Actually, the "autonomous" part means that woot! will retain their own crappy customer service. http://instantrimshot.com/

I just found Lefty! If you want him back, leave four, unmarked, one dollar bills on my office desk, plus 29 cents in change. This is pay off my debt to Starbucks. Lefty will be in a cup, with enough water to cover him to keep him happy. Eyeballs need liquid, right?

Thanks

Anyone worried about Amazon changing woot....I hope it only increases the server load and decreases shipping times!

I think this can be a good thing, as long as Amazon doesn't meddle. Don't get me wrong I like Amazon, but I like Woot! alot better.

So, now you need to change site names:

woot = sellout.wootA
sellout.woot = sellout.wootY

Major congrats, woot!

No, Prime won't apply since Amazon is not selling their items, they are merely (putting it lightly) a store within Amazon.

So in laymans (ie. dumbass) terms, what will this mean for us woot shoppers? And what about for us Amazon shoppers?

Must have hit those "certain unnamed sales targets", eh?

EDIT: Coincidentally, I got a package from both woot and amazon today!

By the way, Woot!...

Oh wow, that brings back memories. I was a CD-NOW affiliate until they got eaten by the Amazonians, and ever since I've taken a rather dim view of the online giant. But given the universal praise being heaped on the Woot deal, I'll go along... pass the Kool-Aid!

Cr@p-free no more as of 5/26/2010!

I know, the only way this could get better is if they merge with Costco and Google now.

I am, honestly, happy for you guys. It's the kind of deal that all privately-owned, small companies hope for. Sad for us however since most corporate buy-outs/"partnerships" mean less for the customer in the end. Here's wishing that you stay truly autonomous and are allowed to continue to run your business as you always have - that's what's kept us loyal. Best of luck guys!

1.) Does this mean the Missouri sales tax will go away?

2.) Will Snapster be obligated not to start up a similar site?

3.) Something doesn't feel really great about this, and I hope I'm wrong.
