The last time they had this, it was a 3rd party battery and wall charger. Both have held up for quite some time, and they were definitely worth the $6.

That's what I received last time.

I'm expecting a faceplate, to be honest. But just to be clear, is everyone shipped the same item? Or are they different?

Pretty sure it's the same item. Last time, I think everyone in the thread here got the battery and charger. Doubt it will be anything worth less than the $6 S/H. Whenever they have mystery stuff, it's worth something, so it likely won't be cheap stuff like a cable or faceplate.

It wouldn't be crazy to expect a headset, or a messenger kit.

Last time people got third party battery/charger/ether net cable/ faceplate. A few did get headset but they were unofficial.

Just about everyone in the CAG thread reported the battery/charter/USB cable. No one I remember said they got an ethernet cable or faceplate. Here's the thread, starting on page 6 when the reports started rolling in:

NM faceplate and ethernet cable were from a different mystery box offer

ive had good experiences with thingfling, i bought one of there 25 dollar mystery boxes, got a bunch of stuff all worth well over 100 bucks, ipod speakers, bunch of cds, a few multitools, etc stuff like that, i would be surprised if they threw in faceplates, expect aftermarket headset/controllers/chargers

BTW anyone who is into the Deal a Day websites, theres a woot off going on woot.com

Oh, actually, it seems like you don't have to hold on to the code. If you go to the bottom where it says "My Flings" it'll display the coupon and the code for you.

For some reason, I've got two of the same coupons with different codes, though... They both expire March 31st, have a $10 minimum purchase, and take $3 off. I wonder if they can be stacked? :P

EDIT: I refreshed the page, and now it's showing up as $4 for shipping. Is it the same for anyone else? I'm about to feel real shafted.

Don't feel shafted. Your shipping decreases as your orders increase, until you get free shipping with your third order. That's the way it works.

1st order - 6$

Oh, cool. For orders in general, or just the ones for that day?

I can't get the site to let me make more than one order ... when I click "Fling Me One" following the first order, it does nothing.

Last time they did this it was a 3rd-party play n charge kit with battery pack.

It's probably useful...but I haven't opened it yet. For what it is, it's a great deal for $6.

Better be real heavy to cost $6 in S/H.

They don't WANT people to order more than one. Keep in mind the item itself is completely free- you're only paying for S/H. And with the whole more items = less shipping costs thing, if you were able to get more than three, you could get as many as you wanted for free. I'd imagine that's why they're only allowing one per account.
