    I had received hostgator black friday offer details as an affiliate. It says 80% off on everytime till supply lasts. AND IT LASTED JUST 5 MINUTES???

    And during that 5 minutes, their server was overloaded. I had to refresh like 10 times to load that page. So obviously I couldn't place order.

    Dirty promotion!!!

    We have no where, no man, no way to complain them about their Offer getting off in a few mins! :)

    These threads would be thus useless :(

    Grab 50% offer, and that is the only thing what is possible :D

    Yeah I can't believe this many people woke up, only to be let down. I went to Bluehost. Normal price of 6.95/m for only 3.95. Basically the same package as hostgator, and no problems with the server.

    They told me it was sold out in few minutes and that they are currently having problem with their server. So I had no other choice but to get the 50% off instead.

    I am now in chat and have told the operator that what they are doing is illegal and is called a bait and switch. Reporting them to the FCC and the FBI. Chat session is just hanging there with no reply. What can the guy say?
