I don't have tracking info yet, but am eagerly anticipating. Best of luck to everyone. I believe that I am going to take the tack of a few others in the thread here and open Santa Woot's present on Christmas morning. So, we'll see you all again on the 25th or 26th (avoiding spoilers!)

Haha, you could be stealthy - open it, rummage around, repack. Only some packing tape and your scruples....

Sorry, but I am new to this. I scored my first Bagpipe of Carnivores and my receipt shows that I actually purchased three, e.g. charged $8. Is the single tracking number for all three Bereft of Chickens?

Yes, and you should receive no less than 4 items in that package, a bag of some sort, and 3 craps.

To make sure I understand this... 1 bag and 3 carps for each one. So a total of 3 bags and nine carps, yes?

Nopes. Bags of Crap are special. You will get at least 1 bag (or bucket or memory pouch or whatever) and at least 3 craps. You might get more than 1 bag (common with the wine bag crappings)... You might get more than 3 craps... No promise though of 3 bags and 9 craps.

    The tracking info of mine shows but the weight is just 1.0 lbs/.5 kg.

    They are going to send one paper to me or what?

    Was wondering where my tracking info was, thanks to those who posted for us noobs. Found my placeholder with fedex. Was a little dissappointed in that the "weight" showed 1.0 lbs. Any validity to that? I would just assume that the better Balloons of Carbons woudl weigh slightly more.... ?

    just a quote from the top of page 23 for the previous two posters' benefit:

    1.2 If your weight shows as 1lb, it is most likely a placeholder, which will be replaced by more accurate weight once the package actually starts moving (or reaches a sorting station - see below). The dimensions will probably show as NA/NA/NA on those placeholder packages. Some people have reported packages showing as 1lb all the way until delivery, but turned out to be anything but, though there's always a slight chance that your package actually is a 1 pounder. So you never know.

    Got mine too. The 1 pound bags are only placeholders (for the most part) until the package is received by FedEx and actually weighed. It should update to the actual weight soon enough.

    At first I thought I had to wait longer for my tracking information as it was blank. Turns out clicking "Re-submit" on my previous 50 attempts didn't work, and I had to start fresh and reenter my info.

    Just like many others reported - tracking by reference now shows a placeholder. So at least the label was printed. Not Woot Gods just need to attach it to a box full of crаp and get it shipped!

    Thanks to the guy who posted the tracking guide a couple of pages back, now I know how to track it before the shipping e-mail comes!

    Oh... wait... That was me... :/

    Woot Gods, do you randomly apply the labels to already filled Bags of Crap? Or is the label put on first and then filled with Crap?

    I must know the answer to my burning questions!

    I am wondering the same thing, but I have looked at some stuff about well organized warehouses, and I am thinking with between 2500-3000 craps per month, they just spend a couple days filling boxes, and sealing them, and then apply the labels in some automated method, although the other method might mean your woot karma could get you a better box if they see your label and grab an armload of stuff

    I have mine shipped to work to share with the people here, but the kids also want in on the fun. What I do is open it from the bottom at work and repack and retape it. So when I get home the kids can open it like its the first time.

    I'm on the trackable list as well now. The upside is that it's just a placeholder so it could be anything. The expected ship date is yesterday.

    I think I'm not going to get a letter since those are probably special cases but oh well.

    My letter went out the same as the others as far as tracking went (back a few years ago). It LOST weight, from 1.2 lbs, down to 0.6 lbs. I got it near the end of the postings ( or at least the 2nd half). So DON'T give up hope, and remember the Burgandy Olfactory Center rules!

    Can you share the contents of your epic haul? Let us live post-vicariously through you?

    (edit Oh is that the haul in your signature? I think I got a Burgandy Olfactory Center in that haul as well (no letter of course)

    Question about the bag(s).

    I got one (first time ever) and I remember in the order screen under quantity, it said one only, don't be greedy, or something of that nature.

    I thought normally it says to order 3, but I figured I was not going to mess it up, so I just clicked order, and my receipt says 1 Bag of Coal. Is this normal, or should I have changed the quantity?

    You used to have to select a drop down on the order page to select 3 but they removed it some time back. Now you only need to get 1. You did it right.
