It's a Woot Off!

I was told about this website a while back and it is pretty cool. Woot.com is an online store which sells one random item for a 24 hour time period or until the item is completely sold out.  Once the item has been sold out or the time expires you can no longer buy that item from Woot.com. Most of the items are pretty cool or useful and they are all at reasonable prices.  Checking the site once turns into checking the site twice, then checking the site every day.  On Tuesdays Woot.com has a special 2 for 1 item which is usually a great buy but I must admit I have yet to buy from Woot.com on a Tuesday.  Woot.com is relatively easy to use.  All you have to do is register your info with them and you're good to go.  Shipping is always $5 for every item so no need to be worried about shipping costs.  Woot.com also has other sites that feature shirts at shirt.woot, kids stuff at kids.woot, and wine at wine.woot.

Woot.com has been such a success that Yahoo wanted to get involved.  Woot decided to "sellout to the man" and started a Woot site with Yahoo called Sellout Woot. I highly recommend you check out Woot.com if you're looking for cool items at cheap prices.

Side Note:  If you go to Woot.com and you see 2 flashing siren lights, that means there is a "Woot Off" going on.  A Woot Off is when Woot.com sells items until they sell out but immediately put a new item on the site rather than waiting until 11:59 PM CST to put a new item up. Also if you happen to see the Woot Item as a brown paper bag, this means that you are able to buy a grab bag that has a random item in it.  It could be anything from a dirty sock to an iPod but you'll never know what it is until you get it in the mail.

Great review about a site I had never heard of! Definitely worth checking into at least once a day. Enjoying your reviews Ryan. Always good to have another baseball fan on the site. I hope the Dodgers win for Joe Torre's sake. He is a class act all the way. But as for Manny..........

Woot has a single item each day.  It sells it until it sells out.. and usually at a price well below what you can find elsewhere.    However, some days, there are woot-offs, where they sell a single item until it sells out, then they replace it with another item.  This can go on for at least 24 hours.  I've seen it last for days on end.    The best part of Woot is that on some lucky days, they sell a BOC (bag of crap) for $1.00.  It could …

Do you Woot!?  Woot.com is an online store and community that focuses on selling cool stuff cheap.  Woot sells one item per day until it is sold out or until 11:59pm central time, whichever is sooner.  Think of it as a highly-selective QVC.  In truth, most of the items you may not need - at least I don't - but it's still fun to see the bargains that can be found.

About this website

Wiki

Woot! is a website that offers a deal per day on an item via its website.  http://www.woot.com/


Woot.com is an online store and community that focuses on selling cool stuff cheap. It started as an employee-store slash market-testing type of place for an electronics distributor, but it's taken on a life of its own. Woot sells one item per day until it is sold out or until 11:59pm central time when it is replaced (see next entry for details). However, each item that they sell is in stock and typically ships within 2-3 business days. Woot offers a new item every single day. The details: a new product is released every morning at 12am central time, seven days a week.
