated Server but for shared and reseller you can either choose for first month or up to 3 years and still get the 50% or the BS 80%

    Guest what, they didnt meet the quota and they expand it to Cyber Monday with 50% on the table. The email have been sent out...
