Wednesday, September 12 from 8am CT until 8pm CT

New deals pop up every 15 minutes or less!

WHACK-A-DEAL is something that our beloved forum moderator Thunder Thighs has been wanting to try for a long time. Here's how it works:

• At the start time (see above), the Whack-A-Deal page launches with 12-15 deals. Some of the deals might only have a few quantities available.

• Every 15 minutes or less, a new deal will pop up at the top of the page, and we'll remove a deal. How will you know? You'll need to refresh the page.

• Some items may be removed from the page for the rest of the day, and others may come back again (at the same price. No price trickery in this event).

• We'll keep about 15 products on the page at any given time. If an item sells out, it will move to the bottom of the page.

• Bags of Crap will pop up every now and then. Yeehaw!
 
HINTS, TIPS, and EXPECTATIONS
 
• The page will appear as "Sold Out" until the Whack-A-Deal event starts at the specific time above.
 
• If you miss an offer, don't fret. We might run the same deal again! Stick around, refresh the page, or come back later in the day to see the current batch of deals.
 
• This is an experiment. It's kind of like a Woot-Off, but with more stuff available at the same time.
 
• We want to have fun with this, and we want to know what you think. So tell us!
 
THANKS FOR READING AND GOOD LUCK!

Won't be able to participate for most of this due to work.

Which is slightly ironic, since I'm going to be on a computer the whole time anyways.

Sounds fun though.

There is what to learn from the potato.

The problem, however, is that I'm currently being personally mentored by the CEO of my company, and he doesn't allow any distractions.

This sounds cool. But since it's a TT idea, I'm not surprised. She's come up with so many neat things to keep us entertained (and buying of course).

Hoping for some weird stuff.

Ah. You're being "groomed". Today is the day you get that big promotion!

Possibly not though. He's the only one who knows the particulars of the position which I'm at. 😶

I mean technically so am I. Does it count as mentoring if it’s the CEO of Woot and he just shakes his head violently every time I try to say something he knows will almost certainly get me in trouble with the parent company high muckamucks?

Looking forward to something fresh and new to distract me from working.
Good luck to all you fellow time wasters on the Brigade of Campers's.
I assume since I got a Brigade of Campers in the last 30 days, I'm outta luck, yes ? No special dispensation on the rule during this Beta tester ?

I'm guessing per order.

It's a good thing I'm not eligible for crap- this is even more time consuming than woot-offs. You have outdone yourselves.

WAY more! And Wootstalker doesn't work with this. It more likely allows random people to stumble upon the prize. I like that actually. Hopefully they will post so we can get the chance of letters again.

Plus it's like a hidden puzzle game. I see that things have moved around, can I figure out what's new.

I haven't been watching closely, but the Gourmet whack-a-deal sale seems to be a normal event sale...
