Woo got one, this is exciting, and for the new people who thought it is a prank, its not they do this every year and hide super discount codes in the pictures or riddles, it was a secret! this year, people that dont come out of there shell, dont like salt, etc. etc. it was in the description. Happy I got one though, cant wait to find out what I get and what everyone else gets too! I picked for female skydivers though. lol

I'm confused. I rapidly figured out the third shipping code, inputted it and it hung there for 21 minutes. Sigh. Thanks, Woot.

I saw the carp coming, I was here at exactly 1:00:00am (When it updated), and the server overloaded at 1:00:05am. Maybe you can skip the helicopter part and use some of that fat mil to buy a better server, cause we needs our carp!

So, the order page finally loaded for me. I figured out the code from the description (I figured there would be one), and I put in my credit card security code. Then, I click submit. It takes a while to load, but it eventually does. Then what happens? No confirmation page, straight to the homepage it redirects me. Yes, I put in the correct security code. Yes, I used the correct coupon code.

What's the deal, woot? The item wasn't sold out. I tried again, and by the time it loaded the SECOND time I tried to order, it was indeed sold out by then. But it didn't sell out for another 5-10 minutes after my first attempt.

What's the dealio, yo?

Jebbus God Man....I swear, I get hosed every freakin' time. An assload of Woots and not a single freakin' box of chorizo...EVER!

I give up. Hell, even the Woot-Off lights I ordered were duds.

I want to know how omnic0n figured this out in 11 seconds... I call cheat.


quality posts: 4 Private Messages diefldrmas

Okay this embrangles thier servers were hung so I had to wait 20 minutes and I miss out on this. I played by the rules and they sell out because their server farm is miss managed,

Figured out the right code, but didn't type it in right the first time, and now I'm crapless. One day...

24 x woots (0 Bunnies Ogling Carrots )
23 x shirts (18 Random )
.5 x wine (split order)
5 x sellout (mandatory parentheses)
1 x kids (did I win yet?)

NOT AGAIN!!!.... I want to congratulate all those who actually got in on this But i still dont understand what i am doing wrong. This time it stayed on the 'i want one' page forever and finally switched to the information page and i immediately inserted my security code which for some reason never shows on a woot off and then,,,and then,,,immediately the SOLD OUT page came on....its such fun, but a bit (actually more than a bit) disappointing. And to think, here i was all set for the million dollar delivery fee.

That was evil woot! IM NEVER BUYING A SINGLE THING FROM WOOT AGAIN! haha... It just happens to fall on April fools day, good thing im not joking...

I got so excited I could feel the retching coming from by BODYCAVITY! No, please...not again...then....GABBAGABBA!!! I felt like a CAMEL that had stalked the arid desert as slow as a a secret! and then...

...got a Bustin' out chainsaws!

I almost got one made it all the way to shipping, took me 20 minutes but no luck! For the first time in ages I was actually signed out of woot better luck next year! Coupon code was a secret!


quality posts: 0 Private Messages monkeytrash32

I wonder if anyone actually tried to buy this without entering the hidden shipping coupon code. And if so, I wonder if they will be held responsible for paying the $1,000,003 (I hope not). I also wonder if Matthew will actually show up at their house in a helicopter (I doubt it). Whatever it is, after 4.5 years of wooting and many many unsuccessful attempts at buying GUPPY, I finally got my first bag! yay


quality posts: 0 Private Messages dasarp

Aaaaaaaaaaaaarg. The one chance I got to enter a code, I tried 'smartpost'

I still think smartpost would have made more sense



quality posts: 0 Private Messages greensnake

I can hardly believe I got it. What a way to end an already great day, thanks woot!


quality posts: 0 Private Messages Coolmatt49

FINALLY!!! After all these times losing out on the Bustin' out chainsaws, I finally got one!! Who would have thought it would have been on April Fools Day?!

BTW, the coupon code was "a secret!" as per the description. This gave you a $999,995.00 discount lol.

I wonder if the other coupon codes produced their respective shipping costs...



quality posts: 2 Private Messages cannonball99

Got mine! Didn't think I got it 'cause it never gave me a confirmation screen and took me back to the main page. But got the confirmation e-mail and checked my account status and my precious Bowl of Chili is there! Thank you Woot Gods!


quality posts: 5 Private Messages LumpyOne

Rats. Missed it again. I have tried so many times and failed. I still love Woot, but I wish there was a way to get the Bag O guppy.


quality posts: 33 Private Messages gideonfrost

The first time I ever got through and then by the time I figured out the code sold out. Plus I just got Jalapeno juice in my eye...the woot gods hate me!

I love the jackass who posted the coupon code on the f1rst page. Fortunately, I already had mine by then, but still ... the fun is trying to guess it yourself.


I survived the moving lips / shirt.woot launch tee server crash of 2007.
Barrels of Crud: 9 / Monkeys: 20 / Monkey Shirts: 1 / Leakfrogs: 1 / Launch shirts: 1 / Woots: too many

Funny April fools joke. Always hoped to have the Woot CEO deliver my B. O. C. Now I get my wish. Best $1,000,000 I ever spent. L. O. L. !!


quality posts: 3 Private Messages elsnerma

Got in at 1:05 or so...and I figured it out without help...other than the blog, of course. I actually got hung up after pressing the last button, and was stuck there for nearly 10 minutes before getting booted back to the main screen. But luckily my e-mail on my phone alerted me, a mere 2 minutes into said 10 minute wait, that my order had gone through! And the order under "My Account" confirms it!

Woot! 2 in a row, only 5 days apart! Must be a record ;-)

I'm not sure if I'm allowed to say this but the coupon code for normal shipping is SHNAIL, minus the H.

By my count you've said it 3 times so far and we're only on page 2.

I'm in! w00t!

Thank you for your purchase.

Your order number xxxxxxxx for 1 Random guppy has been received by Woot on 4/1/2009 and your credit card has been charged $8.00.

badges go here. When I am motivated enough to go find them.


quality posts: 5 Private Messages VeloSteve

Hmm. It's April Fools. Do I believe the "Sold Out" message or stay up all night refreshing the page?

Tough decision. Maybe I'll sleep on it.

Well I managed to get my box of chorizo. This is my second but this one is better because I earned it by figuring out the code!
