Greetings, Christian consumers….Today’s Hooty McDeal is nothing new, really. But if there’s anyone in the Western Hemisphere that isn’t already aware of Woot, consider this post more of a public service…
Woot is a very unique shopping site. Each day, a product is offered at a (usually) much lower price – sometimes the products are refurbished. The product is offered at some ridiculous price for 24 hours, or until it sells out – whichever comes first.
Sometimes, like today, you can find a “Woot-Off” – products are offered in rapid-fire succession – for an hour or two, or until they sell out. As of 10:55AM Pacific Time, the current item is a JBL On-Stage iPod dock for the socially and economically retarded price of ony $59.99. An hour ago, cordless Bluetooth headsets for the XBOX 360 were on-sale for $5.00 – yes, five bucks. But that was an hour ago – in Woot time, that’s like 1986.
The deals are humongous, the products are typically top-notch, and the writing and reviews are damn hilarious.
And for all you wine drinkers (see: alcoholics, Ally) check out Woot’s sister site: Woot Wine! For one week at a time, quartets of fine wines are offered at similarly ridiculous prices.
