I can't believe all the discussion about value. CVS online has the large kits at $12.99 each and the "to go" kits at $1.49. You are getting two of each. Let me get my calculator out....

That's a $28.96 value. Even if you only buy ONE set, you are saving $17.97 (28.96 - $10.99). If you buy two sets, you will save $40.94 ($57.92 - $16.98) Might as well continue all the way. If you buy three sets, you will save $63.91 ($86.88 - $22.97)

Um, at that savings just toss the two little single serve neosporins that are almost out of code (they only do one bandaid each anyway) and buy a jumbo tube two - pack at BJ's (or Sam's club, depending on where you are)!

Phew..... now off to buy for myself...

You appear to imply that those of us who had time to check woot between 6AM and 11:50PM don't work. I thought my work weeks were long, at 70 hours (no ability to check the internet except on a potty break) plus an additional 72 hours home call (internet access but also 2 under 2), but it sounds like you have things much worse - my sympathies. Sounds like the woot-off would have lifted your spirits in the midst of a difficult time; I'm sorry that you missed it. I'm sure woot will endeavor to avoid having their servers break down again, so hopefully you'll catch the next one.

(Although I confess that I'm temporarily jealous that missing a woot-off is a big enough deal in your life to inspire the passion in your initial post. I've spent the past year trying to keep myself and the girls alive after my husband attempted to murder me. Woot-offs are a nice diversion if I can catch them, but things that "suck" are on the level of the baby's recent surgery to remove a tumor that was thankfully benign. We all have our burdens to carry, though, and it sounds like your work life is onerous. Hope things improve for you soon!)

Great kit. If you want to add a few more items for camping or the car, I would recommend a bottle of water or saline (such as contact lens solution) to wash out a wound or get something out of your eye, and a needle and matches (or a lighter) to sterilize the needle before using it to get out a splinter, and some benedryl for an allergic reaction.
Not that anyone asked me.

I'm in for 6 of these. Great idea to keep them in your vehicles and gift them to your accident prone relatives as well. May never need to buy bandages again, and if you have McGuyver skills you may be able to save the planet with 6 kits.

Are the bandaids the crappy plastic ones or the better cloth ones?

Actually, my favorite bandaids are the $0.99 cloth ones from Walmart. They're squared off at the corners which makes them seem cheap, but they don't have hugely excess amounts of adhesive so when you take them off you don't have to pull out the gritty hand cleaner to remove the adhesive, and they work well for fingers where you're just going to wrap the bandaid around upon itself again anyway.

For those of you concerned about the expiration dates on the Neosporin (or just use it frequently), here's a great way to make your own little to-go packs:

You can also use the same process to make travel size Vaseline, alcohol gel, toothpaste, aloe... anything that's gel-ish and may find its way into your first aid kit or overnight bag.

You get to have a potty break while at work? I'll bet you even get a lunch break! Sweet!

This is a great deal. The small kits sell for a dollar each at the dollar tree and for more at Big Lots ( when they have them). The cheapest you are going to find the large kits for is around $10 ( that's how much I paid several years ago) on sale. So in a store this deal would cost about $22 on sale-- more at regular cost. With two I can replace my old used up kit I keep at home and have a second kit for the car, and have a small kit in my BOB and still have one small kit left over. UMM maybe I should buy two-- would it be creepy to give these out for Easter--first aid for all those headless bunnies. ;-)iy

I see a cold pack in the list of items. I am surprised it doesn't have an expiration date.

Thanks for the link--I am going to try that for short hikes. I don't t recommend taking small, homemade tubes of an unknown substance on planes though--might be hard to explain to those TSA types. :-)

I'm supposed to get a lunch break but I can't remember the last time I had time to take one. Certainly not now with the advent of tax season upon us.

I'm constantly injuring myself in the work place to the tune of paper cuts, splinters, and cabinet piercings, I might have to get me this deal.

Wish I had these last Saturday, fell off my bike and my J&J kit at home was rather empty.

I'm probably going to consolidate 2 of these to a new package with additional items.

I'm a firm believer in lowering expectations at the onset. IAdditionally, I anticipate I will be needing to borrow a few after she unwraps them.

I've seen these kits for the same price at Walmart (if you factor in shipping). I've got one in my closet. This isn't a deal. Pass.

Since when has anyone shopped CVS for a deal.. They're easily one of the most overpriced stores imaginable. They're only worth considering for prescriptions and advertised deals. Everything else is at least 20-30% more expensive than any other store.

These things are cheap and plentiful if you look for them. My guess is that most people haven't priced them at local shops.

The Woot price on this item is average or slightly below average (yes, even with 2). Look for the Johnson and Johnson brand and you'll see.

Other brands that include much more useful items than just a few band aids, some gauze, and a less than impressive first aid book can be more expensive, but that's not what you're looking at here.

You're basically buying a bunch of band aids in a plastic box with a red cross on it for $11. Whatever makes you feel safe at night, I guess.

It's definitely not a deal.

If you look closely, that's not the same kit. There seem to be two out there, one with just bandages and one with some medications like Tylenol and Immodium.

Next time watch where you're going and you wouldn't have to pay for the band-aid kit.

Do I dare submit a Woot receipt to my flexible spending account? They eliminated most over the counter items, but I think they still cover bandages...

You do realize it's 2 kits + 2 travel kits for each woot right? It definitely IS a deal if you get 3 of them (ie 6 kits and 6 to go kits), the total is $22.97. By my math that comes out to around $3.83 per kit (not counting the to go kits). That's a bit cheaper than $11, ha.

So I fail to see the argument. At my local Walmart you can get 30 band aids and 12 gauze pads alone for about $4.75 . By ordering 3 sets (6 + 6), you're way ahead and basically getting everything apart from the 34 band aids free in each set.

With the kids sports season in full swing, these are perfect to carry with you in your car to tournaments. We've been buying stuff separately and making our own kits, but there's no way you could beat this deal buying it all separately.
