Oh I didn't think they would give you a heads up on wootoff... what d'ya know... I used to predict the wootoff based on my dermatologist appoints... it was pretty accurate. I would come home from the derm with my hands all bandaged so I could barely use them and sure enough there would be a wootoff...

I get email newsletters from Woot. They are all pretty much the same, arrival time & directing to daily deals etc., but now & then...
When I see something unusual I google "woot-off", and check a few links there.

Any way to know how many until they sell out and switch? Or is that part of the chaos?

NO way to really tell since I have seen as little as one piece bought of an item and that woot ended, and seen it drag for over hour since that lot had ton of items to sale off.

That's part of the chaos. But it seems the more expensive the item is, the fewer they will have.

I didn't read through all of the pages, but in case some people do not know, Woot is a division or subsidiary of Amazon.com.

I really still dont understand the whole WooT! concept; can someone break it down for me? They offer random items at super low prices for like a tiny time period until it sells out? And what's the whole Bag of Crap thing about???!!!

Woot normally offers one item everyday at a discounted price until they either sell out or the next day begins.

During a woot they offer multiple items throughout the day. The item will only stay up until it is sold out. Once it is sold out a new item appears.

A bag of crap is exactly what it implies.
You get at least:

One Bag
3 Items/Crap

Cost 8.00 Shipped.

I have gotten 10 bags in one BOC before and there are times when I just get my one bag and three crappy things. I had like 20 2010 calendars in one BOC before. Another time I got an awesome MP3 player. It is 100% random. It is also really hard to get one but that is the thrill of it all!

Yep that's is it. Typically if u hang out long enought you will see each woot off sales just about the same items each month. Now on to the bag of crap it is just as great as it sounds. I been trying for about a year and I seem to miss it each time since the page it swamped as soon as it shows up. The stuff in the boc is worth more then 5 price and some people get some really nice stuff like flash cards. However I also see a lot of crap like nonworking flashlights in bags as welll.


Also if u go to main woot page they have a video of the jenneins guy that won a lot of money on jeopardy, opening a bag of crap. I would have linked to it but on my phone to hard to cut and paste links.

This woot off so far has been uneventful. I haven't seen one thing I want to buy and I called out of work sick today for this. Uggh!!! I could have saved it for a day of shopping at the mall.
