    Had my alarm set up 10.55. I had been trying to add the Oneplus buds pro from first second of 11.00 until 11.08.
    Two devices, one laptop with wifi. My phone with stable internet service. Both says too many people buy at same time until they are out of stock. Never gonna buy a single item again from OP.

    I didn't even know there's a flash sale going on. Got a notification 3 minutes before it ended that it's going to happen right now. Idiots. Of course it was sold out. Btw I'm in Canada but since there's no topic in the Canada forum I thought I answer here instead.

    You are right, It is fake. I had this item already in my cart at price of $149.99 before the flash sale started. I refreshed my cart right at 11:00:00, and it clearly showed the item in my cart with the price changed to $19.99. I immediately click "place the order", then it said out of stock. All operation was within 2 seconds. Later, when checking the webpage, it says "in stock" again, but when you place the order, it became out of stock. This happened a few times then I realized it is fake. I made a little research online and found this is a common marketing strategy where the online store make this fake sale to attract potential customers. No one actually got the deal or perhaps just a few. I was planning to get this deal and buy a flagship oneplus phone on Thanksgiving day. However, I lost my trust in this brand. I'll go with other brand.

    It was a very limited quantity item, I was able to grab a pair. 500 with numerous people, not everyone will be able to get it, definitely not fake.

    Here's the update. After failing to get a "Black Friday Sale" at oneplus that actually has nothing for sale, and feeling being fooled and having my time wasted, I bought an iPhone last night. The value of iPhone is not just the device itself, but also the quality of service, quality of apps, and the promise and professionalism from the manufacturer.

    I'm not sure why you didn't get the Black Friday sale as sale is still on and you can buy it very easily. I'm sharing two screenshots for your reference so that you can buy them. Let me know if you need more info. I've added two options 1. OnePlus power pro including OnePlus buds pro, OnePlus 9 Pro, and OnePlus watch along with $200 coupon and 2. OnePlus combo including buds pro with $20 coupon.

    These may not be completely fake but OnePlus probably reserves only 10-100 items, so only few get actual product others are left sulking. I completely agree, these promos are getting very annoying, why bother trying unless you have nothing else important to do.
