I'm so lazy.... I really wish whenever these threads were made they would type the URL.

More junk than usual this time. It seems that they have smaller quantities though. The next item comes up pretty quick.

I wish this desktop was a little cheaper. I really need one but $585 for a refurb is a bit steep.

Agreed. Glad I gave up when I left work last night. I really missed nothing of value. Any guesses when it will end?

Lots of crap. I must've counted 5 or 6 webcams.

With the way the site's running now, you'll need a lot of luck to get a BOC.

The current item may take a while.

Vizio 50” “Jive” Plasma HDTV
$1,099.99

EDIT:

Nevermind. They only had four and it took about a minute for them to sell out. :lol:

The current item is Server Error in '/' Application, and it appears that it's free!

If you need a refurbed Vizio, today's your lucky day. I'm hoping they have a Dyson Vacuum.

So a 2 for Tuesday Wootoff? Oh jeez...

EDIT: Oh *I* see, it is the same item every time. Weak... how many people do you think will buy these hoping to get to the next item?

achau9598
04-01-08, 10:41 AM
well, considering the first item was a Bag of Crap, people will be buying with the hopes that there is another.

and there it was ... and there it went ... anyone get one? my confirmation screen is still refreshing

I did not... but only because I wasn't logged in. Now I'm logged in and got my Wootalyzer running, so when the next one pops up I should be ready for it!

haha a Woot Off with the same 2 items and bags of crap mixed in. Brilliant way of clearing stock.

Actually the BoC was the 9th item and then the 23rd ;)

Man this takes a long time. The BOC took a long time to sell out this time around too!
I guess I'll chime in later if I get confirmation. I put in 2 orders for 3 BOC items each.

Your right, it hung around for a long time this time around. I only put in one order for 3 I should have done 2 orders like you. I too have no idea yet if it actually went through though (if so it will FINALLY be my first BOC order) :fc:

I thought that's against Woot rules - so I'd be surprised if you even get one.

I'm "in line" for when some greedy american's credit card is maxed out and can't afford the $8.

That would suck, and if I would have known that I wouldn't have done it. Oh well, here's to hoping that another BOC shows up later.

Well, tried to get in on the BOC this time around, but it said that I already had that purchase on my account. My account page says otherwise, but maybe it just hasn't updated yet. Yay for me I guess! Hopefully I'm in for 3!

I know about the woot rule about only allowing 3 total BOC, but dos that apply to the next BOC that comes up? anyone know?

I actually am holding my breath, I have never been this close to getting a BOC before

mrmagoo

did anyone have thier BOC show up under "my account" yet? Mine still has not :(

Thank the gods I didn't hold my breath. As one of the 2378 who got the "already purchased" bug - Woot gave 500 Free BoCs to the first 579 people who submitted their order. I was one of the lucky ones - just informed about it. So if you got that email explaining you might be a lucky one - check your woot account for the new Boc!

YAY! First Bag! Took a year of trying :)

It is a Bag Of Crap. Many nicknames for it, all with the same initials, BOC. Basically a grabbag of mystery items. You get one bag with up to three craps inside. You have to select 3 though, the default is one. Basically it is woot selling useless junk. The vast majority of craps, are just that, crap. Rarely people do get usable items in the crap bags. Sometimes they even get soemthing real nice. I have heard rumors of flat scrren televisions, roombas, among other items. these, however are few and far between. The vast majority of the time you will get stuck with a used cordless phone (someone else got the base), a calendar from 1983 or some guys banana peel from lunch the day the box was packed. Oh, you might be lucky and get the elusive air pillows.
Good luck in your quest for the elusive Bag of Crap. Woot has so many people brainwashed that as soon as this item comes up for sale, there servers are swamped and they sell out in a matter of seconds.

Yeah, that's the ticket, tell them the BOC has stuff in it he won't want. Excellent plan! :up:
