Good thing Amazon lets me cancel stuff. I prefer a straw to a spoon for drinking coffee.

It seemed like a good idea at the time.

Set your alarm! There's some great stuff.



Uh, any not-later and it's already work hours. At least for some of us. Just pointing out some of us don't work banker's hours.

But some of us are, or used to be...
When I was a banker, I was at my desk about an hour before the doors opened and still there 2 or 3 hours after the doors closed most often. And Saturday morning shifts were pretty common. Posted bank lobby hours are NOT actual bankers hours - just sayin'

What if there were no hypothetical questions?

With shipping it's about $15 off. Not bad but not worth returning the one I have either.

So today's offering is something I'd love to have but can't even remotely afford. I am grumbling so hard right now.

"remotely"? I see what you did there.

My favorite part is the sales stats vs. the 1-unit purchase limit. 35% of purchasers joined today. I, for one, welcome our new ghost account Pilgrims!

edit: So weird. O-v-e-r-l-o-r-d-s changes to pilgrims? I'm interested in the reasoning behind this.

I'm guessing here, but maybe they were getting tired of people posting about the AMZN Lords-of-Over.

There's all sorts of little Easter Egg word filters lol.

Would have jumped on this if I could afford it right now, but it's a bit out of my price range. Maybe when it's tax time.

It's working now! It just took the server a sec to catch up

Also, thanks to everyone who is getting up early to check out these sales with us! You make this sleepy Woot staffer a lot less lonely on a Sunday morning I promise we've got some really cool stuff in store for everyone.

I'm guessing you're west coast like me. IT'S STILL DARK OUTSIDE. More or less.

Thanks, karichar, for working on this.

Cool stuff in store for us TODAY or just during the event in general? I kept checking yesterday to see if the item changed after it sold out, but that theory didn't work out.

Is a light switch with a sticker for $15 w/shipping a good deal or a rip-off (other than the laugh it may or may not bring)? I looked up light switches and unless that's a wireless switch, it appears to be a very high price to pay.

I promise you just bought a light switch, a sticker, and some paperboard.

And if you have any delusion otherwise, please see the woot dime bag. Or any of the other completely honest sales, like the bag of weed

I even showed this to the kid who is getting the Switch for Christmas. Still couldn't help myself. He will be opening a Switch box with an exclusive DIY Switch on the 25th.

Does this look in any way shape or form like a licensed product of "Nintendo"? Does anyone think Woot, a partner with Amazon, would take on the Copyright infringement implications by throwing out this back room 3d printed light switch job?

You can buy the sticker shown on the listing (here's one on Etsy). I don't know what the cutout joy-cons are made out of, but if you look at the larger resolution versions of the images on the listing, they look flat. Pictures of actual joy-cons have shadows and a different font on the buttons.

Maybe you will get lucky, but don't be disappointed if all you get is exactly what the listing says.

I absolutely won't be disappointed. It's a $15 gamble. My son is getting a Switch anyway, so if he opens the gag light switch first, it'll just set up the real present better in the long run.

The point I was trying to make with the Copyright comments above, was to emphasize where I thought Woot/Amazon was as a company. Yes, you can piece together stickers, 3d printed this and that from Etsy and eBay, but I felt Woot wouldn't go down that road. I'm prob wrong...

Good thing you're only allowed to buy one of these cheap knockoffs. Right?

From time to time, Woot gets Cease and desist orders over a listing. They know it, but it's a risk they're willing to take for a gag that's blatantly NOT a knockoff but an obvious pun thereof -- because that's just the type of nutcases they are.

Besides, the pic shows this as a NINT()NDO SWITCH. It's totally NOT a NINTENDO SWITCH!

FWIW, the real switch can't handle flipping 15 amps of current. This can.

Thanks! My little boy will love it in his room regardless. Since I didn't get a letter in this last round of crap, feel free to throw in a set of joycons if the spirit of the season hits ya.

I'd do it for you, TT!
