This here thread will be for any and all Bet on Colds that you might get during the March Woot-Off!!

Prepare for

31 days hath...crap

New rule for 2018:

Limit one bag per 31 days, per person. To clarify – you cannot have purchased a Bag o’ Crap in the previous 31 days, NOT counting the day you are trying to purchase. That’s Woot Math, and that’s our policy.

Read more here.





IT'S ANOTHER FREAKING CHANGE!!!!

With the addition of Free Standard Shipping for Amazon Prime members, we want the total cost of a Bag o' Crap to be the same for everyone.

For this reason, the price is now $10 with free shipping for everyone. There's no difference in the contents. It's the same disappointing crap as when you paid $5 + $5 shipping.

Note: if you have other items in your cart, you will be charged the appropriate shipping amount.

Note x 2: It doesn't count towards $5 ships all day. Sorry.





WHY DID I GET...

DENIED: We ran out of Bet on Colds before we even took your money so we denied your order to end the process.

CANCELLED: We ran out of of Bet on Colds right further down the process and we had to cancel the order to reverse gears.





Canceling Duplicate Orders

Due to a backend software change, I will have a different method to locating and canceling duplicate orders - people ordering another Bet on Cold 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.





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.









IS TO POST WHAT YOU GET!!!!


You gotta share. That's what's so fun about them. Join the community! Post away. Guess what you may get. What are you hoping for?

PS: It's also quality control for me.

So remember! No taking your Bet on Cold and running off with it.






Quick & Dirty Instructions for Imgur!

Could you go back in time to the creation of the calendar and add a few more days to February so that people who got a Bucket of Cobras in February could get one again this month? 😉

There is what to learn from the potato.

There is an updated calendar with 30 days in February, however it is only available via the Bet on Cold that will be sold later on.

It truly is a bummer watching bags of crap smear by as you sit empty-handed due to the 31 day rule.

To lift my spirits... I introduced two new people to the process and gave them hints on how to hopefully get one. I hope they end up fully disappointed!

Can't wait for the next woot-off!

It's easier if they just tell you their logon info so you can buy it for them. You get the adrenaline rush and they get crap.

My mom died a few years ago. Being reminded of saying that to her is bittersweet, but mostly good.

i don't imagine there will be any impact on server stats (imo), bc there are WAY more regulars than Bet on Colds sold last woot-off. i wasn't able to get one last time out bc of my work schedule etc, but managed crazily serendipitously to snag one tonite. and i assume that will be the case for many others. bring on the alway eagerly awaited (and unfailingly disappointing, LOL) carp!

I'll ask the Momma if she's up for another crap-hunt. I think I might've scared her last time yelling things like "click click click now DON'T click no-no-no!" at her.

Have to wait 'til she's up though. Which might be any minute, or any hour. You never know with 90yo's.

For a relative W00t! N00b, such as myself, could someone explain why the vaulted "Bag o' Crap" is sometimes called a "Bet on Cold". I get that both names start with the same letters. But so do a lot of equally bizarre phrases (e.g. "Buzzards over Canada", "Bring on Croissants", "Break our Code", "Best Ontario Comedies", "Bleating out Curses", and "Baking onion Cakes").

What am I missing?

It is a naughty word filter, we must not speak of the Bee of Cee. Just sit back and enjoy the wordplay.

They change it up with seasons/holidays/events. Probably is bet on cold because it is/was winter.

Question! So I scored a feb Bet on Cold and now my mum's interested in getting one today. Will she be able to with her woot account or is it only 1 Bet on Cold per 31 days per household?

Crap is popular and sells out very, very quickly. Thunder Thighs has been posting the server load for each round and you can see that many, many people are clicking away just as you are trying to score one. I'm sorry you failed this time but it's offered multiple times during a Woot-Off. I hope you'll try again.
