Anyone here ever been there? Every night (midnight central time) they offer one item at a really low price (and low shipping). Sometimes its a really, really good deal and other nights it can be a clunker depending on your point of view. They keep selling it, until it sells out. Most times, they sell out by morning.

I check it out when I remember, but these days I'm rarely up at 1AM so it's hard.

Today they are selling the Altec Lansing inMotion iMplus iPod Audio System for $50 with $5 shipping. On Amazon it's $90. Needless to say it's sold out on Woot.

I've seen everything from computer accessories, stereos, flat screen TVs, etc. I grabbed one of those Altec Lansing Systems last night. I've seen it for $100 at Costco recently.

I've been using woot for a while. I wish they would release the products at different time. That midnight release is an advantage to the west coasters.

This was steal if you use ipod. Great site.

So what's the purpose of the site? Promotion of the for-sale item? Eliminating excess stock? I don't think I get it.

Get people to come to the website. Websites sometimes get $$$ when people click on their ads, its a smart promo

Hmm. Well it sounds like a good way to get cool cheap stuff. I may have to remember during the summer when I don't have 6am workouts to attend.

Do they ever announce beforehand what they'll be selling that day? Or do you just have to keep an eye on it and get lucky?

Luck of the draw. If they teased it, their hits would drop dramatically.

That was exactly what I was looking for. I didn't want to pony up $90 for it yet, but was going to eventually, but $49 was too good to pass up. This was my first purchase since I found out about the site last month. The last two items I wanted, I happened not to go to the site until it was too late.

I gotta feeling they probably buy overstocked items or items other companies are trying to discontinue at wholesale prices which is why they are able to sell them so cheap. I was pretty pissed I stayed up til 1am for a breadmaker last night.

BTW, anyone know what the prices of some of the old items were? I just want to get an idea, but the site only lists the past products and not the sale prices

The breadmaker did suck, unless you're looking for one.

They had a cordless Microsoft keyboard and mouse set for $22, a MS wireless mouse for a laptop for $9, set of 2 bluetooth headsets for $24. If you throw some other items out there, I may remember the price. They don't show the old prices on anything. They want you to tune in that day or else. Read through the forums there and you can see some discussing the old products and usually someone mentions the price.

The bag o' crap is three random items that they have left over

It can be ANYTHING

However, someone always gets a bigscreen TV, speaker system, etc etc

it always costs $3 and sells out quicker than any other item

No problem. The Woot Off is still going on as of this morning and can end at anytime. This is good for those back east that usually are not up late enough to catch a deal from them.

For all you Woot fans, they are in "Woot Off" mode. Meaning when one item sells out they move on to the next (Usually, its only 1 item per night). Usually the "bag of crap" shows up somewhere during the woot off.

1st item just sold out. (250 GB HD for $49.99)

That 2 way radio was only $15.

My only issue with the website is folks on the West Coast has a distinct advantage.

I wish I would have caught the HD though.

First time I have seen it offered in about 3 months. Generally, you really could get some junk or perhaps something worth a lot. Kind of like gambling. It cost $1 (you can buy up to "3 Craps" + $5 shipping).

Us west coasters have a distinct advantage as the new item goes up for sale at 10pm. I am usually online or when a show on TV ends at 10, I usually get up and check Woot, but I forgot for merely 3 minutes after 10 last night and lost out.

Some people did get a bunch of crap. I did see where one got a Romba. Not bad for $8.

I agree with Flanders, Woot has sucked for 5 months now. Either they are running out of crap or they can't get their hands on anything good or any company willing to put their product on there cheap.

The wine only took 29 minutes. There was definitely some slower items. Still no "Bag O' Crap" as of now.

I bough some wine off their winewoot site this week. Very good deal.

ok so the Bag O Crap finally shipped and was on a FedEx truck at 5:30am today to be delivered. I'm walkin the dog at 8:30 outside and the truck passes by and stops down the street at the map of the apartments on the property...then it drives off. I think it's no big deal, he'll just turn around and find the place right? Yeah ok. At 9:45 I left for work and still no FedEx truck. I get to work and get going on some work and at about 11 I check the package tracking and there it is...he left it at my door at 10:30. Go figure. And since I have work and 2 straight classes, I won't be home til about 10pm tonight :mad: oh the anxiety!

But I'll keep y'all posted on what I get as soon as I get home

(2)- USB Thumb Drive Locks

The problem may have been I ordered in the summer. Cross country trip in the back of a ups truck in the dead of summer does not make for good travel conditions. The price can not be beat.

Parker Station Quartet (twice-using two different accounts)-Very good value. Liked the first batch so much, ordered another a few days later on the 2nd account. They don't let you buy twice in the same week on one account though you could get up to 3 qty at first.

There was a 2000 Pinot, which I can't recall the name, which did suck. Should have known better not to roll the dice on a 2000 Pinor Noir. Just a little too old for a Pinot.

Good call on the Parker. But you know you are only about 800 miles away from Russian River, road trip? lol I am jealous of you West Coasters so many choices and easy to find wine. I am still tumbling around the North Fork region and Finger Lakes looking for values.

What's a Bag o Crap?

it's a package of random items, usually dollar store junk. They're $1 apiece and you get up to 3 and shipping is $5. They sell out REAL fast, usually under 3 minutes, because you never know what you'll get. A few people got 61" TVs in their BOCs, so it's definitely fun. I got a Bag O Crap last time and I got a Samsonite Camera Bag, a Saitek computer joystick, 2 thumb drive locks, and this skull that oozes brains when you squeeze it.

Some of the things people get are hilarious: home pregnancy tests, ugly clothes, broken items....it's always random

You'll probably get neither. When you say two, do you mean two orders of three or two total? Because you can get up to three craps, but not 2 bags. If you order 2 bags they will cancel both orders. Read the rules carefully

Every night Woot.com sells an item at 10pm (pst) until it sells out and that's it until 10pm (pst) the next day. In a Wootoff, they put one item up after another until each sells out. It usually lasts for a couple days and ends without warning. They usually do a wootoff once a month or so.

This time around you could only order one and they gave you three. I don't see why it isn't always like that, there is no point in ordering 1 besides that it is quicker and better to get 1 than 0. I'm not sure though, it seems like most people get 3.

Normally a new item goes up for sale at 1am Eastern time. However, about once a month the site goes into Wootoff mode, where they sell smaller quantities of an item until it sells out and then they move on to the next item. These usually last between 48-72 hours.

Normally, they do one product a night, but until they decide they keep putting one product up after another. Usually it lasts 24-48 hours and can end at any time without warning.

Normally, they do one product a night, but until they decide they keep putting one product up after another. Usually it lasts 24-48 hours and can end at any time without warning.

Bag of Crap tends to show up in Woot-offs also.

Yea, I did some reading, got myself a woot off tracker, seems we might be here a while with this basketball hoop. Figures, I normally work at 4 PM, the one day I have to be up early for work, they pull the woot off.

Ok, fellow wooters...

First, I have to thank you for showing me this site. I think I may be a regular wooter....

IF....
the woot item I ordered (refurb. iRiver 20gb mp3) during the last woot-off, July 19th, I believe ever comes in!!!!
I haven't heard anything from Woot regarding status, potential delays, or anything, actually.. Have any of you ever had to deal with this before?? Should I be concerned??

Thanks for any/all feedback.

Has it shipped? Go to your account, click on the order number, and it should tell you if it has been shipped/where it is. I've never had much of a delay put apparently their shipping can be slow at times.

My BOC came, it was pretty standard, a backpack, a key chain light, a patriotic mousepad, and a coin ship bank (without the stopper on the bottom).

No, still hasn't shipped, and there's a some people that show up on the item's blog that say they haven't heard anything and have bought other items after it that have come in already... I just wish they'd say something, good or bad... it's been 10 days already... I'm trying to be nice and patient, but both are starting to wear...
As my first woot item, this makes me leery about returning, which is why I turn to you.

Thanks anyways.

I think they can be a tad slow in shipping. If you look over in the Woot forums, I have read countless posts stating ""X" hasnt shipped yet. You might want to look at the thread for that particular item to see id others are waiting.

Yeah, I mentioned that I've been on the item's blog/forum (pretty much daily, actually) and no one seems to have received it. I was more or less asking you guys if this seems to be standard practice... From what I understand, this happens frequently, but not with every single item... I can wait... it's just annoying not to hear anything at all after a week and a half, while others have already received their items.

When the bar at the bottom is completely white, the item has sold out... you never know how many they have, but the bar tells you the status on how many are left...
the bouncing "I want one" is an indicator that the item is getting close to sold out.

So did I and was there right at 10pm (PST) sharp! Sold out in under a minute. Didn't enter my 3-digit security number on back of card fast enough I guess. Got the order in, but behind the others so all I got was an "if other get declined you'll get one" message.

It has a one-year warranty, which is what you get from most stores. Of course there's always the risk it doesn't work out of the box and you have to deal with the hassle of a warranty. However, if that's the case, it would be my first and last Sony, so its in their best interests to make sure they work fine.

I would safely say that I won't get a computer on woot unless the warranty comes from the manufacturer. Actually, I got the Kodak printer today, and that was a one-year Kodak warranty... I'm not too keen on the 90-day woot warranty, but i haven't had any problems with the refurb mp3 players that I've gotten from there (2).

Edit- order has processed.

A defective digital camera (that would've been sweet had it worked), a Samsonite camcorder bag, 2 xbox headsets for x-box live (not 360), and some plastic pots and pans... I think that covers it. The bag itself was worth the $8.
We sent the heatsets to my brother-in-law and gave the toy pots and pans to toys-4-tots. (it was just before xmas that this stuff came in).

the first thing I got was a 20gb mp3 player for $80.. then the 30gb zune was $100, so I got that and sold the 20gb one on ebay.
I always check too, but rarely buy. I never thought I'd see that printer, but I know my wife wants it, so I had to grab it up for half the wal-mart price.

it's usually the last item on a woot-off, and it's crazy-difficult to get one, you see it and have to click buy, or there's no chance... they usually sell at like 1 per .025 second or something ridiculous like that.

On April 1st, they had a woot off that was mostly just a battery (litterally). I got lucky and found a bag of crap, I ordered it, but it said I had already bought the item, which I had not. So they send out an email saying there was an error, and the 1st 500 people that ordered will get a BOC, free of charge. I was on of the 500, but expect nothing figuring they would just send me crap, because it was free. I got it today and I got

* A Pillow that connects to your iPod (the pillow is shaped and painted like an iPod) and plays music.

* A bag for carrying wine

* Wireless headphones valued around $180 on the company's site

*The Hulk VS Thor battle team up thing

All in all, not much stuff I can use, but I would say a very good haul.

I'm cursed with the BOC. Usually I'm at work when it happens on a Wootoff. Then there were times were I was right there at 12am CST and still didn't get it.

The one time I finally get through I was so excited, I forgot to click the "Buy 3" button so I got one "crap" and it was crap.
