I wonder if mine will include the electric razor or cord that goes with the smelly storage/cleaning contraption for a Remington shaver I received in my last one. I actually have facial hair to regularly shave now...

It has even retained its funky stench after like 2 years of proud display on my shelf.

It looks like we have pushed through the complainers so I'm ready to follow this thread. Bunnies Ogling Carrots #4 and the 2nd in a row.

You got me wondering just how much I've actually spent at Woot, so I spent way too much time on an Excel spreadsheet and realized I've spent $5,056.90 on 214 purchases of which $435 is shipping, 247.37 in tax (WA), and -$245 on coupons (about half were TAXSUCKS). $1,704.66 was spent in Shirt.Woot alone.

Some items I bought serveral years ago are still in use, some have just recently found a use and a couple haven't been used once. Overall I think it was the best $5000 I've spent.

Just popping in to say how excited I am that I actually scored my first one (final offering) this time! I loved that they were broken up into multiple offerings, I had a job interview that morning and was out and about all day... I was so sure that I was going to be out of luck... Thanks Woot Staff! I've been smiling for three days and am TOTALLY excited, whatever the outcome!

sorry for the foal question, but, is it possible to order more than one Bunnies Ogling Carrots ? in the frenzy of trying to get one, i tried multiple transactions. then i found some clips online of people with more than one from the same day. here's what my account says:

You want 1

Barrel of Crops
You ordered 3 Random Crap.
which each cost $3.00
for a subtotal of $3.00
plus shipping + $5.00
for a total of $8.00

FYI - It was only one Bunnies Ogling Carrots per user ID. If you see people with multiply listings it could be because there were multiply user ID's.

You see, Woot! is extremely smart and will only let you register one account to one credit card number and one e-mail. So, you could technically have multiple craps in one day if you have multiply e-mails and credit cards and are a total Bunnies Ogling Carrots stalker!

It might be possible for the craps to begin shipping as early as today. The last 3 day woot-off saw them sold on Jan 19th (Thursday) and start shipping on the 24th (Tuesday). With their being a day in between on this round with no wootoff, it could possible push up the shipping by a day.

Yes, very much looking forward to the assembly of the crops. The yield, hopefully, will be more plentiful than the last crop. It appears that with some extra love, care, water, fertilizer, extra caffeine for the server developers tweaking [servers] during the Wootoff, that things will be more bountiful. Like Mother Nature, hoping that the Woot Gods will smile upon us once again after the drought during the previous Wootoff and the rains of goodness will follow for those of us who are hungry, but not too hungry, because I don't want to be thrown into an arena with another Wooter in a battle to the end broadcasted live on hunger.woot

I am very excited for my first barrel of crops. The suspense is killing me! I had no idea about the elusive letters and when I found out about them that made the excitement even greater (even though i know the chances of getting one are very rare). I don't even know if it would be a good thing if I got one.. since I am currently in college living in the dorms. Can you imagine receiving a giant package of crap? Inconceivable.

I'm a little conflicted. Part of me wants to stay away from this thread until I get the crap. But, studies show that people tend to enjoy things more if they know what's coming. If you know a good or bad ending is in store, you can prepare yourself for it.

However, I lack patience, so keeping myself away would be quite a struggle.

Normally compliments of LEM- but I know a lot of the extraordinary amount of new ones commenting about their first box. See below.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=--=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=


FedEx SmartPost primer for newcomers, and a reminder for the rest of Wooters (v. 1.6)

1. Before the tracking information shows up: Sometimes Woot is not e-mailing the tracking numbers until a few days after the packages are shipped. You can try and get the number by reference, by going to [link]https://www.fedex.com/AltRefTracking?cntry_code=us[/link] and entering these three things: Your Woot order number goes to reference numbers box, select United States in destination country drop down, and Your Zip Code in a respective box. It's important to get all three pieces. Keep refreshing it, and if you're lucky, the tracking number will pop-up before the official e-mail comes. It doesn't ALWAYS work, but there's a good chance. Note, that if you've made multiple orders from Woot, you can enter several order numbers into the reference box, one per line.

1.1 A small tracking by reference tip: At first when you enter the tracking information your tracking page will be loaded by POST request. That means all data you entered is sent to server through internal fields. Each time you refresh you'd have to agree to repeat the POST operation, and you can't bookmark or transfer the link to another computer/smartphone/etc. However - if you press a purple RESUBMIT button below your results, it will change the request to GET, so that all information you entered will show up in a URL and you can now F5 it as many times as you want without further steps, make bookmarks or e-mail the link to self (or others).

1.2 If your weight shows as 1lb, it is most likely a placeholder, which will be replaced by more accurate weight once the package actually starts moving (or reaches a sorting station - see below). The dimensions will probably show as NA/NA/NA on those placeholder packages. Some people have reported packages showing as 1lb all the way until delivery, but turned out to be anything but, though there's always a slight chance that your package actually is a 1 pounder. So you never know.

1.3 To make it even more frustrating - the actual fact that you can track by reference, but if it shows as a 1lb with status Shipment information sent to FedEx does not yet mean the package actually shipped or even exists. All it means - a label which will eventually be attached to your package has been printed. It may be a few days before your beloved box will actually hit the road. Patience is the key here!

1.4 So how do we know for sure that BоC's are out? Keep looking through this thread, and you may spot a post by a Woot staff member (identified as such by a small icon next to their name), stating that all packages are shipped. Sometimes it will take FedEx a while before they show up or update, but once it's said here on the forum, you can be sure that they are out! Also keep an eye open for other staff members posts announcing possible shipping delays or otherwise!

1.5 Some wooters report being able to track, but not me! Am I screwed? No, you are not. The tracking numbers don't get into the system all at once. The track by reference starts working when FedEx receives your package info from Woot. They send them in batches, and if someone has a reference hit, does not mean everyone gets it at the same time. Sometimes it's days between batches are sent, and sometimes electronic info on some or all packages is not sent at all, which means not trackable by reference until it arrives (even if trackable by actual tracking number received from Woot). The actual tracking information (if you have tracking e-mail sent to you or it shows up on your order page) gets updated as the package is actually scanned at FedEx location. Provided that Woot ships them by truckload, it may not be instant at all, nor they will appear all at once. Sometimes it's not 'til the next day when you see it live, even if there are others that got scanned early in the game. Remember, if a staff member said that all packages are out - they are. It may take some time for them to go live, a day or two between first reported trackable package until the last one shows up in a system is not unusual...

2. To get the dimensions you need to create My FedEx account (no charge, and you don't have to give them cc number if you don't want to): [link]http://my.fedex.com/[/link] and make sure to switch to new or advanced version. Enter your tracking number, and the dimensions will pop...

2.1 Another way to get dimensions: If you have problems with My FedEx site, or just to make things easier - you can also download a very convenient FedEx Desktop application. It uses the same log-in credentials as your My FedEx account (you'd still need to have one), and tracks the same packages right from your desktop, without the browser.

3. Don't get too excited. For the first few days most people will probably have some sort of cubed dimensions. This is because in the beginning the dimensions are not real. They are guesstimated by FedEx based on weight (which may or may not be accurate). Here's the famous formula for you to check:

SIDE = ( 330 * WEIGHT ) ^ (1/3)
(side in inches, weight in lbs)

If it matches your dimensions to a few tenths of an inch - you know they are not real. That's for smaller packages. Those over 15lbs would always have the "dimensions" of a 15lbs package (or was it 16)... Again not real...

4. Once your package passed a sorting station - the updated weight and real dimensions may show up. Usually that's the first or second stop it makes after Dallas. In my case (North-East) in either Martinsburg, WV or at Kansas City, KS (I am yet to understand the logic SmartPost uses in sending the packages one route or the other), for many others it's New Berlin, WI or another major SmartPost hub. In some cases actual weighting/measuring may not take place even at the SECOND hub... or ever...

5. USPS Handoff: Once the package is reported to have passed a city near you - start tracking it on [link]http://www.usps.com/[/link], because that's who's delivering it to your door, and once the package is handed over by FedEx, they will have more up to date information. Do make sure that you track by actual tracking number (it will show up if you got a hit with reference tracking), because USPS does not track by reference. A thing to note - when handed over to USPS, FedEx always says a standard "allow 2-3 for business days for delivery". This is a standard message, and if your USPS facility is efficient enough, you may get it delivered as soon as the day of handoff (if it happened early enough).

5.1. USPS is not delivering for a few days after supposed handoff. Compliments go to the budget cuts and staff shortage at your local post office, as per a post by snaped, who claims to know the situation first hand: the pallets of SmartPost packages are handled at the lowest priority, after all other mail has been processed. So if your post office is a bit short on staff or overwhelmed with other mail it may well sit unsorted for a few days, after which their status is raised to priority and they finally get sorted and delivered.

Dear Woot staff,

I'd like to thank you for this timely woot-off and Bunnies Ogling Carrots

Our family has had a string of bad luck lately with the unexpected deaths of a friend and an extended family member so the anticipation of what will come in our Bunnies Ogling Carrots will be a much needed distraction. My four year old seems to think it will be something related to a princess and the two year old thinks it's a motor vehicle of some sort. Regardless, they're waiting by the door everyday looking for "the truck!" We've won Bunnies Ogling Carrots before but this one couldn't have been more timely.

Thanks again,
Moe

I know, right. Well, what happened is that I ended up getting a great deal on an Epson all-in-one scanner, which now does almost everything I needed at the time. I have scanned in what has now been shredded into 10 trash bags full of data of old financial papers. Now, I have a couple of folders of receipts of smaller size for things that have warranties/proof for insurance -- and will probably fire up Neat Receipts for that.

Sorry to hear about your troubles. Hope that your Barrel of Crops is plentiful for your little princess and your future racecar driver.

Indeed. I went as far back as October 11 to read the Bunnies Ogling Carrots posts (like 20 pages each! I could probably power a small computer with all the scrolling I did on my mouse). Hopefully they'll carry out the tradition on taking a big crap (metaphorically) on someone.

If not, eh.. what did I have to lose? Haha. I'm starting to go on this site more than Facebook or the thedailywhat.

Also, I might look a little obsessed but am I the only one counting the days already and estimating what day my package will ship?

1. Usually when someone would receive a letter, it would be an apology letter saying that they could not fit everything in the box, so expect a separate shipment. The shipment could be good or it could be bad. For example one shipment included a copius amount of Foot Flush's, another almost a ton of car wax, or if you're lucky enough a random assorted pallet of good stuff like tvs.

2. Woot forum has a filter on it that replaces certain letter combinations with other letter combinations. This is why some people don't bother calling it (thou which can not be said) what it is, but using some affectionate name that it would get filtered and possibly replaced with anyways.

Since everyone is taking a walk down memory lane I've decided to jump in. Although I had been following Woot for a while, my first Woot purchase was the "Sling Media SlingBox Classic" on 4/28/07. I'm proud to say that I'm still using today! (can't say that for most of the other stuff.) Not quite my 5th anniversary yet but very close.

I think I've counted 81 unique purchases among the different sites although the number of actual items is of course higher. I don't want to know the total dollar amount either, I think the wifey would kill me if I figure it out.

Next I'd like to try to figure out how to track the number of people I've brought to the Woot site to try to buy a Barrel of Crops. In retrospect it was great for Woot but bad the rest of us trying to by a sack as the number of eyeballs continues to grow!

Gotta say I love this place though!
