Last week the side for my countdown deal wasn´t running.
Who had the same problem?
I found it out while I was looking on it like a customer.

I'm not at all certain what you're talking about, but if you were looking on the German site, countdown only runs on US and UK sites.

And if you looked at the US or UK site from Germany, you wouldn't see a Countdown in progress, because the Amazon computers know where you are--German customers cannot take advantage of American or British Countdown deals. If you were running a Countdown in the US or UK and were yourself in Germany, you would have to look under "reports" to see your Countdown in progress.

(You don't mean "hacked" - you mean "messed up." "Hacking" is someone breaking into a computer account.)

Thank you for the beginning,

my Countdown deal was running at amazon.com. I saw it running not in US or UK.
I knew we all have different sites like DE too. This wasn´t my problem.
The screen was shaking like an old TV, so nobody had a chance to click the 0,99 Cent Buttom.
After all I thought this promotion was like "toxic waste" for my book "Baron" ...

So it means, no one saw this problem before ?

Greetings from good old Germany ;-)

I have two count down deals in the US that should be running and neither are showing.
I went into the US site (retail as a viewer) to check them.

If your IP address shows you are in Germany the site will not show those deals to you.

But Emily I saw the deal running. The only problem, the site was shaking.
If there were nothing at amazon.com maybe it would have been my german I.P. adress.
So it means nobody had this phenomena before ...

If your computer wasn't shaking, perhaps it was the euro?

You see my friend, now the British Pound is shaking.
And this will be a disaster for your Middle Class in England.
Labour Party and all experts from London told you this.
What the hell is wrong with my fellow torries to belief in the other lies?
Good luck to you all.
