I participated in the sale last year, and items were removed from my cart before I had a chance to purchase. How can I avoid this?

Unfortunately, many of the items featured in the sale are available in very limited quantities. If you place one of these items in your cart and continue shopping, the item may sell out during that time and will consequently be removed from your cart. The Super Sale follows the same rules as the Amazon.com site, where items must be purchased and checkout must be completed before that item is reserved.
