Family holiday get-togethers are always an unstable mixture of fun and celebration on the one hand, and tedium and tension on the other. This Thanksgiving, Woot is going to help you get away from it all with a weeklong event at pop.woot.com - that link will just take you to the front page of Woot right now, but that all changes at the stroke of midnight this Thursday morning. We can't say much more than that at the moment. We'll see you at pop.woot.com on Thanksgiving. And unlike your relatives, we promise not to criticize your career choices or spout belligerent political rants. At last, a holiday celebration you can look forward to!

Cheap soft drinks? New deal every day? Would have been coke.woot.com before they moved to St. Louis and Seattle.

Pardon me, would you have any bags of crap?

Never too early to start on shopping for Father's Day, perhaps?

Maybe it's Woots new Email server and smtp.woot.com will be here in time for Kwanzaa?

Doh. 10 PM PST Nov. 21st is the night of my 3rd wedding anniversary. I don't think I'm going to get out of that one. But good luck to everyone hitting up pop.woot.com

I know, right?!! I have a 4 mile Turkey Trot Thursday morning too...
I guess a few less hours of sleep won't hurt too much, might even be worth it!

12:00 AM is morning. You'll want to check on 12:00 AM (central time) Turkey Day. Very early Thursday morning just after Wednesday night.

If we had a deal with Community we wouldn't be secretive. You wouldn't be able to stop us from talking about it.

I suspect this is some kind of take on "pop-up shops." They're so hot right now.

But what? Hmmm.....

Pop up turkey timers in your Big ol' Cornucopia In for 3!

I'm actually wondering how many people don't get this joke at all. Silly regional dialects.

Anyway, woohoo popupshop.

Do I really need a woot.com e-mail address? I've got enough addresses already. But I assume you'll be launching smtp.woot.com at the same time, right?

Given some of the products they have been selling lately, the next woot will be infomercial.woot

Good gods, beer.woot.com would bankrupt me.

My guess: "pop.woot" will be a perpetual woot-off.

Could be either a set time for new items to "pop up" or random items will "pop up" during the day.

It would bring new meaning to the phrase "direct deposit."

*thinking outside the box*

Possibilities:
POPular items (items that sold out quickly/high demand)

woot's own version of black Friday, cyber Monday, etc

a place for people to sell unwanted items

Those are my hypotheses. I'm betting out of the three it's going to be a black Friday type thing as the dates and even times somewhat match up with the sames stores are doing.
