So more info came in on my box today, its still 36.3lbs but the Dimensions changed too 29x16x15 in. I can't Google up any size close to this box, but I think its a deep box that is super skinny? Any ideas? I can't wait till Thursday for this thing to come!

One of two Birthday of Celebrations arrived this afternoon. Mine was a 24x13x13 box weighing in at 7.6 lbs. Containing:
1 Wootopoly game
1 Furinno adjustable, vented laptop table
1 set of mustache earbuds
1 small San Diego Chargers jersey
1 black camera strap
1 little green pouch.


All modeled here by my lovely daughter... Unfortunately, my wife's Birthday of Celebrations (her first) did not arrive today, though Fed Ex says it has been delivered. We'll give it until tomorrow and then send out the search party.

So... your neighbor didn't wonder why some random box from some random site showed up at his house with some random stuff in it? It would have me rather curious, personally. I can't imagine just throwing the stuff out.

Asus branded USB adapter tip/charger. Generic micro-USB charger. Paper ? bag. Men's L WOOT! branded shirt. ALL PRICELESS.

Nexus 7 Asus battery: $34 on Amazon.

HP branded power cord/adapter: $14 on Amazon.

Bottle On Ice bag, fill with ice and water to keep your wine chilled. $12 on Amazon. Coincidentally, I went to a vineyard yesterday and bought a few bottles. HOW DID YOU KNOW, WOOT?!?!?!???1?

Sylvania Projector Mount. $40 on this random website. A close-but-no-cigar match for the handheld projector I got in a Birthday of Celebrations a few years ago! Woot, you remembered! <3

BOSC:


Other World comic, paper ? bag, coupon, puzzle piece, last one is dutifully posted.

Two blank silver tees, Men's 3XL.

Some Motivation Required tee.

Shhhhhhh sticker.

Escape journal.

And my cat, just because. Playing with her favorite "toy":

CAT:


Kitchen sponge: 3 for $2 at my local grocery store.


Thanks, Woot!!!

The HP and Asus branded items (I do not own anything of either) and the Woot tee and silver blanks are up for grabs.

Pardon me, would you have any bags of crap?

I managed to snag a bag in the final round and dared to open it today. I can say it lived up to its title.

* For my "bag" I received one of those cloth 6-pack coolers.

* A NY Jets jersey - umm, although I'm an american football fan, I'm from the Midwest… Any trades?

* Single fuzzy hanger… like my grandma uses… in rose pink

* Set of resistance bands

* A seriously creepy as all get out doll from "Paddywhack Lane" - like no one in the house will get near it creepy!

As I said, it lives up to its title. I will admit looking at the set of resistance bands when they were on Woot a while back thinking they'd be better for rehabbing my knee than the silly ones the PT office gives you, but I remember the "beginner" ones being sold out. Haven't had a chance to do a good internet search, but IIRC the beginner ones were more primary colors, these are orange and red. Maybe I can make use of them. I am seriously jealous of some people's boxes - Sunflower hat? Sweet score, but at least I didn't get a set of golf clubs covers or a camera strap! LOL

What'd they do, walk?

Good luck with yours. I think if it shows up at the post office later in the day, I might try to pick it up myself.

1 Browns jersey, got it on now
Digital camera case
Elmo, still trying to figure out what he is singing
Altec Bliss silver headphones
1 band exercise

Pretty good haul.

Listening to the JBL speakers I got (with no transformer) from my first Birthday of Celebrations The GPS I sent back to the manufacturer because it didn't work and got a brand new one. Used to have to work for it. The new stuff seems to work. I got to admit the last Birthday of Celebrations was mostly fish food and I was about ready to let this one go, but who could not get one on the university?

Considering it's about a 2 and a half hour drive from Martinsberg to Allentown (where the Fedex places seem to be) they either have a lot of other stops in between or they spend a couple days looking inside the Birthday of Celebrations for the good stuff. lol

I would love to get it working, for me the problem with the tablet is the digitizer is not working and therefore is not worth trying to pay to get a new screen let Aline found one. I have found completely working ones online for what the cost of one would be. As I have a 14 year old we might use it to see how things are put together. Or put it up on eBay for parts. If I decide to part with it I'll PM you about it.

Looks to me like you are getting an underbed storage unit. At least the dimensions match on this thing. I don't see the weight listed, but guessing it could weigh 100 pounds if you had the right wood and it was filled up with zip ties.

How about this Vintage Steel Coleman Ice Chest filled with a bunch of zip ties? It has the exact same dimensions you have listed.

Just in case you are not aware, cats that are FIV positive can live with FIV negative cats, as long as neither are overly aggressive and prone to fighting. I used to volunteer at a shelter in Virginia and we used to care for and adopt out FIV positive cats all the time. Also I know a couple with FIV positive and negative cats and they have never infected each other. These cats share a water bowl, litterbox and groom each other... The virus is mostly spread through blood so as long as they are not aggressively fighting, they should be able to live in harmony.

So my second Birthday of Celebrations info from FedEx hasn't changed at all and it is supposed to arrive tomorrow. It still just says it has departed the Dallas facility, is 17x17x17 and weighs 31.5 pounds. Somehow I don't think any of those things are still true but I would think they would have updated by now.

Edit: They must have heard me. It is now in tropical New Berlin, Wisconsin and is 31x23x22 and weighs 32.1 pounds.

We are completely out. In fact, our warehouse is kinda echoing with how empty it is after this.

Wish my dimensions would update. The next stop for my package is the local post office and the weight and dimensions have remained the same the whole way. Highly doubt 17x17x17 is accurate.

No, other than seeing posts from a "Thunder Thighs" saying the second was in error. I think "Thunder Thighs" is a computer glitch also and we still have something coming. A glitch would be understandable if it showed on a specific item one had ordered, but to have 2 tracking numbers as many others have(and are receiving the second)is hard to believe there is an error or it is just a cruel joke played by this company known to conjure up craziness.

Just now getting to post my SBOC stuff... I got it on Saturday.

First off I got the Procrastination University shirt which I have wanted for awhile. Of course it had some extra material that needed to be trimmed off!



Next in the box was a plain green t-shirt which as you can tell my 3 year old was not too impressed with.



So I fixed it and he was happy after that.



The rest of the contents were just like the rest of the bags. Unfortunately the puzzle piece was already posted.

My Shirt B of C arrived yesterday. A decent haul!

1 plain navy blue shirt
1 Beverage War Between the States shirt (which is hilariously ironic for reasons I'm contractually unable to explain)
1 1-up Coffee sticker
1 pair of power meter socks (haven't checked if they'll fit my tiny feet)
1 Woot write-up comic
1 puzzle piece
1 Woot ? bag (hooray!!)

I will say, I ordered the Women's Large shirts, just because I have a pile of AA "medium" shirts that I'm lucky I can fit in to. The Woot large are more generously sized, so I can be a total glutton during this fall's holiday season and still have shirts to wear!

Thanks, Woot!

Well, you can keep waiting but Wootbot will be ready with an "I told you so" when you give it up. The ones getting the 2nd either ordered more than one Birthday of Celebrations or they got a letter in their original Birthday of Celebrations Otherwise, it's the glitch. Sorry for the confusion and getting your hopes up but them's the fact.

My Birthday of Celebrations finally arrived! It was a better haul than I expected for my 2.1lb 10x9x9 package. I got mine from the appsclusive.

1 – Elemental Eatery Shirt (small)
1 – Chuck Norris non-talking doll
1 – Woot ? bag
1 – Gunnar Groove Glasses (I already received a pair with the Birthday of Celebrations I got last year)
1 – ipico iPhone 4 projector (used, need to find an iPhone 4 to see if it works)
4 – generic iphone 4 cables
1 – random ASUS battery pack (used)

No jerseys, no camera straps, no calendar, no earbuds, and no camera bag so it was a little different than some of the other 1-2lb packages.

I got nothing that will be useful to me, but it was still a blast opening. Thanks Woot!

I got mine a day early, 18x13x12 & 5.4 lbs.


I got the following:
3 Turkey Timers (I could use 1 of these)
1 Barry's Boot Camp exercise bands (I know I'm out of shape & so does Woot)
1 Pink Kindle Sleve (I have 10" tablet, it won't fit)
1 4X Browns Jersey (I'm a large at most)
1 Ladies Medium stretch pants (I'm a guy)
1 Plastic Lunch cube with stickynote with codes on it (Nice box for storage)
1 Kodak Camera Bag with China air pouch (Will fit my point & shoot)
1 Showerhead (I need a new one, but this doesn't have the features that I wanted)

Not a bad box, not as useful as some, but it is definitely worth the $8 (Lazer kitty approves of the box from his Woot slaves). My girlfriend's street is having a block yard sale in September, so anything from the past few Birthday of Celebrations#39;s I got is going there to try to earn my money back.

You wouldn't believe it but my crap was crappeh!

- XL Buccaneers jersey (Not XL, nor a fan)
- A pair of socks
- Cheapy kids mosaic painting thing
- Yet another camera bag
- Exercise bands

I guess that means I effectively paid $8 for a pair of socks but as usual the anticipation was half the fun. See ya next time w00t!
