Also, there are many ways to circumvent the word filters, even for bags of crap.



I reserve the right to be irritated (wait till YOU learn All About Your Sacroiliac) but it's hard to top the lunchbag. I did get a used practical joke calculator that had a water squirter inside. ThunderThighs had to tell me what it was.

I scored me my 1st ever Bundles of Clones

wooters.us opens the buy page for you but you still need to be at your computer when it pops up, & even after getting to the large gold button it still fails most of the time.

First you get your Basket Of Carnations, then you dig down, down, down to the bottom of the box, and you see a white envelope with 'The Letter' written on it.

Welp changing the subject since I was lucky enough to get one from the first batch, I decided to compile my Woot! stats (slow day at work).

I have made the following:

48 Woot.com purchases( 11 Bags)
1 Home.woot purchase
6 Kids.woot purchases
11 Shirt.woot purchases (4 Randoms. I think I've only worn 2 of the 12 randoms I've received. Ouch!)
13 Sellout.woot purchases

Total Purchases: 79
Total Woot Wage: $3,328.72 excluding shipping
First Woot: Pinnacle HD Pro Stick (5/16/2008)
Latest Woot: Brick of Cryptonite (5/21/2012)

Worst Woot: Too many to count but here are a few I never use
- BBQ Grill Light
- Energizer Energi To Go iPod/Iphone Battery Charger (thanks Apple for changing your power pins making it worthless for anything north of 4th generation)
- Golf Scope Distance Finder
- DigiPro 8"x6" USB Graphics Tablet with Cordless Pen
- Cusinart Mix It In Soft Serve Ice Cream Maker
- Lumix Stereo Bluetooth Headset

- M-Audio Studiophile AV40
- Phillips 32" 720p LCD HDTV

Best Item in Random Basket: 77 piece flatware set
Worst Items in Random Basket: Everything else. No Seriously they were horribly awesome from a Dr. Laura Talking Doll to a Pico Projector cardboard foldout screen to a 3D 35 mm camera where you can't get the film processed any more.

Things that would please me in my baggie that I wont get
1. Panasonic Lumix point and shoot camera
2. 32" television or larger

So not only does this Zune Mikebbass sent me work but it has 1,342 songs on it. This Brick of Carbonite keeps getting better and better! Matter of fact, Im pretty certain this is false advertising cause I have yet to see any crap. Wait...maybe the latex balloon has a hole in it....

Nope tested and holds air just fine! That settles it, Im re-namming this a bag of awesome.

Worst I've seen so far was an air mattress with a hole and some non-functioning electronics.

And my last Brick of Carbonite, there was a ab-workout DVD left inside the DVD player. Lol.

    Well I got in on mine this morning, This will be my second Bundles of Clones - the last one I got was in 2008 and I still have my Roboraptor from it.

    I wasn't running any alert programs and was actually fast asleep late last night, My dog was going ape The Force barking at what I found out later was a 'possum outside.

    Well by that point I was up so I go hit refresh on Woot and there it was. I hit the button and figured it would be a no go, the bar was already at half.

    As it's loading I wonder - Do I have the right 3 digit code, I better check so I go running for my wallet and get back in time to put it in.

    Thanks Woot, I have tried quite a few times since my first one and I'm happy I have one coming no matter what it is.

    the next 500 should be the last batch. 3000 is the most they sell.

    It will also be my only chance to get one this woot-off now that I'm working again.

    bsmith1 wrote:It's pretty easy. Address doesn't matter. Just has to be a unique woot account and a unique payment method. So, really, the payment method is the only thing stopping people. If I were so inclined, I could easily create a woot account for each of the following.
    1 x PayPal Account
    1 x Bank Card
    3 x Credit Cards
    Then, I could buy the Bundles of Clones with one account and move on to the next. Splitting the Bundles of Clones sale up as they've done as made it easier for people to do this. Prior to now, the only easy way to do this was when it was on xmas or April 1st and they had some trick you had to figure out. That gave you time to switch accounts.
    Also, you can have a different browser open for each woot account. That way, you're already logged in in each account and you just need click buy on each browser.

    In fact, couldn't a person create unlimited PayPal accounts all tied to the same bank account? Then they could have unlimited woot accounts, right?



    You can't tie multiple Paypal accounts to the same bank account. However, you can add, like 7 email addresses, or something like that, to one Paypal account. So, really you could use the same Paypal account for multiple purchases, using the different email addresses. And, that's of course not accounting for how many debit or credit cards a person might have. If I were really so inclined, I believe I have 4 email addresses listed in my Paypal account, my debit card from my credit union, and my Paypal debit card. That's 6 potential orders right there, if I really felt like spending $48 on gambling for crap.

    It checks CC/Debit card numbers and Paypal accounts when you check out. So it doesn't matter how many woot accounts you have if you still only have 1 paypal account.

    I'v never tried, so I don't know. I just know I've gotten away with ordering "one per person" things on other sites, using the different email addresses listed in my Paypal account, since I can login with each one like it's a separate account.

    Is the topic of how many accounts someone might have really worth all the discussions? It's still hard as hell to get a Bundles of Clones , sure they are buckin the system to get more than one, but it doesn't change their chances of getting one. On top of that even if the system allows 90 accounts with 90 payment methods, but they all go to 1 address, I am pretty sure that address is certain to receive the smallest worst crap imaginable.

    On the topic of multiple craps... I hope woot doesn't base who gets what on if a single address gets multiple craps, or at least does it with some discretion.

    Over the last year or so I've got a few family members and roommates into woot and they now also check woot, especially for woot-offs and Bundles of Clones. It never was even a concern in my mind since whenever we've got multiple craps on the same day, it was obvious that we were individual people and didn't "cheat."

    But now with Bundles of Clones coming up multiple times during a woot-off its much easier and indeed 4 of us have got in on this current Bundles of Clones . Thats two people each at two different addresses. Would it be fair to punish us? We're all just as big of woot fans as most anyone else... it's just easier for us all to score our own Bundles of Clones now.

    I'm not sure where I planned to go with this. I just hope we don't get the same crap or punished some other way because that's not fun. Its not always black and white as far as who cheated and who didn't.

    I would imagine that an unusually high number of craps going to the same address (more than could be accounted for by spouses/teenagers with their own accounts) would trigger some sort of notification in Woot's computer system to at least garner closer scrutiny....and think it would be a hoot if they rec'd some actual (real) crap. If it wasn't illegal to send that through the mail, that is. But maybe they could get a used toothbrush, some paper clips, or a single shoe (with no mate), etc.

    May the Crap be with you all!!!

    Again, I could certainly be wrong, but I just don't think very many people would go to that much trouble to get multiple craps under several different accounts.

    I, for one, LOVE the new order of things brought about by Colonel Crap. <---blatant and shameless attempt at sucking up in the hopes of getting "the one"---or at least just a really good one.

    May the Crap be with you all!!!
