I had to punch my email address back in (the one i got the message in), and it showed up in my cart. I guess I must be missing something, as i had no difficulty.

PLEASE HELP
tell me what I'm doing wrong.

1.I got the following e-mail message:
Quote:
Woohoo! Your SwarmSale has completed!
Now you have only a short time (15hrs) to add this item to your cart
and take advantage of the SwarmSale price.
Follow this link to add the product to your cart after entering the code (30293) in the swarm sale area.
http://www.hobbyking.com/SwarmSale.asp?id=30293
2. I click on the link and it brings me to http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...en=30293#swarm
there is nothing in my cart, the "30293" is in the box and the price says $14.95
3. I click on join
that window goes away,
there is still nothing in my cart,
the window at the bottom changes to join or create a swarm sale,
shows "your_email555@hotmail.com"
"CODE NOT VALID" in the code area.
4.I type in my email address, as I type in the code 30293, the email changes back to "your_email555@hotmail.com" and I get the rotating WAIT signal that won't go away.

the cart is still empty.

I tried again after logging out. followed same procedure.
e-mail link brings me to the page where the code is already there.
click on JOIN, then add to cart and it's still $14.95
No discount here!!

I wonder if either the code expired (I've seen it say 12 hours in one place and 24 hours in another) or if the code is only valid for the first 6 users?
It does work, just strangely. Heck, I still have the item sitting in my cart at $12...(once you add it, it stays there at swarm price until you remove it, lose your cart, or buy it).

Try using google chrom instead of IE if you are. If its flash based, IE ...sucks...
Long shot, but maybe?

These are on backorder but they are arriving steadily every week and placing a backorder for them is the only reliable way to get them. I have one so far and it is fabulous and have been flying with it for several weeks without a single glitch.

I tried to contact HK to help. they have not responded. so nor will I.

I have been getting the same 6ch deal from oomodel.com, $15 shipped when I buy 4 at a time so HK can take a hike with their swarm sale.

I am using Twitter to inform people of swarm sale, unsing hashtags #swarmsale and #hobbyking with the description of item and url to access the swarm sale.

If you use something like Seesmic 2 you can create a kind of monitoring tool to manage new swarmsale on hobbyking.

What do you think about his idea ?

1. Use Twitter : #swarmsale #hobbyking Turnigy DS480 Digital Servo 1.85kg 20.16$ http://bit.ly/c1PcNK

With the hashtag #swarmsale and #hobbyking i can manage automatic search in twitter about this topic. Also i give a product description, price and short url to get access to the swarmsale on HobbyKing.

2. Use Seesmic2 (for instance) : to follow swarmsale announces i manage the searches with his ashtag. I will thus have a permanent list of swarmsale occuring, with date/time of annoucement, and be able to choose wich one to join.

This is a "crowdsourcing" example. The bigger the number we are using this the better our chance are to get access to the right offer in time.

Here is a sample of my Seesmic2 desktop application showing a search on #swarmsale hashtag in twitter.
