FIFTEEN THOUSAND BAGS OF CRAP
We’ve been waiting a long time to do this. FIFTEEN FRICKIN’ THOUSAND BOCS starting on Friday, and running into next week. During the Woot-Off (see below), on the app, on social, during Woot Locker (see further below). We’re gonna break the site. But it’s worth it.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN THE 31-DAY BLACKOUT HAS BEEN REDUCED TO 5 DAYS. SO IF YOU GOT A BOC LAST MONTH YOU CAN GET ONE DURING BIRTHDAY. AHWOOOOOOT!!

FRIDAY, JULY 12 - SUNDAY, JULY 14

15Bday_DigitalCrap
We’re launching a brand-new Digital Crap Birthday game!
What’s Digital Crap? Well, that little hyperlink there will give you the background on Digital Crap, but the long and short of it is: If you’re having a hard time getting a Bag of Crap during the Woot-Off or during Woot! Locker, this could be your savior…

George Takei Is Back
You may remember him for stuff like Star Trek and his recent Broadway show, but he’s probably best known for turning himself into a cat for our 10th Birthday back in 2014. This time he’s sprinting into the forums at on Friday, July 12 at 2pm CT for a 15-minute LIGHTNING ROUND OF RIDDLES. Each time a riddle is answered (by anyone!) we’ll unlock a bunch of Bags of Crap. It’s an amazing double-take of internet synergy! Plus he said yes when we asked him.


BIRTHDAY IS ALMOST HERE! HOLD ON TO YOUR BUTTS! Make sure you’re signed up for Woot!'s Daily Digest and newsletter emails, and you’re following us on Facebook and Twitter, AND you have the Woot! App, ANDDDD you have a 6-month supply of pork rinds. JUST IN CASE.

UPDATE 7/15/19: WHAT HAPPENED WE BLACKED OUT FOR A WHILE

For those wondering, the limited edition B0Cs were $50 when they were sold in July and November last year.


The 150 quantity feels like a downgrade, however, as there were 14 each hour last year for the 14 hour Woot Off, thus totaling 196, although some people cancelled their orders.

Offering 10 an hour for the 15 hour Woot Off just doesn’t feel as symbolic.

I feel like I need to test my home network vs my work network then I’ll know how I’m feeling lol.

Edit: plus I set aside a chunk of money a couple of months ago for this. There’s never a better time to stock up on basalmic, magic erasers, or solid sterling Harry Potter VHS tapes.

I might try to buy some $1 stuff. Think I’ll skip the expensive BOCs this time. Woot Locker never gets low enough price to be interesting.

Or we could spend our money on something we really want.

Like that free coon dog on craigslist. Or an icee.

Hey! No fair! My joined date is when I started using the new forum. How did you get your original date to come over?

And of course, I’ll be camping with no cell phone signal so I’ll miss out on all the fun (and disappointment). :frowning: Maybe I’m lucky?

And yet, there will still be some Wooters complaining about not being able to get one.

Any chance Woot will zero out the 31 day counter for the June BoC winners who weren’t paying attention to what month it was?

I think the Limited Edition BoCs are excluded but I’m not 100% sure. @ThunderThighs?
