August 1 at 10:00am CT: Mobile 1 Motor Oil, 5W-30 (5 Quarts)

August 1 at 6:00pm CT: Klipsch R6i In-Ear Headphones (Refurb)

Prices start at $1 (Super-limited quantities)

WTF (Woot's Totally Fun-tastic) Pricing is a way for us to give you a chance at a ridiculous price on a specific deal without losing our shirts. Here's how it works:

• At the start time (see above), the deal launches at $1. There are just a few at this price. If you missed it, stay on that page for the next offer.

• Every few minutes, the price goes up a little more, with just a few at each price level. We'll keep raising the price until we reach a "final" price and/or it sells out. The price will increase 5-6 times before the final price is reached.

 
HINTS, TIPS, and EXPECTATIONS
 
• WTF Pricing is for these offers only.
 
• The deals will appear "Sold Out" until WTF Pricing starts at the specific times above.
 
• When the offer is live, click on it to try and buy it. A lot of other people will be clicking on it too.
 
• If you miss an offer, keep trying. Refresh the WTF page (F5 key on a PC) until the sale goes live again.
 
There are only a few quantities at each price point. Not just one, but not dozens. A FEW. Each level will sell out really quickly. Most likely you're not going to get one for $1. BUT YOU NEVER KNOW.
 
When you click on the offer, you might be ushered into Woot's Vestibule of Patience, the queue of customers who are trying to order. From there, you'll either be taken to the checkout page, or our servers will hiccup and kick you out to Woot's main page.
 
• You may get a message that your order has been denied or canceled. This just means that we ran out of inventory at that price before we could complete your order. Most likely this is going to happen, so just be ready for the disappointment.
 
And hey, if you ARE lucky enough to get the deal at one of the crazy-low prices, post about it in the thread below, or on social media, so other Wooters don't think this is some bait and switch deal. We can say it's not, but the internet never believes anyone. Help a Woot out, OK?
 
THANKS AND GOOD LUCK!

Oil? For a $1? I wasn't planning on buying any, but I think I need it now.

REMEMBER

You want to refresh the page with the large WTF banner for the next sales. The URL is different for each priced sale. Refreshing a sold out page does no good.

I use Mobil 1! Do we know what weight will be offered?
Edit: based on past sales, I reckon 5w-30.

For $1 just dump it in your car and hope for the best!

I also wonder if it is a 5 QT or 1 QT.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Probably 5qt based on previous sales. Spouse's vehicle takes 6 quarts though, so I'll have to go buy a single one.

If you get 5 qts for a $1 I think you could afford to buy a single quart at full price

OR buy 5qt at the $1 level and another 5qt at the next price point! 4qt to spare! Maybe I could sell the leftover on the local buy/sell/trade sites...

Most people aren't ninjas like you so even getting one at a good price point would be a miracle. I still have absolutely no clue how you do it.

So basically you just pee all over the place and it works out. Good to know.

My internet connection isn't all that great, unfortunately. I'm running on my landlady's connection so I can't upgrade it. I'm good at scoring crap but not quite fast enough for this stuff. I'll just be jealous of you, instead.

Just your two minute reminder to let you know that you need to be refreshing the large WTF banner to get the next sale price. It is a different URL for each price we're selling this at. Make sure to refresh the below link!!!

So there's no wait page any more? You get it in your cart and then, hey, it might be yanked? I was always under the impression that once you got it in your cart and were at the review stage you could take a second and not worry about losing out.

“There was a problem with your order”

Ya, it didn’t go thru! Minor problem...

(No complaint, really, I got one of the last hikeos, and this was like a minihikeo?)

Edit: looks like we have a new mystery bag name? They are substituting words again...

I appreciate the info. I was more Curious than anything. I got one at the dollar level using my old login so the cart would load faster. Then I tried again with Amazon on the next sale and got that one as well. I have a feeling that this only happened though because they have so many more available this time. and I recalled one of the early sales bsmith said that he was able to get it using his Amazon login

Also, the site seemed extremely slow. I don't know if that was on my end though because my internet was acting wonky as well

I used the amazon logon today! FYI, This time I did NOT wait for the payment options to load. I clicked that final button as soon as the checkout page loaded. (before it could become greyed-out while the payment options loaded)

I thought I got a "problem with your payment" error or something like that when I tried doing this before, but it worked today!

They can't, they drained the drum and bent it into a chicken to give away.

Holy crap, first sucker at $1!

Had to sacrifice my free Prime shipping to get it (checkout's a little faster on main login), but worth it, I say.

Nice!

I was contemplating if I should use Prime or not, because I don't really want these anyways (I prefer flat earbuds).

Page loaded fast for me, but checkout l=page lagged for loading (not even to purchase, just to load the main page.)

🐧Too cool to have a signature.🐧
