Hi, just replying to your thread because I have posted 4 times now and nothing has shown up. Maybe this post will get into the thread.

Okay then...now that I seem to have a post that folks can see...

Got mine today. Contents:
2 pkgs Woot Cedar Grilling Planks (6/pkg)
3 pair 180s Ear Warmers
3 Nuby Natural Touch Bottle Drying Racks
5 pair Agoo Leggings
1 Gwen's Nest tote

I will use the ear warmers and possibly the grilling planks. The rest will be given to friends with children and one friend that is expecting.

So I got my bag o' condors today, first ever!
1-2 Woot! brand cedar grilling planks
2-1 spin dock latop swivel (lazy susan?)
3-miniature flying monkey w/ Woot! cape
4-bag made of crap w/ floral print



I've heard several wooters complain about not receiving all of their crap when they got like 10 pieces of crap. What is the "required" number of pieces?

I know the Big o' Cosmos commandments say I'm not supposed to complain about the crap we receive, but I'm pretty sure I was supposed to get 1 bag and 3 crappy items. Sadly, I only received a bag, and 2 items: a snuggie, and a random usb cable. But even though I'm disappointed, Rowan thanks you for the bag.

I know a few others said they were getting theirs via Home, we were thinking it might be fancy goodies. Still wondering how special I am. My box departed Texas on the 9th but no updates since then. Still at the placeholder 1.0 pounds with no dimensions too. OH THE AGONY



Got both of mine today via FedEx Home:

Level 1 (good box...very happy!!)
17 x 14.2 x 11

9 Bags of Texas Air
1 Bamboo Children's Leggings
1 Pack of 2 Leak Frogs (can use these)
1 Brown Woot Paper Bag with a ? on it
(will pack my lunch in it)
1 Logitech Mini Receiver
(goes to someone's keyboard or mouse)
7 USB Sandisk Cords
1 UltiMotion Video Game
(a knock off of WII...but excited to try it)

Level 2 (Elmo very cute)
16 x 12.5 x 10.4

1 Brown Woot Gift Paper Bag with a ? on it

Finally got dimensions showing of:

Still showing 1 LB just like the two above did.

I'm not sure why these were delivered by FedEx Home but am very happy because I'm sure I wouldn't have them by now!

THANKS WOOT...AWESOME!

"While many letters went out in the 04/01 BoC" So maybe more than 2 went out?

And it sounds like people are going to get a steaming pile of poo

And it looks as if I won't be getting my Big o' Cosmos til next week, it is scheduled to come in on Saturday and I only have a tiny window of opportunity.

That Motorola electronic gadget you received I think is the monitor to a baby monitoring system. I seen a ways back that someone received the camera part but not the Monitor and I think you have it. Not good if separated. It's funny to see the other one and now this one. Mybe he'll find you.

Well my Big o' Cosmos has been sitting at my local fedex store for 3 days, it went out to the usps at 1am yesterday. Thought for sure it wouldve been waiting for me after work today but no. Wonder whats taking so long.

anyway, here's probably a Jatravartid question. Are all Big o' Cosmos's and woots sent with delivery confirmation? Just noticed that mine was D.C. when I checked on it from the usps website.

Tomorrow I get the first Big o' Cosmos for me!

Sarah Jones was on Survivor Marquesas, along with Hunter Ellis that someone got during this woot off as well. Leave it to Woot! to get signed t-shirts from Survivor players that were booted off early on an obscure season that not many people watched.

level 5 crap

2 x cedar planks
4 x those strawberry bag things
2 x fuzzy dice
1 x recycled tote
1 x fuzzy love cuffs
1 x self assemble hula hoop

My first crap ever and I am content. I keep the planks and give the rest to the wife, well give her all but the cuffs. Putting the cuffs on her doesn't quite constitute giving them to her does it? ;) I was going to snap a photo with my doggie in there to be cool like the rest but I dont have one of those online photo storing accounts so it seemed to be too much trouble.

Sniff sniff. Hopes were up. But now shattered ..... I wonder if the poor kid ever asked about show and tell. He probably never knew to ask. His mom tells him everyday about this note she wrote for him, but he never saw it. It sits on my kitchen table with his backpack. If there was only a way for me to reunite him with his backpack he could fully trust his mom again.

! I know I'm never going to get a letter from woot, after all the obscene hate email I sent and woot never replied to (even with just a courtesy restraining order) when I didn't get a Big o' Cosmos in the past !

What are "quality posts" and how do you get one?

Cool beans! Mine arrived in Oregon, which is where I live, which is nice. Also nice is that the delivery date got bumped up a day. Should be here tomorrow!

Hey.. I lost the wireless dongle thingy for my Logitech keyboard last time I moved.. I wonder if it's a compatible one... you got any plans for it? ;)

My Crаp arrived earlier toda...eeer..yesterday - precisely hitting the projected delivery date.

This time around I got a "classic" version, that contained exactly one bag and three craps plus lots of Texas Air.

The rundown:

21 x Bags of Texas Air (they are GREEN!)
1 x Striped bag (Claimed by wife)
1 x Ear Muffs (Put away until next season - specific user not yet defined)
1 x Toy Cell Phone (For younger child)
1 x Box of 12 Woot Branded Cedar Grilling Planks (the grilling season almost here - yay!)

While nothing here is unusual as compared to other reports, I'm happy (had much better craps, but also had worse) and what is even more important - wife concluded that it was worth the tab. She immediately put in an order for Cedar Plank Grilled Salmon - so as soon as I de-winterize the grill, that one is coming!

Thank you Woot for another exciting few weeks, and for the haul! The fun never ends!

Level 3 crap (8.7lbs) was almost delivered yesterday. I have to trek down to the local post office today to pick it up. Wheee! They're always suck fun folk.

I'm soooo hoping for fat memory cards but I'm sure it's just bottle racks/cedar planks. We'll see.

1 x screaming monkey keychain
1 x lampshade (ugly shade of gray...and of course no lamp to go with it)
0 x texas air

(does anyone know how to wire a screaming monkey to a lamp socket and base so if you turn the light switch on, the monkey screams?)

I think they should post a listing of all the letter winning craps. They don't have to list the person's name even, just let us know what craptastic stuff they got.

The woot! Cedar Grilling Planks are great! Easy to use, keeps the grill clean, and grilled the salmon perfectly ~ delicious. Not something I would ever have thought about ordering, but got 2 packs in my Big o' Cosmos. Next weekend we are going to try another fish or meat. Thanks woot!

According to the USPS, my 1.2 lb Big Orphaned Cetacea was "undeliverable as addressed". I'm not sure why; my address is correct on my woot account. I figure these labels are printed out automatically, so I seriously doubt that someone typoed it or something.

Even worse: I can't figure out how to contact my local post office branch. When I look them up on the USPS web site, the phone number listed is not for my branch.

They say that they're returning it to sender. I hope it's not going to go all of the way back to Texas...

I just got this response:

Hi Jennifer,

I apologize. We determined after some internal discussion that you, among many others, were accidentally shortshipped on their Big o' Cosmos orders. We've entered a replacement Big o' Cosmos order to be sent out to you. You don't need to return anything received already. Tracking data for the replacement should be sent to you when it is available. If you have any questions or need any further assistance, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Yay for more crap!!



I just emailed them back again, mentioning this... fingers crossed that they also decide that they shorted me with the "Bath Set".

ReginaFilangee wrote:Each of the 6pks of planks counts as a single crap, since that is how they were sold, and wrapped (single wrap around 6 planks.) Just because they put them in a separate box inside the big box doesn't make them a single crap. They did that so they wouldn't flop around inside and potentially smash anything else in the bigger box.



I don't know about everyone else but this sounds like a bs to me. I have never seen woot sell the planks on anything but a two-for-tuesday deal where it is twelve planks. I haven't ordered a Big o' Cosmos before but seems to me a crap should be the same way it was when it was being sold. Sounds short-changed like with the bath sets.

Here I was thinking my crap does not arrive until friday (while I am out of town) and every day as more packages are delivered and there is no letter, the higher the likelihood that I will get the infamous w00t letter.

Then, like that, the ominous quote from threepiecewoot "...that isn't one of them. You may actually want to consider yourself lucky.".

Now I am very afraid.

Ahh, the wonders of SmartPost. Someone posted a link to a primer on how SmartPost works. Basically FedEx uses their trucks for the bulk of the delivery, but then uses the USPS for the local part of the delivery. I guess it saves someone money, but I've yet to figure out how.

ETA: My box o' garbage seems to have taken an extended vacation in WV. Been there for 4 days, now. Estimated delivery is today, but I don't think that's going to happen if it is till in WV.
