It's an interesting concept. Sell 1 item a day at a low price and only that 1 item. If it sells out in 2 hours, then you have to wait until the next day for the next "deal."
I personally have not taken the time yet to dig into all the details of the site so I honestly know little. So I'm just wondering if any of you have had an experience with them?
BTW, be prepared for "lame" deals sometimes, such as today's ear warmers!

One thing to look out for is what they call Woot Offs were they basically sell an unlimited number of items for a day or two. Basically you'll get better info by reading the FAQ of the site but they'll have like 100 TV's and when those 100 sell then they move on to the next item and so on until the day is over. They typically go through about 70+ items in a woot off so its good to set your browser to autorefresh every 15 seconds when one comes around to ensure you don't miss a product because once it sells out you won't get a second chance.
Another thing is called a Bag of Crap which is a mystery bag that can be filled with crap items or (as happened in the past) be filled with expensive items such as TV's and Nintendo Wiis or computers. The Bag of Crap is always just 10 bucks (i believe that was the price) so even if you get a new 50 inch TV it only cost you 10 bucks....everybody tries to get the BOC, i've been trying for about a year now and i am still too slow on the trigger to grab it. Also a plus of this site is all shipping is 5 dollars so whether the item is a pencil or a 200 pound TV it is only 5 dollars.
I love woot.

Glad to hear you've had positive experiences with them. I have read some of their FAQ and I kind of like the "smart ass" and off the wall comments they've made on the site. Fits my personality pretty well.
Now I just have to wait for something that I want to go up on the site, or something I know we can sell in the shop.

Oh well, it's still fun to check out the deals and some of them do look pretty good. I'm a little upset that I missed out on the Pioneer DVD system, oh well I didn't have the money anyways. The Soyo 22" LCD's have an excellent price but I'm not too sure of those LCD's. We bought two for a customer a couple of months ago and have had to already send one in for repair!!

I haven't bought anything yet. Seems they just don't wanna hook me up??!! However I was close to getting the $38 digital camera.
Had the boss been in, he would have picked up 3 of those 22" LCD's I mentioned in my earlier post. He was also a little upset that we missed the popcorn maker, he thought that would be pretty cool for home.
Today has really been crazy, I like this "woot off"!!! I was at my laptop most of the day hitting the refresh button (somehow I still managed to get some work done) and now at my desktop doing the same!! You get the crazy adrenaline rush like you get when you bid on an ebay item with 20 seconds left....but all day!!! I keep hoping they put something up that I wanna buy and I get to it quick enough!!
Luckily those stupid pliers sold out pretty quickly, now get rid of that damn vacuum and hook me up!!!

Kinda sucks though cause I still want more!! Damn, this is like digital cocaine!!!
Anyways, I couldn't pass up the wireless gamepad. I bought 3 and only paid $20 after shipping, $20 was the lowest price I could find (that doesn't include shipping) for just 1 of these!!!
I'm not a gamer, but I have 3 boys so I'm sure they will enjoy them. I will however have to keep one for myself!!!!

It's had my head spinning these past 2 days!! Luckily I am BROKE right now or I would be now!
Kinda ticks me off that I've missed out on a few good deals that I really would have like to have gotten, but oh well......maybe I'll catch it on the next "woot off"??!!!!

This time I have money!! Man this could be a bad day if they put some good stuff up. I have money on my CC but need it for other stuff, however I can't pass up a good deal!!

I bought 3 Stewie (from Family Guy) USB things. He's supposed to move a little, talk, and just annoy you. It looks kinda cool?
