Did you watch the Amazon Original Series Betas (which ends its first season this Friday the 17th)? Didn't think so, which is exactly why we're filling our beloved Bags o' Crap with 50 Rokus (Rokii? Rokum?) that we got to promote their show. So, um, ahem:

Amazon Betas Amazon Betas WoooooOooooooOOOOOoooo Amazon Betas it's so funny and there's the guy with the beard who we think is named Hobbes and who is funny and it's about guys trying to make an app and you should just watch it! 

That's right: We're total shills, but you can't call us that if we say it first (according to basic elementary school law), but in business-speak we're "leveraging" "cohesion" between our "synergistic brands" to bring you some rad BOCs.

How can you get one of these totally-worthless yet highly-coveted bags of absolute garbage? Play the first ever Woot Shill Game! Throughout this Woot-Off, check the main site (Woot.com) for a graphic with three different URLs. One of these URLs will lead to a BOC sale page, and two will lead to something even worse, so choose wisely. 

TL;DR:

  • Check the site for a graphic with 3 URLs
  • Pick one of 'em and type it in
  • Buy a BOC if you're lucky enough to see one (pre-load your payment info!!)
  • Give a big thanks, or a like or a follow, to Betas if you get a Roku or something else that's cool

Step 5: Miss the old days when a Bungled Original Communicator would just randomly pop up on Woot and you'd madly scramble to the hit "I want one" button only to see the "404" crash screen.

*sigh*

I miss those days.

I don't get it. Check the site? The main page? Any page?

I don't even know why I come back here anymore.

The 12 days of crap was just that- crap.

It's funny how when Woot! calls their stuff crap, it's ok, but when *YOU* call it crap, *poof* you get banned. Hypocrites.

my guess...possibly will be in the picture area of the item?

quality posts: 1 Private Messages Ermac

is it really that confusing? I'm assuming with each new deal there's a chance the graphic will have the URLs on there. Not that the URL is hidden in a graphic RIGHT NOW.

But then, maybe I'm the one mistaken and confused..

Crap scored on second try. First URL was a loser, but third worked on second try after making error on O/0.

I was sure I was too slow to get one. Where's the competition? I thought I was gonna be here all night to get one. Thanks all for being so slow.

Added it to my cart just in time... to have it sell out. Curses! Great idea, though. 17 minutes is probably a record long Bungled Original Communicator time nowadays.

Sweet sweet crap. Thank you Woot! Now I can relax and enjoy the rest of the Woot-Off.

In case you still don't understand where to look. Although the location of the image might change.



Update: The image will always be in the same place on the page. If you do not see this image, that means there are no bags to win at the moment but stick around and refresh your page for a chance to catch it.

Dear woot staff.

Got one!! I had a feeling that they'd throw up the first set after the first Woot-off item. Went with the 3rd URL on a hunch but I could have sworn I was too slow. Now I can actually get some work done tomorrow...

Yeah... I'm not expecting to really see another one. Maybe... one more... and it looks like it may not even be tied to the item since it's tied to the banner...
