Woot is an online store that focuses on selling cool stuff cheap. The unique feature is that they sell only one item per day until it is sold out or until the day is over when it is replaced.
A new product is released every morning at 12am central time, seven days a week. If a product sells out during its run, a new item will not appear until the next release time. You will know if a product is sold out, because the main page says “SOLD OUT” instead of “I want one”.
You might spot some bizarre things beside this. If you see the “I Want One” button bouncing around, it means act fast as a sellout is approaching! If orange flashing lights are on the main page, you just found a Woot-Off, where a new product is launched immediately after the sellout of the previous deal. There is a half-Woot-life of 12 hours maximum on any product within a Woot-Off that does not sell out.
You could also be lucky to spot a weird-looking pope hat, that is a Launch Event indicator. When you see it next to a Woot item, that item is available on Woot and nowhere else! It could be that you’re looking at the item’s initial market launch or it could be a special sneak preview just for Wooters.
Each item they sell is in stock and typically ships within 2-3 business days. If you missed yesterday’s item, its over and they allow no backorders. If revisiting this site is difficult for you, then get the Woot feed and never miss a cheap deal again. Remember they do not ship outside of the United States.
