I had a friend go woot in an IM message today, and my response was something like. Yes, haven’t been to woot.com for a while, which lead to statement “I didn’t know there was a site”.
Well yes folks, there is a www.woot.com, and it’s way cool. Of course you can go there, and unless you read more then the first page you might wonder what all the fuss is about. I’ve taken the liberty of stealing some content from they FAQ.
What is Woot?
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.
I see only one item, do you sell anything else?
No. We sell 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 we sell is in stock and typically ships within 2-3 business days.
What is the schedule for new items?
The short answer: we offer a new item every single day. The details: a new product is released every morning at 12am central time, seven days a week.
