And $11 this time too.  I reckon they are somewhat "extracting the urine"...

1-day: Were you quick enough to grab yourself a Bag of Crap last year...?! Did you ’miss out’ and only get the Dove Gift Set or the Gallaz shoes, or did you score big and get the PS3, the bike, the ping pong table or the iPod?

I've done this once with 1-day, and was disappointed.

Was slightly tempted to try again, but the site is under heavy load and to tell the truth, that 11 bucks could be better used on.. umm.. food.

Page crashed when I tried to order one... went to live chat and was told my order didn't go through.. so I ordered another.. now I have two orders waiting in my purchase history.. *sigh* you'd think they'd have their website be able to handle the traffic!

Though I notice 1-day has gone away from "shoes" now and other "might not suit the general population" items" so you might be lucky with something at least fun or donatable, a pair of wrong-size shoes are just useless! I remember searching "gallaz shoes" on trademe and seeing all the hordes of them being sold afterwards!

My 1-day purchases was very disappointing, had obviously got flood damaged for an extended period of time and it stunk rather badly and would consider to be a hazard (being a cooker). I'll contact their support channel and see how I go.

I ordered despite being told by many people taht it's generally useless junk.

I think postage was excessive this year...$5.99 irrespective of what you get.
