Okay all you rich bitch American Express cardholders, you don't have to worry about leaving home without it because you can stay seated, participating in the wealthy man's Woot-off where dream products are suddenly unleashed at crazy low prices. You have to have an American Express Card and it's a bit like those "first person to call" radio contests, but some of the prizes include perks that can't be bought anywhere.
For example, today at noon Eastern, if you click fast enough, with a lot of luck you'll get a 65-inch Sharp Aquos 1080p LCD for $3,000 that usually retails for $15K. That includes two round-trip tickets to New York City and three hotel nights, along with a visit to the set of the NBC series 30 Rock. The trick is, there's only one of these available, and it's more like winning a prize than buying something. There's a lot more on the way today, too. Check out some of the products offered:
