Starting Tuesday, March 6th, 2018, we’ll be hiding $10 coupons in secret spots on our site for the next 7 days. Where, do you ask? That’s why it’s called a QUEST, knucklehead. You gotta find them!

Mortimer will be hacking into our site four times a day to drop $10 coupons into in various locations: random offers, forum threads, on the app, in an image, in a poll, in a monkey chat, on your forehead (probably not all of those). They could be ALMOST ANYWHERE. You’ll know you’ve found one if you stumble across a weird alphanumeric string of characters like QSWJQA7CAW or S2ZZJZI7FW or even 7GQJGIQQQI. And no, none of those work. But kudos for trying!

If you DO find a real code, you’d better act quickly because they are only valid for the day they are posted, and there are only a handful times that each coupon can be used. Like, a really, really small handful. So the first Wooters to use them, get them. If you’re lucky enough to uncover a coupon, use it first, then post about it in this thread below.

Also, because of the really, really, REALLY limited amount of uses per coupon, you may stumble across a coupon and get all excited and go to use it at checkout, only to find out that it’s already been used. Don’t fret! Like we mentioned, Mort will be dropping them onto the site four times each day through March 12th, 2018.

So, clear your calendar and be ready to spend 168 straight hours scouring the site and the app for these really, really, really, really, really limited-quantity $10 coupons. Or maybe don’t pay attention at all and wait for someone else to post about them in the thread below. But by that time, they might be used up. Good luck!

 

THE DREADED FINE PRINT: Coupons are worth $10 each. Coupons must be applied at checkout. Coupons expire at 11:59pm CT on the day they are posted on site. Coupons cannot be applied to shipping charges. Coupons are NOT valid on Gourmet.Woot orders. Coupons cannot be combined with other offers. Coupons can be redeemed just once per customer – meaning if you use your $10 on an $8 product, you’re not going to have a $2 coupon balance for your next order. Coupons are spelled “coupons” but can be pronounced “coo-pons” or “q-pons” depending on your location. Woot.com makes no claim on the proper pronunciation of “coupons.”

I don't think they are actually giving codes... they are simply too elusive.

Here's the thread!!!



Wow! Some people are quick on the hunt!

The coupon has been found and has been used up for this one. There will be 3 more times later today. No, we won't tell you when.

Where was it? It was in the specs of the Home daily.



Did you find it?

So I am confused. How do you know what items you can or cannot use it on?


Edit: Nevermind, looks like you can use it on everything except Gourmet. I read limited number of items not limited number of times.......I'm a little slow today.

I don't think there's any chance I'm going to see one of these. At least not in time. Or at all.

There’s too much crap to look through to find one of these codes & be lucky enough that it still works. I wish I could take the day off to spend looking through the same stuff over & over again in search for these dang things. Booo to adulting!

:snark:

I think it's a fun idea, maybe not exactly the best day to run it. If I've ran through the top offers and decided I don't want any of them, why bother screwing around digging for a coupon I'm not going to use and probably has been used up by the time I get to it?

Moar better would be during a wootoff.

I can't say for sure, but I bet probably the red-headed stepchild "Flash Deals" category will lack coupons.

Much too complicated to script, and a waste of time to check for multiple times a day unless I happen upon one.

My time is worth more than the $10 I'd save on a coupon, that would go towards something I probably wouldn't have purchased otherwise.

Cool idea for those that happen across one, just not something I'm interested in. Good luck!

WTH, lich?! I thought you'd have a sub-site on wootstalker for tracking every deal page (including flash deals) to alert of any changes.

FYI: 8Cr13MoV is just a type of steel.
Also, model numbers don't currently seem to work as coupons... (ex:A3EMERGENCYLIGHT or VEVOFD25105G)

Found a description of the first pair of Pearl Izumi Biking Shorts and under its specs there is a code LYCRAA, but it doesn't work! Is this not a code?

What about a brute-force way of cycling through the random alpha-numeric to verify if any are valid coupons?

Something must be wrong if you know that Mortimer will be hacking the site soon (and don't stop him).

Whatever, I will still just come here, look at things I am not going to buy, read the poles and leave just like I always do.

I found one, but it's not working...
Don't know what else it could be...

Edit: It worked!

Hints:
-It's not on a main deal, but it is on an item page (not a category page or anything like that)
-The code is visible as text without having to click on any links or anything.
-The font is NOT bold
