Lol. My mom made me drive and right when I turned the engine on I saw the bag when I refreshed.. got to the processing page... Order is NOT in.

Third try now... 2nd time going to processing page with denial.

I'm starting to give up now.. way too many people for way too little waves.

I think I'll just buy myself an Airzooka right now.

2001 sold? I'm hoping for another... hopefully there's less than 500 people trying to grab a bag by then.

People! Stop making multiple accounts! It's NOT fair!

Eeeeeeeeeee!! I got one! So fracking excited! This will be #4 for us.

I can't wait to see what we get. I was so jealous last time of all of the vacuums, especially since mine is on its last leg, er, hose, but it's the anticipation that makes it all worth it. My 8yo daughter was convinced last time that we were going to get an ipad. lol It's funny how quickly she was satisfied with her flying monkey.

Congrats to all who got one (and fingers crossed for those who missed it)!

I think woot! should increase the number of crapbags to like 10,000 per wootoff, but have 7,500 of the crapbags be empty and just make a sad trombone sound when you open them.

In fact, and empty bag that makes a sad trombone noise when you peek inside would probably be better than the normal crapbag contents.

Now, after trying 4 times, I still haven't gotten one, mostly due to Woot's technical issues (page buffering, not handling PayPal correctly, etc).

Now, you've just got a whole chat room full of pissed off people.

I hope you're happy, Woot! :P



Are you kidding? Woot lives for this kind of response. Where have you been? Their servers aren't crashing, they're selling them fast, and people are mad. I'm sure Woot couldn't be happier.

Did anybody notice that the quantity before this latest Bunnies Ogling Carrots was 2,160 and it is now 2,001? Did people that got them earlier, get them taken away?

If they're such crap why are still buying them? Someone else would be happy to take yours. I haven't got one yet... but I'd like to. I see people with like 20 of them and you trying to score 2 of them in the same woot off and just get frustrated.

Second time I've gotten the old "Your order is NOT in". On one hand it has been the smoothest ordering process for a Bunnies Ogling Carrots ever, but on the other hand it has been the smoothest ordering process for a Bunnies Ogling Carrots ever...

My question is to you folks... I think I entered my CVV wrong during the order (transposing two numbers). Not certain. Am I in the clear with the above confirmations, or is there a chance it's still cancelled in the future due to my possible error?



You're good. It would not have gone through if you entered the wrong CC number: you would not have received a confirmation nor an email.

Congrats!

Perhaps for those who didn't get one, it would make you feel better to be reminded that it really is 3 pieces of crap (most of the time). The last time I got one, it contained:
1 Bug Zapper Racquet - broken battery cover
1 Pop-Up/Pop-Down Lawn Sprinkler
1 Lock & Lock 11oz Container - cracked lid
1 2012 SI Swimsuit Calendar (wife loved that one)
1 "Sea Chariot" T-Shirt Ladies Large (daughter's new night shirt)
1 "Reading Rocket Ship" T-Shirt Ladies Large - still sitting in the box it came in
1 crappy Black Duffle Bag (made in China)

I think the "servers aren't crashing" thing is most disturbing.

Oh, I long for the good old days when, even if you missed the baggie, you could tell one hit because Woot crashed for 15-20 minutes. ;-)

    I promise I'll actually post a picture of what I get in it when it arrives. I've been too lazy to do that with my last two Bags of Crap, but with this one I'm obliged to do so since there was only one (so far)!

    Btw, Woot, I've loved the quality and variety in the recent Bags of Crap! In my very first Barrel of Crops (January) I got one of those Roku devices, and it's now my favorite part of my entertainment center. And in the Barrel of Crops from last month I got an awesome set of hiking bags and various other items I actually had a use for.

    Thanks! The anticipation should keep my spirits up when finals week nears.

    Wyoming, Y U no bag any craps?

    I saw it reach 2624 then go back to 2601 then now it shows 2001 total craps. What's up with that?

    Saw the same thing 2 days ago when it showed like 1600 only to go back down to 500. Strange these new woot/amazon servers.

    I'm not sure how it checks how may sold but I think it's related to how many people click the confirm order instead of to how many actual items are sold. So they have to roll it back to the right number after it's all said and done.

    --------------
    Actually Ive been reading the boards and half of these people are happy. 2,001 people to be exact. Just because you havent gotten one doesnt mean noone has. Spreading the chances out was obviously a much better idea by woot. Cause if you were sleeping at 2am for the first one you had a chance at 330pm for the second one and if you were busy for that one then you had a third chance the following day at 11am but then if you missed that one then you could try again at the 630am one and well then now was the 240pm one. Im sure you see what I mean. The way it was before, if you missed the 2am one then sorry better luck next month! Atleast this time its a wider range of times to hit the jackpot and with smaller batches its easier on the servers too.

    Dont listen to the whiners woot! you're doing an awesome job!

    After the first offering, it said 1 sold. After the second offering it was 501. After the 3rd offering it was 1,001. After the 4th offering it was 2,160. Now after the 5th offering it is 2,001. I think the 4th offering should have been 1,501.

    Well, what I would probably do right now is to say that there isn't another Bunnies Ogling Carrots that's coming out so that i'll be the only one around when the next one comes! :D

    No, really. I'm really depending on less people right now.

    Question: Can people who already got a Bunnies Ogling Carrots this month can get to the order page still? I think this messes up the whole "quantity" thing if it does.
