Hmm, it came with the entire top pushed in and wrapped in clear packing tape and a note from the Post Office swearing they got it that way. Didn’t have time to open it and see if the contents look like they were packed that way or not. I’ll be home in about three hours and will update.
@mossygreen It looks good, it was a West Bend Ice Cream Machine box, and contained what appears to probably be all the parts of a West Bend Ice Cream Machine (no instructions), and also an Irk bag, a single microfiber cloth, the phone 5 piece lens kit which seems to only have spaces for four lenses, an Incipio qi charging base and a… thing? I don’t know what it is. I guess it’s some kind of gps tracker for kids from i Luv Wireless?
Meh tried to warn me, but I wouldn’t listen. The Cobaltx thing at bottom is half of car seat back tablet holder. Don’t know what happened to other half. Box was beaten up pretty bad. Tape job not very secure.
Not able to post pics right now, but I got the orange bag, a set of travel laundry bags, some essential oils, an openbox vivid globe speaker (no dock!), and a set of Secret Collagen Non-Surgical Solution products. I’m quite relieved it was not surgical solution products!
@Mpulse7 One or two of the ones I’ve won a long time ago were decent, with some electronics inside (toothbrush, bulletcam, etc).
Recent ones were absolutely horrible. The last two that I got were along the likes of (1) two very crappy wallet/purse combos, a pack of sticker wall decals, and a pair of socks, and (2) a cheap cup, a couple of useless USB-B cables, and some date rape test kits.
I’ve never gotten a truly top-tier box, and I’ve managed to pick up every single one from the past dozen or so. I don’t really regret it because they’re only five bucks each. Also, even the really crappy ones here are still better than any BoC I’ve gotten (which is also more expensivce at ten dollars per).
Already posted in the actual IRK topic for my sale but:
Two microfiber cleanup towels
ProNoir depilator (face hair removing tool)
A box / bottle of Sericin+ Reviving Eye Serum
A King size brown and very soft microfiber blanket which is now our couch cover.
Mediocre, I really don’t know how you did it. USPS has a key to open the entire front panel, so they can deliver mail to the entire complex at once. However, the package lockers have doors that are smaller than the interior of the locker. I’m not sure how you convinced the postal worker to make the delivery extra irksome, but I had to cut open the box inside the locker just to extract the contents:
2 very dented cookwares with (no longer) matching lids
2 Bluetooth headphones. One marked defective!
1 lovely irk bag (with POCKETS? such decadence)
1 Guardians of the Galaxy projector pen
So apparently our Usps was still delivering packages today. Got a smaller box that was a return of 4 pack copper cook pans, small skillet scratched up pretty bad. Otherwise it was all there.
Then a 3,000mah battery pack/phone holder. Also 2 blue and 2 white croc clawz paint markers. Toss in the irk bag and we got our $5 worth it seems. Gotta find someone that could use a 3 pack of copper pans.
No regret here!
Fidget spinner (just gave away 160 of these)
Light up dog collar which matches the leash I have.
5 piece lens kit, the box is crushed but contents fine.
IRK bag with pockets
Henckels 12 piece cutlery set which frankly terrifies me. I’m sure the regret will come when I use them since good knives always seem to demand a blood sacrifice from me on first use.
@callow that’s a nice knife set. I got one in an IRK before. It was a little beat up and there were knives just flopping around in the box, but still a good set. Hope you can satisfy the blood sacrifice with just a minor nick.
1 kids sectional chair thingy
(i refuse to say lovesac because that sounds dirty as fuck)
orange IRK bag
sonicare toothbrush with charger, 1 head and some kind of tongue scraper thingy
1 nine yr old lab/border collie mix dog. he was very calm having been shipped from TX.
Orange IRK bag (Works!)
Aquaponic Black Series power toothbrush (All brush-heads sealed in plastic!)
Dirty Clawz clogs (Men’s size eight)
a USB Power Bank/Car jumpstarter (The power bank works…who knows if it will actually start a car)
A random black lawn stake
6 pieces of track from an electric car set
meh. Not worth a picture, big nice hefty box, opened box west bend soft serve machine and irk bag. Soft serve machine has a two star rating on amazon and is discontinued. This one was a big tease with the big fairly weighty box
IRK sachet. - Orange
LG Tone+ Bluetooth headset. Also Orange. Seems to work!
King bamboo sheet set. Dark gray.
Sericin+ reviving eye cream with complimentary eye cream shovel
Brilliance New York facial serum - broken pump.
The pup destroyed the wife’s headphones. So timing is good. And soon my skin will be supple.
The mailman knocked on the window and I almost got mad since I just got the baby to sleep BUT he brought my IRK! He was also just trying to warn me that the box was heavy - so I couldn’t stay mad (especially since baby stayed asleep)
Gabba Goods pink fabric bluetooth speaker and power bank (perfect to hang on the stroller and play “Africa” on repeat for the baby - it is the ONLY thing that calms her down)
Orange IRK bag
Dickies Silver Series work socks
GoTrax Hoverfly Eco - appears to be new. I am so tempted to get on this thing, but don’t want to kill myself either…
@clonetek mine was basically the same minus one of the mPULSE buds and switch one of the wireless LG’s for wireless Samsung. All used, none work. The speaker won’t charge but will work while plugged in.
@Ignorant There is a difference between only getting literal trash and a mix of trash and random junk. I don’t recall as much non-working items all in one irk box in the past. Usually people got at least one thing that was working/non-broken even if it wasn’t something they wanted.
@Ignorant I have had individually broken things but never everything in the entire box. Also had some “dollar tree” style boxes. I did get lucky twice though and got something refurbished that I would actually use.
Look! Look! Look! It’s purple! And it seems to work.
There’s some other cool stuff, too.
So I also got a power bank that’s kinda working, and a QI wireless charging base. I don’t know if that works because I have no devices that charge wirelessly.
And peeking out from the very back of the photo is a food saver. It came with a roll of plastic AND the instruction manual, which I read. Well, I’m guessing someone returned this as non-working, but after following the instructions, (clearing my throat), it works!
Finally as a bonus, was a couple of Clawz pens.
What can I say? Meh, you screwed up again. I’m happy with my I.R.K. (and my purple). Better luck next time.
Can’t remember how to post pictures! This is only my second irk, maybe 3rd.
1 orange irk bag with pockets!
1 orange set of LG blue tooth headphones not marked
1 set of make up brushes
1 Yeti Stop It leak thingy marked with an rma number but 2 were returned and the one I got is still packaged!
1 biaggi zipsak folding luggage! As seen on Shark Tank! This thing is very cool! If I figure out how to post pictures again, I’ll be posting it!
@aleohansen i almost guarantee you that there is random stuff stuck in the box, like an irk bag and some clawz coloring markers. But you should sell it sealed and just see what the buyer finds in there and says in your Ebay feedback.
As we all know, when an IRK appears, you go into clicking mode without thinking.
My IRK got delivered to a different address. Seeing as how most of the posts were similar and all crap headphones, I told them to open it up.
1 x IRK bag.
2 x (used) mPULSE headphones.
2 x (no comment on used status, which makes me think the aforementioned are nasty.) LG Tone sci-fi looking slave collar “wireless” wired things.
1 x mPulse Bluetooth Speaker/Speakerphone
Much regret that this seems to be a dump of crappy music products they couldn’t sell versus a spattering of a lot of random shit they couldn’t sell.
(Still pretty excited, and will forever buy an IRK if the powers that be allow.)
1 orange irk bag
10 piece pot and pan sent. All bent badly. Kept the lids. Threw away pans.
Used bluetooth headphones that were sticky and smelled like a middle school locker room.
Vitamin C spray.
Phone lens kit.
I kept the lids, glasses camera, and irk bag. For the first time ever i didn’t put the box in my irk fuku boc closet.
IRK cake yesterday but couldn’t open it until today. Here we go!
-king microfiber sheets (time for a king bed?)
-Lamzac fatboy chair (daughter super excited)
-3 (!!!) piece lens kit; I must not be as special as the 5-piece recipients
-3 Monster microfiber towels
-orange IRK bag
Not a bad haul of seemingly new merch. Thanks, meh!!
@Barney@sammydog01 Will do. It’ll be a few months before we take it for a test drive (brr!). I’ve seen others use them and think the Amazon reviews are apt. From what I’ve seen from others using it, it’s also not the easiest to fill — you really need a good breeze.
This is the first time I’ve felt truly Meh about my I.R.K. It consists of a single Lovesac Kid’s Sactional seat, and the obligatory I.R.K. bag. The variety of random crap is usually the most entertaining part, but this time I’m simply Meh-ed out.
/giphy Not Entertained
Starting to see a pattern in my IRKs - the last three, including this one have been returns that the shipping label was literally slapped on and sent to yours truly… The last two didnt work. One was a busted receiver, the other was so meh, I cant even recall what it was… hopefully this one will work, although I have some doubts. Also received the orange IRK bag, and Jons wireless Apple mouse - Jon, I have your mouse, will it juice? -
Something went terribly wrong! My only regret is that I couldn’t buy two:
violife slim sonic “the stylish toothbrush” with battery and extra brush head, in beat up packaging but clearly new and works well, $24 and four stars at Amazon. Will use for travel.
Brilliance New York Hair Couture Hairodynamics Pro
Dryer 3400, with attachment, seems new and works well. $26 at Amazon, with three reviews, a five-star (“strong”), a four-star (“pretty strong”), and a one-star (“weak”). My wife will be the judge.
PALM/NRG Creative Technology ABS Training Revolution. On company website for $599. Similar on Amazon for $35. Can’t believe that the FDA let’s them sell this crap. Headed to the trash bin.
Factory sealed Model Technics Laser Cut 3D Model Zero Fighter, ages 14+. Similar for $8 on Amazon. Will give it to 14 y.o.
5-Piece smartphone lens kit, factory sealed with - wait for it - five lenses. MSRP $49.99, $24 at Amazon. Former meh offer with lots of buyers but forget the price. Not really something I’m likely to use.
Ideation Bluetooth Solid Ear Pods , a one-star item at a ridiculously high price at Amazon; haven’t bothered to open box.
xtreme True Wireless Stereo Air Buds with charger. Appear to be new in plastic case. $14 at Wal-Mart. A former Morning Save item.
I am completely un-disappointed in my IRK. What a strange feeling. I got:
1 IRK bag
1 Fuko bag
1 frying pan (slightly dented) with lid (still fits)
3 pair of Dickies work socks
4-piece set of Adventure Time pint glasses!
Quality over quantity this time… I’m happy!
My second ever IRK came with much less regret than my first. I got:
5 piece lens set
3 pack of Dickies work socks
TrackR bluetooth phone finding thingy
A lovely orange IRK bag
And a Deebot robot vacuum, with manual and what looks like all the needed parts. Still haven’t tested it, but there’s pet hair in the dirt compartment, so it at least must have worked at some point.
Definitely regrettable. 1) Pink ‘Cattitude’ light up backpack. Not my style, but I’ll be donating that to a foster kid organization, so not too bad. 2) 21 led 3 panel make-up mirror. I got this in my last IRK too. I guess I could use it when I trim my beard? Or make one of those optical illusion mirror boxes? 3) Sharper Image Wireless TV headphones. The box was open and in rough shape, but everything was there. They work. However they are the second worst headphones I’ve ever tried to use, after the earbuds I got at the dollar store a while back. Garage sale for sure. 4)orange IRK bag. I really should start taking these with me when I go shopping… And that’s it. Meh.
1 returned coffee brewer (carafe handle broken off)
1 SimpliSafe base station
1 SimpliSafe wireless keypad
1 SimpliSafe keychain remote
1 12v power supply for something not included in the box.
The only potentially-useful item here is that coffee brewer. This is an item we considered buying when Meh offered it, so if we get a working brewer out of this deal I’ll be thrilled. If not, then Irk will have hit me with additional regret by dangling the anticipation of good coffee in front of me before smashing those dreams. I’m attempting to repair the carafe handle using a block of wood and copious amounts of superglue, so we’ll find out if the brewer works once the glue sets.
Getting only part of a SimpliSafe system isn’t actually useful at all; without any door or window sensors the system can’t really do anything. Oddly enough, though, it is the exact system that my in-laws use, so maybe they’ll have a use for some spare parts?
The power supply is a rather random add-in. If any of y’all received some 12v gizmo without its power supply, sorry, looks like it fell into my box instead
Here is a picture of the Irk! The headphones work and appear new, make up brushes can be very expensive and I can use my Yeti cup again!
I read the reviews on the luggage and the main complaint was it is awkward to wheel around the airport or if not packed correctly it’s tippy…others loved theirs so if it isn’t easy at the airport, it’ll be for camping! Win win!
-Ideation Bluetooth ear buds
-Wireless Charging pad
-Broken Brugi woman’s watch
-An off brand fitness tracker
-Ninja Intelli-Sense Kitchen System (blender that comes with food processor and smoothie thing)
-Orange IRK bag
The blender works perfectly and came with all the associated attachments and packaging stickers still on it. Wife and I are thrilled! No regret here!
What’s going on here. Does meh have something to say about my physical health. No worries, I’m actually ramping up my workout and this thing makes my abs quiver. Brand new Body Coaster for personal growth. And a bag and upside down umbrella. Well done sirs!
My box finally got released from purgatory. It sat at one of the hubs from Saturday until today. It originally was supposed to be delivered Saturday but my mailman decided to take it back to the hub for whatever reason. I was thinking I would have to go in and complain tomorrow but all of a sudden it showed up and was waiting for me today.
Meh must think I have a lot of ear holes. 4 pairs of headphones and a portable speaker. Also a nice orange bag.
I wasn’t too hopeful since there was return stickers on a few items.
The mpulse headphones just said used, can’t be resold. They are corded headphones and when I cut the tape open I was greeted by earwax on one of the ear pieces. Gross. I guess it could be cleaned but I didn’t even look at them any further since I had more options to get through. Return sticker was dated 2015 so that wax has been sitting around a while.
A pair of LG Tone Pros. Bluetooth neckband headphones. They looked new and they work but the volume is pretty low and they don’t sound great. I wasn’t feeling too hopeful at this point. This is probably something I’ll throw in my locker at work as a backup. Can be found new for around $30. They cost more in 2016 when they were manufactured.
Two sets of Samsung Level U Pro Bluetooth neckband headphones. One of the boxes said the charging cover won’t stay shut. Turns out, they both work and sound pretty damn good! They looked brand new in the box with all the little plastic covers still stuck on the headphones. The one box was missing the charger and extra ear pieces. Reviews said they start to break after several months so I’m glad to have two sets because they are the best sounding Bluetooth options I own now. The broken charging door isn’t even that big of a deal on the one. Found them new for sale from anywhere around $25-80. Manufactured in 2016 and the one was returned in 2017. Used to retail for $100.
And if it wasn’t enough to have the four sets of headphones to shove in my ears, I got an mPulse Go Bluetooth speaker. The accessories were floating loose in the main box. It didn’t look like this thing was going to work but after letting it charge for several hours I finally got it to turn on. It’s loud, it sounds nice. Used to retail for $79.
Overall my ears are pretty pleased! Over $300 retail worth of stuff.
My IRK left Atlanta last Friday the 8th. Today is Friday the 15th. Usually when a package leaves Atlanta it is on my porch in Pensacola, FL. the next day. I got the wife a set of sheets that also left Atlanta the 8th and they have yet to show up. @snapster@dave We are begging you to please drop this NEWGISTICS outfit. In today’s age of porch pirates keeping tracking info up to date is very important to us. So is actual delivery of our purchases in a reasonable and timely manner.
Not worthy of a photo.
1 x 12x telephoto phone lens
1 wine bottle bag
1 blue washcloth
1 West Bend soft-serve Ice cream maker
(I work 10 miles from West Bend, WI (Gee, thanks).)
i guess I did get at least $5 worth of crap
@tinamarie1974 My IRK was shipped in the original product box, without internal structural support. (Is there suddenly a shortage of Texas air.) And anyways, I already own a Cuisinart Ice Cream maker. I haven’t used it in 4 years.
I got a fine IRK.
The TrackeR thing in pink
Monster screen cleaner
HP USB2 cable (Monster branded, USB A to B, for external drives & printers)
Orange Meh bag
Bag of 11’’ cable ties (Seemingly from Harbor Freight- hope someone dug these out from a gigantic pile of things they’ve collected from the store)
Pic (w/o TrackeR shown)
an ultimate spin daily facial cleanser, (new, unopened)
a sharper image massaging neck wrap, (new, unopened)
a purple makeup bag (i think), (looks mostly new)
a white RFID protecting wallet/clutch with built in charger (looks new)
a 3-1 hair dryer/brush (looks returned, but inside still in plastic)
and of course, an orange IRK bag!!
Lot of stuff for the ladies in here, but the good news is most of it looks new, soooo… cheap secret santa gifts for the girls at work!!! thanks Meh!!!
I waited a couple of days to open mine. It was pretty heavy! Inside:
Cozy Comfy Weighted Blanket - at 12 pounds, this was most of the package weight. Not sure if new or a return, but looks new. Can’t look at that image without thinking of the creepy one when they sell these!
Wonder Woman pen with flashlight. Works. Sealed package.
mPULSE earphones with orange and green cords. Says “Opened” so I assume not clean, but look decent. Other size pieces included.
LG Tone Pro headset. Also an obvious return. Some crud on the earpieces, but otherwise decent. No return sticker, but everything there and charging light works so far.
Samsung LEVEL wireless headphones. Decent shape, but return sticker says “Bluetooth keeps disconnecting, even during a phone call” so we shall see.
Orange IRK bag. Have this color from a previous IRK.
Weighted blanket goes for about $40 on epay.
WW pen probably $3
mPULSE earphones maybe $24 new
LG Tone Pro - Orig. $70 - on clearance at BB for $40
Samsung LEVEL - $?? Does have aptX, so maybe worth getting new earpieces if they work.
IRK bag - priceless
For sure better than $5 worth of stuff. The headphones look like they came from one of those places that sell random returns.
@500vdc I got all the same headphones plus an extra Samsung. The Levels sound great. Been using them for a few days and the Bluetooth cuts out occasionally when my phone is in my pocket and I bend. I’m not sure if that’s more a phone issue or a headphone issue. All the Bluetooth headphones I have do the same thing with three different phones. The Levels are the least glitchy.
I don’t know man! It’s tough to regret something that keeps getting better. I feel like I have peaked though so next time is bound to be an instant IRK. Although I am enjoying the kitchen appliances from these last 2.
Sorry about the delay, busy weekend before traveling.
Regretful contents noted below.
1 - Sonicare toothbrush out of a box - Works - I know because I used the provided heads to brush my teeth this weekend!
1 - Weird vibrating hair brush that also has rounded bumps on one side to also message other areas of the body
1 - pair of wireless buds in a slightly smooshed box. Seem ok though.
1 - Nespresso with a milk frother. Frother works so I assumed the nespresso does as well. Need to find some pods to test it. It does have a damaged side container that is used for garbage pods…hoping that is why this thing was tossed into an oversized box with no support so it just rattled around.
1 - sexy orange slightly earth friend bag.
1 - creepy reflection of me and a dog if you look close enough!
So mine showed no activity for like 8 days but finally tracking updated last night that it was going to be delivered today. I got a huge box with not alot in it. ( Not in a bad way) got a sericin eye lift creme retails for 1,295.00 , wahl ceramic and gel pack 14.95 , 1irk bag priceless and the biggest piece of the delivery was a lone star chef take-a-wok portable gas cooker 229.99 . So I def scored as soon as my little guy wakes up ( out of school sick) I’ll put grill together and see if everything is there ,it looks it. But I’m shocked at the cost of the eye lifting creme. The price alone made my eyes lift so it def works. Who else got the eye creme and what did u do with it ? At that price is it resale worthy
Mine was full of headsets of varying degrees of stickiness and limited functionality. Some kind of weird purple quilted bag and my irk bag. There was a small bluetooth speaker that one of the kids took off with.
flimsy-slate-cricket arrived last week, but I saved it to open with family.
One of those salad bowls that freezes to take to work, which promptly broke.
Nice little saucepan with lid.
Awesome package of Dickies.
(The socks - very nice, perfect for my son).
Gigantic orange IRK bag.
I’m ever so grateful for this one, it is special and I love it!
Whelp, finally got some truly regrettable shit this time around—you’re welcome for taking this useless junk to the e-waste dump:
• One (1) LG Tone Pro wireless headphones (the kind douchey finance bros used to wear in 2012); dead on arrival
• One (1) Samsung Level U Pro wireless headphones (the kind douchey finance bros used to wear in 2015); dead on arrival
• Two (2) motorola H730 earpieces (the kind self-important types used to wear in 2010) with the return labels to PC Richard & Sons; dead on arrival one leaking a nasty brown liquid
• Two (2) mPULSE ear buds; working !! (albeit one was filthy and therefore given to a colleague after an alcohol swabbing)
• One (1) Zen 5-in-1 Travel Pro Speaker / Speakerphone with BONUS! Power Bank; working !! (the 5-in-1 is misleading as i believe the 2 wriststraps counted towards the ‘5’)
• One (1) IRK bag in orange; working !!
• (the pumpkin and puzzle were not included)
