Whoop! Whoop! Time for a wacky new BOC Woot-Off game! It's called "Copy and Paste." Here's how you play:

  1. Locate the little URL (HINT: it's where the joke/clue usually is).
  2. Copy the URL.
  3. Paste the URL into the address bar.
  4. Check out. (Better have your payment info loaded)
  5. Hope you did steps 1-4 quicker than EVERYONE ELSE!
     

That's right. There is no weird gimmick, no math to do, no puzzles to solve, nothing. Just a WHOLE BUNCH of low-quantity BOC sales. That's the good news. The bad news is you probably missed out on, like, 12 of them just reading this.

luv u!
Woot

Gah! I wasn't signed in, and got the "sorry we sold out while you were being a non-signed-in dumbass" message.

I might be misquoting.

Congrats, Stryper2000. Only 18 seconds and you nabbed the first one: read the challenge, grabbed the url, pasted it in the address bar, waited for it to load, clicked to buy, and checked out. 18 seconds. Wow. And it was the only one, too!

Thanks to Woot's big anniversary, I'm no longer a bee oh cee virgin. Woohoo!

I hope I'm wrong about only one per new item. It'd be a lot more fun if it was 5~10 every few items.

Actually I just copied and pasted before realizing it was a Bandolier of Carrots I was already signed in and just hit I Want One and strolled through to the checkout and confirmed my order

I have to take my daughter to college tomorrow. Between the drive, the hauling of 3 dorm-room's worth of stuff, and the emotions (first baby to leave the nest), I should probably get some sleep.

Enjoy the craps dear Wooters. And remember, it's all about TT.

Yes, I've been promised that my stuff will make it in the woot-off Bandolier of Carrots. So you have a chance of getting something from me.

Ok folks!

It's been a long 15 months of waiting since I had my last BоC! And it is happening again! I just got myself one nice, big, fat, smelly, crappy baggy!!!

Still trying to come to terms and get it into my head that it is real! I scored a [censored] Bаg of Crаp!!!!!!

And good luck to all of the others trying! Looks like the fastest finger game is still on, but without server crashes now...

Love it, though one-per-sale is going to be hella hard. But I hope the writers enjoy their time off that this creates.


And on a completely unrelated note, is there an easy way to c&p on a tablet? Kindle, specifically? I can only highlight the whole flippin' page, or just the last part of a url, with an errant space thrown in.

Pardon me, would you have any bags of crap?

I didn't get one earlier. I slept. I'm not getting one now. I wept.
My heart is broken woot. I bet.

Ditto that....my page loads up way too slow at work, so by the time I get the link and click I want one, it's sold out in my cart, lol.

I snagged a day 2 Ultimate Challenge PM Badgers or Chipmunks. Can I get a Badgers or Chipmunks during the woot off too? That is...if I am fast enough with copy/paste.

It seems to me I should be able to since it is being offered in a different format. I see that once per week deal as one Badgers or Chipmunks for each way they offer them during that week.

I am guessing the woot! staff is monitoring this thread. However, if I don't see a response in the somewhat near future, I will probably copy/paste this in another thread.

I'm starting to think that I should have left all the "sold out" bags in my listing of missed deals...just to see just how many times I failed. Wait.....why would I want to do that to myself??

Both myself and my PC are old and slow. I cannot compete with the young and the speedy. I will leave this quest to the younger, hipper, tech-savvier, retired and unemployed. This giant time-suck is over for me.
