JULY 12, 2018: WOOT TURNS 14. ARE YOU READY?

​​

It's our birthday- and you're invited! Woot.com is turning 14, so we're throwing a day-long SEVERAL-DAYS-LONG party. Get your party pants on! Here are some of things that are gonna happen:

 

Be ready for the big day! The party starts Tuesday, July 10th with ridiculously-good deals (so good we can't tell you what they are yet)! Get ready by signing up for a Woot account if you don’t already have one. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter for the latest birthday news and updates. And download our app for exclusive offers, and bonus surprises.

Click the relevant button below to download the right Woot app for your device:

 

 

What to expect on Thursday, July 12th

The 14-hour Birthday Edition Woot-Off will start at 8am CT and last till 10pm CT. Super-low prices on limited-quantity products, with some very special surprises thrown into the cake batter.

 

 

Score one of Woot's famous Bags of Crap

We've been assembling thousands of extra-crappy Bags of Crap to scatter throughout the site, our social channels, and the Woot app. We can't guarantee what's inside, but we can guarantee you will be disappointed. Oh, and we lowered the price from $10 to $9.99. YOU'RE WELCOME.

 

 

Special-Edition BIRTHDAY Bags of Crap

Each hour during the 14-hour Woot-Off, we'll release 14 specially-priced, limited-edition Birthday Bags of Crap. They are packed with extra crap, and a special certificate you can frame and hang on your wall. If you're into that kind of thing. And yes, they are limited to one per customer. But if you've gotten a regular BOC in the past, you can try for one of these...

 

 

$1 Prices? WTF?!?

Starting Thursday, we'll run one of our (in)famous WTF Pricing events every day through Monday, July 16. We list a product with extremely-limited quantities for $1, then keep raising the price and adding quantities over the next hour or so, until we're sold out. Yes, it's totally weird. Click here to learn more.

 

 

Do You Have a Phone?

Because you now have a reason to use it: WEEKEND APP CRAP! Our minions have been hard at work, sourcing truly weird and wonderful items, that will ONLY be available on the Woot! app on Saturday, July 14 and Sunday, July 15. And when we say Crap, you know what that means...

 

 

The Trailer of Crap

The what of WHAT?? You heard us, the Trailer of Crap. We have a towable, road-legal trailer that we're not using anymore, so we're putting it up for sale on our Birthday. One lucky sucker can purchase this one-of-a-kind Crap on wheels for the low, low price of...nooo, we're not telling you that until our Birthday. Stay tuned!

I'd rant about how Woot can't seem to decide when to celebrate their birthday since it changes year to year, but this was already discussed last year.

There is what to learn from the potato.

A nice birthday gift would be to suspend the 31 day rule. Just this once.

Woot only lets you buy 1 bag of crap every 31 days. There are a lot of people who won't be able to buy one during the birthday event because they already bought one in late June.

It's a wait on getting a second Band of Conspirators. You can't get a second until 31 days after your first.

dammit bsmith beat me to it.

Nope. Our birthday happens the same time every year. It wasn't a surprise, especially to you old timers.

I guess that doesn't contradict what I typed.

The birthday is the same date, but commemorating it isn't.

Back when it was the 7 day rule I seem to recall Woot saying that while you couldn't buy a Bandolier on Chewie during that 7 days you could still win one if it was a prize for a contest. I think it was related to the "Guess what's in Manhand's hands" thing they used to do but maybe they'll have some similar ways to snag crap for their birthday.

You know when you have a birthday party, you often have the party on the preceding or following Saturday so all your friends can make it, stay up late with you, not worry about work the next day, etc?

Same deal. Except all our friends (y'all) are usually out on weekends and not sitting at your computers so Woot is the opposite. We move our party around to make sure you can hang with us! This year, we can do it on our actual birthday. Hope you can join the fun!

Yeah, contests are different. Not sure we're having any of those though for Bandolier on Chewies.

Ooh, special editions! Are they on the same timer as the regular ones? (Yes would be a nice answer.)

Since it's your birthday (Goncrats and all o'that...) Would you be willing to answer a couple a Woot historical questions?

Fr'instance; Any employees celebrating their 14'th anneversary working for Woot?

And; Why is Woot tied to the Central Time Zone, since it seems most of your offices are now in Washington (state)?

Does a regular Bandolier on Chewie prevent you from getting a special Bandolier on Chewie? Asking for a friend.
