*You* know it's an April fools thing... and *I* know it's an April fools thing... but if (for whatever technical reason) the site ended up actually charging me $1,000,001 for it, somehow I don't think the good folks over at Visa's collection office are gonna just say "oh, it was just an April fool's misunderstanding, so there's no problem and you don't owe us the interest on that $1,000,001 charge".

Actually, you'd need to borrow 6, to also cover the shipping

I didnt use paypal, I tried 3x and it still shows available. you suck...
your order is NOT in.
possible problems with your order:

Order denied.
Whoops! Lucky for you that we just ran out of room in our money vault, so we can't take your million dollars.
But if you have that kind of money to throw after garbage like this, email jtoon@woot.com.
We can work something out...
Billing address does not match.
Credit card security number does not match.



Also, if you were using PayPal, it may be one of the following issues:

If your PayPal account is empty, and backed by a bank account rather than a credit card, it won't work. At this time, we don't accept eChecks, due to the 3-5 day delay prior to confirmation. You can either put money directly into your PayPal account, change your account to be backed by a credit

OMG - I almost peed my pants I laughed so hard. I was SO excited, I hit buy and then, thankfully, looked at the price and thought, "What the hell!" I should have known better than for a Blinged-Out Cabbage to be available at two minutes after twelve. lol

One of these days I will get a Blinged-Out Cabbage! I almost cried at work the other day when I went to the copier and came back and had missed it that fast.

I was hoping it would still let you buy the bag o' crap and just actually charge your card a reasonable amount like $4 ... damn.

I guess they're taking the day off? My hats off to them, but why waste a woot entirely?

I think they should have done the pig or something, would have been funnier and at least something you could purchase.

I wonder how many Wooter's went for this only to have their credit card provider decline it, then flag their accounts with a fraud alert. Now THAT is FUNNY!!!



Now, after recovering from almost having a heart attack and 'almost' scoring one (denied, hehe), I think it's pretty funny. I hope that many others when they open a web page and not sold out experience that same 'almost' heart attack....Nicely done, Monsieur Woot

Just found it is illegal to steal your children's organs for money. Maybe slavery will bring me the $1,000,000 I need for the woot.

Ok guys, I hate to break it to you, but they're not actually charging the credit cards. Everyone is getting a declined message.

By which I mean, they are not actually submitting the charges. You could use an Amex Black card which has no limit and it still would be declined. Because they are not allowing any sales.

Is this for Paris Hiltons impounded car? Does it come with Paris and (2) of her friends>? Might go for it if it means she has to do all her community service cleaning my house for the next month, and wear one of those really sexy ankle bracelets.

hmmmm.

Over 60 WoOts! and counting
