Yep, right there with ya. Not that I expected to score, anyway, but it was worth a shot.

I GOT A FRICKING LETTER (November, 2017).

Welp, that went exactly as expected.

Waiting room despite immediately hitting the link as soon as it changed.

My guess is that many people had the product page from the event tile before Woot switched it out for a link to the blog post. That goes live before the tile link switches, giving those people a heads up. I'm mad because I forgot to save it before they changed it hahaha.

I know I'm not gonna get one, but I'm still sitting in the "vestibule of patience" so that's proof there was a chance.

I got a pair!!! (Or so I think) I was just rapidly refreshing until the “I want one” button came up. I was in the vestibule for a minute, and my phone buzzed with an order confirmation from Woot. Thanks Woot!

Don't use your Amazon Login/Payments. Yeah, you'll have to eat the $5 shipping, but checkout is tons faster.

First time round I got in the Vestibule of Patience.

Second time I got all the way through the order process, but when it asked me to confirm my payment methods all were sold out -_-

But that's the only way I can login. I haven't known my Woot password for years, and I can't reset it.

Woot quite simply doesn't have the capacity to pull off "fun" things like this. Never got anything beyond the front page - not the vestibule, not sold out, just continually refreshing to the page that tells me this event is coming up (except, of course, for the five minutes of error pages - even for this forum). JFC, I know businesses don't give a sh!t about their customers, but why do they continue to pretend that they do?

Wow, first sucker too! Is your bot the same one that made the google phone calls?

I know I should close my vestibule of patience tab from the $1 sale but morbid curiosity as to how long it will do that before finally showing the sold out page is winning out. Sorry, wajeremy.

so, what's the world record for the vestibule of patience. If I remain for hours, would I be awarded the master of the vestibule of patience award? Is there a badge for that??? :D

I got a cancellation order on the first round, crazy it showed my order processed at exactly 2:00:06 so that went extremely quick. But managed to snag a set on the second go around! Don't know why I went for it other than the challenge, they will end up where all mine always end up, scratched and lost under the seat in my car!

That was a complete and utter waist. Furthermore, your instructions "sucked". I read the blog post page around 1 PM CST today.
You said, "1. Go to this page. (Deal will appear "Sold Out" until #2 below)." and that lead here: https://sport.woot.com/plus/wtf-pricing-rayban-chromance
Which didn't say "Sold Out" but clicking on the item there lead back to the blog post. So I stayed on that list page and when 3:00 rolled around reloading that page did absolutely nothing, of course. When I tried clicking the item again, now it said "Sold Out" but not because it hadn't started yet.
So next time, make your instructions better.

Unless they change it in the next minute, at the end of the url for the product page, change the numbe following 'sunglasses' to the following number.
