Our Postworker liked the box and asked what it was. Showed him the monkey. Only disadvantage is you cannot use it for re-shipping unless you have a lot of tape (our local postmaster doesn't like graphics).

@gmartell: The USPS in general does not like anything but flat brown or white. No extra barcodes or anything. UPS and Fedex however could care less. That is how woot! gets away with the graphics. They hand it off to Fedex and the postal service probably cannot complain about the boxes, when it is transferred to them.

I love the underground toilet and the sort of non-descript factory building that houses Deals.

It must matter where you live, then. I reuse those woot boxes all the time. I use amazon boxes too. No one ever says a word, they just slap the postage on it, and off they go.

I love my post office. I love my PO box (which I have in addition to my home address). On the other hand, I don't miss the post office I used to have to deal with in Hell-Ay. Nope.

@shrdlu: Well when you put it that way, then it must be something to do with LA/OC. I think all the sunshine makes them a little unable to handle something different.

I like the little Roomba zooming around. Looks like there is something perched on top of it, but I can't tell what it is.
Someone over on Woot mentioned the new boxes on April Fools Day. Didn't get much response, most likely we all thought it was an April Fools joke.

@catbertthegreat: I'm pretty sure that LA/OC qualifies as different in general.

I print my postage online. I've never had a problem with unique packaging.

My kitten loves the woot box. Granted he loves anything he can hang out inside of.

I don't know what to make of it yet. I am in the process of moving and using it to currently store my monkeys.

Can't find any monkeys on the box. Thought for sure I'd find a flying, screaming monkey somewhere.

[But I did find monkeys IN the box!!]

@shrdlu: I like having a PO box too. I got it mostly for packages (there is a package thief in my building). Problem is a lot of companies won't deliver to PO boxes.

@mtrlgrl: Yeah, I know about the companies that don't like PO boxes thing. I persuaded my semi-rural neighbors to let me get rid of the mailboxes, and go to a nice locked group one, with a special box for packages. It's nice, but our biggest problem was never theft. It was mailbox vandalism which usually affected the box on the end (mailbox baseball) the most.

It's really nice to have the box. I chose a nice sand color, which goes well with my yellow roses on the other side of the fence. Yes, I'm not kidding. I picked the color that would go best with my flowers. Grey? Eew. Black? Double Eew (and it would have been dangerously hot to the touch in our 100+ degree days in the summer).

Thanks guys, glad you liked it. I forwarded this on to our artists, who will hopefully be contributing more similar-styled artwork in the future.

I'm temporarily wootless. Does anyone have a pic posted?

@chris12345: That's a scream, thank you!

A friend has a son who loves gears. Hope she gets her boxes before he does, or she'll never see them again.

Does this mean that the old Woot! boxes I have laying around will appreciate in value? :P

@abramokids: Gasp! Just think of how valuable they could be now! :D
