That said, people are still willing to buy them at the inflated rates. I'm not (especially since I need prescription sunglasses), but other people are.



Just go to zenni - ive gotten prescription sunglasses for $20

Don't know why I'm even trying at the $50 price, but I'm once again in the vestibule with no expectation it'll go through.

I was hoping there would be more than one item...like a big TV, a laptop, a big sports item. Like a variety so you could pick the item you REALLY want and your chances would be improved because people can only go for one item out of all of them (even at the increased prices). I don't need sunglasses.

Thanks for the suggestion. I wear bifocals so I'm not sure how that affects the price, but I will check it out. Thanks again.

Biggest waste of time ever, oh how I so miss the days of Woot before Amazon times. This is a nice concept but as far as we know this is another Woot scam that we are all falling for. Regardless of how horrible the product is or how the description makes it seem like more then you get the device and realize you got dooped, we still fall for the crud they stick us with and smile. At least I was able to get my fruit picker with the exclusive app purchase!!

This feels like those sleazy auction sites they advertise on TV late at night where, "I won/bought this brand new computer for $4.72!" while forgetting to mention the bidding fees or other hidden costs. Not buying in at $50 or $99.

There were no hidden costs here.

Just product cost, shipping (if one did not use Amazon login), and tax.

But I know what you're trying to say.

Absolutely, price/cost is transparent, but I'm not going to pay more for something like this because I get caught up in the emotion of it all. $1, heck yeah, $20, sure, $72 (which i finally got in on because i wanted to see if even possible) walked away without them.

Uh, yeah...like 4 sets of sunglasses at increasing prices every 10 minutes. The event page stays the same, but the link the glasses go to will change. Next one will probably be $99.

If you squint at the chart it kind of looks like a boat, the bots or whatever definitely caused a lot of waves, and some people are apparently seasick based on their bitter responses. All in all, it's been a fun nautical adventure!

34 minutes later, the VOP still has me in its clutches. I'm just leaving that tab open at this point to see how long it can keep me there. :P

And with that, I was pushed out in to the Sold Out abyss, lol. This was fun regardless. I wasn't even trying past $20 because I'm old and cheap but still had fun watching the forum and awaiting my expulsion from the VOP :D

It's fine. While I'm still waiting for a solution to my email address problem, logging in with Amazon is not the worst thing.

(Though when I drop Prime near the end of the year, it won't save me $5.)

Anyone have a price protection credit card? I wonder if they will refund you most of the money because someone paid $1?

The funny thing is, both the first and last Wooters are on my dev team. Not sure how to feel about this information.
