    I've been in contact with support and it turns out that coupons are only marked 'used' once payment completes. That means that even if you applied it first, if someone is later but has a faster connection (to Dx.com & payment provider), he'll win the item instead.
    My case was even worse. I accepted on PayPal for the amount of $0.01 for the item and $1.70 for shipping (total $1.71) but on return to Dx.com I was suddenly charged $17.51 instead!!! YES, AFTER(!!!) confirming on PayPal.

    Tbh the only way to make this a fair contest and not so that people with faster connections win, is by locking coupons to the user that applied it first.
    So once you hit apply and it is accepted, it is locked to you for a while (ie. 5 minutes, maybe more due to the timeouts). In this time you have to complete the payment process or it is freed again.
    This would be the most fair way to do this imo.

    Well atleast you didn't pay yet. In my case I got charged a sum of money I never agreed to; it charged full-price AFTER I confirmed the purchase on PayPal.
    But yea not only the system is flawed, the website can't even seem to handle this event.

    Luckily the cancel order button works fine.

    WHAT A SCAM!!! Even if you get the coupon, they charge you FULL PRICE.
    And even if you cancel you still pay for money conversion - usually 2*3%= 6% of FULL PRICE.
    Banks must love DX promotions!
    This is going to be a TRAP SCAM PROMOTION OF THE YEAR!!!

    But I think dx should seriously think of conducting it in a better way.
    The current way is out of reach of us.
