Woot!


quality posts: 0 Private Messages Woot!

Holy crap! Woot has signed an agreement with Amazon - yes, the Amazon - to become an independent subsidiary of the ecommerce colossus. Woot HQ will remain in Carrollton, Texas, and will operate as autonomously as other Amazon companies like Zappos and Audible. More details forthcoming after we pick our eyeballs up off of the floor. Anybody see where Lefty rolled off to?

Here's more:

Direct press/media inquiries to  media@woot.com.

Wow, that's crazy! Congrats guys & gals, welcome to the Big Dogs.

My only complaint is that it's going to mean even MORE competition for a great big Bowl of Cereal!!

I came, I saw, I bought.

Whoa! Crazy news. Congrats, first off. Having read Tony Hsieh's reasoning for allowing Zappos to be a subsidiary of Amazon, I look forward to see how the resources of Amazon only serve to help Woot become better at what it does best.

Surprising since you do so much work with Buy, does this mean you won't be shipping products for them and vice versa anymore?

Whoa. Seriously? I sure hope Woot doesn't loose that "different than the rest" feel that I've come to love of all things Woot!

On the bright side, the source warehouses for the Box of Cats just grew considerably!!

Congratulations, Woot! I'm sure this is a really big deal that few get to have.


My username didn't change to jimp for my birthday, but I understand. Thanks, we're good!

That would be SERIOUSLY awesome. I've been Prime for about 6 years now, and it always pays for itself several times over in the year in free shipping. Not only that, but about half the time, I get something I chose for 2 day shipping in 1 day. Can't beat that.

Does that mean you will also be getting Amazon servers for Woot-Offs??

That is tres amazing. As a Prime member, I will certainly be hoping for a free-shipping Woot Off. Holy Hannah, I'm gonna go broke.

Agreed. I recently read an article about that, saying how they're pleased that Amazon embraced Zappos' unique corporate culture that makes it a great place to work.
