Yeah, some year we may actually have a search. It's hard to figure out how to have a good search when you have a small set of products. Do you return "Not Found" for 88.4% of the requests? Sigh.

Anyway, no search.

We do have All Deals which lets you narrow down by category.

Or our Discover page which lets you scan on a nice, pretty, and soothing page.

I mean, a decade ago if you had trouble finding things on woot, I wouldn’t blame the lack of search. ;-)

That's fair. When did the side sales actually start appearing?

I suppose in the sense that it is "closely associated", but not in the the sense that it is "of a subsidiary group".

I loved that search bar since it randomly led to bags of crap.

I GOT A FRICKING LETTER (November, 2017).

Though after 2 outages today, I need a something bar. Maybe a wine bar, or a whisky bar.

More like in the sense that it is a direct affiliate (Maybe better known here as a "Minion").



The disclaimer is there because I steal their product write-ups/images. I intentionally left out the word affiliate. I don't want to mis-represent that I am an employee.
