It's the most wonderful time of the year.
Actually, while it is the holiday season, it really sucks. Look at the economy, the stock market, job losses, and earnings reports for many companies. But it is the time of the year for tne annual Amazon.com Customers Vote promotion.
How does it work?
- Step 1: Vote.
Browse our six rounds of great products, and vote for the ones you'd like to buy at an amazing discount.
- Step 2: Check E-mail.
Check your e-mail the day before each buying round to see if you've been randomly selected to participate in the race to buy.
- Step 3: Go!
If selected, make sure you come back and log-in early on race day. We will have many more participants than deals, so the race is on. Good luck!
Just remember, even if you qualify in Step 2, you still have to "race" other entrants to get the deal. You're not assured of the deal even with an email in Step 2.
