At first, I ignored this thread, thinking that it was silly. Then, after a lot of thought, I decided to get an item that I knew was in stock a week ago with my buyout to review it. Guess what? Discontinued. : / It really really annoyed me that it had discontinued without warning - at least put some kind of notice up on the product page about that! I would have bought it then had I known. Now, instead, I'll be buying it for more money from a competitor.
I mean, don't get me wrong, EF is still a great place to shop with a huge selection, but it would have been nice to be warned if an item is going to be discontinued soon. I seriously would have bought it had I known. : /
