50% off Ipads at Secret Sales from 16:00 on Friday!

I just saw a Facebook update from Secret Sales and then went on their website to see that they're offering 50% off the Apple iPads 16gb Wi-Fi + 3G Ipad from 4pm on Friday till Monday. It does say they only have limited availability, but you'll pick one up at a fantastic price if you want one. Apple products never seem to have money off, so 50% is massive in my opinion! Sorry, no idea of the exact price - on the website it just states that there will be 50% off the model.

Looking at the Apple site, I would suspect they'll be going for around £275 - an absolute bargain!

incredible if true! must be a catch tho?

Still too much money for an unnecessary gadget.

I honestly have no idea - it just says this is the deal on the secret sales homepage and they've just posted a facebook status update about it. I really don't think there'll be a catch, just a massive deal!

Do Secret Sales tend to not honour what they say? I've never really dealt with them before.

ok m8-Im not voting either way til I see it happen,seems too good to be true but thanks for the heads up

Not heard of Secret Sales.. why is this deal being voted cold?

when it sounds to good to be true..... you know the rest!!
dooyoo.co.uk/int…ws/

shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!! its a secret

50% off ipads!? LMAO!!!! This will not happen.

Or it will but they will have about 5 and 100's of thousands of people wanting one.

Probably got about 2 of them, but think of all the extra registrations they will get just because of this deal.

Where abouts in the UK is this, or is this online only, i am doing a secret sale at The Truman Brewery atm.

I'm voting cold. This is not a deal, it's a gamble!

If a deal's too good to be true then most likely it does'nt exist....how could they sell below the price they pay for stock and still make money ? unless Secretsales is run by a retired millonare who wants to give all his/her money away.... a tad unlikely in my opinion........

cold.

hmmmm, i'll keep tabs on this...

Thanks for the link.

Why do people fall for this garbage? Is it greed, stupidity or both?

Read the reviews before you waste your time - you won't be getting a half priced iPad.

The only thing you will get is shafted.

I have ordered from Secret sales and have received the items that I ordered with no problems. There is a long wait for delivery but, apart from that, I have had real and genuine bargains from them (and I don't work for them!!)

I have just phoned them and the lady who answered was very good.

She said the ipad will be delivered next day via ups.

They are selling 5-10 units for £264 Today and more tomorrow.

Apparently if you get order confirmation then you WILL get one...... Apparently.

After hearing this i am more confident of dealing wirth them.

ye but not confident in actually getting one tho since theres 5-10 units to a few thousand people. . .

Surprise, surprise!

"We are sorry, there are no iPads available to buy at the moment."

Absolute joke, the website crashes just as the deal is supposed to happen, then the deal completely disappears off their page. Their member numbers went up from about 24000 to 32000 in the past 2 hours just because of this, it's a complete lie.

i can't even load the site

What a load of sh**

I was continually clicking my invitation link every second between 3.55 and 4.00. Finally get in as soon as it is opening to the message "We are sorry, there are no iPads available to buy at the moment. We have limited availability but will be releasing more stock over the weekend. Become a Fan on Facebook to find out the next release time in advance"
Idiots

Have constantly been refreshing the page since a few minutes before 4pm to try to get the deal but it is impossible! Firstly, the iPad section completely disappeared off the screen at 15.59 and was nowhere at 16.00 and then the website has been down ever since. Wish I hadn't wasted my time. The people who get them must be very lucky!

Bit harsh that this deal is cold, though, and despite this gimmick Secret Sales is a genuine reputable retailer. I have bought several things from them before with no problem (obviously not iPads though).

latest message is:

"The last lucky person bought an iPad on 10 September 16:07"

Absolute rubbish.. I was on there dead on 4.00 as it started and there weren't any to buy!!!!!!!!!

Why? There is no deal.

These kind of publicity stunts to get more registrations and hits have the opposite effect IMO. Every just ends up hating the site/company.

i wonder if they lose out on normal sales by crashing their own site

Very frustrating1
I was actually on the order screen at around 11am, it must of been a mistake on the site!
I got a reminder e-mail to my iphone and it let me click on 'take me to the sale'.
I frikkin closed it though! Should have left ti open.

Oh well, it's like a bloody raffle.

What a load of crap, i've been trying to get onto the site constantly since 3:55pm and it's only just loaded up and they've all sold?

Groupola swindle all over again..

wtf?

"The last lucky person bought an iPad on 10 September 16:29"

Does it keep changing or what?

Agreed - CRAP! SIte fails to load constantly and just when it comes back they say the last one sold at 4:20 - just dont believe it - 30 minutes of my life I wont get back!

If you look at their facebook page, the last one sold at 16:07, then 16:20 and now 16:29?

Is there a way to add it to the basket or something? lol

Their shopping cart uses a reserve system thats also linked to the stock management in real time.
So someone must have added it to their basket and didn't check out until 16:29pm. . .
dunno why it would take someone 29mins to check out tho. . .
its all way too suspicious
