So basically, the holiday delay has just increased your anticipation, right?

How are you guys getting dimensions. All it says for me is:
Service type FedEx SmartPost
Weight 2.2 lbs/1.0 kg

What is Smartpost? Looks like it will arrive via USPS although it shipped FedEx

You have to use myfedex or the myfedex desktop agent to see dimensions. Smartpost is exactly that. Fedex part way then USPS delivers.

Yup... That's Smartpost Fedex carries it most of the way, then hands it off to USPS once it reaches your local area/ city for actual delivery.

To get dimensions you need to either use the fedex desktop tool or use myfedex. Either way you will need to register for a fedex login account( which you can actually do without giving them credit card info)!

My 1.9 lb Santa's Sack of Crap will now be delivered Tuesday, January 10th. The status just updated from a scheduled delivery of Saturday, January 7th. Is FedEx taking vacation again this weekend? What gives.

Same for me. I guess Santa's sack is still recovering from Christmas.

Just got mine this morning. Says on FedEx site 1 lb (which was definitely more than 1 lb).

1 x Foot flush
1 x Screaming Monkey
3 x Hand towels (still has tags on them)
5 x XL Woot plain, colored T-Shirts
1 x recyclable bag (looks like a good reusable grocery bag)

Overall, guess I'm happy. Definitely not my best bag, but not the worst either.

What is the 'Foot Flush' that some people have been getting?

Can someone post a close-up photo?

My Banoodles' Old Catnip arrived. Even now, FedEx still has it at 1 lb. In reality, it was closer to 5 lbs.

* 5-pack XL Jerzees t-shirts in a Woot! box
* 2 brown hand towels
* The infamous Footflush
* A green recyclable bag
* 1 Woot! screaming monkey! The cape is black with yellow smiley faces

The monkey made my day. Thanks Woot!

Any chance my 1.9 lb package is in reality closer to 5 lbs or do you think if it says more than 1 lb, it is probably the correct weight?

No clue. I'd venture it is a true 1.9 lbs. The Footflush itself has to be close to 2 lbs.

Mine is on the move again -- passed through KC Kansas overnight, probably headed to St Louis (Earth City), then due back in SW Missouri on Saturday, Jan 7. 2.6 lbs, 9½" cube.

My Bandolier of Confectionery just passed through the black hole of West Virginia (no offense to WV residents) and delivery date has been pushed back from 1/7 to 1/9. Fortunately, from what I've been reading, it will still likely show up on Saturday.

Still no update on package weight, though. Dimensions are still listed 12 in x 9 in x 5 in.

Anyone else have a similar sized box with a more accurate weight?

Hopefully you have better luck with Kansas than me. Mine left Kansas City on December 30th, and hasn't been heard from since!

Mine is still sitting in Texas. After looking at what people have been getting, no need to rush it.

It's funny how back in the day everyone that got a Burgandy Olfactory Center would all get one thing that was the same like a camera bag. Now everyone gets the same stuff. Use to feel more Random.

Ditto, with a destination of the NYC suburbs.

Any chance yours is heading this way as well? Maybe they're crapooling.

Same here, on the date bump... But mine's going to South Florida.

(Having said that, I usually still receive my items a day or 2 before the ETA from Smartpost. So I bet I still get it on Friday or Saturday, despite my 1/9 date.)

I think it's a function of the increased frequency of the woot-offs and the public demand for the crap. When you have a woot-off ever three months, you have time to build a stock pile of returns or things that you can't sell otherwise or things that you just can't store any longer and you need to get out of the warehouse. Now with a woot-off every month, sometimes two, you have the same amount of "random items" spread way more thinly. And you need a steady supply of not so random crap-filler. Now you have things taking up space in the warehouse just for crap. And a huge about of labor to build the crap. And people that only buy crap (sometimes more then one per crap). Suddenly it's not the attention getter it was. And it's no longer worth it to put returns in it, or all of them. Crap is still painfully hard to get and it always goes to the same people. Sure they spread the word, but it leave more frustrated customers that curse woots name. It might be a crappy death spiral. Woot may need another great idea from an ad wizard like TPW. Maybe they need to take all orders and pick 3000 at random to fill and cancel the rest. Maybe they create a SUPER CRAP and use amazons clout to get some pub. Maybe we should all stop complaining and just be happy that we don't have to flush our toilets with our hands like common street trash.
