What is WOOT and What's a WOOT-OFF?
Monday, June 22, 2009
www.woot.com sells one item a day at a discounted price until that item sells out. They don't list an item for sale again until 12:00 AM the next day. Shipping is only $5, no matter what the item or how many you buy. About once a month they have a "woot-off" where they sell things even cheaper and they list new things one after another until they are done selling everything. This can last a day or two. During every "woot-off" they list a "bag of crap".
I thought this was a joke at first, but I have discovered that the "bag of crap" is highly coveted among wooters. The "bag of crap" is a bunch of random things that they decide to send you. It can be 100 Star Trek bobble heads, some ram, hard drives, T-shirts, or other miscelanious items. Once someone actually got a car and a few people have gotten TVs.
Click Here to see what some people have gotten. I try every "woot-off" to get a bag of crap, but am never fast enough. You have to keep checking their site and refreshing to see what the next item is.
So happy Woot Off and let me know if you are lucky enough to get a "bag of crap".
