If you get to #1 and someone posts a copy then yes.  If someone tries to post a book directly to you and you aren't #1 then no.

What Mary said.  If you don't have a credit to cover it, though, it won't be offered to you.

Just remember, if the books are on auto request, it's not really going to be "offered" to you with the normal 48 hour response time...it will be offered and auto-accepted within an hour, so make sure those books set to auto-request are ones you really want to spend a credit on now, as you may not have a chance to cancel or decline.

I have my whole wishlist set to autorequest and quite often will get up in the morning to find a couple of books have been posted, accepted and marked mailed before I even realize they've been ordered. (Which I love, because everything on my WL, I really want!)
