Woot BOC Discussion
« on: July 16, 2019, 11:40:38 AM »
I just bought one after all these years, finally.

I know there was talk recently of what others have received, anyone have any recent info since there was quite a bit around lately so much so that even I managed to get one.

And yes, I was posting it here also and it died mid-post, literally, I put it here, previewed it, and clicked the link to make sure I had the correct one and I saw it sold out  ::)

But this was the link for the record: https://sellout.woot.com/offers/bag-o-crap-purple-daze?ref=w_cnt_wp_2_8
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

I have one coming on Wednesday. I have gotten about 9-10 in the past but 0 in the last few years. It usually is true to it's name but I always find at least one thing that makes it worth it.

Maybe it should be named BOC +1?

I haven't bought much from woot recently - I used to buy a lot of things there, but IMHO, things went down when they were bought by amazon.

I've had 4 BOC's in the past few years, but unfortunately, I got exactly that - Crap. Some things in my previous BOC's:
- A Laptop stand
- A six-pack of Bras in a size that no one in my family could use
- An Oversized pen
- A toy gun that shot soft pellets
- A Laptop case Strap
- Some skincare products.
- A Dr. Laura Doll
- A mini screwdriver set

Granted there are many people who get TVs, laptops, etc. But those people are somewhat few and far in between.

Does buying with AMEX help cover all eventualities?

I would say that if you get anything that is not a BOC  than you should be fine ;)
May you slide down the banister of happiness & get many splinters of success up your career.

Amex return doesn't cover a refurb. Most of what woot sellers is refurb. It would also be hard to prove what you purchased and the value therein to them.

Sorry, I just saw Friday, didn't realize it said the 26th. Good news is, delivery date was moved up to today, but I don't know if it will come before I leave town today. I'll have to give my UPS driver a call

Well, it says it was delivered, but it's nowhere to be found...
