The bot has managed to find phosphorescent dinosaurs somewhere on the internet, take a look at the specimens sent to youmayhavenoticed over on Instagram.
The bot buys quite a few Dr. Who knickknacks. This pocket watch is listed for nearly $20 on Etsy ($15.50 + $4.02 shipping)!
Take a look at Jessica’s latest hands only unboxing video where she opens seven more packages ordered by the bot…
I just discovered all the pictures tagged with #bobcatinabox on Instagram. Here is one with some fine temporary tattoos that the bot sent out…
Take a look at the third installment of awkward unboxings. What has been found in the neglected corners of the internet? I recognized the color pens, they have actually gotten quite good feedback.
Q: Is there any way to prevent ordering from a specific seller in the future, to exclude them, or to know who/where an item came from? I received an item today I really would have loved but the bottle broke in shipping. It was nail polish, so no chance to save it. It was not packaged well for a glass bottle.
If you have a minute, take a look at the awkward unboxing of lots of packages here. I do like the screaming mask and top hat in the background. We need more unboxings with top hats.
It is dangerous to go on vacation when the bot is sending you packages! Jessica is out with a new unboxing video….
I got a good and fairly specific question by email a few days ago that provides a bit of a glimpse into the bot’s inner workings with some colorful charts.
Q: I was just wondering when changes to budget and number of items go into effect. I’d assume that the budget changes when the next billing period hits. However I’d assume that keyword changes go into effect immediately (or daily), and I’m not sure when a change to the number of packages would happen (hopefully not until the budget change happens too). Just curious as to when all of these things happen.
A: All these changes get complicated surprisingly quickly.
Increases in your budget go into effect immediately, but you are only ever charged once per month. A pro-rated amount is added to the next billing cycle after you made the change. So if you signed up for $30/month and increased your budget to $40/month halfway through your first month the bot would tack on a $5 pro-rated charge to your next renewal.
Decreases in your total budget go into effect at the next renewal date. The idea here is that someone adding addresses or budget likely doesn’t want to wait to get packages. Usually decreases are cancellations, and in those cases the bot needs to spend the rest of the funds.
Who says the bot doesn’t send out cats in boxes! These stickers go out to anyone who selects keywords cute, animal, kawaii, Korea, 3d or sticky note. It is one of many cat-themed stationary products that I only recently discovered after the bot dug them up and started buying quite a few. As you can see from the below picture, the cat/box arrives flat and is quickly assembled into a little cat-shaped sticker dispenser!
