Same. Had it typed and entered within 2 seconds of it appearing and saw the "add to cart" which i clicked and it denied me immediately. Didnt even have a chance, waste of time.

I don't understand how this new game works..does it just turn into a Boggy Old (Obese) Creature in your cart if you win??

OR Do you actually have to go to the url that appears?

So what's the secret to getting one? I was there the moment it came up, put in the address and hit buy one over and over and over and nothing. So what's the secret?

Is anyone still on a waiting list from the last Bag of Candy? My purchase still says checking inventory, but when I went to purchase one this time it said "all duplicate orders cancelled" Did I get one, and I don't know it???????

2. Don't click on buy one more than once, otherwise you're going to reload the buying process.

Same here... Less than two seconds and it was sold out? Woot should call this the LOAD OF CRAP game. Impossible for a human to be any faster....

Bahahahah! I was the first sucker!

Here's what I did:

1) Kept a separate browser window open next to the first window, making sure to hit up my Your Account link every 15 minutes or so to be sure I wouldn't have to enter a password.
2) Already had bit.ly typed in the address bar
3) F5F5F5F5F5 in the first window as the timer counted down
4) As soon as the screen changed, I typed the rest of the URL
5) Crap!

I think they need to screw with people and put the Bandolier of Carrots on some of the other pages, not just the main Woot item. Might slow down some of the superhuman typists that somehow get it as soon as it comes up.

These are on Daily Steals for less, and probably a much longer time.

I think the majority of us did this. The only crappy thing we got was a crappy time.

It is tougher these days.. and they only do like 25 at a time. When there are hundreds of folks all hitting it at the same time, it's going to go fast.

In the old days, they did a lot more in a sale, but it was only a one-shot deal and usually in the morning. If you missed it, tough luck. It's nice that they give us a few more chances these days.

But, the Bandolier of Carrots are really just a marketing trick any more.. to get people to spend more time on the site and look around more. When woot! did them, they were more for fun, but Amazon saw their real value ;)
