It has been a long time since this writer has seen the Amazon web site so bogged down just a few minutes ago ran a promotion in which 1,000 Microsoft Xbox360 Core systems were sold to lucky consumers with a mere $100 price tag.  The deal went live at 11AM PST but definitely did not last very very long -- all 1,000 units were probably gone in 60 seconds!

Leading up to the Amazon promotion, customers had to vote for four deals which they wanted Amazon to provide.  The four possible deal choices were:

    * 1,000 Xbox 360 Core Systems for $100 each
    * 2,500 Mongoose dual-suspension bikes for $30 each
    * 2,000 Barbie in The 12 Dancing Princesses Interactive Genevieve Dolls for $10 each
    * One-year of Amazon Prime plus a $100 promotional certificate to Amazon's Toy Department for $40

Even though the Xbox 360 Core System won in a landslide, Amazon went ahead and offered all of the deals anyway.  If you are going to scramble off to Amazon to check out the deals, don't bother -- they are all sold out!

Although I wasn't lucky enough to get one for $100, a friend of mine quickly sent me an IM informing me that he had indeed gotten one of the consoles.

Did anyone luck out and get an Xbox 360 Core for $100?
