General Questions

Has this promotion changed?

Yes. Due to the incredible volume of traffic stemming from the popularity of this feature, we have made some changes to Amazon Customers Vote.

What are the major changes?

You are eligible to buy only the deal that you voted for. Choose your deal carefully, because you will be eligible to receive a claim code for only the deal that you voted for. If you vote for the deal that gets the most votes in the end, you will be eligible to receive a claim code only for the winning deal. If you vote for one of the runner-up deals, you will be eligible to receive a claim code only for that deal, at the runner-up discount. (The runner-up discount won’t be as ridiculous as the winning discount, but it will still be pretty darn good.) Remember: as before, you can only vote once, and you cannot change your vote once you have made it.

You need an authorized credit card on your account. You will need to have an authorized credit card on file with Amazon.com in order to be eligible to receive a claim code. For Round 3, that means you must make sure you fulfill this requirement before voting closes. (You can read more about this in the Credit Card Authorization section.)

There is no more race to buy: the claim codes will be distributed only to randomly selected customers. There is an overwhelming demand for these great deals, and we want to ensure that all our customers have the same opportunity to get a claim code. We will randomly select a group of customers who voted for each item, and only those customers will receive a claim code to purchase that item at the Amazon Customers Vote discount during the 24-hour buying period. So you no longer have to worry about being at the site at a particular time of day to get a chance to purchase one of these great deals.

How will I know if I am one of the randomly selected customers?

If you are one of the randomly selected customers--and you must have an authorized credit card on file with us in order to be selected--we will e-mail you an invitation to return at any time during the buying period to purchase the deal that you voted for. You can also check the Amazon Customers Vote page (www.amazon.com/customers-vote) at any time during the buying period to determine whether you are one of the randomly selected customers. You can come at any time during the buying period to make your purchase; we will hold your claim code for you.
