Yes! Got a couple iPhone cases on sale, for the prices they SHOULD sell at normally. (Anyone else think cases' retail prices are absolutely absurd?)

Thanks for the heads-up, MR!

I also tried Zagg but did not order due to the site's problems. They obviously did not expect that much traffic yesterday!

Wow, Zagg website is getting totally hammered under the load today. Very unresponsive. Maybe they're running it on a single G4 Mac mini? :rolleyes:

Turns out that even though Zagg’s order page never said my order went through, I now have 3 orders for the exact same thing. Calling them gives you an automated message that says their regular hold times just to talk to someone are 10 to 20 minutes.

I've left them 2 voicemails so far but I haven't heard anything back, and there's no way to cancel orders on their web site.

Looks like I may have to do a charge-back with my bank if I don't hear back from them in the next couple of days.
