It's the 12 Bags of Crapmas! Every day, 12 days in a row, we'll have a new batch of Bags of Craps on Woot -- and some of those bags will contain especially crappy yuletide delights.

Subscribe to Woot's Youtube channel and never miss another one of these idiotic videos! We dare you!

That was a tricky one, but it finally paid off! Thanks for the fun this Christmas season, Woot! Can't wait to get my crap!

Curse you, case-sensitive URL with ambiguously cased letter!!!

The delay caused by your treachery has denied me a Battlestar of Contraceptives.

Ugh, of all the letters, of course it's "x". Quite possibly the most difficult possible letter to have upper or lower case distinguished given the font and brief period displayed without other characters to reference size. How annoying.

Edit: And of course I sat there thinking it was "c" being the upper case culprit for a few minutes, never even considered "x". Oh well I guess? Need a 13th day!

I saw where the URL was, but could not figure out the correct case. This is a load of crap! Next time use custom bit.ly URLs, and stick to upper case.

I was too late but would have missed it with the X anyway. No crap for my Xmas. I only got to the cart twice and then that second sign in got me. Does it do that if you sign in with Amazon. I used to be able to just check out as long as I was logged in. Now I have to log in again to buy something?

I was planning to get some crap all day long. I now hate the letter X. It has destroyed my life and spirit. Next time woot, I'll be ready.

Okay... How did the first Wooter get one @ 28.33 seconds, when the last digit didn't scroll across the screen until the 30 second mark? I'm not mad that I didn't get one (I'm lying here), but I am a bit perturbed (okay, I'm actually p$#@% the $%#@ off) about the timing.

Even assuming that they somehow miraculously managed to get the address in under 20 seconds, there's no way that they could have typed it in and gotten the pages to load in under 8.

I call BS.

Since everyone is accessing the sale all at once, it kinda makes the "First to Woot" report a little off.

Users also saw that previous Bags of Coal appeared early as well, but the sale doesn't actually go live until 12:00am CST

My gut feeling tells me that Day 12 will get the wicked awesome bags. The video trickeration makes me suspect this even more. Can't wait to see what everyone gets.

I've said it in a different thread, and I'll say it again... Brilliant video Woot! I think that one stayed live the longest of the lot!

The trick is to log in a minute before the video goes live. For your safety, Woot does not stay logged in for prolonged periods of time. (wouldn't do for others around your computer to be able to buy stuff on your account without your permission, would it now?)

It was 11:59 and my trigger finger was ready.
Refresh. Refresh. Refresh.
Keep your eyes on the screen, stay calm and steady.
"There it is!!" I squeaked and readily skipped to the end.
Wait what? I missed it!?!
Hurry! Scan! Scroll! Scan!
I see 'bit.ly/'! Now, play.
Holy $#!t, what's going on?
What's capital?? What's lower case!? Is that an L or a 1??
Holy smokes this one was tricky but, as always, loads of fun.
And I got a Bag of Coal! Yippee! Can't wait for the surprise to come!

They claim it's a system issue because they don't want to admit that there were a number of serious shenanigans going on during the 12 days. Notice the number of "new" people who were successful. Yeah, sure.

The 12 days of crap was just that- crap.

It's funny how when Woot! calls their stuff crap, it's ok, but when *YOU* call it crap, *poof* you get banned. Hypocrites.

I appreciate the inventiveness, but I think I'll be stuck in Stage 4 of grieving and loss on the old bagga de crappie.

You really have a conspiracy theory against a sale that is completely for fun and allows them to unload their "crap" onto us willing buyers? Its all in fun, I was fortunate to get one, but I went into it expecting not to and didnt care if I did because its a silly sale, no need to get worked up and create theories when you didn't get to purchase a box of crap.

Then they should auto-sign me out instead of making it look like I'm still logged in. And I don't share my laptop with anyone.

The only things I have to say are:
1. Thank you so much for the crap!
and
2. I really really hope that these (i.e. mine) Bags of Crapmas have the letter I've heard so much about!!!!!

edit: How do I get the special Brigadier of Carolling image in my signature?

First Brigadier of Carolling ever: 12/14/13!!!

At first I thought this was a parody of Eminem's Lose Yourself.

Kind of furious over here. I got a Brigadier of Carolling on the 12th day of crapmas, and for some crazy unknown reason I receive an email this morning saying that my order has been CANCELLED. What the heck!?!??! I did not cancel this!! What kind of bah-humbug is going on over here at Woot?? Someone needs to fix this, like, now!!

Sorry, only one purchase in the 12 days, we cancelled your second. Rules were in the description of each sale.
