What is woot? Besides my favorite thing to check at midnight, woot.com is a great place to find gifts for everyone. Like a chipmunk I stock up for the winter (last year got my sister and dad Garmin GPS for $67 bucks…)
Normally there is one product listed on the website until they sell out for the day…unless it’s a woot -off and as soon as a product sells out another is listed – this goes on for 2 days…)
- Bag of Crap – random assortment of goodies (a.k.a. “Random Crap”) including anything from the dollar store to a big screen tv. Consistently people have gotten MP3 players (sometimes even 2 in the same bag…) Always bid on this!
- 2-for-Tuesday – since 2006, 2-pack items are offered every Tuesday.

Great Discussion Boards – every item has a discussion post. Follow the comments, get feedback, see
how much items are going for on other websites. Something a lot of people don’t realize or take the
time to do is check back after you’ve received your package. People will update comments with
informative reviews. Also a good way to find out what people got in their bags of crap.
Browser Alerts – during woot offs you want to know when an item sells out to check back. With almost
100k downloads, this Firefox add-on not only alerts you when items change but it also lets you know the
percentage of items left before it sells out.
