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.



This year, Amazon.com starts things off with your choice of one of three PS3 bundles.



Round 1: Go Blu-

  • 500 Blu-ray Sci-Fi Bundles (includes: 80GB PS3, "Firefly: The Complete Series" Blu-ray Collection, PS3 Blu-ray Disc Remote, and "Star Wars: The Force Unleashed" game) $199

This is just weird. I guess it's a good way to get people on the site though.
