They launched their sale and now their website is maxed out and reports server is too busy. Nice bit of poor planning. Epic fail.

Wex's website has the same issue. You'd have thought they'd have spun up a few more web servers ready for the launch of the sale.

Are you sure it was their servers? On Christmas Eve I had trouble connecting to a number of web sites. I think it was a problem with the broadband providers equipment. I couldn't even connect to their web site to see if there was a fault report. Today everything is back to normal. Probably just needed someone to switch everything off and back on again.

yes, I'm sure it was their websites. all other sites and services worked fine. they'd clearly failed to plan for the sale and overloaded their servers.
