Amazon Payments: Free Shipping If You're Fast Enough

by Scott Lydon

Do you like to buy things? Do you like to buy things from Woot? Do you like to buy things using our new Amazon Payments option? Do you like to get free shipping for using Amazon Payments? If you fit all these options, then you might be interested in this.

For a super limited time, Woot.com is bragging about Amazon Payments by offering a serious shipping deal for anybody who pays via our Amazon Payments system (which is that thing we told you about back here). Here's the short version: log in with your Amazon Payments account to find a five dollar shipping coupon waiting patiently for you in your cart, which we'll apply if you pay with Amazon Payments. It'll appear just above the total over on the right. That shipping coupon means (duh) you'll be saving some money on shipping!

If you choose Standard Shipping, your shipping will be free! Hurrah! If you choose Expedited Shipping (like second day or overnight) that shipping will be five dollars cheaper! Huzzah! Either way, you save five bucks. It'll be a coupon that appears before the tax and it'll be nice and obvious once you take a gander at your cart. Go on, Login and Pay with Amazon and see.

Oh, you'll find all the official legal Terms & Conditions just after the jump, so we invite you to click through and look at that part of the post too. Then rush to your cart and BUY BUY BUY BUY BUY BUY BUY

Woot Launches Login and Pay with Amazon, Hurrah, Hurrah

by Scott Lydon

Woot.com awoke from a dream, and threw open the window. "You there! Boy! What day is it?" The boy shouted back, "Today? Today's the day that Woot.com lets customers log in and pay with their Amazon account!" Woot.com sank to the floor with a happy smile. "I'm not too late," Woot.com whispered to itself. "Thank you, Spirit. Thank you."

Of course, you may now wonder what in the Dickens we're talking about here, and it's simple: Woot.com now offers customers a secure, simple convenient way to pay for their Woot purchases by logging in with their Amazon credentials and selecting their shipping and payment methods from their Amazon account. We're pretty happy about that!

Old Customers will be able to sync their two accounts easily, and new customers can sync from day one, saving everybody lots of typing time. Who wants to do their own data entry when they could be playing with poor Tiny Tim? He's so adorable, isn't he?

Additionally, all purchases made via Amazon Payments are covered by Amazon’s A-to-z guarantee, so you guys know you're safe! Amazon and Woot have been working hard to improve the Woot customer experience ever since the ghost of Jacob Marley demanded we change our ways, so we're happy to have Login and Pay with Amazon added to our payment options. We've got a nice little Amazon Payments FAQ that sums up the whole process right over here, so check it out if you wanna.
