TT, Should we expect another Bet on Cold before too long, if at all, today?

...Not that there hasn't been a plethora of good options, so far. :D

Curious if my husband's Blizzard of Crap was denied due to us living under the same roof or if was because his phone number was off by one digit.

I got one in February with my account so I am under the 31 day rule, no crap for me. If it is a household thing, he will stop trying but if not, he'd like to try again.

No, I'll do my sleuthing after all this is over.


WHY DID I GET...

DENIED: We ran out of Bet on Colds before we even took your money so we denied your order to end the process.

CANCELLED: We ran out of of Bet on Colds right further down the process and we had to cancel the order to reverse gears.

We use the same computer, so that could be it too...but this was the message:

Woot Order #59771762


Whoopsie daisy, your Woot order was denied


Oh no! Woot order #59771762 was denied!

Dearest customer, we're sorry, but something has happened and your order was denied. We recommend that you try placing the same order again. If it still doesn’t work, please go through the below checklist of common problems:
Was the credit card number entered correctly, without any transposed digits?
Did you enter the correct expiration date? Was it expired?
Does the billing address and phone number match the one for your credit card?
Was the card recently reissued with a different number and/or expiration date?
If that list doesn't help, you may want to contact your bank directly in case there's something weird on their end.

In the meantime, you may see a pending authorization on your payment method. Don't worry, it will be automatically removed by your bank in the next few business days.

Sorry for the trouble, we still love you so.

Yeah that happened to my wife after she signed up awhile back and used my laptop since it is lightening fast. I told her to stay off my porn machine and use her own adult entertainment device. Since then I have wooted from work so we are on a different IP, still no Bet on Cold. We will keep trying for more disappointment.

I am ok with it and understand there are rules, I certainly don't want to appear greedy. Just want to know the reason and we can work around it. We got so disappointed with the first load, and being suckers for punishment and all. Lol

As I understand it the IP address doesn't have anything to do with it. TT will cancel suspected dupes if the names on the credit cards match, though. If your order was denied it was probably because the crap sold out while the order was processing.

Just curious if there's a hint of one more Bo'C still, of if I can let the poor Momma go to bed. She's tired.

She's been periodically checking, but missed every Bag thus far. I blame her not getting the whole Bag thing--no, I blame her not getting the whole internet thing. Although she does check bridge scores every day for the studio. And she reads Joe Posnanzki's blog. And she googled nearby churches to see if anyone's having a Tennebrae service on Friday. When you consider how computer-resisitent she is, that's really getting a lot of internet for her.

Seriously, TT, if you don't want a reveal-all, can you just PM me, please? Mum's willing to stay up, but I'm about at the point I'm willing to lie and tell her that's it no more and let her go to bed. While it's fun helping her Snag a Bag, it's not worth her losing sleep.

Let's just say you picked the wrong time to post since one just sold out. I hope you were able to snag it.

Even though I can't get it since I got one in February, I still tried for fun. Naturally I was able to get to checkout simply because the system found it fun to mess with me.

Meanwhile, I personally don't mind the 31 day policy, but it sets up a whole division with who can get it.

Based on the offering in January, people who got it Dec 25th were ineligible until February.

Those people then were ineligible to get it today (if they got one in February).
___
At the same time, people who got one in the January Woot-Off were eligible in February, and thus ineligible today (if they got one in February).

People who missed it in February were eligible today, and they are eligible next month.

Of course, these calculations are based on 31 days between Woot-Offs, with the obvious exception of February.

Nope, I posted and then clicked and ran upstairs. And poor Mums did try. Sat in the VoP (which took explaining, and I think she still doesn't get what that is) and it sold out (which took more explaining--"I clicked buy it like you said. Why didn't I get it?").

I told her to go on to bed. It really isn't worth her losing sleep.

I might keep watch and run upstairs if one more happens to show. Like I posted before, she's 90, you never know if she's asleep or awake and watching her tv.

I won't look for possible duplicates until morning. That's a system denial which means that we ran out of Bet on Colds before we completed your order.


Edit: It can also be a problem with your payment source so CS is correct as well.

Maybe its just me, but it seems easier to get Bet on Colds lately. Got the one around 4pm yesterday. Got three in October / November time-frame last year.

I don't know why I click anymore ... at least half the stuff goes to Goodwill. The pedicure device ended up in a White Elephant gift at Christmas, as did some other items (Woot Shirts, plastic drink ware).

I was watching the Woot Off for some particular items on my shopping list, but couldn't help clicking when the Crap came up.

Looking forward to the wife's sigh and eye roll when it arrives!

All the cool people already got theirs in February and were ineligible for this one. This woot-off was like the losers bracket for Bet on Colds. Congrats for being among the winners of the losers. ;)

Ordered my first Bet on Cold with this one! Been failing ever since not getting a "Random Crap" back in 2005 (not very good at this).

I'm prepping my ultimate disappointment by actually expecting to be delighted and amazed.

The last time people said that, I reduced the number of Bet on Colds I'm selling.

And if you don't like them, why are you buying them? There are many others that would gladly buy the one you pass up.

It seems that your expectations are too high for the crap.
