Texas residents are burdened with paying sales taxes on purchases from Woot! by our horrendous, monstrous state government. To help offset this onerous burden, we were allowed to use a coupon on purchases over $40. This wonderful, extremely praiseworthy coupon code was "taxsucks". Woe unto us, this coupon seems to have been overlooked in Woot! 2.0. I am sure that this was a a mere oversight and not a slight to us loyal Texas Woot!ers, and I was wondering when this mere slip of attention would be rectified?
Thanks, Stimpy

I have seen several people ask this question. But so far, no answer from Woot! Thanks for posting a thread about it, it probably just got lost in the shuffle. Smile

He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion. - Unknown

The TAXSUCKS code still exists. If you meet the requirements, put in TAXSUCKS (all caps for now, though we're fixing that soon) and it gives you $5 off your order.

The requirements:
a) You have to have Texas as your shipping address
b) Your order has to be over $40. As in, at least $40.01 (including shipping).

Sorry, we can't give refunds on any prior orders that didn't get the discount, but you're welcome to use it on any future purchases.

I apologize for invading your forum up front, but feel this is worth while and will only take 15 seconds away from a chat.

Not asking for money, just one pair (or as many as you can find laying around Cool ) to help people that cannot afford to see.

Missouri ones are burdened now too. The last time I tried, the code seemed like it would work because it alerted me that my total purchase price was below the minimum to use the code.

i'm trying to use the coupon in a purchase this morning (11AM CST, 2/1/13), and it says the coupon code "didn't work".

is it broken? or is it (please don't break my heart) gone forever?

Add me to the list. I certainly hope that woot!/amazon isn't abandoning us taxpayers! I've already curtailed my amazon shopping since they kowtowed to the goobermints of Texas and started taxing everything sold directly from amazon. I hope I don't have to put the brakes on woot!ing too.

I see that this has broken before, and trust that woot! will solve the problem swiftly, and give us back our token lagniappe to keep the ol' woot!ers happy as pigs....

Please do not increment my Quality Posts count. 69 is a good place to be. ;-)

it almost seems that since they moved to the $5 all you can ship till midnight central time, they decided to move away from the taxsucks coupon.
