Just adding my $.02. I just bought an item from tech woot, then found something else i wanted and discovered this great "improvement" of the cart vs $5 for all orders in one day. I think Woot as it morphs into the Amazon borg has forgotten who its customers are. I'll buy a lot less from Woot from here out, it used to be a fun impulse buy, but as you try and introduce these "subtle" changes designed to wring more profit out of us the fun ends......
No more purchases until they bring back the $5 all day shipping, Vote with your wallet!

I joined WooT the day before the 4th of July, 2007. I was so impressed that they only charged $5 shipping for a washer & dryer shipped from Texas, when a local furniture company charged me $70 to deliver a sofa three blocks from my home.
The Woot-offs were my favorite WooT purchases, especially when you could buy all-day for only $5 shipping. Several weeks ago when they had their Woot-off, I purchased nothing. I hope that maybe with the next Woot-off I'll get back in the buying mood; but I doubt it. I'll still check all of the daily WooT offerings, but impulse buying has been curtailed.
Well, there's always the memories.

Just realized I have been getting charged $5 for every order. On my fifth wootoff item (yeah, I'm stupid and never checked the total before hitting ”buy it). Thought there was a glitch and sent support an email, only to learn of the new policy. As someone who probably qualifies as a ”super-wooter”, this will drastically change my wooting habits. Every item just got $5 more expensive. This is a stoopid idea. Let me know when you go back to $5/day shipping.
