Ready your eatin' pants and strap on the feed bag because it's time to gorge yourself on sweet deals! We've got a little taste of everything, so don't be shy. Go back for seconds and thirds if you like. There's no judgment here.

Discuss the items for sale in the Tryptophantastic Savings here.

Oh, and since we have a few items to discuss, tell us which one you're talking about too.

Some of our trucks in the fire department are showing their age... not sure the pumping capacity of the electric one up for sale would be sufficient though.;)

I do appreciate the woot-off heads up too.

There's no big button for today's sale. There is a link right below the blurb on the main page though.

Wait a minute?!?! How did you get here?

You need the button. It's confusing enough to have this weirdness on the main page. Changing how we Wooters all get together to discuss is bad form. If you don't happen to find your way here, it looks like Woot is toying with the idea of losing the discussions, full stop.

Also...

The "Tryptophantastic Savings" page just isn't Woot. I know it's supposed to look cheap and cheesy, a la Sunday circulars. But Woot has a clean, clear design (although less so than a year ago), and tarting it up even in jest is bad form.

So does anyone have the Soft-Tex Gel Overlay Comfort pillows?

I'm interested in these, but made in China makes me wonder what I'd be breathing in all night.

It reminds me of a Fry's Electronics newsprint ad.

Also, what does "Cover GSM" mean?

GSM = Grams per Square Meter
It's a measurement used in fabrics.

Thanks. Not sure how much it helps knowing that, and Google's not much help (it seems GSM is used mostly for paper). Is higher better? Like thread count? If so, how does 250 compare to...I don't even know what to compare it to.

How about this. It's talking about towels but the idea is the same.

I pulled the trigger on the speed shoes. Hope they work for racquetball. Anyone seen or experienced how they fare?

I was drunk for my first woot...now I can't stop coming here.

That's because there a̶i̶n̶t̶ isn't any more to the write-up. Short and sweet today.

And thanks for the props to the getup.

Well, I bought the Klipsch One earphones a few weeks ago here, and they're the same price today. So I don't see any additional savings :-\

That pressure washer is a cheap Chinese knock off of a Karcher unit. They even copied the company's trademark shade of yellow.

Bought the home microdermabrasion machine here couple of months ago, same price, but I have to say I love it, use it 3 times a week. One of my best investments ever. I have had numerous microdermabrasion treatments in spas over the years and this unit is best of the best.

I wouldn't use them for racquetball. The tread looks like it's for outdoor use since it has large channels for water.

Look at some of these shoes from Amazon for comparison. Notice how the tread is different.

http://www.amazon.com/Best-Sellers-Shoes-Mens-Racquetball/zgbs/shoes/3420965011

But who am I to judge? I just use regular street sneakers and they work. Most courts just have rules that they must be non-marking shoes; however, getting the best grip is critical if you're a good player.

I was under the impression that there'd be a Woot-off sale. But now that i think about it i guess it'll be for Cyber Monday.

I got the bike lights (wife loves making our bikes as bright as possible...), but was gleefully happy to see more Teva shoes on sale. The Spheres (speed version) are not as obnoxious as they appear, and are extremely comfortable to wear. Aside from sleeping, I've been wearing mine pretty much non-stop since the last woot sale.

Lightweight, though the sizing runs a bit small (I'm ten normal shoes, and ordered the 11s which fit great.)

Glad to see them offered again, and with the cheaper price, I can pretend that I'm getting free shipping on my whole woot order!

Actually, pretty awful for that use. Look at the heal - see how it is fully rounded? Not something I would ever wear for such an activity. These are designed for outdoor running/walking.

Wow, today Woot! looks exactly like the bundle of weekly unwanted coupons that goes straight from the mailbox to the recycle bin without even a casual glance. The final acknowledgement that Woot! has dulled the senses through over-saturation and is no longer a special, must see every day experience. Gone is that sense of catch it or miss it: I now know that anything featured today has a good chance of reoccurring tomorrow or perhaps next Thursday....
