This is the first time in recent memory that I didn't get one... Oh well, I guess it is Karma for me letting one expire unused recently...

I spent some time trying to work out which of the words in the message was the secret code...now all is revealed.

vote-for2vote-against

Also a proud member, and extra thanks to JumboWoot for pointing me to this thread.

vote-for1vote-against

I too am a member, thanks jumbowoot!! <3

vote-for2vote-against

Wahoo! Yay for well timed pre-woot-off coupon codes!

@carl669: I think the cachet of being a member is tarnished when the secret password is revealed to the great unwashed masses.

vote-for2vote-against

@videowallart: but the password only works if you're a member.

vote-for1vote-against

Heh, I emailed them and asked about the code since there was nothing in the email and they directed me here. This should have been my first stop. Thanks @Jumbowoot!

vote-for1vote-against

Thanks Jumbowoot!

lol sorry bout that spam email I sent you asking bout the coupon code. Should've checked here first.

vote-for1vote-against

Nice to be among the masses! I had to read the email 2x to be sure I didn't miss the coupon code. No worries though, any visit from JumboWoot is a welcome one.

vote-for1vote-against

Coupon (and code) are much appreciated. Now, to the bat mobile, @jumbowoot, we have product to rescue from the Amazon warehouse....

vote-for1vote-against

@jumbowoot: Thanks, jumbowoot, both for the coupon and for your response! I'd changed the email address associated with my woot account about a week before your generous gift was emailed out, and I'd only checked the new email. I should have thought of checking the other one!

Thanks again! :)

I was wondering what was going on. Good stuff, just used the code.

vote-for1vote-against

At least now I know I'm not just failing to find the code hidden in the email!

vote-for1vote-against

I read this thread before, but forgot to em myself the code so here I am back 3 days later.
Doh!

@jumbowoot: I would be honored to be a member of the Order of the Cockatrice. Please add me to the group, thanks

What body organ do I have to give to get a coupon... I have NEVER gotten one, I have been a member for longer than some who have gotten them, and have bought more than some... Grrrr.

vote-for2vote-against

@wingedsurfgirl: It's about participation, not purchases or membership duration. Vote on deals, make comments, vote on comments. That's how you become cockatriced :)

We will take a kidney, however.

Got the e-mail, found the code, gained access to the secret club house.

The email from Jumbowoot (head of deals.woot) was this:

Dearest Consumees,

Let’s get right to it, shall we? You’re the chosen few this month, the rare breed, the creme-de-la-sicles. You’re the ones who achieved, the ones who grabbed the brass ring, the ones who made the face while the teacher wasn’t looking and then stopped right before she turned around and caught your best friend instead of you. And, to be quiet frank, if you read all those horrible metaphors above, you deserve a little something.

So we bestow upon you the Order of the Cockatrice, with all the rank and privilege that such an appointment implies. By which we mean you just scored a $5 coupon (single use, no stacking, valid across all sites except Deals and Local) that’s good until November 30, 2012. We’d explain that means you can’t use it in December, but all proper Cockatricians already figured out that part, right?

-continued next post.

vote-for1vote-against

- continued from above.

Just like they figured out the magic condition this time was votes on a post tagged #electronics? Yeah, of course they did. You Cockatrices are some bad mamma-jammas.

So go forth, brave-hearted heroes. Spread your threatening, chicken-like wings and soar to greater heights. And we’ll see you next month… if you’re lucky.

Secretum Latina Codice Verba!

– Jumbowoot

So, @jasude and @wingedsurfgirl and everyone else who doesn't participate much: the first sentence in this post explains what you had to have done to be Cockatrice'd:

----> you had to vote on a post tagged #electronics in July.

Yes, that's rather specific. Such is life at times.

The point is that the only way to increase your chances of getting a coupon is to participate: post deals, ask questions, vote, make comments, answer questions, tattle on expired deals, etc. Do it all.

And even with all of that you may not get the August coupon.

But at least you will have tried.

vote-for1vote-against

... excellent, Smithers... excellent!

I'll share this only with my other proper Cockatricians... I'll send the information via letter to the Prussian consulate in Siam by aeromail.

Am I too late for the 4:30 autogyro?

vote-for1vote-against

Is also a member, as I did get the email. Didn't know about this posting though. Better late than never as they say.

vote-for1vote-against

I'm a bit slow, but used mine today. Thanks @jumbowoot!

Here I look but I do not find oh mighty $5 code that was not in they email. So I learned to read the same email 5 times thinking that no way would the all mighty woot gods forget to place the all mighty $5 code with in the email or at least not until April fools day. But yes the mighty gods screwed up and did forget to include the all mighty code. Thou shall sit in they corner and wright a thousand time "I will not forget the code"
