Box of Cats #9 (Woot Happy Hour 4/14)

April 20th, 2010 by Jim

We received our 9th box of cats today from Woot! This one was from the April 14th Woot Happy Hour. Here’s what we got…

Box #9 (Reported: 6.8 lbs and 13.1″ x 13.1″ x 13.1″, Actually: 6.2 lbs and 12″ x 12″ x 18″)

  • 2 Fleece Baby Blanket (new)
  • 4 Slinky Jr.
  • 5 Mini Tripod
  • 2 80 GB Western Digital Hard Drive (1 used–seems to be defective, 1 DOA–no power connector on the drive!)
  • 2 High School Musical Decal Wall Clock
  • 13 Packing Material (Texas Air, 12 inflated)
  • 1 Cardboard Box

Not a bad haul! No bag, though. Maybe I’ll ask for one to see what they come up with.

Thanks, Woot!
