Question: Who's paying this much for such nice luggage? Have you seen how luggage is handled these days? Don't get me wrong, I love nice, luxurious luggage as well, but the luggage I currently own got scuffed up, mistreated, and broke within the first 2 or 3 trips. Very disappointing. I'm positive a warranty won't cover the rough handling of luggage handlers. Does Woot! have a link to the warranty terms? I couldn't find a 1-year warranty policy on their website.
In the end, thrift shops are your best bet.
