Can someone post the bit.ly link? For some reason I'm seeing http://bit.ly/14HMYdI/ and bit.ly is saying I'm using too many digits.

haaallelujah!! (i literally have the handel's messiah song playing in my head right now, lol). i have been wooting for 6 years and thought it would never happen for me, but it did! yayayayayyy. i hope i don't sound like i'm gloating, but i am so excited to get my first Bandolier of Carrots !

i will post pics when it gets here =D i am not expecting anything amazing (especially if they're being serious about giving us random items from woot staffers' homes). but for $8, i'm not complaining. woohoooooo

I got a Badgers or Chipmunks on my birthday...

Now it truly feels like a special day.

Bahahahah! I was the first sucker!

Here's what I did:

1) Kept a separate browser window open next to the first window, making sure to hit up my Your Account link every 15 minutes or so to be sure I wouldn't have to enter a password.
2) Already had bit.ly typed in the address bar
3) F5F5F5F5F5 in the first window as the timer counted down
4) As soon as the screen changed, I typed the rest of the URL
5) Crap!

OK, it's been 32 minutes, and it's still showing as me on the waiting list, and "Checking inventory" ... Am I SOL or can I still maintain some hope? (especially since I haven't had a denied message yet..)

How the HECK did that URl send me to some pioneer game? Really unhappy that now I've apparently added some subscription thing to my FB feed. Some of the Bandolier of Carrots past have involved such funky things, I thought that was just part of this one. Grrrr....

Does the Badgers or Chipmunks only show up on the first tab which is the Woot! tab? Or can it also show up on the other tabs that are currently having a woot-off? Example the home! tab currently has a woot-off.

Depends on the woot-off. For this one they've all been on the main page.

If you're lucky, maybe my cats (x2) will photobomb when posting bag contents.

Also, thanks to woot for making bags fun and more fair this woot off! It was nice to feel like you have a chance

Hey TT! Will each bag contain items from one woot staffer or will the woot staffer's crap all be thrown together? Will we get to find out who provided the items?

    I only saw one Bandolier of Carrots I keep looking...any hints about where else they appear? Are they like a new item added to an old batch of stuff?

    My name is actually Shannon. Someone beat me to the username race so I'm using an alias. Duh.

    There's been at least three of the 'url in the product image' ones.

    They've done 3. They did a Midnight One, one between 11-12, and then the after detour one. These are EST times.

    It's a mix. Some bags will be all from one staffer, some will be a hodgepodge. Some will have a little story attached to the items, some won't.

    This is going to be funny.... Great that woot finally got it right with beating the bots but the baggie of coolness are long gone. I gave them my last shot with the kids one recently but no more. Dollar store junk.... Only a few selected will get something really cool. Best thing i ever got was a taz footwarmer many many years ago.

    Ummm.. I think that's how it has always been. Someone did score a pretty awesome iBuyPower machine from Monday's Baggie.

    As far as getting an employee crap. I think that's happened to me once. I got a heavy bag and I was excited. It ended up being a very used and abused DirecTV cable box that wasn't even high def.

    Hi, shipping changed 5 months ago, when woot implemented the new cart system. You can read about it HERE. Please post your comments about the shipping changes there as well, this thread's for CRAP nabbin.

    I would gladly put a Bago Krapp together for one of these offerings and it would be awesome. I have so much well.. Krapp laying around from 9 years of wooting..

    Woot could send me a notification and a shipping label and I would gladly slap it on a Box and drop it at the shipping joint.

    I would even be wiling to send woot a list of the krapp prior to shipping so that you all could approve the contents are krapp worthy..

    Dead Serious.

    I was always under the impression that the east coast had faster loading times, since I see they have gotten more Bandolier of Carrots than those of us on the west coast.

    mandren wrote:Well, looks like im hosed on these. The Bandolier of Carrots info doesnt show on the product page,, only the woot home page. Unfortunately, on the east coast the home pages wont update until well after its gone. Usually i can get around it by going from the community page directly to the prouct page, but the "special" image doesnt show on there. Too bad. GL everyone

    READ THIS!!!!!

    Guys, part of the fun of the BOCs is reading what you got. Wooters like reading it and we like reading it.

    So rule #1 is to come back and post lists AND pics of what you get. Or videos. Or drawings. Just report back!

    The last few sales have been disappointing for me personally. I sent out 20 packs of custom playing cards and one person reported in. Last month, I went shopping for items. I wrapped about 10 items and included handwritten notes. One reported in.

    Please, you need to do your part. Share the fun with others. Don't just take the loot and run.

    Thanks!



    TT....I would be jumping for joy if I got a hand written note or cutom playing cards! We appriciate you! Ignore the haters!

    If you knew much about customers you'd know that you only hear from them when they're unhappy.
    If you need your ego stroked then maybe you need to work at a petting zoo or bathe the elderly. Never too late for a career change.

    Hate to say it, but working with kids, animals, retail, or elder care is the WORST possible idea if you want your ego stroked. All of those options, however, allow you to handle another mammal's poop at some point (or daily!) in your career. Weee!
