questionswhy does my boc order keep getting denied?

Same here; no idea why. Slow servers, maybe.

Also, I don't think I've ever seen a BOC take so long to sell out.

Because this is really the first time they're splitting it up like this, Woot is facing many unforeseen problems.

vote-for3vote-against

I tried no coupon, coupon, cc, PayPal and multiple browsers. Frustration level growing.

@okham: Same!

Glad to know its not just me. I guess I'll just keep trying. Either it'll sell out, or work eventually.

Mine goes all the way through to the end and says "Order Status: Your order is processing..."

I even opened a new tab and tried again and it continues to stop on that same screen. I got all excited and ran a lap around the house... at first... but now I feel like I should run that lap again in reverse.

Seems like whatever they did in the maintenance made for more reliable front end (eg getting to the final big golden button) but it hasn't helped the back end one bit. So now you get to actually laod it enough to try to get the order in, only for it to get denied as some of the servers are still choking.

My order was submitted 1-2 seconds after it went live (i was f5ing like a mad man) and I still got denied. I have nailed BoCs before and this was the fastest I ever went through the ordering process. I am a bit confused how I didn't get one.

@thedogma: mine has been sitting on that page since I first ordered 10 minutes ago... ?

vote-for4vote-against

@capguncowboy: that's where mine keeps getting denied.

@lordebon: Yep. I get to the button, pay, get to the "Your order is processing. Should be just a bit now..." page. It's gone to denial in as little as 30 seconds and taken as long as a few minutes.

EDIT: I've had one processing for a while now. Still hasn't denied. Or gone through either, but if it goes th...and denied as I was typing this. Blast.

vote-for3vote-against

mywoot.net still shows 40% availability, and woot.com hasn't shown any change either. Houston, we have a problem.

@magic cave: Like others have said, it must be a server issue. Some problem in actually processing/ accepting the orders maybe?

@thunderthighs, is this your department?

vote-for3vote-against

Easy to tell there's a major problem: the "when posted" comment on my last post says "in a few seconds from now."

vote-for3vote-against

@magic cave: that's pretty common for woot. I've posted a thread, and after I post, it says it was posted "two minutes from now"

That's almost definitely traffic related, but I dont know if it has to do with this issue

I was just goofing off, when I first saw it, and was amazed to see my order go through. Since I don't ordinarily try for them (I'm clear; it's a bag of crap, and I already have enough crap, thanks), I was annoyed with myself for doing it. Well, until I went back to check my account. Even though the initial order said it went through, I can see now that it didn't.

The forums are filled with sad little comments. It's not just us, it's everyone.

Personally, I'm trying to decide about the Malbec that's over on Wine dot Woot.

@shrdlu: Go for it! Assuming you can actually get it, of course.

vote-for3vote-against

BOC just sold out according to mywoot.net.

Fingers crossed my last attempt worked. Good luck to everyone else who was trying and had the same issue

vote-for3vote-against

Well that was annoying. I tried and tried and got denied every time. Boo.

@shrdlu: Drinking sounds good. Coffee just ain't cutting it.

vote-for3vote-against

Oo my final one went to "reserved a product status."

Fingers crossed!

EDIT: And it went through (and I even got a $5 coupon on it). Whee :D

vote-for3vote-against

I must have seen the order denied page at least 2 dozen times. WTF?

vote-for3vote-against

Seriously weird! Heartrate monitor sold out, BOC showed back up, I hit the buy-one button, and BOC sold out. Must be trying to reset things.

@mrsbeny: It's okay. Apparently I cannot either. The Wine dot woot site has been "processing" my order for about five minutes. I really wanted it, too. The ratings for this Malbec are absolutely stellar. Sigh.

vote-for3vote-against

@shrdlu: Sadly I cannot buy from wine dot woot. Which in the long run is probably a good thing.

vote-for4vote-against

Interesting. Evidently my order made it through in spite of all the error pages as I just got an email order confirmation. Yay!

vote-for2vote-against

Interesting. I wonder if the comments will right themselves, in the way those made last night did.

At least I got the Malbec, and it was a close, close call, too. There were only 35 of the 3 bottle sets; glad I hit the big yellow button right away. Hey, for me, this is as good (or better) than getting a BoC. I got three, and I'm happy. :-D

Sorry guys, don't know what happened. I'm just now starting work. Woke up about 2.5 hrs ago and went to dinner with son.

From your description, it sounds like it was sold out but didn't show that on the main page.

Order denied would be because it was sold out, wrong credit card info (security number, zip code, etc), or perhaps you already bought one.

Keep in mind with 300 at a shot, they're going to sell out in mere seconds and that spike in traffic will cause problems with the servers.

Best thing to do is check My Account to see if the order went through.

@thunderthighs: I'm about to disappear for a bit, but I'll raise a glass in your honor tonight. No worries. I just got a Malbec that looks to be outstanding, and there's still hope for a nice Merlot to show up. I love Wine dot Woot, I really do.

@thunderthighs: Welcome back to the madhouse. :)

@shrdlu: Good for you! As for me, Hunger Games tonight. Against my wishes, sister's dragging me by my toes. Have a glass for me!

vote-for1vote-against

Same problems here. Attached to woot all day, no BOC, and no love from friends when I woot. They just don't get it.

@shrdlu: "Personally, I'm trying to decide about the Malbec that's over on Wine dot Woot."

Did you go for it? I considered it and decided not, then changed my mind when it was too late. If you went for it I'd like to know what you think.

Edit: I see you got it.

@baqui63: I'll report back with a review once it arrives. I love the darker reds, and a good Malbec is very worthy. This seemed to fit that bill. I'm so glad I didn't really hesitate, since it turned out there were only 35 woot's worth.

Off to slumberland for me. It's been a long, long day.
