WHY DID I GET...

DENIED: We ran out of Big ol' Cornucopias before we even took your money so we denied your order to end the process.

CANCELLED: We ran out of of Big ol' Cornucopias right further down the process and we had to cancel the order to reverse gears.

SHIPPING

These are shipped UPS Surepost. That means that UPS may or may not hand off your crap to your local post office. For some whacko reason, they sometimes mark it as delivered even though it's at your post office.

Make sure to give it a couple extra days before panicking.

Canceling Duplicate Orders

Due to a backend software change, I will have a different method to locating and canceling duplicate orders - people ordering another Big ol' Cornucopia with a different account.

My guess is that I will find more than before.

If it looks like a duplicate, I will cancel it. No exceptions and no remorse on my end.

I'm currently on my phone.

Lately Enpass hasn't played nicely with it (currently running Oreo 8.1 beta). So even after waiting in VoP for several minutes and reaching login screen, I had to manually get my Amazon password from Enpass, go back to login for Woot, enter the password, and go through checkout.

Still managed to be able to throw away $10.84 on garbage.

Yay!

I missed out on thanksgiving crap, but scored this morning, although there was much gnashing of teeth and rending of garments as I had to pass through the vestibule before emerging victorious on the other side!

What awaits me in the Big ol' Cornucopia? I have no idea, and honestly, I'm a little bit scared! Woohoo!

Wait... I suppose it really depends on the situation.

Me: It's 10:06 est, I think the Crapvent calendar is updated with today's deal.

Rational me: You don't need what ever video game themed doohickey is there.

Me: But what if it's a Big ol' Cornucopia?

Rational Me: Then it's already too late.

Me: Let me just peek on the Woot App to confirmed that I missed it.

Rational Me: Why look and be disappointed that you missed it.

Me: Just a quick peek.

Rational Me: It's not worth it.

Me: Unlock, open app, finds crapvent calendar Onerous Massive Family Gathering! it's a Big ol' Cornucopia!!

Rational me: IT'S TOO LATE

Me: Going to the VOP, could this really be happening!?

Rational Me: Remember all those times you waited in the VOP and nothing happened?

Me: Logs into computer and sees Crapvent for today is sold out

Rational Me: Told you so.

Me: Mobile app asks me to sign in

Me: Onerous Massive Family Gathering!. there it is!

Rational Me: Onerous Massive Family Gathering!, Sign in!

Us: It's in the cart, wait what the heck?




It has to at least have been 10 days, or maybe not.

Double disappointment toMissed out on a Big ol' Cornucopia and my "Why am I doing this crap?" is coming via surepost later today

(for all you spreadsheet lovers out there) UNofficially, here is a spreadsheet I roughed out for the one per 10 days, starting with Black Friday. Thus, if you scored crap on Friday, Nov 24, then you would be past the 10 day limitation on ** note: Monday, Dec 4 should apparently read as Tuesday, Dec 5, as day of attempted purchase apparently does not count in the 10 day calculation ** See TT's post later on this page **



You may be right, I may be crazy

So I have a quick question:
How do you search for duplicates now? (I know you can't tell me exactly, then everyone who wants more than one will just work around your system) But, I'm asking because my brother and I often try to buy Big ol' Cornucopias together around the same time and since we also live in the same house, it could be seen as a duplicate. I would hate to see one of our Big ol' Cornucopias cancelled because it looks like a duplicate.

We upped it last year specifically to cover Christmas to New Years so more people would have a chance at craps.

She's said before that she primarily looks at credit card names and billing addresses. I know there are some other things in there as well, but basically if you're using two different credit cards without the same name you should (probably) be ok.

Dang, mine was one that got canceled. I was shipping it to a friend in Texas, even used their address for shipping. I'm sorry, TT, I thought as long as the destination address was different - especially by a state - it was alright to use the same payment & billing addy.

I did get through this morning. Your chart says I should be good to go but I got the dreaded "only one per 10 days" notice. I got my last crap on 11/24.... I did not score my crap until 1:23pm on the 24th. Is it to the minute?

=First EVA!

That makes 14 Craps for me!

Nope, it's 10 days not counting the day you purchased.

More technically, we look backwards. When you purchase, we look back 10 days - not counting that day - to see if you've had a crap purchase. That's 10 full days, not counting the day you're trying to buy the crap.

Ah, I think I found where I was confused!

In the 1793 French Republican (also sometimes referred to as French Revolutionary)Calendar design there were twelve months, each divided into three ten-day weeks called décades. The tenth day, décadi, replaced Sunday as the day of rest and festivity. The five or six extra days needed to approximate the solar or tropical year were placed after the months at the end of each year and called complementary days. This arrangement was an almost exact copy of the calendar used by the Ancient Egyptians, though in their case the beginning of the year was marked by summer solstice rather than autumn equinox

Frimaire ran from November 21 through December 20 and was considered the month of wintry weather.

Each day in the Republican Calendar was divided into ten hours, each hour into 100 decimal minutes, and each decimal minute into 100 decimal seconds. Thus an hour was 144 conventional minutes (more than twice as long as a conventional hour), a minute was 86.4 conventional seconds (44% longer than a conventional minute), and a second was 0.864 conventional seconds (13.6% shorter than a conventional second).

Clocks were manufactured to display this decimal time, but it did not catch on. Mandatory use of decimal time was officially suspended 7 April 1795, although some cities continued to use decimal time as late as 1801.

So I see your point, TT (and it's a decimal )

According to TT, it's apparently more like 11 days (day of purchase doesn't count in the 10 - day period) My apologies for any misinformation I might have unwittingly provided. Like I said, it was just something I roughed out and was certainly not intended to be official word. My bad.

Woot programming seems to be pretty good about letting you know when you aren't yet out of quarantine from your most recent exposure to crap.

Why did woot start charging tax on the shipping cost? Previous Big ol' Cornucopias cost $10.44 (5 for product, .44 for product tax, 5 for shipping), new Big ol' Cornucopia cost is $10.88 (5 for product, .44 for product tax, 5 for shipping, .44 for shipping tax?)

I’m seeing the tax increase on other purchases too, not just Big ol' Cornucopias....I just used them as an example)

Check with your state/city. In most cases, we are directed to charge sales tax on shipping as well.

1 shock for a truck
2 packages of konjac sponges

1 cocaine luggage tag
1 random rack to some random shelf? including the screws for it
2 mini iPad cases
1 mosquito repellent bracelet
1 canvas tool belt, I think?
