    The title basically. I'm thinking of getting two boxes later this month but I haven't seen any site activity recently. The something tracker hasn't updated in about 7 weeks, and I'd hate to spend money on something I'd never get.

    The url is http://www.somethingstore.com/index.html in case anyone wants to know.

    Thanks for letting me know this existed! I'll probably order 'something' when it's confirmed that you're just being paranoid.

    Looks like I was being paranoid, they updated the tracker yesterday with everything from the past month.

    Sounds more like "let me throw away $10 store" to me. It would be like going into a real store and just piling random crap in your cart. No thanks. Especially when the "somethings" you may receive may not actually be worth $10.....like a paperclip, for example. I'd be pissed if I paid $10 and received that.

    Seems like a site that suckers idiots out of $10 to me.

    Well, on their website, they say:
    Who knows, maybe they really give cool things?
    But that'd be pretty strange, yep. So I guess you should better go and buy something you know for $10 (a book, for example).

    Little trinkets and stuff are given out sometimes. It's better not to chance it for me.

    I was curious about this, so I did a search On Youtube to see if anyone brought anything

    Here's a few results - make your own mind up about the store
    Personally - I wouldn't even consider buying anything I didn't know what it'll be

    Heh, all of the youtube vids just kinda looked a bit depressed after they opened their stuff.
    Interesting site though.

    yeah, you might as well just spend half the money and get it at dx instead of getting so depressed after opening up your "surprise"

    why would you pay $10 to get something completely random? if you don't like it you are stuck with it so it's a bit of a bummer lol
