    New AEBike.com feature: Daily Deal

    Hello folks,
    Hopefully this isn't inappropriate to post here, just trying to get the word out.
    We at AEBike.com have started a new feature, the daily deal. Roughly every weekday we will pick a popular product from our catalog and offer it at an extremely low price, even far below our normally low prices. At the moment we have a killer price on a Cateye Astrale cycle-computer.
    The deal can always be accessed at this link: http://www.aebike.com/get/deal/
    Happy shopping!

    Great idea

    Very nice bonus from a company that already has good prices and excellent customer service.

    They do have good deals and located close to me, however I find their website to be cumbersome sometimes. Wouldn't stop me from buying, just some feedback.

    Great idea, the $7.50 shipping to me will probably kill the deal most of the time for me though.

    It's 7.50 for the first item, 75cents for each additional item. So just buy lots!
    Check back in a couple hours for a great deal on some 26" studded tires.

    Good to here about the shipping if I buy multiples. Thanks for the heads up on the studded tires, I'm gonna have to pick some of those up.

    Man, this is not going to be good for my bank account.

    Get a RSS feed. That way it'll be easy for us to find out what deal is going on.

    RSS Feed now active

    Thanks to your suggestion I have now implemented an RSS feed for the daily deal. You can find the link to it at the deal page, http://www.aebike.com/get/deal/

    Thanks!

    Hmm, thanks for the feedback. Could you do me a favor and tell me what browser and operating system you are using? I'd appreciate it so I can get this dialed in.
    Thanks!

    I'm using Firefox as well. When I click on the RSS icon I get a page that has this on the top:

    "
    This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below. "

    Then there is bunch of stuff below that that doesn't make a lot of sense to me. Hope that helps, I really want to get the RSS feed so I don't forget to check everyday.

    Hmm, you're probably using Firefox 1.5. A couple of suggestions:
    1 - Upgrade to Firefox 2.0, which was released last week (getfirefox.com). FF2 has much more robust RSS support and should 'just work'
    2 - Install a feed reader plugin to your firefox. I use Wiz RSS ( http://www.wizzcomputers.com/Welcome.php ). Viewing the feed should work fine on that, and it'll work better than what firefox comes with for your other feeds.

    I think I know how to make my feed work with 1.5 but i'm not sure if its feasible for me to do, I'll investigate a little.

    Thanks!

    The "Daily Deal" is a misnomer. It should be called the "Twice Weekly Deal". I notice they only put something new up once or maybe twice a week.

    This is not true at all. I have put up a new deal every week day since we started. They usually go up around 1:30pm EST, I'm working on the next one now, which will be our 14th deal since we started.
    Are you checking it via the RSS feed? If so, let me know and I'll investigate and see if it is not updating.

    Yes, I have been checking your RSS feed. Everyday I check Woot, SAC, and aebike. Woot changes everyday. SAC changes multiple times a day. And aebike changes once or twice a week.

    Hi djork
    Please email us at the main email address on our site and I will try to answer your questions.


    Also, can anyone else confirm whether or not the RSS feed works consistently for them? I have tried it using three different readers, and only one of them is having problems updating it frequently, and I'm having trouble finding any tech support for this on the web, posted in all the RSS forums I can find.
