Is this an Amazon Lightning Deals glitch or a rip-off?
Several times now, I've been diligently watching Amazon's Lightning Deals for items that have interested me. Last week I saw one which "Expired" 2 seconds after becoming available, which was almost certainly a glitch. But annoyingly, there have now been two items which I've seen become available, then sell out and have "Waitlist Full" literally within seconds (and never showing the "__% claimed" bar). I understand some of these are hot deals, so it's not inconceivable that they sold out that fast. But the fact that they immediately sell out AND have a "full" waitlist make me wonder if there's something else going on here, like Amazon only selling 1 of the item. Has anyone else noticed this?
I suppose my new strategy will be to just add an item I'm interested in to my cart IMMEDIATELY, and then take a look at whether it's "sale" price is good enough to justify a purchase.
