Sad part is, I really do want a leak frog... I have trouble with my sump pump, and its pooped out on me a few times, and I don't know until I set foot downstairs and the carpet is wet. LeakFrogs are hard to find!!

Your post is not a problem.
There is always one or two who complain about everything.
He probably would have done the same thing.

I couldn't get through and missed, but got in on the last one. I think it is fun just to see what others got in their bocrap


There are actually way more than one or two that complain. But what I was doing wasn't actually complaining as much as just expressing my thoughts on the matter. I didn't email Woot demanding to receive the Bandolier of Carrots or anything of the sort. I contacted them about the problem and they said it was a server error and there was nothing that could be done. Case closed, I thanked them and went on! I actually had alot of fun trying to order also, and have had fun looking at everyone's treasure. After about a year and a half of being a Woot member I actually made it to the order screen on the Bandolier of Carrots for the first time and that was cool. I have ordered several other Woots in the last few weeks. I am not mad at Woot or even really complaining just upset. He changed his mind and Woot fixed his order, they messed up and denied mine. My problem, my bad luck. Nothing at all against him. I will shut up and wait for the next one, sorry, his post just took me by surprise!! Please don't be offended no offense was meant!

In case woot doesn't get more leak frogs in to sell you can try this website. http://focuscamera.com/prods/964601965.asp Of course Woot is cheaper so you might want to hold off and wait.

I waited patiently hoping to get a chance at the LeakFrogs but they didn't have any this Woot-Off

Serves me right for not getting them the previous Woot-Off.

OK a few then.

Here is the story.

There are over 400,000 woot members.
Bandolier of Carrots are limited to 4500 craps so basically only 1500 members can get through to score their Bandolier of Carrots.

That leaves a lot of non-winning peeps some of which will gripe about something,
others will comment on their lack of Bandolier of Carrots and that is fine too.

Woot count = 70+

I'm soooooo happy. Waited to let the wife open the box (she was excited as I was!) It's the
SW Bell box --- samsonite bag, USB thumb drive locks, Nuon controller and -- TADA -- WD
hard drive. The outer anti-static bag says 40GB WD400, but others mentioned they received the WD2500, so I checked...

250GB BAY-BEE! Can't wait to find out if it works. Does anyone know if there is any kind of a warranty on it?

Good WOOT to you! -Gary

Did anyone else get the Virgin Cordless Phone? I ask because I let it charge for hours and it won't seem to work. The battery got nice and warm though so I took it out before it melted the phone.

I am thinking of getting a new battery and trying again, but if other people have gotten the phone and never got it working I don't want to bother.

Well, my Bandolier of Carrots arrived in Michigan Wednesday 10/25.
Did get a nice cardio workout when I saw 2 tracking
numbers - thought I was getting something really
special - NOT!

The box pretty much lived up to its name, to wit:

Green cotton bandana - crap
2 thumbdrive locks - double crap
iPod case w/removable belt clip - OK but I have no iPod
Samsonite photo video carry-all - this is actually quite
nice but I have no video gear to put in it. It would
probably make a nice backpack for a 5-year-old but
I don’t have one of those either.

It was great fun as usual, although my girlfriend just
looks at me and shakes her head.

I received the same box as you and same contents. When my husband came home he asked the same question ... warranty with it?. That was last night I am still laughing at him.. Hope that answers the question.. sorry not on a Blinged-Out Cabbage

I got one in a previous Woot Off and gave it to my parents because I just have a cell phone. They are using it and have not had any problems with it to my knowledge. No dried blood on it though...

Holy Frak! Mine looked pretty sealed and new, everything was in its little bag with twisty ties. Looked new, not refrubished or returned.

I would ask Woot what their policy was on selling hazardous biological waste and if they understood US postal regulations about shipping hazardous biological waste.

My bosses wife just called the office to tell him that his worker Terry is online with woot and not working. Guess I should think next time about using my real name. Silly me. Uh, yeah Shelly, I am working and wooting too. I am able to do two things at once woot and work. By the way your husband is able to do two things at once too answer the phone and fill in your own blank.

OK, mine came, I suppose I should let y'all know what it was.


2 of the thumb drive locks (duh)
1 video camera bag (duh)
50 blank CD-Rs (off-brand)
1 toy knife with a collapsing blade

Both the knife and the USB locks make for good practical jokes.

Sure, it's crap, but thats what I paid for. I should just be glad that I got any crap at all.

My favorite had to be my first crap. One of the items was a power cord for an electric dryer. (You know, with the funny looking plug cuz it's 240V)

Unbeknownst to woot, my cat had eaten through my dryer's power cord and I was going to go buy one. I guess I should ask for a refund since it wasn't "useless" crap.


RIP Toni the cat

Sadly, my vey first Binder Of Cabriolets, seems to have been lost by Fedex.
From the tracking record, it came within 20 miles of my house, then veered away and ended up in Ohio. From there, it vanished into the mists of time.

Didn't mean to embarass Shelly by the fill in the blank comment. Just annoy her a little for her tattling. For the record we have a great man for a boss (family man) most of us have worked for him for over 20 years. We very rarely have people call out sick or miss a day due to the relaxed atmosphere here at work. Yes we all work hard but are allowed to surf the web when not busy even do our xmas shopping online. We could fill in the blank a hundred ways with all he does while he is on the phone. Most are innocent some are not (he, he) but he is still a great guy. Hope he gets to sleep upstairs tonight. Boy I never realized how many people we know that woot. They are all calling the office about the comments above. Looks like we all woot at work. Oh, and yes, I am still employed with Shellys husband. Woot Whooo!!!!

In Pa, sorry no openings.We just hired two newbies recently that we are still training (to woot of course). As long as the work gets done by the end of the day he is cool with us. He is a smart enough boss to realize a happy employee is a productive employee.

First of all, let me be very clear on one point: FEDEX SUCKS!

I live barely 30 miles from the Woot Warehouse... should have received my package 3 days ago. Aparently, FedEx thinks McKinney, TX is out in California somewhere. They misrouted my package out there and now say they will only put it on a truck back to here, so 6 more days to wait!

If anyone is interested in following along: http://tinyurl.com/y44vpv

While I can't speak for the company as a whole, the FedEx employees I spoke with today must think customer satisfaction is some kind of joke.



OK... at this point I'm going to have to eat a bit of crow...

After speaking to the FedEX manager (named "Pat")... I mentioned it would be nice that since they misrouted my package to California on a very slow truck, it would be nice if they put an airbill label to send it back quickly... and you know what? THEY DID!! Arrive in Memphis last night, Dallas this morning and is on the truck for delivery to my house...

My apologies to all... FedEX made it right...
