So how many of you guys succesfully purchased a Nexus 9 tablet yesterday and got half off during the flash sale? Well, I'm not one of them. As soon as I saw it posted on the web, I immediately tried to purchase one but to no avail. First I could not get connected then after a while, the page finally loaded but the 50% off sale was now just $50 off. i guess I wasn't fast enough.
Today, President of HTC America posted this apology on their site:
I wanted to personally apologize for the frustration some of you experienced with our first "flash" sale yesterday. The sale was intended to introduce a weekly promotion that HTC will run weekly through the holidays. In celebration of the launch of our Nexus 9 tablet, we decided to kick off "HTC Hot Deals" in a BIG way with a screaming hot deal on a limited quantity of these tablets. Simply put, the offer was very well received and the several hundred units that were allocated to this promotion sold out quickly.
I understand that our site did not function properly and caused frustration – and for that I apologize. With such a hot deal and short time to take advantage, the experience needs to be seamless. Our team is rectifying the systems issues that some experienced and we remain committed to bring you an exciting cadence of offers throughout holidays. We hope you were one of the many who got to enjoy the savings this time, but if not please do check back weekly.
All the best,
President, HTC America
Let's hope they get things working for future sales events.
