As everyone else has already said...sad day for the woot-offs. And for the woot plus items, for that matter. I often would purchase a daily woot, or a woot-off item, that piqued my interest and seemed like a good deal, knowing I could quickly purchase it, and then COME BACK AT MY LEISURE later in the day and check out all the woot plus sales (or in the case of the woot-off, check as often as I could find time throughout the day) and get more stuff without paying the icky (and sometimes deal breaker) $5 shipping.
Let's face it...as others have stated, there are plenty of times when woot prices aren't THAT much better...even if woot's price is still a couple dollars cheaper than amazon after shipping, I'll choose amazon if it's that close, just for the better return policy when a product is defective or the like...
The woot purchasing experience WAS very unique, and in a good way. It was one of the FEW websites that I didn't mind paying shipping so much, because of the way shipping was handled. Let's just say I'll be thinking twice on future purchases, and will definitely not have any particular motivation to check back for "one more thing before midnight" if I do order again in the future.
Say goodbye to a big chunk of your impulse buyer crowd woot!
