So by some dumb luck, i was able to beat the odds again, and place an order on this months bag of crap. I know of at least 5 people at work who also attempted to buy the bag with no luck. I’m not sure what i am doing right, but i am not going to complain. I expect this one to come in about 3-4 weeks. So i should get it mid November. Lets hope for a big screen TV! that would be awesome.
For those of you who dont follow the site, they have one deal per day. It is usually refurbished, sometimes new and the products vary greatly. Every few months they have what they call a Woot off, where they have items back to back until they sell out. This is where it really gets interesting, and sometimes you have to fight people for the products, because they sell out so fast. It is really ingenious if you ask me.
Every woot off, there is one coveted item, that everyone wants to get. And as ive found is near impossible to actually purchase, as the servers crash almost the instant it goes live on the site. The product is simply described as a “bag of crap.” If you go to the woot.com website and look at their previous woots for the Bag of crap, and you will see the people who manage to buy one get some interesting stuff. All the bags of crap now come with 3 craps(or items, ) in the past you had the option to buy up to 3 but now it just comes with 3, for 3$ and 5$ shipping(actually every item woot sells has 5$ shipping from a leakfrog, to a queensized bed, or tv.) It seams like the majority get some piddly items, like a bag(the bag in “bag of crap”), set of ipod headphones, some stickers, speakers, whatever they seam to have available. Usually worth the 3$ investment, but there’s always a handful of people who get some cool extras thrown in there. Then… there is the letter. It appears that an unknown amount of users get a letter in their shipment of crap. The letter usually reads something like “we apologize, but your third item would not fit in your box, and will be shipped separately.” The interesting part, is this “3rd item” will arrive on a Pallet!! One guy got a pallet of car wax, another guy got a pallet that had a plethora of stuff including 40 badminton rackets, and 20 golf clubs. Some people even get tv’s, the list goes on and on.
Which brings me to the point of this Post. The last woot off (9/22/10), I somehow managed to actually order a bag of crap.
I waited almost a month to get my Bag of Crap. The suspense and excitement i felt waiting for this box to arrive was very reminiscent of Christmas, when i was a child. I could not wait till it came. What could be in that box?
