Do you do the WOOT?

Do you do the WOOT?  Do you even know what the WOOT is?  I discovered the WOOT a few years ago from watching our local news.  Our local news does a daily segment that mentions websites worth visiting and one day they mentioned WOOT.  WOOT features one item each day for sale, usually at a much reduced rate than you can purchase the same item for elsewhere.  They feature electronic items, small appliances, and many other things.  I don't really know why but I never miss a day without checking to see what the WOOT item of the day is.  I rarely purchase anything but it's fun to see what is offered and for how much.  The few things I have gotten include a Pentax 8mp camera for $80 (retail was $230!), an 8G memory card for $10, an indoor/outdoor thermometer, an i-pod docking system.  I've always been very happy with what I've gotten.  The items that I have purchased are new but occasionally they do offer refurbished items as well.  Go ahead and do the WOOT!

I love Woot. I've purchased a few things. I got the 13 year old a refurbished mp3 player for $20 and it is tiny and has a screen. It works great and if she breaks it I won't be upset since it only cost $20 :)

Over on the Cooking Light message boards they sometimes mention a "woot-off". I know everyone over there gets ALL excited those days. LOL

I'll have to go check out Woot.
