This is awesome. It looks like you guys are really trying to turn things around. You're more responsive and listening. This has been one of the more exciting wootoffs in a while. Even went down to the wire in getting a Bunnies Ogling Carrots but managed to snag one. Thanks Woot!

I got my first crap. At least that's what the email tells me. Couldn't be happier.

Weird, its in my acct now

And I just got 2 emails. 1 from Woot saying my credit card was charged, the other from paypal saying the $8 is coming out of my bank acct.

Strange seeing as WOOT wont let you use paypal w/a bank acct and not a CC.

Pretty sure i wasnt actually double charged, but if so I could care less. I can now sleep a happy man!

Anyone ever get a bag, mine always come in a box?



I just scored my 5th Bee Oh Cee and mine have always had a "Bagg" of some sort. One was a backpack, one was a camera bag (took that to a gift trade and they actually fought over it LOLOL), I can't remember one of them, but.....

My FAVORITE was when they sent me a galvanized Woot! bucket!!!!! That was an AWESOME 'bagg'.

Can't wait to see what 'bagg' I get with this Bee Oh Cee.........

[edit] -- and yes, I fondly remember when it was soooo much easier to score these treasures. Tonight is my first Bee Oh Cee since November of 08..... but hey, I GOT ONE!!!!

Yes and thank you for follow-up. It was an unusual multi-crap day indeed.

If the number next to your name in a post isn't matching the number when you hover the mouse pointer over your name at the top, just log out and back in. That'll sync 'em up.

The developer looked into a few specific cases and they all had multiple attempts at ordering to day (22 in one case!). I'm sure many of these happened during the 7:30 sale when it stayed up longer than it should.


Was I the one with the 22 attempts? Sounds like me. If so Sorry.


And thanks for being fast and informative TT.

i bet many of us had at least as many attempts, probably more (!). the lengths we go to to secure a Bunnies Ogling Carrots too funny

Ok can someone answer my question, i know its not about the Barrel of Crops but it is about woot..two things 1, how to you get a quality post and how to you give someone else a quality post and 2, how come i only have a choice of like 5 different avatars, and everyone else i see has all these different ones...what do i have to do to get a different avatar besides the 5 or so that it lets me choose from...thanks!

Frustrating because the order actually went through this time without any problems until I saw that message. Help?

I was thinking the same thing. And besides TT said:

"If you expect to get one of 3000 or so Bunnies Ogling Carrots..."

So, I'm expecting about 500 more to be released.

I can't believe how sad I am. I somehow managed to miss a whole day of woot-off and Bunnies Ogling Carrots and now everybody is saying how awesome the woot-off was! I always sit through the l.a.m.e ones and yet manage to miss the awesome one. I'm sad.
Okay just needed to vent. Sorry everyone, thanks for listening! Pity party over.

Enjoy your Bunnies Ogling Carrots!

Good for you, only 6 yrs. I'm on my 8th yr for Bandoleer of Carrots, and everything was submitted correctly and still declined. That would be my point, if they looked at recorded they would find that it was submitted an be the good guys. They should do right by loyal customers.

This wootoff reminded me of the first crap I scored. They had 6 offerings in that day. I have never seen them do it again except the Fake wootoff on Aprilfools day 3 years ago.

....This was a great day from one of the old timers.

Thanks

Holy cow! I thought I'd completely missed out on the Bags of Carrots, but I just checked my email, and I got one after all. Yay! Thanks, woot. I can't wait for it to get here.

I finally got brave enough to check my email. Third Barrel of Crops successfully purchased! I guess I have the wootalyzer to thank, but the weird thing is it didn"t even show a Bunnies Ogling Carrots It showed tools or something. When the order page suddenly came up I just thought I had accidentally hit the buy button instead of stop alarm. Luckily, I saw what it was and managed to get my order in.
Really, it happened so fast that afterwards I half wondered if the stress of this crazy woot-off had caused me to hallucinate Bags of Crap and maybe I had actually bought a $800 screwdriver or something;)
But now I can do a happy dance!
Sorry to all those not so lucky. I guess it's all random? Without the wootalyzer with autobuy I don't see how anyone has a chance. I held out for a while but now I am a believer.
