Charter Member Clarification: Who Is And Who Isn't?

by Jason Toon
We've been getting some interest from longtime Woot users wondering if they're Woot Charter Members or not. Seems there's a need for clearing up who's in and who's out. Here's the rule:

The first 5,000 members to buy from Woot were named Charter Members.

So a member number less than 5000 doesn't necessarily make you a charter member.  You had to be one of the first 5,000 to buy something from us, not one of the first 5,000 to sign up. We're working on defining a more specific cut-off line, which we'll post in this space a little later today. Sorry for any confuzzlement, y'all.

UPDATE: it looks like we may have found the unofficial 5,000th member to buy from Woot. Order number 10017253 was placed on 9/17/2004 at 7:35 am. If your first purchase from us was after that, you're probably not a Charter Member.

And now that that's out of the way, let's get back to the reunion. Read the original blog post, or join the discussion below.
