The monkeys have arrived!! YAY!!

Fedex said today the 30th, but they actually came yesterday! WOOHOO!!!

My nephews loved my other Woot monkey, and I got 2 for them this time, oh the joys they will bring upon me knowing they are driving their parents NUTS sling shotting these screaming monkeys across the room!!!

Well I am now awaiting the next Woot off...the late nights...the anticipation of when will the Boggy Old Creature come up...waiting to see that Sold Out button, and then continuously hitting F5 until the next wonderful thing pops up!! AHHHH I will have withdrawals from Woot until the next one...is there any such thing as Woot Anonymous? Boggy Old Creature Anonymous? Screaming Woot Monkey Anonymous?

I hope all you Wooters have a HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!! See ya in 2010!!

Estimated delivery Jan 2, 2010


I got these for my dog, he doesn't know or care when Christmas is, but it seems like it could have got here sooner if Woot had a midget sling shot it, walk up to it and slingshot it again, walk up to it...etc all the way here from Texas!

Maybe things would have gotten sped up if we'd all forwarded the tracking notifications to Woot's help desk from the beginning.

I hear fedex shuts down for a large brick of days around Christmas adding to the long wait... and I'm there will be a similar delay over new years.

Smart Post has a 2-8 day delivery time frame. What delayed these was the 10 days it took Woot to get them to FedEx. I can only imagine why:

Bob:"Hey Jim, thanks for taking the monkeys to Fedex for me."
Jim:"What? I didn't take them, that was your job!"
Bob:"I know it's my job, but remember, I had a hangover on the 14th, so I thought you took them!"
Jim:"Look, I've covered for your drinking for years, you're an adult, face real life, man!"
Bob:"Well thanks alot for nuthin'! Now people are gonna be makin' fun of us on the blog!"

My Woot monkeys showed up in my mailbox on 12/30. So the kids will be able to launch them around at the New Year's party!

Dammit woot, i usually give 2 of these away and just keep one. But no, you had to go and send me 3 different patterns, 3 equally awesome monkeys i now have to keep...so i guess it was worth the 3 week wait

Got my monkeys on the 30th! The mailman knocked on the door, dropped em on the ground, and scared everyone in the house when they went off!

Of course, 2 of my 3 monkeys have already been taken by friends (I always keep 1 so I have my own personal collection).

It only took 21 days for them to be delivered. Much better than my Woot! Shirts that seem to have never left yet.

I got the same tracking info although mine still only says departing from Dallas, TX. I'm starting to think this delivery person is on a bicycle. W00T I've already missed xmas and New Years, please make them arrive before Martin Luther Kings day. I got 3 angry people who were expecting a Screaming Monkey. (Yes I'm one of them.
PS. Perhaps you can attach a nitro boost to speed up the delivery man.

Mine have been in transit from from Coppell, TX since Dec 29th. What is odd is that they were in transit from Salt Lake City, UT (final destination) on Dec 24th.

I don't care if the monkeys don't like Utah. This is getting ridiculous. If woot knew anything about customer service they would at least refund the shipping charges.

If you haven't yet, you may wish to get in touch with service@woot.com with your order number and let them know the monkeys seem to have gone native during their Christmas holiday. Apologies for the inconvenience.

And if you get Kristy, let her know I'm coming for her.

Did you know shirt.woot ships internationally? Get you some!

Finally got mine today.

For those of you wondering, these ARE the same as the ones sold on May 15th, 2009. They must all be cut from the same cloth that has a lot of variation. I got 2 that look like the one from this time's picture and 1 that looks like the picture from May

Just got mine today, which is weird. My mom ordered after me, same town, a few blocks away, and got hers a week before Christmas. I get mine a week after new years. Hmm.

While still not delivered, at least mine are now (allegedly) in my town. So maybe, just maybe, I can enjoy some woot monkey madness this weekend. God I need a life.

I think my monkeys got jacked!



I live in an apartment, and "the addressee" was at work at 2:54. It also wasn't waiting for me when I got home at 9:30. Sadly, I was too far away to hear them scream for help. (If only they'd delivered it on their first attempt. I don't know why they didn't, but I'd just run to the store to pick up my scrips that day.)

Should I put up "Lost! HAVE YOU SEEN MY MONKEYS" signs in the hallway?

Pardon me, would you have any bags of crap?

Post a "REWARD" for any and all lost monkeys. Because if they get into the wrong hands someone will eat there brains. And there screams will be heard no more.
